Domain Magnate Update
We have a brand new episode of The Domain Magnate Show, with guest Chelsea Clark. A Content Monetization Strategist and website investor, with over 30 successful website flips, she founded blogsforsale.co and HerPaperRoute.com. Hear about her first flip, what she looks for in a content site, as well as how she helps creative business owners increase the value of their niche websites so they can sell them for a profit.
I recently spoke with Ryan Condie on the Let’s Buy a Business podcast about my experience building, promoting, monetizing websites, and successfully completing over 300 deals. As we explore specific deals, we discuss how I find off-market businesses to acquire and what red flags to look for.
SaaS Automation for Increased Profitability
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions are almost universally associated with automation. These solutions lessen users’ workload by decreasing otherwise onerous or time-consuming processes by providing flexible, efficient workflows. This begs the question: why don’t more SaaS companies fully automate their processes?
Any business model that uses automation adds value to the business and makes it easier to scale. Thus, if you want your SaaS business to be profitable, you must increase the efficiency of your internal marketing, sales and growth activities.
Nahla Davies looks at the value automation can bring to your SaaS business and what aspects of it you should contemplate automating in a recent article for Flippa.com.
