Are SaaS companies becoming media businesses?

In today's crowded landscape, where it's harder to stand out and easier to be forgotten, SaaS companies are embedding a media business inside them.

HubSpot acquired The Hustle, Pendo acquired Mind the Product, and Salesforce launched Salesforce+. Here's why.

👉 Treating content as a core product. When SaaS companies focus on content that serves the reader (not to service the funnel), they build trust with an audience and a community around their brand.

👉 Owning your distribution. Like traditional media, SaaS companies opt to 'own' the relationship with their audience – instead of relying on third-party players for distribution.

👉 Host community events. Organize meetups, webinars, and workshops to build trust and gather feedback.

👉 Create a data feedback loop. Track subscriptions and measure interactions to gather first-party data, helping to inform the customer journey.

Once you’ve ironed out the prep work, there are several ways to roll out a launch. Here's one strategy to try.

For product leaders looking to add new features, here’s a targeted approach to avoid relying just on intuition.

👉 Beta Testing – Introduce new features in a controlled beta environment. Gather detailed feedback from a select group of users before a full rollout.

👉 Data-Driven Decisions – Use engagement metrics from existing features to identify what users need next. Prioritize developments that address these needs.

👉 Customer Interviews – Regularly schedule calls with both high-engagement users and those who churn. Pinpoint features that can drive retention and attract new users.

How Potion gained 100 paying customers before launching a product

You can launch a product when it's ready or you can launch it while in beta. But if you're really bold, you can 'launch it' before it's even built. Here's one way to get your first 100-paying customers within a month (befre a line of code is written).

👉 Tweet about your startup's journey before the product is released. Start by sharing ideas, decisions, and setbacks as a way to build an engaged community.

👉 Use your audience on one platform to build engagement on others. Before posting on ProductHunt, share that you are doing an upcoming launch. And once you're live, share the post so others can engage with it.
