SaaS blogs have made a big comeback. In 2019, nearly every SaaS company has a blog. With so many great SaaS writers spread across a seemingly endless sea of blogs, sometimes it can be hard to find the type of content you’re looking for.
With this in mind, we thought we’d put together a list of our 10 favorite SaaS blogs, covering a wide-variety of SaaS-related topics. It’s important to note that this is not intended as a “top 10” list, as things like this are very subjective. There are so many great blogs out there, and we find more every day! But for now, here are 10 of our favorites with a little info on the great people behind each of these companies. Enjoy!
Covering a wide variety of business topics within the SaaS umbrella and beyond, the Openview blog has been praised for its rock-solid
We have a stake in the ground for why we are doing everything that we are doing. There is an old adage that “if you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.” By extension, if you do know where you are going, you can pick the best roads to get you there. That’s OpenView.– Scott Maxwell, Founder.
Calling their blog “Your Guide to Managing the Customer Journey”, Customer Success giants Totango own one of the most active SaaS blogs on the internet. Passionate customer success expert and top contributor Mia Jacobs
The only way to ensure your customers have the best experience in all aspects of their customer journey is to empower employees across your organization with access to customer data. However, it does not stop at just providing access to customer data — teams across your organization must be able to operationalize this data and quickly iterate on new information.– Guy Nirpaz, CEO.
Redpoint managing director, author and active blogger Tomasz Tunguz
We’re in an era that has the cash, the willingness and the protocols to finance fundamental and massive change in a way that we haven’t seen in a generation.– Tomasz Tunguz, Venture Capitalist & Author.
The folks behind all-in-one SaaS commerce platform Paddle want to be the platform that all software companies use to run and grow their business, and they’re getting closer every day! While not the most active blog we’ve seen, the company often publishes articles and guides discussing the ins and outs of running and growing a software company. Made unique by recurring contributors Catherine Pearson, Ed Fry, Mike Wakeling and more, the Paddle blog truly never disappoints.
Focus on building something good, and solving a real problem.– Christian Owens, CEO.
Toting the Twitter handle YourFaveVC, Blossom Street Ventures is quickly becoming one of ours! Though Co-Founder Sammy Abdullah is the blog’s sole contributor, he proves himself extremely capable of handling the role alone. Offering fantastic analyses, musings and observations, the data presented on the Blossom Street blog every week is not something you want to miss!
You probably won’t be a success from day 1. You’re going to struggle and may even come close to failure (more than once). The good news: there are plenty of examples of companies that had setbacks and bumps along the way, but were still a great success.– Sammy Abdullah, Co-Founder.
Confidential benchmarking platform OPEXEngine is the brainchild of Founder and CEO Lauren Kelley, and is operated by one of the best teams in SaaS! As big fans of the company and the people involved, we’re naturally big supporters of their fantastic blog as well. Discussing the finer details of SaaS metrics and reporting, the OPEXEngine blog fills a void in the SaaS metrics discussion, spotlighting the subtleties and addressing the elephants in the proverbial room as well. We highly recommend checking it out!
No one knows if the cost of capital will go up or how the stock market will perform — companies can’t control that, but they can influence their own productivity.– Lauren Kelley, Founder & CEO.
SaaS Billing and Revenue Management platform Chargify has built one of the most visually-pleasing websites we’ve seen in a while. Colorful, easy to use and jam-packed with fantastic content. The Chargify blog is one of our favorite places to go for any and all SaaS billing, revenue and metrics questions. And we’re not the only ones! The articles published on the company’s blog receive consistent praise and social media circulation.
Simply put, managing revenue and billing has become a SaaS business blocker. As a company that has been committed to SaaS for more than 10 years, we have identified this need and have evolved our platform to solve– Paul Lynch, CEO.
Calling themselves “your SaaS growth partner”, CoBloom is all that and more. Updated many times a week, the CoBloom blog features hundreds of articles focusing on the latest strategy, tips and advice from inside the trenches of a SaaS company. Primary contributors Ryan Law and Emily Smith discuss a seemingly endless variety of SaaS topics, offering insight and actionable advice for each. While still considered an up-and-comer, the CoBloom blog is the real deal.
Sell a service. Identify something you’re good at, and then find people that want to buy it.– Will Steward, Co-Founder & CEO.
We’ve talked a lot about ProfitWell and Patrick Campbell before. If you work in SaaS, you’re probably familiar with his work, ProfitWell’s products, and the ProfitWell Report with Neel Desai. But for those who may be unfamiliar, ProfitWell is a company dedicated to solving the hardest parts of subscription growth, and their dedication is evident in everything they do. Not the least of which is their fantastic blog which features articles, podcasts, videos and more all discussing, researching and demystifying the most important issues in SaaS and software in general. Definitely a blog worth checking out!
The only way to get alignment is by telling the same story in different ways.– Patrick Campbell, Co-Founder & CEO.
If you’re looking for a one-stop-shop for inbound marketing info, Incredo‘s blog is it! Though the blog’s writers remain anonymous, that doesn’t detract from the information included one bit! We’ve used this blog as a resource for our inbound-marketing questions and research for quite some time, and have included their work in our roundups in the past. Keep up the great work, Incredo!
With an informed sales team, one which knows exactly what pain points are relevant to customers at a given moment in time and how preferences have shifted from one month to the next, well, think of the possibilities.– Artash Arakelyan, Founder & CEO.
