The rise and rise of Balsamiq

Interesting post from Peldi Guilizzon, the CEO and founder of Balsamiq, reflecting back upon 2010 for Balsamiq (A look back at 2009).

One of the most noticeable things is that they exceeded their profit targets by 4 times their goal and had a 70% profit margin turning over $1,626,528 with 3 full-time staff.

Their transactions do seem to have tailed off in December.

I wonder if this is just a reflection of the season, or whether the overwhelming number of free and paid for competitors with eat into their market share.

  1. Hello Iain, thanks for the post!

    Just a quick note to let you know that we’ve noticed that november and december are always slow, due to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

    Sales are back up more than ever in January so far! šŸ™‚

    Have a great day!
