I very much want you to succeed in your SaaS ventures
So I hope you never end up saying any of these.
I shoulda validated there was a market.
I shoulda walked away and accepted my early costs.
I shoulda focussed on a tighter niche.
I shoulda been clearer about my prospects’ needs.
I shoulda written a more detailed spec.
I shoulda invested in experienced developers.
I shoulda learned more about the costs of building commercial software.
I shoulda been more engaged in the development process.
I shoulda completed the browser version before building two different mobile apps as well.
I shoulda generated some interest well before going to market.
I shoulda worked out a more detailed revenue model.
I shoulda thought about referral strategies.
I shoulda written some proper documentation.
I shoulda embedded contextual help.
I shoulda developed some tutorials and training courses.
I shoulda encouraged community engagement.
I shoulda built a partner network.
I shoulda worried more about delivering value and less about the technology.
I shoulda tried to be better rather than different.
And I REALLY don’t want you to look back ruefully and say, I shoulda engaged the services of a specialist #SaaS adviser.
So please, DON’T BE A SHOULDA.
