The basic idea behind "Learn SaaS" is to bring some of the best conference notes relevant to SaaS under a single place. We will publish the notes we have personally taken in person or also go through some of the videos and summarize it nicely.
The problem we have noticed is, out of the 20-40 minutes content from the speaker there will only be a handful of useful messages (probably 3-4 key points), other than that a lot of time is spent on not so relevant things like background, speaker info, generic fillers, etc.
As SaaS Founders and CEO's we are interested in the content and the key messages, but we cannot spend the whole 20-40 minutes of our time watching the video. However, it's easy to glance through the content in 2 - 3 minutes. It's all about time and speed!
Some conference vendors transcribe the article into text but in our opinion, they are only useful for the search engines and not for human beings.
We have put a lot of hard work behind the scene to create human-readable content. We have spent hours either in person attending the conferences ourselves or going through the video content and make some notes, highlight important points and slides and consolidated it nicely here.
So far we have invested about 3 months of our time to get the initial base version with around 50 articles. We are planning to keep adding content at least 2-3 articles per week. Over time we hope to have the best content for SaaS learning in a single place.
We structured the content into 3 main categories (Traction, Growth, and Scale - inspired by SaaStock agenda). If you are a SaaS company, you must fall under one of these stages. We will place the content in relevant categories.
