Hey there,

I have been working on a Saas app since March/April 2018 and I am not sure if I am going in the right direction. Here are some facts about my app:
  • It's a social media management app like Hootsuite, Buffer, etc. Currently, it looks more like AgoraPulse
  • For the moment it's literally (with only subtle differences) a copy of AgoraPulse
  • It only has two functionalities: publishing on Facebook and Youtube, and comment management (which is not even finished)
  • There are still bugs and many things related to the technical aspect which are not resolved
I feel like it's also important to share some personal stuff about me:
  • Last two years have been a little rough
  • I entered the job market
  • I had anxiety problems and experienced several panic attacks during the last 8 months. So some days I would be stressed because I was unable to work due to my anxieties, and then I would beat myself down because of this
  • Currently, I feel like I have less anxiety and can manage myself better
  • I never started any business before or any Saas app
The main problem that I see for the moment with my app is that it's only a pale copy of something that already exists. One day I saw a video of a guy who said that there is no need to innovate and that we can create a similar product and earn money by marketing it better. However, as I am approaching more and more the end of development I have more doubt about my success and feel like I am wasting my time.

Originally I wanted to put the app online for free and create a very close relationship with clients by making a video at least every two weeks. Ask them ideas and their needs on social media management and implement their ideas. However, I don't have a lot of time and the only solution that I see is to stop sleeping.

Then I thought about a feature that I wanted to develop in my app to differentiate myself, that would:
  • Check all comments for a period of time on a specific social media
  • Rank who commented the most and got more reactions
  • Allow the client to go directly on their profile to enter in contact with them
Currently, I see two actions that I can take:
  • Continue my original plan, and then implement the previous feature. The problem is that it's not original, and it's going to take more time
  • Create a micro-saas app consisting of the feature I mentioned above. This seems more easy and original
What do think about this?
