Can you remember a year more challenging than 2020?
Around 2 Million people died in the pandemic, people are locked into their house, the world economy has fallen, and lots more. Besides all of this negativity, the only plus point is the development of technology.
We are truly thrilled and excited to announce that 2020 has also been a great year for Themewinter, a concern of XpeedStudio. With our record-breaking growth and ultimate success, we’ve walked together hand-in-hand to take another leap to the new year.
2020 was a year of fun and lots of productivity for the XpeedStudio team
We’ve added new team members, explored new verticals, and most importantly consumed more caffeine than ever!
Let’s shed some light to this wonderful year we spent while expanding our horizon and building great relationships!

Our Journey to 241K+ Happy Members
2020 has been an incredible year for the XpeedStudio team with dedication and hard work by everyone on the team. Of course, we have achieved a lot because of this dedication.
And none of our achievements will be possible without you! Yes, you, the users of our products, who show their appreciation to us, always push us for new innovation, and provide their valuable feedback.
With all of your support and as a sign of appreciation one of our products, ElementsKit, has crossed the milestone of 100K active installations in June 2020.
After that, there was no looking back! We have crossed another achievement of 200K installations in November 2020. Yes, it takes only 5 months!
We are seriously overwhelmed to get this much support and love from the entire community.
To be honest, we were seriously worried about the second milestone because of COVID-19 pandemic. As all of our employees started to work remotely, it was a serious concern about productivity.
Fortunately, the team worked tremendously well from home. And, the achievement of our second milestone was just a reflection of their hard work and dedication. That’s why our pace of growing doesn’t slow down rather than gets faster!
Kudos to the team!
Growth in Revenue
Just like the previous year, we have experienced a healthy growth in 2020 too. We are proudly announcing that our revenue increased 276.32% in 2020 over last year. It’s way better than our growth rate from last year.
Our revenue increased 276.32% in 2020

Well, that’s not the end of overall development. Our talented developers commit 7125 times on git and it results in 314 releases only in 2020. And all of these achievements become possible because of our skilled developers.
Hats off to them!
Apart from the developer team, our design team, digital marketing team, and content team are also rapidly growing.
We have hired nine promising team crews in XpeedStudio. It demonstrates our aspiration and dream for growing further.
We encourage our team members to learn new things continuously. We try our best to keep the work atmosphere friendly. We also arrange yearly exams, day-long workshops, and professional training to hone the skills of the team.
To improve our working environment even more, we moved to a bigger office (3200 square feet) in 2020.
Things We’ve Introduced in 2020
As we have mentioned earlier, the whole XpeedStudio team worked really great in 2020. As a result of their dedication, 2020 was a massive year of success for releasing the major versions of our products on WordPress.org.
Besides those updates, we have also released a brand new product in 2020 named MetForm. It’s a drag and drop form builder for Elementor. Users can build any type of contact form, login form, subscription form, feedback form, multi-step forms, etc by using MetForm.
Besides developing the new products, we had continuously updated our previous products to improve the user experience. For example, we added the live chat feature for our clients to get instant help from our professional support team.
