By generating revenue from sales for SaaS Startups, Launch 1st confirms product-market fit in months.
“We initially launched our SaaS startup company several years ago, the old way. Once our first product was released, we were surprised that it was difficult to gain traction and generate much revenue for the first couple of years. After a lot of time, cost, and painful rework, we eventually started to grow sales. I’m glad we didn’t know upfront how long it would take us and how difficult it would be those first couple of years to begin cash flowing. We recently decided to create a new product. Rather than developing the application first as we did with our previous product, hoping customers would buy it, we instead applied the Launch 1st™ methodology and generated enough revenue in advance which completely funded the development for the new product. We now have over 20 contracts before even starting development, and we are able to develop the product that our clients actually want instead of hoping they would buy what we ‘believe’ they need. This is how I plan to launch all future products.
“Launch 1st™ is a methodical approach to making sure we bring the right product to market with paying customers. There is a lot more knowledge and preparation that is built into the Launch 1st™ method that a lot of developers and software companies should be doing. Launch 1st™ has the knowledge base and experience to launch SaaS Startups by doing the market and industry research first, then using that research to generate pre-launch revenue which is used to fund any project. It is a very smart way to build your company.”
Founder of Tekyz Inc.
Creator of Launch 1st™
Worked with software startups for over 30 years.
I realize now that I did many things right at my first software company, even though I didn’t know what those things were at the time. My early success gave me a false sense of confidence that I knew what I was doing. For the next 19 years, I worked with several dozen SaaS Startups. In late 2019, I had a sudden realization of what the successful companies had in common and what was missing from the unsuccessful companies.
