The 10 Resources to Start in SaaS
So, first of all, where do you go when you want to start in SaaS?
Nowadays, there are tons of resources out there, such as podcasts, books, videos, and more.
But what resources can you check if you – hands-on – want to start in SaaS?
1. Intercom on Starting Up (Book)
Our founder Mike always says, “this is the holy bible for SaaS.”
The book covers everything: from starting to scaling your own SaaS product.
Especially the pricing chapter is one to look at, as pricing is really hard, but this book definitely is a great guide on that!
2. Zero to SaaS (course)
It’s the best SaaS course out there on how to start, build, and scale your SaaS.
The course covers everything, from coming up with an idea, finding the right audience, validating your idea by building an MVP, building a SaaS with No-Code, and outsourcing your code, to marketing and sales strategies to scale it to over $1,000,000.
PS: with this course, you’ll also get access tot the thriving Zero to SaaS Community.
3. Founder Mornings (Newsletter)
If you’re a so-called solopreneur (an entrepreneur building his own products), this newsletter is for you!
It’s a newsletter from Mike, and he’s sharing his learnings on building a solopreneur business (mainly building SaaS products) every Sunday.
The newsletters are packed with gems: new apps, frameworks, strategies, learnings, and more.
4. Follow Mike!
Speaking of Mike, he’s sharing all of his lessons across multiple social media accounts in different formats, such as text and video.

9. Paid Resources
While there is a lot of free content shared by successful SaaS entrepreneurs, often, the best value comes from paid resources.
Nothing’s free, and the knowledge a SaaS founder acquired has taken him or her years.
That’s why there are paid resources out there, well worth your money, like the Zero to SaaS course.
Go explore and find resources, and don’t be afraid to invest in acquiring the knowledge of others 🙂
10. Join Communities
Joining communities is actually one of the best ways to connect and learn from other SaaS founders, marketers, and more.
