WA Lead Me To Creating A Micro-SaaS That Now Makes Me $2320 A Month

Last Update: October 19, 2018

So a few years a go I started out at WA with affiliate marketing and as you know one thing leads to another. I still do affiliate marketing and recommend Wealthy Affiliate to everyone I know who's looking to get started with building their own online business.

But through the process it got me thinking how can I build something like WA where I could get people to join and pay me a monthly recurring payment. Since I own a cell phone repair store and I knew a lot of people in the community I decided to build a saas (software as a service) for the cell phone repair industry.

I ended up making a program that allowed cell phone repair shops to have their customers sign a repair authorization form that allowed each shop to perform a pre and post check of multiple functions of each device. You can check out the software at www.repairforms.io if you are curious as to what I made.

The funny thing is it took me almost 2 and 1/2 years to get up to $3000 a month with affiliate marketing but with my saas I was able to go from zero to $2320 a month as of this writing in just under 4 months and I am still getting new sign ups each week.

So if you can think of a way to turn something into a saas, I highly recommend it. Think about task at your job that you hate doing that you could turn it into a software because chances are if you are having that issue so are other companies and they will pay you for a fix.

I am currently working on my second saas where cell phone repair stores can provide quotes and do a 30+ point inspection on all cell phones that they buy, sell, or trade. I plan to market this software to the same people I did my first software and chances are a lot of those people will get a subscription to this software as well because there is a need for it but no solution on the market right now. I plan on launching it in a few weeks for the same price I do my repairforms.io which is $29 per month and repairforms.io currently has 80 subscribers.

So it doesn't take a lot of subscribers to get your monthly revenue up. Just like if you are an affiliate for Wealthy Affiliate they give you $23.50 a month for each member you sign up. Just get 100 sign ups and you could probably quit you job and starting working on your online business full time.

So my advice is to just go through the training on WA and start thinking about how to solve businesses issues online and provide a service to that business and the sky is the limit.

Now get out there and make that money.

Great post. I am getting so much out of WA and I think the stuff I am learning has really inspired me to get creative and think outside the box. I have had a couple of business ideas that I have run through some friends that look really promising. I don't think I would have the foresight to progress if it were not for the foundation that I am getting on this platform. What you learn in Affiliate Marketing can be transferred across to so many other markets. Your post just reminds me how important it is to get creative and explore other possible avenues of making money.

Awesome post! Very happy to hear you are doing so well with your Saas app! Well done! - Wondering if you might be able to share some detail on what you used to build your Saas App? Would be very interested to discuss the programming language, database etc with you. Thanks Dan

Sure used a website called www.bubble.is there is a small learning curve to it but if you need help just message me.

Hi again Ralph, Hope you are well. Thanks very much for passing on the info about bubble.is - I have spent some time using it over the last couple of weeks. Looks good! Mind if I ask a couple of questions though?
- Do you use the "personal" plan on bubble? or are you using one of the "Business" prices?
- Also, are you using the skills you learnt here on WA to push people (potential subscribers) to your Sass App. eg , do you have a niche site / blog where you have posts that recommend your sass product? or something similar.

Happy to send you a private message if you would like me to elaborate or discuss more.

Thanks in advance for any feedback and well done again!

Sorry for the late reply. I am on the $16 month plan not sure which one that was off the top of my head, I believe it is the personal plan. To get people to sign up I use a facebook bot that sends private messages to everyone in a particular Facebook group. So I go find a group related to my niches which is cell phone repair shop talk. I then use the software to get everyone in that group's personal link then I send them a friend request with a message saying hi come try out my software. I also post videos on youtube on how to use it with keywords in the title and body of the video. Yes please do send me a private message and I'll share my contact info with you.

That's why it was so easy to build the software and get subscribers in under 4 months. I think if I would have paid someone overseas to build it would have taken them at least that long just to make it with traditional coding.

Thanks, Jacqueline and what's cool is I actually build the entire software with no coding.
