Show Notes

Not gonna lie. I’ve thought about building a SaaS business (Software as a Service). I thought it would be so cool to have my own program or piece of software that can easily be redistributed to thousands of potential clients. There were only 2 problems:

  1. I don’t know how to code
  2. I don’t have the money to pay someone who does know how to code

After talking with Tim Branyan, today’s guest, I could not believe how little it actually costs to get your app or software developed. With invest only $10,000, Tim was able to get the MSP (Minimum Sellable Product) developed, and ultimately build and grow that into a multi-7-figures business.

Sure it’ll take some research and a little bit of hands-on vetting, but in this episode Tim is going to help get you moving in the right direction so you can get building your own SaaS business, and help the people it’s intended to help.


3 Main Takeaways from The Episode:

By the end of this episode, you should have learned:

  1. What is means to build a minimum viable product and what that looks like in the SaaS world.
  2. Better understanding of how to get your first feedback and possibly first customers for your SaaS business.
  3. How to expand your network and potential customers beyond your immediate circle.
