@ugnich @GloatDev "Cheap" is the main differentiator. Everything else is the same. Ghost Pro, on the other hand, has better support, but you pay for it. 76 2 2.63% 0 1 0 / 0 0 1

Super happy with my race this morning. I came 6th in my age group and 13th overall 😇 (89 runners) I went for 01h06 and ended up with 01:06:07. It was very hot and on uneven trail so I’m very happy.

I’m running a 12km race tomorrow morning. I’ve never ever run that far! Though I managed to run a PB 10km this week in 53:19 🥳 Concurrently I’ve also run 50km in October so far; easily the furthest I’ve run in a fortnight! Nervous but excited. https://t.co/SzkTSeI60n 2,398 29 1.21% 10 4 0 / 0 0 15

I set up a carbon offset plan with @Ecologi_hq over a year ago. I've helped plant over 300 trees, offset 21.97 tonnes of carbon emissions and been climate *positive* (not neutral!) for 12 months now.

@petecodes They’ve been on my radar for a while, being based out here. It seems like they were doing OK. And they had only really targeted Nigeria so far; loads of room for growth. I know I wouldn’t turn down an offer from Stripe 😅 215 2 0.93% 0 1 0 / 0 0 1

Account switching is one of my favourite features on https://t.co/NyZf1RAslt! It was requested a number of times and paves the way for agencies or businesses (= higher ARPU) to easily monitor multiple accounts (= more customers) on ilo.

Had a third call with @5harath about @shoutoutso_ this morning. Next week, the coding begins! 💪 Excited to have a launch version scoped and ready to build out.

Seamless account switching is coming to https://t.co/NyZf1RS3K3! Sign in with Twitter while already logged in, and ilo will connect your accounts. (Accounts are simply billed separately; no unnecessary complexity added) https://t.co/8WAN1VVgv2 2,266 15 0.66% 3 0 0 / 0 8 4

@MikeCarbone The best way is to sign up and try it out! ilo shows a lot more data and has some unique charts and data sets. And I’m only just getting started.

@DanielZarick That’s an interesting take. With the slow uptake so far, maybe I’m not targeting the right segment of Twitter users. I think changing the product or adding features for businesses is the easiest way to increase revenue 612 15 2.45% 2 4 0 / 0 0 9
I’ve been thinking about MRR over the weekend. Honestly, I don’t think something like https://t.co/NyZf1RAslt (~$10/m) is a sustainable long-term play. I want 200 customers paying $50 not 1,000 customers paying $10. Subsail’s ARPU is around $50. I want more products like that. 12,534 624 4.98% 54 17 0 / 0 328 225
@johnjoubert Ghost is the best blogging software in my opinion, and it doesn’t need to be expensive. There are many hosts that are $15/m or under, or you can self-host for really cheap. 1,486 11 0.74% 5 2 1 / 0 0 3

10k MRR is like a magical number. I assume a lot of SaaS founders have that figure as a goal in the back of their minds.

Seriously considering creating some more Ghost themes. Substation sales have been irregular, but I've had a good month so far (6 sales in 7 days; best month is 15) I think the Ghost theme market is wildly underserved at the moment.

@linstobias Nice, Tobias! Congrats. From my (limited) experience, lifetime deals are amazing at launch. I used them both help validate the idea and to generate some early revenue.

@hnshah @ConvertKit @SubstackInc I’ve helped a number of people move from Substack to Ghost. It’s seamless to migrate paid subscribers (Stripe). The writing and publishing experience is very similar, but you run it on your own domain and with whatever theme you want. And if you self-host, you own everything. 586 5 0.85% 4 0 0 / 0 0 1

@benedictevans @davenemetz Wrong again about the developer. And it’s not “just” a headless CMS. You just just use as-is. You’re right that it’s not like Squarespace and Webflow but it’s a totally different product. I wouldn’t use Webflow for publishing/newsletter/memberships. 498 19 3.82% 2 1 0 / 0 0 16
@benedictevans @nickhiley @davenemetz Ghost sits next to WP between Substack and the site builders. You can change anything you want or build your own design with HTML/CSS. 142 1 0.70% 0 0 0 / 0 0 1

@davenemetz @benedictevans Right. Your only dev work was to set up self-hosting, which you avoid if you go with Ghost Pro, and theme customisation, which isn’t an option on Substack. $59 + $50 = $109 129 3 2.33% 0 0 0 / 0 0 3

@TalktoHenryJ @pauldm @Jason @7AustinL @SubstackInc @Ghost True! Both Substack and Ghost run on Stripe. You just need emails and Stripe customer IDs to import paid members into to Ghost. Happily moved a few people from Substack to Ghost with @gloatdev 215 17 7.91% 4 0 0 / 0 0 13
