After brainstorming ways to find a great market to build a SaaS website for, I needed to decide which method(s) to try.
So, I broke out my Decision Assistant program again.
Before entering in the options I was considering, I looked at the brainstorming session results. Some of the ideas were similar enough that they could be combined, some were on a slightly different tangent, and some just really didn’t appeal to me. In the end, I added 12 of the ideas as viable options.
I only had a few factors to consider, and I wasn’t really sure how they should be weighted. I took my best guess, and will see how that goes.
After making the weighted-pair comparisons, I ended up with these results.
Looking at the highest-ranked options, I’m going to try the first three and the fifth. I decided to add in the fifth option – search niche forums – since I can do it easily and quickly, at no cost other than my time. It may not produce a result as good as the fourth option could have, but it will be much easier to get a result. We’ll see how that turns out.
The next step is to develop plans for each of methods I’m going to try. I’ll discuss that in the next post.
Regarding the results I received, take them with a fair amount of skepticism. The weightings I applied to the factors were guesses. The choices I made in the comparisons were also guesses. If you want to use this method to build your own business, you certainly have different skills and resources than I do. So you are best off to come up with your own options, factors, weightings, and results.
