TMBA 238: 9 Months Into A SaaS Project – 5 Things We’d Do Differently

Podcast | Download | Stitcher | iTunes

People have been asking us to open up a little bit more about some of our specific business ventures so this week we’re going to be talking about our new software-as-a-service product, We’re 9 months into the company, and we’ve already faced some significant challenges. On this week’s episode we’ll be discussing the 5 things that we’d do differently if we were starting up a SaaS business today.

Listen to this week’s show and learn:

  • Why you need to be avoiding “the idea trap.”
  • How to focus on the features your customers are interested in instead of the ones that will make you the most money.
  • Why you shouldn’t be undervaluing design as a competitive advantage.
  • The important difference between painful problems and profitable problems.
  • Why we thought we’d be the next Steve Jobs (and why we bombed at that).
