PublishPress launched in January 2018. Today we're pleased to share the news that we've just reached a big milestone: 1,000 active customers!
We decided to celebrate by donating some money to the Philadelphia Zoo and asking their penguins to say “thanks” to everyone:
Seriously, we owe a big “Thanks” to all of you who use PublishPress.
Getting to 1,000 customers isn't easy. Unless you're a huge, viral sensation, it often takes software companies about 3 years to reach 1,000 customers. I found some examples of that in the WordPress world:
- WordPress hosts such as WPEngine, Flywheel and Pagely took about 3 years.
- WordPress services such as Metorik often take 3 years.
PublishPress launched in 2017 so it's also taken us 3 years.
Getting to this 1,000 customer mark helps us move towards our goal of making world-class publishing plugins for WordPress. It also enables us to support causes that we care about.
So to mark this 1,000 customer milestone, we're going to send gifts like this to any PublishPress customer who asks.
If you're an active PublishPress user, here's what to do …
Update: we've closed the offer for now. We're adopting penguins for people in 27 US states, Canada, England, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, Italy, Germany and Belgium.
We'll do our very best to get you a penguin, and donate to a good cause in your name.
Oceana does only ship to the United States, but we've identified some other similar, great conservation resources in Australia, South Africa and the Falklands / United Kingdom. If we can't ship you a penguin, we'll adopt one in your name.
