From “oh no!” to “oh yeah!”, we’re sharing everything on our journey to 100,000 downloads of our open source CRM.

I’m going to share you the experience of our journey from the scratch till the 100,000 th download, which has not been smooth throughout. Have been learning every single day since inception; continue to gathering a lot – in building a CRM that stands out in the crowd.

Every episode in this series – “Journey to 100,000 downloads” gives you an insight on how things may get haywire when you launch a new startup (a SaaS or an Open source Platform). In addition, Inarrate step-by- step resolutions to counteract situations to attract the prospect for Signing Up.

I am sure you are much familiar with the problems (as we do!) that you are going to read in this 1st Episode of our journey to 100,000+ downloads. We brainstormed the most probable & workable cocktails that gifted us first 2000+ serious users in just 6 weeks. Based on their feedback making WakeUpSales even better.

– and trust me this is worth the effort because the results were overwhelming.

On July ‘2016, I was discussing with a speaker in an event about WakeUpSalesand why we chose to build our platform with Rails. He told in a very baffled tone –

“Are you sure this CRM platform would work! This is because there are so many players who have already made a mark in this space.”

( At that moment we had mere 25+ users )!

Trust me, for a moment I got little frustrated as he was one of the most influential startup advisors – hearing such a question from him did bring in a negative surge in my heart and mind.

But then my reply was – “that’s true we have a long road ahead with so many other big players we would be competing with. But, then again I see a huge demand of good solutions in today’s market.

What if a platform that can be completely customized with respect to users’ requirement, a platform that is easier to work with and completely automated, a driven workflow that can be aspired as per user’s requirements! A CRM that is intuitive to the core!

So does it end here!

Absolutely not! We welcome you to join us on our journey to 100,000 downloads and how we fix issues, find solutions on our way to achieving this.
