I’m building a SaaS product in public
My name is Adam, I’m a Software Engineer and I’m building a SaaS product in public. It’s called “nyze”, but this is only a working title so far. I will be changing it along the way.
The SaaS I am building is for traders that are on the edge to make their next step to become profitable.
I’m a software engineer with more than 20 years of experience in developing web applications and online marketing, creating and optimising landing pages and generating leads and sales.
I would describe myself as a generalist with advanced knowledge in many fields, rather than being an expert in one or the other.
Besides developing and online marketing, I’m a part-time forex and futures trader with more than 10 years of experience.
I learned the hard way that trading requires more than just knowledge about markets and strategies and that even experience alone is not key to success.
The SaaS product
The product or service I am building is something that I was missing when I started out with trading years ago.
If you want to become a successful l trader, you have to treat trading like a business. It’s not a get rich quick scheme, even though the monetary aspect is probably the most often mentioned reason when asked, why people started trading in the first place.
In order to become a consistently profitable trader (CPT), you need to track your trades, make meaningful notes and make reviews on a daily basis.
When you’re a day trader and making tens of trades per day, this can become quite a time consuming task. For part-time traders, like myself, this is often the reason why we skip this crucial task and which leads to poor trading results long term.
That is the reason why I chose to build a solution that makes trade journaling as easy as possible and reviewing a breeze.
Documentation of my journey
I am going to use my publications here on Medium to document my journey of building and promoting my SaaS.
I will talk about every major decision I make. About all the services I am using to hire external developers, marketers, illustrators and copy writers. And also about the costs and everything else, that is important.
I’d be glad, if my notes will be useful for some of you who are thinking about building an online service, too.
