As predicted, our audience from Search Engine Optimization (SEO) has begun to recover delivering growth in overall MAU, hitting just under 3M.
As the U.S economy recently has been showing signs of stress and with the goal of getting to cash flow positive, we’ve taken concerted efforts to become more efficient with expenses and operating margin.
We’re pleased to report that our cash burn for Q4 was $600k, with a cash balance of US$4.2M as of June 30. We remain confident of becoming operationally cash flow positive in the next 12-18 months.
Advertising: We are on our way in FY23 to delivering double digit revenue growth in advertising, however this may be slower due to economic conditions. We will also continue to make strategic decisions to pull back on programmatic ad revenue to support growth in our subscription product.
Subscriptions: We have employed a new customer centric product strategy for FY23 aimed at restoring 5 star app ratings and rebuilding organic growth for the audience on the web, amongst other key growth drivers.
FY23 promises to be our most successful year yet. We are launching an array of new product upgrades that should support acceleration in our consumer revenues, and we aim to drive continued growth in advertising revenues.
While consumer trust continues to erode across many sources of information, inspiration and connection, Tinybeans has never been more relevant than today as we continue to place our stake in the ground as a trusted member of the family, which parents can count on for relevant content, safe connections and private photo sharing to help parents raise amazing kids.”
