Our Journey from 0 to 100k+ Happy Members
Here’s a quick recap of our journey so far, and some milestones we have hit on the way.
We’ve published the pro version of HappyAddons at the end of September 2019. After that, there is no looking back! We continue our journey with great force. As a result, we achieved our first success within six months only. We reached our first milestone of 30,000 active installs in March 2020.
Then within the next three months, we crossed another benchmark of 50,000. We are so lucky to get this much love and support from the entire Elementor community.
We were really worried about the next milestone. As we all are working remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But HappyAddons ensures all the facilities keeping all the team members aligned. So that they can work together as a team from home.
That’s why the pace of growing never slows down. Rather it gets faster and we unlocked our biggest milestone of 2020. This December we’ve reached 100k active installations.
That means within 6 months, our user-base gets doubled in size.
How We Support People During Covid-19 Pandemic
It’s probably fair to say that 2020 has been a tough year for most of us. Our whole life might have been thrown upside down. Nearly half of the world’s 3.3 billion global workforces are at risk of losing their livelihoods. In this situation, we encouraged people to start their own online business.
During this pandemic, we inspired people to set up their online business using Elementor. For that, we introduced multiple WooCommerce widgets. Therefore, people can easily design their online shops and start earning money!
