BEE Content Design, a leading digital content design platform, today announced an industry milestone of $10M in annual recurring revenue. With over 10k paying customers and 6.5 million sessions of its visual content builder across hundreds of SaaS applications, BEE’s financial milestone is a pivotal turning point for the software platform.
In a world where most people work remotely and time is of the essence, BEE helps individuals and teams at 300,000+ businesses, from startups to large brands like Amazon, Netflix, and Disney, create digital content quickly and collaborate effectively. It does so in two ways: with BEE Pro, directly on its website at beefree.io; and with the BEE Plugin embedded in over 600 software applications that have integrated its visual builders to bring fast, no-code content design to their end users. BEE Plugin’s customers include Iterable, Freshworks, CareerBuilder, LeadSquared, and many more.
“2022 has been a historic year for BEE characterized by transformation, outperformance, and product innovation,” said Massimo Arrigoni, CEO. “As we moved through the year, momentum continued to build in both of our product lines. On the embeddable tool’s side, we see more SaaS companies integrating our visual builders in their software, benefiting from innovative features that they can immediately release to their end users, like the ability to design content directly in mobile view. And BEE Pro – our online design suite – saw a 60% increase in signups (now over 15,000 per month) as we further embraced a product-led growth strategy with a switch to an Enterprise Freemium model.”
