First 5 Customers For SaaS Product


I know for most of you, it is quite normal and something okay, and even for me as well, I have a bigger goal with this SaaS product as well.

I have been building SubtitleO since June, and it took a very long time for me because of some initial issues with the developers, new things in the market, etc. But I sorted that out by building a very strong team with people I can trust and who can go a long way with me.

Getting the first 5 customers is a really great validation that tells me that I am on the right track with this project.

I was nervous because we started getting 1000+ free users signed up to our platform but the conversion rate was low.

The reason that I have found is:

  • not having a clear idea of what they are getting in the paid plan
  • not having added bonuses of features in the pro plan

And we are working on it with a super keen interest now. Hopefully, we are going to see a good amount of conversion rate because all the feedback that we have got till now is not just good, but it is GREAT!

The things that we have done till now with SubtitleO for marketing:

  • SEO blogs
  • Email marketing to the free users
  • Listings on AI websites
  • Creating shorts for social media
  • Linkedin outreach
  • Google Ads
  • Facebook Ads (turned off because of super high CPC)

We will need to focus more on content marketing and social media content as our target audience is waiting for us there.
