I often get asked about the value of having technical skills when investing in a Micro-SaaS business. Technical skills exist on a spectrum that covers a wide range, from knowing how to operate a WordPress site all the way to being a developer with many years of experience, and where you fall on that spectrum is an important aspect of your acquisition criteria. For example, I look at mostly WordPress businesses because that’s where most of my experience is development-wise. Naturally, that’s where I have the most industry connections, and many of the products that I look at are products I’ve actually used. That’s not to say that I don’t feel confident that I could potentially run a Shopify app business, acquire a mobile app or a Chrome extension, but all else being equal, I choose to go where my experience lies.
