These are the steps I followed to build and scale a software (that I coded myself) to $20k MRR.
If you want to learn to code, I made an intro class on Edvanc here: https://go.edvanc.com/coding-101
This is probably the most important aspect of building a saas business. If you don’t understand your customer or the market, there is no way you will be able to get any customers.
There is a solid reason that you want to market BEFORE you build the software. You want to start getting leads as soon as you validate the idea. Even if you end up never launching your software, you now have some contacts you can reach out to for ideas!
Protoype and design the user interface first – trust me on this. It’s hard enough to figure out the full stack and which framework/coding language to use. Make it easy on yourself and start with drawing out the interface in MS paint. heh.
Content. Marketing…. Build an authority in your niche using a blog and other content as the crutch. If you can make your SaaS brand stand out and show you know your stuff in the market, you will get all the customers.
