Analytics For Your Ghost Blog

Ghostboard by David Burgos (@daburix) from Spain

What’s your motivation for creating your product?

When I moved my blog from WordPress to Ghost I missed some stats I think are important when blogging, so I started to build something for myself and then I turn it into a product for everyone else

What are your product features?

– Instant setup: just paste a line in your Ghost admin and it’s done

– GDPR compliant and cookie-free, out-the-box

– Don’t need Google Analytics or whatever, it just work and you get all their analytics like Live or Content reports.

– Also exclusive blog-focused analytics for Posts, Pages, Tags, post per month, best time to post, much more and more incoming!

When did you launch?

Mid-August.

Where did you launch?

BetaList

Hacker News

Product Hunt

How did your launch go?

– 110 upvotes on Product Hunt

– Frontpage on Hacker News on 10th August, at 11:16 AM ES Position #16

– Almost 6K visits

– 20 signups

– 8 blogs setup it

– Then 3 customers, $15 MRR

It’s funny because some days ago I launched the 2.0 version and get shitty metrics

Any specific launch tips? Or things you would do differently?

– The more you launch, the better your launch is

– Don’t worry about metrics in general platforms, unless your target audience is there.

– Neither don’t worry if don’t get noise in the press and social media. At all. I also got some likes and mentions but no signups. In the end, I prefer silence and signups.

– Only worry about what your customers say and especially, what they do (pay, cancel, retention, come back, etc.)
