Hi! I'm Omer Khan, the founder of SaaS Club and host of The SaaS Podcast.
Let me ask you something...
Why are some people able to create a successful SaaS business while other people fail time and time again or struggle to even get started?
Why are some people able to find and validate a SaaS business idea and get customers before they launch, while others end up building products that no one wants?
And why are some people able to get thousands of customers and build a multi-million dollar SaaS business, while others struggle to get their first 10 customers?
What do successful SaaS companies and founders do differently?
These are questions that I would often ask myself. I watched many SaaS founders seemingly do everything 'right'. For example, they'd follow the lean startup methodology, but their SaaS company would fail.
And yet other entrepreneurs would do many things 'wrong'. They never 'got out of the building'. They didn't do 'customer interviews'. And yet they succeeded and many even built multi-million dollar businesses.
Was it just luck for some and bad luck for others?
I had some big questions that I wanted to get answered:
- How do you find the right idea for your SaaS business?
- How do you turn an idea into a successful business?
- How do you profitably acquire new customers?
- How do you sell if you're just not a natural salesperson?
- What do successful SaaS founders do differently?
- What can we learn from both successful and failed companies?
And that's how SaaS Club was born.
Well actually, I just started with a podcast. I started interviewing founders of SaaS companies to learn as much as I could. I had no idea where that would lead. But I was curious and hungry to learn from as many people as possible.
I wasn't sure if anybody would even listen to the podcast.
But people did start listening. I started getting emails from email saying how much value they were getting from the podcast. And others told me how listening to the podcast made them feel like they weren't alone.
I couldn't see it back then, but we were starting to create a movement.
Today, I've interviewed hundreds of founders on The SaaS Podcast and we've grown SaaS Club into an amazing community.
There are thousands of aspiring SaaS founders out there -- probably like you. Most of them don't live in Silicon Valley. They don't have easy access to angel investors and VCs. Many of them don't even want to have investors.
Instead, most of those people want to build a SaaS product that they're proud of. They want to use their skills to solve a real-world problem. And they want to build a recurring revenue business that lets them live the life they want, on their terms.
And those are the people that SaaS Club is for. My mission is simple - help as many of those founders as possible to build, launch and grow successful SaaS businesses.
So if what I've just said resonates with you. If you feel that I'm describing you, then you've found the right place.
