Build Your SaaS

Justin shares a phone call he had with Nathan, the founder of ConvertKit.

Show Notes

Today's show is not a full episode!

Jon and I have been busy with our day jobs, plus Memorial Day, and didn't have time to record a show.

But, to be honest, this pricing discussion isn't something we can solve in a 30-minute conversation. We've realized it's going to require more research. We need to talk to folks who know more than us.

So that's what we've been doing. This week, I have a call booked with Patrick from Price intelligently, as well as Rob Walling (who just his company Drip).

I'm hoping to get some useful insights on pricing from these folks. Mostly so we don't make the same mistakes that other SaaS companies have made. These chats will also benefit you, the listener, because we'll be sharing as much as we can in future episodes.

As a teaser, I'm going to share a phone call I had with Nathan Barry.  He has one of the fastest growing SaaS products in existence right now: ConvertKit.

They just crossed 1 million dollars in MRR. That's an Annual Run Rate of $12.8 million! They've grown fast, and Nathan's had to learn fast. 

So here are some of his thoughts on the pricing of podcast hosting.
