Unveiling Dub.co's New Chapter

Today, I'm excited to announce that I'm starting a company around Dub.co.

We're building the link management infrastructure for you to create marketing campaigns, link sharing features, and referral programs.

Here's how it all started – and where we're going.

The Early Days

Back in 2022, I built Dub.co as a side project to solve an internal need we had at Vercel – sharing links on social platforms (X, LinkedIn, and iMessage) with beautiful Open Graph images to improve click-through rates.

The product was fully open-source and quickly gained a lot of traction – it reached #1 on Hacker News and was even trending on GitHub for a little while.

Over the next 12 months, Dub.co continued to grow – mostly through word of mouth, without spending a cent on paid marketing.

2023 was a phenomenal year for @dubdotco. ◆ 13.8K @github stars ◆ 250K links created ◆ 16.5M clicks tracked ◆ 1.7K domains added ◆ Increased MRR by 13x Can't wait to take things to the next level in 2024 🚀

And we're just getting started.

The Future

In 2024, we're planning to double down on the following areas:

1. New features

We're working on several exciting new features, including:

  • Referral links: Turn your Dub.co short links into referral links and track conversion events (e.g. signups, purchases, etc.)
  • Link in bio: Create beautiful & performant landing pages and showcase your best links
  • Analytics API: Easily build link sharing features with our REST API and embed whitelabeled analytics into your app with our Analytics API

2. Integrations

We're planning to build integrations with various platforms:

We're also looking to create a marketplace that will allow anyone to build their own integrations with Dub.co – stay tuned!

3. Developer Experience

At Dub.co, we want to provide our users with the best developer experience possible.

To do that, we will be officially launching our REST API, as well as dub SDKs for Node, PHP, Python, and many more soon.

I'm excited to take on the role of CEO and build out an all-star team to take Dub.co to the next level.
