How to find affordable designers and developers
Preparation is your greatest leverage in lowering cost. I provide a full breakdown (using ChatGPT and my experience) of exactly what I want the designer to do, down to the order of the sections and the copy within it. That is less work and headache for the designer, and so you can negotiate lower prices. With that visual design, you give the full layout to the developer, which answers a ton of questions and makes it a more desirable project to work on, which again allows you to negotiate lower prices. I do this everytime I outsource work. By doing things in this way, the people you are hiring enjoy working with you because you are very clear and give them everything they need upfront, so it is less headache for them, and that is leverage in negotiations for you.

    @Uday Tank Let me know how your progress goes!

    @Uday Tank First off, you need to test variations and gather some data to know what truly works best. Second, this is just what works for me, but I like to keep my emails shorter when doing cold outbound. For example: ------- Hi {name}; I see you are the owner of {Company Name}, a {description of what they do}. I came across your business while doing some research on organizations that {description of what they do}, and I was impressed by your dedication to {who they serve.} I'm in the process of discovering the real needs and pains of business owners like yourself. Feel free to say no...but would you mind sharing with me the top 5 problems you face in your business? -- Robert {Your Business Name} www.yourwebsite.com ------- That is just a rough draft of what I would try sending and see what happens. The more personalization you put into it, the more likely you are going to get a response. You can also use AI to automate the personalization process.
Hello I am Rene from Mexico, SaaS Founder of MatchKraft
Hi Everyone, I'm Rene Tatua, the founder of Matchkraft, a SaaS platform. Over the past 3 years, I've dedicated myself to developing this SaaS, despite my initial lack of knowledge in the industry. My determination has driven me forward, and I've expanded the platform over time. Although I initially began with an idea that addressed a necessary gap, I soon realized that the market demand was limited. To increase the likelihood of success, I diversified the offerings within my SaaS. Every month, I'm seeing positive progress. Financially, I'm currently covering only server costs and some beer money. I want to get better at what I do and offer more services that fit with my SaaS. I like taking the lead in sharing what I know with others in the SaaS community. If you've got any questions, feel free to ask me anything. Speaking of which, I'm actively seeking input on my pricing strategy. The current model involves a one-time fee rather than a recurring monthly charge. Gathering feedback is paramount, and I'm particularly interested in refining this aspect. You can find the current pricing details for my SaaS here: Matchkraft Pricing. Running a SaaS has proven challenging, yet I'm resolute in my dedication to continue this journey and adapt as needed. Thanks everyone. I am here to contribute!! So, in the future I will publish some tips and tricks that I had learned hehe.

    Welcome @Rene Tatua! I'm going to take a look through your website and let you know what I think. It's great to meet someone like you who takes action, I'm sure I'll have questions for you as well.

    @Rene Tatua Hey, I'm going through your app and I'd be interested to hear more about your experience so far in this journey. What are your users saying about your app? How are they actually using it? In terms of pricing, I think the pricing could be simplified. Maybe you could even charge more, because things that are less expensive sometimes give off the perception of being less 'quality'. Also, your pricing looks to be a subscription model, not a one-time fee. A one-time fee would presumably be something you pay one time, for life-time access. In your app, you have options to pay weekly, monthly, or yearly. There is nothing wrong with that, but it reads to me as a recurring subscription. Would be interested in hearing more - I think the action you have taken is great and if you make the right evolutions you will have it 'click'.

    What I am working on right now is a 'Buyer Enablement' software, in collaboration with @Danny Mallinder who has extensive experience with tools in that category. I am building a prototype as quick as I can, and documenting the process through video updates in this group! What are you working on at the moment? Would be interesting to learn more about your background.
πŸš€ Watch me build a SaaS App πŸš€
I'm excited to share a special video with you all. It's a behind-the-scenes look at an app I'm developing with Danny Mallinder. These videos are going to be a progress update, and also a roadmap for anyone embarking on their own app development journey. We are starting from zero here and need to move quick. Dive in to discover my strategies, insights, and the steps we're taking to turn this vision into reality!

    @Jefferson Tavo I'm using Figma to completely finalize the design before coding anything, in order to minimize on changes during development. This is how I've done it in the past and it's brought the best results.

    @Jefferson Tavo Drop by the weekly Friday meeting if you want to share your ideas and ask questions.
Speed vs Quality
Before you ship something, everyone talks about how long it is taking. After you ship, no one will remember how long it took - all that will matter is how good it is. There is always tension between speed and quality - but ultimately, you need to care about how good the product you are building is.

    @James Foster Interesting point - I'd say this varies depending on the scale and nature of the business. For larger businesses, the focus often leans towards perfecting the product before launch. These companies usually have more resources and can afford longer development times to ensure quality. The reputation and expectations surrounding their products are high, so releasing something subpar can have significant negative consequences. Small businesses and startups usually lack the resources of larger companies and face greater urgency to establish themselves in the market. For them, launching a MVP and iterating based on feedback is a more viable strategy. So within the context of this community, I would say doing an MVP and evolving based on user feedback is the way to go.

    @Rene Tatua is one of those rare people who does what he says he is going to do. He built his SaaS, launched it, and evolved it based on real user feedback. He's also accomplished one of the hardest things to do with a SaaS Product, which is to have people open their wallets and pay for it. That's the true acid test of whether or not people want what you built. It's not easy to code, market, talk to users, and basically do everything on your own, but that's what Rene is doing. He's willing to get his hands dirty, because that is what it takes to succeed in this game. Today it's beer money, but with grit and determination, he will turn it into big money.

The Cult of Done Manifesto
How To Get Started: The Cult of Done Manifesto 1. There are three states of being. Not knowing, action and completion. 2. Accept that everything is a draft. It helps to get it done. 3. There is no editing stage. 4. Pretending you know what you’re doing is almost the same as knowing what you are doing, so just accept that you know what you’re doing even if you don’t and do it. 5. Banish procrastination. If you wait more than a week to get an idea done, abandon it. 6. The point of being done is not to finish but to get other things done. 7. Once you’re done you can throw it away. 8. Laugh at perfection. It’s boring and keeps you from being done. 9. People without dirty hands are wrong. Doing something makes you right. 10. Failure counts as done. So do mistakes. 11. Destruction is a variant of done. 12. If you have an idea and publish it on the internet, that counts as a ghost of done. 13. Done is the engine of more.

How to Build Products Users Love (Y Combinator)
Hey community, I recently came across this insightful talk by Kevin Hale, a partner at Y Combinator. He shared some valuable lessons on product development, user feedback, team management, and more. I've summarized the key takeaways below, and I believe they're highly relevant for us as SaaS founders. Let's discuss! Summary: Kevin Hale's Insights for Building Loved Products: 1. User Love & Growth: Kevin emphasizes the importance of building products that users genuinely love. Growth is a balance between conversion rate and churn, with the gap indicating the growth rate. The key is to acquire passionate first users; the rest will follow. 2. Kevin's Journey: He co-founded Wufoo, an online form builder, in 2006. Despite its simplicity, it attracted diverse users, including Fortune 500 companies. Run remotely from Florida with no office, Wufoo was acquired by SurveyMonkey in 2013 after raising only $118,000 and delivering a 29,000% return to investors. 3. Building Relationships with Users: Kevin draws parallels between user relationships and real-life relationships: - First Impressions: Users remember their initial interactions with a product, much like first dates. - Quality of Interaction: Products should not only function well but also enchant users. - Emotion in Interaction: Small details, like playful tooltips, can enhance user experience. 4. Creating Memorable First Impressions: Kevin shares examples of companies like Vimeo, Cork, and Stripe that offer unique user experiences, emphasizing the importance of understanding the target audience. 5. Long-Term Relationships & Support: Kevin compares retaining users to maintaining a successful marriage. He introduces "Support Driven Development," where everyone, including developers, is involved in customer support, ensuring a direct feedback loop. 6. Passion in Relationships: Just as relationships require continuous effort, products need ongoing refinement. Wufoo's "Alert System" informed users of new features, and their handwritten thank-you cards fostered a deep connection with users.

Wized is no longer 'invitation only'!
Wized is a 'low-code' tool that let's you turn Webflow websites into fully functional web apps with a backend. It is great for developing your MVP, or even a long-term solution for your business, with minimal code. You could technically build 'Skool' using Webflow, Wized, and Xano - the possibilities are endless. Up until now, Wized was only available by invitation only. Now, anyone can use it, and I recommend giving it a try. Here is the link: https://www.wized.com/ If you need help getting started out, or have questions about it, just send me a DM or post it in the group. Always happy to help you get unstuck!
