Educational platform
A service that connects teachers and students. For teachers, the service helps to create educational materials without a need to promote them and find the right audience, that relies on the platform.

For students, it helps to find educational materials, aggregates the courses. Therefore I, as a student, don’t need to grab a math course from Harvard, a biology course from Coursera and so on. The service helps to build an education plan.

Why does it matter? Fundamentals are great to learn in school (mostly), but the further education in universities/colleges can be boring as there is a lot of non-practical, outdated information.
Such situation creates an opportunity for the best teachers to teach other people who really need and want to be educated.

​​Trend: Jade Roller
Jade rollers are a rapidly growing category in the beauty space.

What are they? Jade rollers are essentially rounded jade stones that you roll on your face. The selling point is that jade rollers can reduce puffiness. Especially around the eyes.

In fact, many “jade roller obsessives” state that these handheld devices have helped them find relief for a host of health problems, from rosacea to headaches.

Why the uptick in popularity? Unlike many of today’s beauty and skin care products, jade rollers are relatively affordable (they typically cost between $20-$30).

They also look interesting. Which helps them stand out on visual platforms, like YouTube, Pinterest and Instagram (the #jaderoller hashtag has 102,781 results in IG).

On creating a product or an appendage

If I'm going to start a SaaS business, what type of product should I make? Should it be an appendage or an independent product?

By appendage, I mean a product that is built on top of another product. For instance, a browser extension for Medium to enhance the reading experience, a tool to schedule Instagram posts, a tool to extend or enhance the Shopify experience.

By an independent product, I mean a product that is valuable by itself. Shopify, Instagram, Facebook, etc.

On the first hand, choosing a self-sustained product means you're not dependent on other APIs/services. You don't need to adjust the functionality/features to the new release. That is the opposite of appendages. The customers pay for a product because it has value without other services or additional hustles. Again, that is also the opposite of appendages.

It seems the right way to start a SaaS venture is to create a product, not to build something over something. Is it? What about the competition? Sure, we can build a great product. We miss the point that it's hard to market the product after release. It depends on a niche though. By choosing a small niche, we can be sure there are fewer competitors.

Building on top of another product gives us privilege. We know, there is a market for the product we build over. We know, there are problems with the product we can solve, that's why we decided to build our tool.

What way we should choose? Share in the comments or in the @startupdis
