Hey IH fam!
Do you know who is building the most exciting micro SaaS?
I am writing a short article about the story behind micro SaaS, best if it's created by the IH community.
Show us your product or tag your friends below.
I hate the term "micro saas". Seems like a new trendy thing to say.
Surely a SaaS is a SaaS, no?
Just another fancy word for makers building useless stuff.

Oh wait, it's another Airtable.
Park.io guy makes 1 million a year from his micro Saas.
What makes Park.io a micro saas? Not being funny..just curious
Micro Saas is narrow focus, no outside funding, small team, can be 1 person.
Park.io is run by 1 guy. They only do domain name grabs.
You linked to the SaaS Club podcast, to an episode called "The One Person, Million Dollar SaaS Business"...
To somehow prove a point?
No time to argue about definitions. Too busy building. Cheers! ✌🏼
LOL - Too true
I prefer "Emerging SaaS". Something that starts small and have the potential to become big in the future.
Thank you so much for your support @danial , @MarlonMaquera - maybe we should celebrate this together?
Hey my friend @Primer 👋🏻
I’m not a big fan of the term too...
I understand there’s a struggle to distinguish size / stage of a company. Do I still call Slack, Twilio, SendGrid a SaaS company. Yes of course.
But if we want to be more inclusive to those emerging and humble SaaS product, it’s much easier to add a slang before and after.
I like humble SaaS better 😜
All Micro-SaaS are SaaS, but not all SaaS are a Micro-Saas. I think a great example of a Micro-Saas is this product someone posted here a while back: DocTemple. It's a very useful product but it's small, does only one thing, built likely by one person, not a ton of room to scale, just effectively solves on problem.
I think it's just as useful to distinguish a Micro-SaaS from a SaaS as it is to distinguish an "indie hacker" from bigger, funded, startups, and here we are in a whole community built for that.
Building a better way for designers / front-end devs to collect feedback on their live websites and static designs from clients and team members. https://usebolt.io - I think this is only exciting (and the same for any SaaS?) if you are in my target market. Saving time + energy is great!
Hey @pips definitely a great product! Will include you indeed. And thanks for giving my virtual conference a big offer :)
I'm building a SaaS that helps people build their SaaS → divjoy.com
Dude! This is awesome.
I wish I knew about this.
Is there a lot of documentation or video tutorials included?
Thinking of adding support for Nuxt and Firebase hosting?
How did you get the CTO of Stripe to give you a testimonial? Great social proof.
Thanks! In terms of docs, the exported codebases includes a readme that walks through the basics, such as running locally, auth, queries, deployment, etc, but I'm working on a public faceing docs section so you can see those details before buying. Any major questions in particular?
Firebase Hosting is coming early 2021. I'd love to support Vue/Nuxt. Scaling across all the React frameworks + adding Vue support might be a bit too much, but I could see eventually settling on just one React framework (probably Next.js) and then also adding Nuxt.
It was actually a total surprise to find out the CTO of Stripe was a Divjoy customer and he had written a blog post with that quote in it. So that testimonial is about as legit as they get. I think he's on his 3rd project with Divjoy right now.. validating to say the least!
Are you planning on adding Material UI?
Yes! Material UI integration should be live around mid-January. Feel free to select in under the "UI kit" dropdown on the homepage and enter your email if you'd like to be notified when it's ready.
Wonderful. Just purchased :)
Thanks for buying! Reach out anytime if I can help with anything.
I'm building a way to generate a personalized podcast feed of articles you'd like to read later, at ListenLater.fm
Are you open in teaming up with someone (pretty universal, technical, but not only) or do you want to be solo?
Ive been working with RoR for 8 years as FED, so the stack is well known for me :)
I wont hide, that you are doing the exact project i had in my mind for some time.
Very interesting product. How's your progress so far?
It’s going well. I use it every day, and we’ve got a good group of active users. It’s still early days, but I’m enjoying talking to users and improving the experience for them.
I just announced this project yesterday: https://inter.so so me :)
OH WOAH! You should get more spotlight from the #nocode community - it's a great concept!
I'm a one person team building a website builder for single page apps.
Analytics Tally allow you to build public dashboard for google analytics
Interesting. What’s the biggest differentiator than Google Data Studio and the built in Custom Dashboard of GA?
Personally I haven't used Google Data Studio but heard from some people that it was a bit complicated to create dashboard on Data Studio.
I don't know if Analytics Tally is different or same as compared to what Data Studio can do, all it does is authenticate your google account, lets you choose website and generate a dashboard from the data collected. You don't have to do anything except that.
In the future, I am hoping to add reporting feature.
is dashboards built on google analytics still a thing? like do people make use of these?
May be, may be not let's see how it goes
I have built a SaaS called awsom.me that allows influencers to create treats for their fans. I am very excited about it.
I am building a micro saas of creating a text based logo without wasting huge time for indie makers, entrepreneurs. The idea is text based logo doesn't need much time to create and the text itself will be a brand later like Sony, Google, Stripe, Indie Hackers and so on!

Hey Felix I am building this invoicing tool for customers who have been left in the lurch by wave. Tuaneka.com what do you guys think?
If you divide a macro Saas in two do you get two micro Saases? 🤓
@felix12777 I'm not sure if I fit your definition of Micro Saas—I think so?—I'm building Intro CRM!
It does! Very cute website too ;)
Thanks, @felix12777! Glad you like it :)
I'm building Howitzer - a marketing tool for Reddit, made for Entrepreneurs and Indie Hackers.
Would be glad if you check it out! :)
Interesting @nklvlk - how does the product look like?
We still haven't shared any images of the product (as the front-end details are done last), but it's a classic material web app :)
Helping people get abs.
I'm building a project management platform for video production teams. Think Asana but specifically for video producers - does that count? :)
I have just convert a way of a marketer friend for collect emails to a saas in two days 🙂
This is very interesting. Lean and clean!
I am building Wappraiser (https://www.wappraiser.com/) a tool that provides the most valuable web metrics of a site in a single report.
I'm building Hashtag Slayer (with my wife, @danicapierce). It's an Instagram marketing tool for hashtag strategy and optimization.
I'd have to say getlasso.co - the all-in-one plugin for affiliate marketers. We're doing just about everything different from a typical WP plugin. Free trial? Pay monthly instead of yearly? Team has three comma income expertise in the space? Whaaaa?
I’m building release note delivery app (complies them right from project managemt tool that you use) - Releasert
High converting email banners for startups & blogs. https://readercatch.com
I'm building a productivity platform for content teams: https://postpace.com :D
Building out a way for people to find email addresses from a domain name - https://lionleads.app
Cool stuff. How’s your pricing model look like? I usually use Hunter, Rocketreach. How would you differentiate with them?
Right now I have a limited amount of the data (50 emails from any domain) all for free. I am trying to measure if people find this useful, so I look for how many people click the upgrade button.
It is similar to Hunter, but the emails I am giving are from a different source and I even have LinkedIn profiles. Also I am working on a way for the tool to give you a list of similar companies to the one you are looking at - this should provide a large differentiation.
Just curious, would you use this over Hunter since I don’t have limits like hunter?
