As you’ve likely noticed, the past weeks, I’ve written a lot about a question I get a lot:: ‘How do I rapidly scale my SaaS business?’
I started by zooming out to the bigger question: Why is creating scale critical in the first place?
The short answer:
- It’s about your growth opportunity,
- It’s underpinning predictable traction,
- It’s about optimizing margins,
- It’s about customer value creation and customer retention,
- It’s about the viability of the business,
- And ultimately, company valuation.
Scale is all-encompassing. Therefore I’ve aimed to provide a 360 perspective on the topic – simply because it can’t be isolated.
Finding the ultimate scale opportunity is about finding a balance between the technology side, the business side, and the people side in your company..
But it’s more than that. Embracing scaling in our SaaS business is a mindset. Those that succeed live it – every day, in everything they do.
And since it’s a mindset, I provided seven steps to build that mindset – and the habits or accelerate your scale journey:
- It all starts with alignment
- Weed the desire to grow at all cost
- Eliminate the trickle-down effect
- Cherish Repeatability
- Accelerate the process toward repeatability
- Fuel the flywheel
- Promote autonomy
Every day we have the opportunity to tune how we can scale our SaaS business. Take that opportunity. Imagine where you can be in 6 months’ time.
Question for you to reflect upon:
Right now, where’s the biggest opportunity to optimize scale in your SaaS business? What can you do today to move the needle?
