The year 2023 was challenging, yet thriving for us. We overcame challenges in performing our daily work across all the departments, enjoyed every bit of the work, and notched up resounding success with both our existing product line and the products to come.
Countless fun moments with teammates, surprise birthday party celebrations of coworkers, and casual chitchat with colleagues, these were regular activities at the premises of XpeedStudio (the parent company behind GetGenie).
We are almost past 2023 but embarking on a new year will feel dull if the happenings of last year aren’t recapped.
So, let’s jump right in…

The Awesome Journey of GetGenie in 2023
GetGenie made tremendous strides in 2023 in terms of downloads, active installations, reach, traction, sales, and revenue generation.
Throughout 2023, the AI content writer received 205,000+ downloads and 8K+ active installations in WordPress alone. In August 2023, the AI writer hit 10K active installations in WordPress and is on the rise as time progresses.
Although GetGenie was released as a WordPress AI content tool, it featured a SaaS interface in early 2023 to let any website owner avail of the tool. And the result was fantastic! More and more people showed zeal to grab GetGenie and now we have an enormous number of GetGenie users worldwide.
Both WordPress and non-WordPress users capitalized on the utility of the AI writer, resulting in higher usage, downloads, sales, and revenue than in 2022.

Activities of the Team Behind GetGenie in 2023!
The year 2023 provided the team XpeedStudio (the people behind the scenes of GetGenie and many other products) with more hustle and bustle. From rich training sessions to fun activities, the entire year was full of buzz, excitement, and learning.
Let’s have a quick look at some of the notable activities we made in 2023 –
Enlightening Learning and Training Sessions for our Team Members
We always encourage our team members to keep enriching their knowledge, industry and non-industry alike. To motivate them, we used to organize regular weekly learning sessions within office time to let them enhance and share their knowledge on various burning issues.
Aside from learning, we consider training to be an indispensable part of self-growth.
Last year, we successfully conducted multiple training sessions, including an instructive HR session.
The session primarily educated all our team members about the automation and integration of HR activities.
Sponsoring WordCamp Asia 2023
We were a proud Ari sponsor in WordCamp Asia 2023!
At the event, our booth featured all our products with a presentable display. We welcomed participants to our booth, talked to them, and answered their queries about our products.
We also organized fun games and dealt out cool gifts & swags to the winners. Overall, the event was a memorable and successful one for us as a company.
In-house Table Tennis Tournament
We took part in scores of fun and recreational activities last year, including the indoor table tennis tournament, team dinner, and more.
The table tennis tournament unified members from multiple departments and solidified mutual rapport and bonding besides creating an electrifying sporting atmosphere.
Annual Day Tour
We also made sure our employees enjoyed the refreshing air and outdoor fun activities by organizing an annual day tour in mid-2023.
The day tour not only freshened up our team members but also gave impetus to their work.
Gala Night to Appreciate Employee Performance
Early 2023, we organized a grand event named “Gala Night” to reward our team members for their performances. We awarded our team members under different categories, including Best Performer, Best Idea Generator, and Emerging Talent for their valuable contributions to the company.
The special attraction of the program was the annual profit share distribution with the team members. Our Founder & CEO Mr. Ataur Rahman issued cheques to the employees entitled to receive the profit share publicly.
Finally, the event culminated with a grand buffet dinner party in which all the team members took part and feasted to their heart’s content.
Other Notable Achievements of XpeedStudio
But first, a brief introduction…
Other Products and Brands of XpeedStudio
Wpmet is our oldest and known brand dedicated to WordPress plugins, SaaS, and AI product development. Under this brand, we introduced a number of products, including ElementsKit, MetForm, ShopEngine, and Wp Social.
Right at the inception of 2023, we aimed to work on several new products and the good news is that we not only kicked off our work on all these products duly but also rounded off substantial portions of our development work in 2023. We are optimistic about releasing all the products in the first half of 2024.
Apart from that, the growth and success of our existing products continued to explode in the previous year. All of GetGenie, ElementsKit, MetForm, ShopEngine, and Wp Social flourished and generated targeted revenue for us.
ElementsKit – Reached 1M+ Active Installations
This year, ElementsKit notched up multiple landmarks. Last year, I mentioned reaching the 1 million user mark soon. We had a resounding success of hitting 900,000 active installations in January this year. Two months after that, the iconic ElementsKit page builder hit the dream figure of 1M active installations.
And the good news is the number of users of ElementsKit is on the rise as time progresses. Now, we are itching to touch the 2M figure mark within the next few months.
MetForm – Attained a Massive Number of Users
In 2023, MetForm achieved 2 cracking landmarks that we were long craving. August marked the reach of 200K users while it took merely 4-5 months for the form builder to hit 300K active installations.
On top of that, MetForm attained nearly 2M downloads only in 2023. That’s absolutely enthralling!
ShopEngine – Achieved Great Success:
ShopEngine is one of our key products that has hit 30K active installations and over 250K downloads in 2023. Since its launch, ShopEngine has won over thousands of WooCommerce users worldwide by providing complete WooCommerce store building and customization solutions.
Wp Social and WP Ultimate Review – Reached Important Milestones
Wp Social and WP Ultimate Review both have fared splendidly this year. Wp Social has reached active installations and downloads of nearly 30K and 400K respectively. The performance of WP Ultimate Review is decent as well.
All the credit goes to you guys for making it possible for us to have such a flourishing year!

They were the “Bronze” winners (3rd place) for the categories “Best Elementor Addon” and “Best Ecommerce Tool” respectively in the WP Awards.
