Here are some real life success stories of starting a user feedback app:
1. Conversion Crimes ($120K/year)
Quinn Zeda (from Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico) started Conversion Crimes about 2 years ago.
Hello, my name is Quinn Zeda and I am the founder and CEO of Conversion Crimes.

2. Refiner ($192K/year)
Moritz Dausinger (from Paris, France) started Refiner over 2 years ago.

3. Customeer ($600K/year)
JUAN (from Madrid, Community of Madrid, Spain) started Customeer over 5 years ago.

4. Upvoty ($300K/year)
Mike Slaats (from Eindhoven, North Brabant, The Netherlands) started Upvoty over 3 years ago.
Hey there! 👋 My name is Mike and I’m the founder of home improvement platform Vindy and user feedback tool Upvoty.
I’m a single founder and I don’t work with VC or any external money: I finance everything with the profits of my main startup Vindy which is doing around $1,000,000 a year. I don’t share a lot about the progress on Vindy since it’s only live in The Netherlands and Belgium. I focus on spreading the word on launching, building and scaling Upvoty for now since there are a lot of lessons to share.
5. iBranch Recruiters ($61.7K/year)
Tshepiso Leinane (from Gaborone, Botswana) started iBranch Recruiters over 5 years ago.
My name is Tshepiso Leinane, a 24-year-old young man from Serowe, which is the second-largest village in the central district of Botswana.
Over 360 companies across the globe use our platform to recruit African talent, and yes, you could be next too.
6. PlaybookUX ($1.8M/year)
Lindsey Allard (from New York, NY, USA) started *PlaybookUX * almost 4 years ago.
Hi everyone! I’m Lindsey Allard, originally from Boston and currently living in New Hampshire. I started PlaybookUX just over 3 years ago. Our goal was (and still is!) to help businesses quickly get feedback on their digital assets.
