    @eliquid flash news: yesterday one guy pinged me that he wants to buy my business. To be honest, I didn't expect that one after just 2 months after first release. So far I have 23 customers (all from LTD deal) with no marketing budget so pure profit. I asked for a number (because it's hard for...

    Exactly, always behind someone. Not a great place to be. Is there any resource that I can read about becoming authority? I find myself always getting back to researching exotic cars prices, but I can't think about making business out of it lol so I need to find something that I can solve for...

    Wow, that's actually very true. Yes, that's why when LTD guys asked me for a roadmap I said I don't have any - because I don't want to feel under pressure. So I went with you pay for what is here right now plus possible updates (and I do update app - recently with nice selection of filters and...

    @eliquid I thought I will directly ask for little help. I have launched my SaaS last month and through LTD's (lifetime deals) I have now 22 customers. There is also community group for the app with 38 members (no requirement to be a customer, feel invited to check it out). I once made a survey...

    Yes, and there are more to come. Probably even API which Word won't have in any time soon :) That's actually a business model on it's own. Forgot how it's called, but you take i.e. Craigslist and then select one of the categories and you can make a whole business around it. My angle is to make...

    My market is SMB, but more on the small side. It's not about being rich or lazy - Word has bigger learning curve, for sure. To be honest, I first heard of this function in MS Word after I released my product. I'm bringing ease of use to the table - people don't want to think and scratch their...

    Quick update: I officially launched a month ago and I already have 22 customers. I thought through again how to price it and this is what is working for me: Even though couple of people said that I should've limited number of spots and lower price a bit (because Lifetime Deals tend to be...

    GOLD! Ask Me Anything About SaaS ( I'm building my 7th )

    Could you elaborate more on how LTD was more of a technical issue? :D Yes, not sure if it's a trend though. To make SaaS sustainable (SaaStainable? lol) monthly payments are better for business. Otherwise, cost of acquiring new customers will be much higher. I treat LTD customers as investors...

    GOLD! Ask Me Anything About SaaS ( I'm building my 7th )

    Just recently I created lifetime deal and so far I got 13 customers (almost 800 euros made in two days). I decided to do that because I have almost no cost for keeping it running.

    GOLD! Ask Me Anything About SaaS ( I'm building my 7th )

    I just recently finished my first SaaS - DocTemple but I made a mistake of not testing early and not having people already waiting for that service. Now I struggle with finding my first customer.

    Stable job prevents me from making more money

    Thanks, good points! It's nice to hear out from fellow software dev. How it's going for you because I believe you make standalone apps for desktop (as far as I know C#) so it's yet a bit different than making cloud app (most of them out there)?

    Can you elaborate a bit more on that? I wish that would be that easy :D

    Stable job prevents me from making more money

    Actually my goal is to have more personal freedom (that implies traveling) AND building wealth. Probably I should start with the latter (wealth creation) so I can achieve the former (freedom). I'm 31 now. My closest goals are: to make at least $5k/month (for peaceful life) from my own things...

    @Fox from Fox's Web Design School? Woah - I wonder what brought him to Poland, it's kind of specific country to go to.
