$10k per month SaaS Membership Challenge

Time for a new challenge…

The goal is simple: $10k per month in NEW monthly recurring revenue via SaaS Membership sites in 6 months or less.

Why am I doing this: After 20 years of building online apps for others, it’s time I make a few of my own!

And you get a front row seat to every “Ah Yeah” and “WTF just happened?!?!” moment…

Interested?

Here’s how it’s going down…

1.) Revenue cannot be one time, it must be monthly recurring revenue from a new online service I create.

2.) I will post updates of my progress and what third party services/software I use, with follow ups, that way you know which to use and which to avoid!

3.) Bootstrappin it all the way homey! I will be doing all the code and design work. If I do hire someone to help, I will mention what they did and the cost.

4.) Comments for this challenge are in AMA (Ask Me Anything) style, so go ahead and ask me anything (challenge related of course)! The point of this challenge is to document my journey, AND also help out those who are stuck or building their SaaS / Membership sites too.

Here is a list of what I think I will be using…
(will update as it changes…)

Server / Code
PHP
CodeIgniter
MySQL
Amazon EC2
Gearman
Supervisor

Task Management
Trello (keeps me organized)

Email
