In this episode of The Creative Business Podcast, we talk about what it means to build and run a successful SaaS. The ups and downs, the good and the bad. We tell all. 

Have you ever dreamed of building and running your own SaaS? For some, the promise of recurring revenue is just too much to bear. They throw their heart, soul and not to mention their savings into building a product that could well fail within months… Today we talk about what it means to run a SaaS. The ups and downs, the good and the bad. Our own SaaS, Nusii has been helping creative business owners write and manage their client proposals since 2014.

  • Why this idea? How do you know it will work?
  • I'm not technical, how can I build a SaaS?
  • Define what success looks like before you begin
  • I'll never be the success that (…insert company here) is!

  • What was easier than we expected?
  • What was harder than we expected?
