Matt Visiwig @ SVG Backgrounds

Hey I’m Matt, a self-employed web dev working on my startup: SVG Backgrounds.

Spice up your webpage in seconds. SVG Backgrounds helps you quickly customize and apply fullscreen website visuals with tiny file sizes.

Matt Visiwig posted on PH in 2018 – the product gained a lot of attention and now he is making a growing collection of backgrounds for 5$/mo – got a first few sales that month.

Hit – 10K$ ARR. Now focused on metrics and is working on a homepage & subscription page.

So it led me to focus on the homepage and subscription page. I recently updated the pricing and redesigned the subscription page completely.

This led to a little flurry of sales, and I will be making more tweaks over time. But this little boost in sales took me over $834/MRR to hit the big milestone of $10K ARR. I have a renewed focus on SVGBG!
