The platform combines email marketing, invoicing and billing, and digital delivery into one complete package to help to run an entire business. Simplero is a project Syndicode helped to develop, and today we’re happy to share the Spotify podcast with Calvin Correli, Simplero founder and CEO. Listen to him talking about The Power of Purpose in Building a SaaS Business.
Calvin Correli is the founder and CEO of Simplero, a SaaS platform for experts to deliver their information online.
This is the story of a freelance developer who always wanted to build a product business. He tried and failed several times. So he kept working as a freelancer. One day, a major client that generated the majority of his income told him that they’d decided to outsource the work he was doing to a company in India. He and his wife had just bought a new house and had their second child. To say that this was bad timing would be an understatement. He had a new sense of urgency to make money. But everything he did fell flat. Out of frustration, he sat down one night and did something that changed the course of his life. It sounds a bit dramatic, but it really was a pivotal moment for him. And that’s when things seemed to start going his way. He built a SaaS product for himself and as word spread, he started letting other people use his product for free. Eventually, he started charging for his product. He spent a lot of money on marketing, but nothing seemed to work. So he focused on building a great product and hoped that the marketing would work itself out through word of mouth. And that bet paid off.
Today Simplero generates over $2 million a year in recurring revenue. It’s a great story and there are a ton of useful lessons to learn.
Syndicode is proud to contribute to such a useful and great product as Simplero.
