Let’s begin our program:

1- Micro-Influencer Collaborations:

The idea is to identify niche-specific micro-influencers with engaged audiences in your target industry. Collaborate with them to create authentic content like DIY, case studies or product reviews, and leverage their credibility to reach new customers.

6- Customer Referral Gamification:

Merge or Implement a gamified customer referral program where users earn points, badges, or rewards for referring new customers or completing specific actions within your SaaS app.  Okay maybe not too complicated but at least have it in some form.

7- Interactive ROI Calculator Tool:

Something like this, but kind of develop an interactive ROI calculator tool that allows prospects to estimate potential cost savings, competitor comparison or business benefits by using your SaaS app that users will get.

Embed this tool on your website and promote it through targeted campaigns to generate leads.
