💰 What SaaS products is your company paying for?

Bruno Lemos @brunolemos

Please comment below the ones you remember! The least known or the less satisfied you are with it the better.

Why? If companies are paying for something, there's a problem worth solving right there. And if your team is not much satisfied with the solution, there's room for us indie hackers to build something better 🚀

      Any plan on what do with Webfaction? Sounds like GoDaddy is shutting it down. I’m currently looking at alternatives.

        Yes, GoDaddy is shutting down Webfaction completely :(

        Planning to move to DigitalOcean or Amazon AWS

    Hi Bruno,

    I am part of AeroLeads and we have been using woodpecker for cold outreach.

    It's a great tool with an option to add other SMTP servers (which give good open rate) and pricing of the tool starts at $40.

    There was a side project created especially for this - if you will search, you might find it on IH. It was showing what services startups are subscribed to and how much they are paying. I can't find it though.

      Interesting, do you remember anything about the name or description so we can find it?
