If you’ve been following the AI trends lately, you probably heard of ChatGPT by OpenAI. ChatGPT is a chatbot/dialog AI. The chatbot uses a large language model trained with reinforcement learning and is based on the GPT-3.5 architecture. ChatGPT was launched in November 2022 and has attracted attention for its detailed responses and historical knowledge, although its accuracy has been criticized.

Today I tried ChatGPT myself and asked the AI to write me a plan to build a SaaS business and “achieve 1 million dollars” within a year in revenue. This is what ChatGPT wrote me.

The response / ChatGPT’s plan

1.Identify a profitable niche within the SaaS market that has a large and growing customer base. This could involve researching trends and customer needs in the market, studying competitors and their offerings, and looking for gaps or areas where there is a lack of good solutions.

For example, you could focus on developing a cloud-based project management tool for small and medium-sized businesses. This type of product could help businesses to organize and manage their projects, teams, and resources more efficiently, and could appeal to a wide range of industries and customers.

2. Develop a unique and valuable SaaS product that addresses the needs of your target market. This could involve creating a minimum viable product (MVP) to test with potential customers, gathering feedback, and iterating on the design and features to improve the product.

For example, your project management tool could include features such as task tracking, project calendars, team collaboration, and resource management. You could also offer integration with other popular tools and platforms, such as email, CRM, and accounting software, to make it easy for customers to use and manage their projects.

3. Create a professional and user-friendly website to showcase and sell your SaaS product. This could involve choosing a website platform, such as WordPress or Shopify, designing a layout and navigation that is easy to use and looks good, and setting up payment and subscription options.
