Split-based CodeAnywhere just confirmed to Netocratic that they have reached over 100,000 users of their cloud coding editor available as a web, iOS and Android application. CodeAnywhere co-founder Ivan Burazin confirmed the user number as well as made a point of CodeAnywhere being the only multiplatform code editor in the ‘cloud’ available in the world.

CodeAnywhere lets users code in their web browser while connecting to their favorite service such as (S)FTP, Dropbox and even Github. The team received around 25,000 EUR of seed funding in 2011. from a local angel investor.

So how did the small team of co-founder Vedran Jukić and Ivan Burazin make this happen? According to Burazin, while Jukić was busy coding new features such as as the announced integration with Amazon Web Services, he was scouring forums and blogs, looking for people tht had a problem their product could solve.

They included users asking questions on “how to edit code in a browser” as well as “how to connect to FTP from anywhere”. CodeAnywhere was their solution, but Burazin says it was not about doing a hard sell. He had to be very careful.

How to Get Your 1st Users – CodeAnywhere’s Example

Ivan’s preferred steps were:

  • The product has to be a solution to a problem;
  • Search and serch for people that have a question your product answers;
  • When you find a question on a forum or blog posts, give your answer;
  • Never ever write something like: “My app is the best solution for that” – they’ll see you as a spammer. Instead be very, very polite and truthful, by telling them that:”I have an application that could solve your problem – Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any question or need any help.”

“It’s not plain “marketing” – it’s solving a problem” – says Burazin. While the team is taking care of all their technical expenses through the revenue from their 1.8 percent of users, they are now focusing on increasing the number of paid users. The product is obviously something users want and Burazin and Jukić believe they’ll be profitable by the end of the year.
