Ymir Report #25 — 20 subscriber milestone!

Published over 2 years ago • 1 min read

Heya friend!

Carl here. You signed up to receive updates about Ymir, the WordPress serverless DevOps platform that I’m building.


INTRO

So small milestone this week, Ymir hit 20 subscribers! It took about a year to get to this point. I wish I'd hit faster, but I'm growing, and I'm grateful for that!

Overall, this was a really productive cycle. I had a lot of energy and wasn't feeling too worn out. I got a lot done on the product side as well as marketing side, which isn't always the case.

We'll discuss that in the sections below.


PRODUCT

You can always view the history of Ymir's product development at https://ymirapp.com/changelog.

This cycle I continued to work on the Ymir CLI. I implemented a lot of the left over quality of life changes. I added some new commands to export and import databases. I also added some other commands.

I think this will wrap up my focus on the Ymir CLI for now. I think this cycle will be more the runtime and plugin. But we'll see how it goes!


MARKETING

The main focus for the marketing week was videos. I hadn't tried making a video since I upgraded to an M1 MBP. And wow is it fast!

I went from having to spend 2h with an unusable computer to recording and having the video uploaded in less than 30 min. This makes it much more appealing to make videos. And this week, I did three:

I think I'll start recording a lot of the commands and just various programming things. I got a lot of good comments from doing the videos. And, like I said, it's painless to do them now.

I also started working on the next article. I'm aiming to publish it next marketing week.


BUSINESS

You can always view Ymir's up-to-date business metrics at ymirapp.com/open. They're updated every 10 minutes.

As I said, I hit 20 subscribers! Yay! Currently, I have one active trial. Pretty that one will convert so we should hit 21 subscribers next cycle.

I've had some more inbound interest. So maybe we get a new trial from that soon? We'll see.

Outside of that, the next milestone will be 1k MRR. I don't expect to hit it before April. And that's if nothing goes wrong lol

Heya friend! Carl here. You signed up to receive updates about Ymir, the WordPress serverless DevOps platform that I’m building. INTRO Hey there! It's been a few weeks since my last update. My time in Japan wasn't as productive as I'd hoped it to be. The time zone wasn't friendly to me this time around and I wasn't able to get into a good work groove.Because of that, I mainly focused on consulting work and had nothing to share related to Ymir. I did manage to get some work done towards the...

Heya friend! Carl here. You signed up to receive updates about Ymir, the WordPress serverless DevOps platform that I’m building. INTRO Greetings from Japan! I've been here for the past two weeks after going to WordCamp Asia. This is probably my last trip to Asia for the foreseeable future. I will probably go to CloudFest instead of WordCamp Asia next year. I can't afford to do both. There has been little work done on Ymir because I had friends visiting Tokyo until last week. I've also been...

Heya friend! Carl here. You signed up to receive updates about Ymir, the WordPress serverless DevOps platform that I’m building. INTRO Heya! A bit late sending this report again. The last two weeks have been challenging personally and I've just focused on myself more. I did manage to get some things done, but I mostly took time for myself. #selfcare I got one product and one marketing change out. Business is still roughly in the same shape as before. I'm still thinking about things and...
