The 6 SaaS myths holding you back from $10k/mo (and a possible $750k-$2M exit)

I'm an Ex-Googler who has
>>Built 4 SaaS's
>>Been in Silicon Valley for 8+ years
>>Went from $0 to $15k/mo in 1 month

// THREAD //
Trust me:
You've been lied to about how tech startups work.

Learn the truth + hit $10k/mo with ease.
Here are 6 common SaaS myths that are 100% WRONG 👇
Myth #1 - Be original
Being unique is a waste of time.
Imagine Lyft said "Uber already did this... let's try something else"
Here's the way to go:
1) Copy an existing SaaS (preferably a successful one)

2) Tweak it in your own way
Don't make it harder on yourself.
Myth #2 - Tech is hard
They want you to think tech is hard.
You don't need an MIT degree
All you need:
- work ethic
- basic skills

I'm no master coder, and I do just fine.
The barrier to entry talent-wise is lower than you think.
Myth #3 - SaaS is hard
Just like with tech, they want you to think it's hard
False.
The tech is the easy part.
The hard part?
Marketing, business, etc.
Myth #4 - SaaS is expensive
Certain SaaS's can be.
In fact, some require major capital (7-figs) or third-party investments
BUT
Unless you're building the next DropBox, SaaS is surprisingly cheap.

(see my course to learn how to build a SaaS for low $: bit.ly/3yEBsSz)
Myth #5 - SaaS must be sexy
This is a big one.
Everyone wants to be the next Zuck/Jack/Elon/etc.
You don't need to be.
(trust me, you don't want that life)

Why not build a million-dollar biz instead?
Focus less on sexy ideas + more on offering value and profitability.
Myth #6 - The Silicon Valley Model is best
Copying Silicon Valley is a fast track to bankruptcy.

You don't have seed investors, private equity, millions of dollars, etc.
So, you can't build a SaaS the same way Silicon Valley does.
Find smaller niches with less SV competition.
Want the blueprint to building successful + profitable SaaS's?
Ones that sell for 32 - 74X MRR?

Why SaaS is a great business model

(and how it can make you A TON of money)

// THREAD //
First of all:

If you don't know me, I
>>ex-Googler
>>have built 4 SaaS's
>>have been in Silicon Valley for 8+ years
>>built Contact Ecom with @blackhatwizardd
>>grew a SaaS from $0 to $15k/mo in 1 month
Now that's out of the way,

Here's 6 reasons SaaS is the sh*t 👇
1) Easy to start

The tech world wants you to think it's hard.

Spoiler:
It's not.
You aren't building the next Google…

You're copying a model that works + tweaking it.

(it does depend on what type of SaaS you build)

The 5 need-to-know (and profitable) types of SaaS you can build in under a month

No, seriously.

Thread:
There are many kinds of SaaS BUT

5 of them you absolutely need to know.

These models are need-to-know if you want to build a SaaS(s) + sell for 6 to 7-figures.

Let's look at these 5 models + the pros & cons of each 👇
1. White Label

white label = product made by one company + sold by another

Pros:
- easy
- zero upfront cost

Cons:
- little control
- less profitable
- lower valuation

I don't recommend this model.

The real owner takes a fat chunk of your income + you sell for lower.

NoCode
Regular SaaS (99% of the time, this is cloud-based)

I'm going to break down the pros and cons of the first 4 models

Then address the biggest myths about regular SaaS
How did I get into SaaS?

I got a new job this year and my boss asked me to build him a new app.

I ran the numbers and came to the conclusion this company was basically paying me 50k to build a dashboard for my job.

If they're willing to pay me 50k to build this??

I figured...
