New Year, New LaunchPass: Celebrating 2023 & What’s Coming In 2024

By Dan • 6 min read

NY Year in Review

2023 marks the end of our seventh (and best ever) year!

From our humble beginnings in 2016 as a bootstrapped startup in Arizona with no venture capital to this day, we’ve single-handedly pioneered new digital frontiers in pay-to-access chat communities, and it’s all thanks to you – our amazing community.

As entrepreneurs and creators ourselves, we’ve built this business with our own money and hard work, and we’re committed to our mission of helping you build yours.

Here’s what we achieved together over 2023, and what’s coming in 2024.

Celebrating 2023

LaunchPass became an integral part of thousands of communities earning millions of dollars in revenue, with some earning more than $2 million in monthly recurring revenue!

Our team has been working tirelessly, pulling countless late nights and 15+ hour days, seven days a week, to ensure our communities have a prosperous year. In 2023 alone our team grew by over 67% and collectively logged over 100,000 hours to achieve 99.99% application uptime, deliver innovative new features, and help new communities launch and thrive.

Product Milestones

We’ve been busy this year, launching features that empower you and your community:

Discord OAuth: We’ve overhauled our onboarding process for community members, sunsetting activation codes and replacing them with Discord OAuth for seamless one-click onboarding.

Enhanced Checkout Widget: Our checkout widget got a complete makeover, ensuring smoother transactions for your members.

 

Apple Pay and Google Pay: We’ve added even more payment options to help streamline payments and make our high-converting checkout pages even more seamless.

 

Rewardful & Refersion: We’ve made Affiliate Marketing easy. Turning your supporters into powerful ambassadors is now a breeze.

 

Customer Portal: A new, streamlined way for your members to self-manage their subscriptions easily, from updating billing information to viewing subscription details and beyond.

 

What’s Rolling Out Now

As we speak, we’re rolling out features that are set to take your community experience to the next level.

Member List: Our member list feature will provide deep insights and greater control in your membership, helping you nurture a more engaged community. Rolling out Q1 2024.

 

Crypto: We’re set to roll out support for hundreds of cryptocurrencies with multiple wallet options in Q1 2024. Want it now? Get in touch and get access in beta.
