New Feature: Live Stream

Josh Pigford on February 19, 2014

From the start, I’ve wanted Baremetrics to be a service that felt constantly useful. Every time you log in, I want you to be able to glean some new bit of info or gain some new tool for the proverbial toolbox.

Today is a step towards making that a reality with the launch of the Live Stream.

The Live Stream gives you a, wait for it, “live stream” of activity related to your business.

Initially this includes new signups, charges, cancellations, upgrades, downgrades and failed charges.

The Dashboard now becomes something you can leave open all day and glance at occasionally to spot trends.

Things like failed charges or cancellations become more obvious and allow you to dig deeper to see what’s going on and what you can do about it. Or seeing a stream of high-dollar charges can be a confidence boost you need for the day.

In addition, you’ll notice there are some small business insight nuggets in the stream. For instance, if someone subscribes to a plan, you’ll see the LTV of that new subscriber. Or if someone downgrades, you’ll see how much MRR was lost with that transaction.

This feature is definitely still in its infancy (as noted by the “Super Beta” label), so your feedback is absolutely welcome and appreciated.

You can see our own Live Stream in the Baremetrics demo, which uses our actual financial data.

Josh is most famous as the founder of Baremetrics. However, long before Baremetrics and until today, Josh has been a maker, builder, and entrepreneur. His career set off in 2003 building a pair of link directories, ReallyDumbStuff and ReallyFunArcade. Before he sold those for profits, he had already started his next set of projects. As a design major, he began consulting on web design projects. That company eventually morphed into Sabotage Media, which has been the shell company for many of his projects since. Some of his biggest projects before Baremetrics were TrackThePack, Deck Foundry, PopSurvey, and Temper. The pain points he experienced as PopSurvey and Temper took off were the reason he created Baremetrics. Currently, he's dedicated to Maybe, the OS for your personal finances.
