Hi all,

Matt here from Auckland, New Zealand. Long time lurker, first time poster, and have read the Fastlane Millionaire 8 years ago when I ordered in 2010.

I've been in digital marketing for about 10 years officially, but was doing it longer before my first full time job.

Last year I was frustrated at work, and started building a SaaS (monthly subscription, 'software as a service' product) to make my day job a bit easier. These days, the service is my side hustle, which I'm here to learn to help grow, and share my experience so far to help others.

You can read the backstory on my product here - it was written 10 months ago, but I'll have the 2018 update coming soon :smile2:

Cheers,
Matt

Thanks for posting, the link you provided is very informative. Anyone getting started should take a read.

As of December 31st Pulse has under 100 paying customers. Our basic plan is just $USD19per month, so we don’t need hundreds or thousands of customers to make Pulse a kick-a$$ tool. We just need enough to cover costs, and provide a bit of beer and coffee money.

Impressive and very exciting!

However I should make mention; your website sprung an SSL error for me. (Insecure content) -- Isn't your software supposed to flag that?

Thanks for sharing.

Hah! It is! I've been soooo busy on the day job that I didn't notice this. Thanks, fixing it now.

Edit: Fixed.

@Mattsaas - I read your article, very well written and informative. I'm building/launching a SaaS MVP of my own...nice to hear others are in the trenches doing the same!
Nice! What niche are you in, and hows your progress?
