How to bootstrap your way to 22,000 users

In this episode the co-founders of Poptin, Gal and Tomer, stop by to tell us how they bootstrapped their Opt-in forms SaaS company to 22,000 users!
We’re talking about a company that didn’t raise any money - and on the first day of their beta launch already started making money. Before there was a pricing page!

Learn how an SEO agency spotted a better product opportunity, built a community around their product before even having a product, how they prioritize tasks to grow a SaaS business in a crowded market and what marketing channels actually work for them. They give us all the day to day details, the glory, the hard work and why it’s so important to give value first.

Also, they are the first guests to bring us Whiskey!

What you’ll learn:
- The difference between a competitor heavy market and a saturated market.
- When should you pivot from agency to product
- Why starting local is a great tip for a bootstrapped company
- What “value first” means in marketing, product and community
- How to find the first blog topics that’ll bring you relevant users fast
- Why branding can be important from day one
- How to plan your features when you have a small team
