My journey to $1000 MRR with AI2SQL

WE DID IT! 🎊 AI2sql just hit $1000 MRR.

For those who don't know, AI2SQL , is a powerful AI-based tool that helps users to generate SQL queries without any prior knowledge of SQL. It's all thanks to our amazing customers. We couldn't have done it without you!

  • I am so proud of the journey I have taken so far, building this startup from scratch with 100% bootstrapped.

  • I am especially grateful to Greg Brockman and OpenAI for supporting me from the very beginning of this journey.

  • One more thing, our AI2sql tool is included in Sequoia Gen AI market map, which is a great validation of the potential of our tool.

One of the biggest lessons I learned during this journey is that perseverance and support from others can help you achieve great things.


But this is just the beginning, we have big plans for the future of AI2SQL and we can't wait to share them with you. Stay tuned for updates and new features that will make SQL accessible for everyone. 🚀

That's it for my thread! I hope you enjoyed it! If you found it inspiring, please share this story with others who may benefit from it. Thanks for following along! 🙌

    Great work on reaching 1,000 MRR with AI2SQL!

    Every memebership business main problem is the customer churn who left your product.

    There are many reasons for it like:

    • Price
    • Product quality
    • no further needed
    • Find alternative
    • Poor customer service
    • Lack of information on how to use it
    • Lack of engagement

    As you continue to grow your business, reducing customer churn is crucial in maintaining and increasing revenue.

    Our tool, Churnfree, utilizes advanced analytics and targeted retention strategies to help you identify and retain at-risk customers. By decreasing churn and keeping more customers, you can see a significant boost in your MRR.

    We would be happy to provide more information and discuss how Churnfree Customer Retention Tool can benefit your business.

    Keep up the fantastic work! Wish you best of luck for future goals.

    That's awesome news @mergisi. 1.2 m views are also amazing, but nothing beats the MRR.

    Fancy looking at https://skilledup.life - once subscribed, you can build teams with free talent we have. They can help with almost anything. We are getting closer to having a pool of 20,000 (just 197 short).

    this is cool even as a developer. thankfully, i don't write sql by hand anymore thanks to prisma.

    curious, where did your majority of customers come from? did instagram reels bring a lot of customers? or greg's tweet?
