April was 🔥. Another month, another #openstartup report.

As of April 22, I officially make more money on the side then at my job. 🤯

More info: jmo.fyi/open

Things to focus on for April: Funnel tracking. More content. More features. Courses.
I did some content marketing efforts this month (my organic clicks were starting to dip).

I wrote two articles:

- closet.tools/poshmark-tips
- closet.tools/poshmark-30-mi…

The second one surprised me 👇
I wrote and published it just 5 days ago. I was targeting a *very easy* [0 ahrefs difficulty level] 480 searches/month keyword → "poshmark 30 minute method".

I've attached some screenshots of what happened.

Essentially, it ranked in the top 10 that SAME DAY. #3 today.

Feb 2019 #openstartup report:

Revenue: $3,740
Visitors: 42K
Mailing List: 4K

A reflection on (1) the business & (2) nomad life.

👇
(1) THE BUSINESS

Search traffic continues to rise.

There are now many days where the site gets 1k+ visitors from Google Search.
I tested a slide-out email subscribe CTA - I thought I would NEVER do this.

My email opt-in rate has always been pretty low. The results were phenomenal.

I implemented Feb 19, you can see the massive spike below.

Shoutout @Klaviyo for allowing me to do this so easily.

2/ This month started out in Thailand! I flew out to Bangkok and traveled with my mom and sister for two weeks.

Although I enjoyed traveling, it is hard to not work for that long... towards the end I started getting antsy - squeezing in a few hours of work every couple days...
3/ I got to Chiang Mai mid month (where I am now) and still struggled a bit to adjust. Wasn't sure what to expect... What's the life of a digital nomad like?

Turns out they just work a lot 😂

Was also lucky to find a few @wip'ers in CM - so that's been nice to have some friends

Awesome! @Wakefy_app's functionality has just been copied! Not by minor players, but by Spotify and Google themselves! This can only mean I might be onto something with Wakefy!
Just for Android devices, though. Hard to make that work on iOS as far as I know (without forcing users to leave their screen on the whole night). Plus, Wakefy was born with a different use case in mind. But still that's a copy – and only 4 months after Wakefy's launch.
Pattern:

If your product's main functionality is another successful product's lacking feature, chances are they'll just copy your whole product.

Solution:

Don't base your products entirely off another successful product.
