Fascinating story of how Reilly Chase built a SaaS to $10K a month without doing any customer validation. And he learnt to code on the fly.
A dose of determination and a bit of luck in this episode of The SaaS Podcast.
- Reilly’s MVP was a WordPress site with a bunch of plugins to connect it all together. Not knowing how to code shouldn’t be a barrier to getting something into the market. There are ways round it for your first versions, especially with the current no code movement. And if you can be super clear about you need, you hire freelancers without a big budget.
- Don’t try and launch too many products. Your time will split too thin to build any momentum. Focus on one thing at a time (something I need to learn 😄)
- Getting seed capital doesn’t need to be about the cash – although it acts as a safety net. Backing from Earnest Capital gave access to experienced mentors.
