Josh Pigford


Interview with Josh Pigford, Founder of Baremetrics. Josh is @Shpigford and writes regularly on Baremetric's blog and his own blog at joshpigford.com.

In this episode, Josh talks about he got his first customers for Baremetrics by reaching out to friends of his who were also the owners of SaaS businesses. He says that if he hadn't been able to get any of his friends to pay, then he wouldn't have been able to get anyone else to pay for it. For the first few months of running Baremetrics, Josh talks about how most of his customers came from Twitter. Baremetrics solved enough of a pain that people would Tweet about it and recommend it to their friends. In the past couple months, Josh has gotten new customers for Baremetrics by posting on its blog and being very transparent about how Baremetrics is doing. For example, Josh opened up Baremetric's own Baremetrics dashboard to the public, which means anyone can see the MRR, ARR, and tons of other metrics from Baremetrics. Josh's transparency about his own company's metrics led to a special deal with Buffer, where Buffer proceeded to open up its own Baremetrics dashboard to the public.
