The Story Behind Baremetrics
Josh Pigford, Founder
What inspired Baremetrics?
I was running 2 other SaaS products at the time and I couldn’t find any analytics tools that were easy to set up. They all required a bunch of engineering work to get set up. Plus, they all were banking on me to get the data in to them correctly…one mistake and all the numbers would be off. I figured there had to be an easier way, so I built Baremetrics with the intent of making the barrier to entry as low as possible for business insights.
How did you get started?
I built the first version by myself over the course of about 8 days. That version got me a couple thousand dollars in recurring revenue in the first 6-8 weeks. I think re-built it from scratch based on the feedback I got from paying customers over those 6-8 weeks.
