All the hype around CSS background patterns had a very positive side-effect.
It raised brand awareness for MagicPattern and headed many new people into the product.
I got 3 annual and 3 monthly subscriptions since the Reddit launch last Saturday. But the most important thing is that these people seem really engaged with the product.
Since then I have daily conversations with users and strive to understand their needs and solve their problems. The result? Happy users and impressed by the product and its customer support. At the same time, I slowly narrow down the main persona for my product!
In the end, the best feeling is when an annual subscriber tells you how useful and great your product is!
