3 Micro-SaaS Ideas around Integrations

As platforms such as Airtable, Notion, Slack, Bubble, Shopify and others continue to grow in popularity, new opportunities to build integration solutions around them arise.

Micro SaaS Ideas around Integrations

Business founders want to get a summary of various stats every day. This could be stats coming from Analytics, Sales data, Twitter, or from any system. Building a Slack app around this will help many founders to get the stats every day at a given time from various systems.

This could be summaries like “12 purchases made in last 24 hours. 3 cancellations” or “247 visitors visited the website” or something similar to that. Integrating this with customers' CRM and marketing tools would save a lot of time for the founders.

Add-on can be provided to get this summary for every X number of hours.: Slack has more than 2000 apps built on top of it. Some of these are making more than $100K ARR (Annual Recurring Revenue).

Most people have multiple domains purchased from multiple vendors. Create a Micro-SaaS tool that lets users connect to multiple DNS providers like GoDaddy, NameCheap, Google Domains, AWS Route53, etc, and fetches all data from various vendors, and displays it in a single dashboard.

The tool should not only display the data but should also let manage multiple domains all one place by performing DNS changes, making payments, etc as well. For people with hundreds of domains, it is often not easy to handle and maintain all domains as logging into multiple platforms takes a lot of time and is a messy process. A unified dashboard around this will help many founders have multiple domains from multiple vendors.

Make sure you go through the API docs of various providers - GoDaddy APIs, NameCheap APIs, AWS Route53 APIs . Most of these providers have sandbox environments as well to play around with the APIs before building the actual product.

Create a Micro-SaaS tool that helps with automation of marketing and sales using Whatsapp/SMS/Telegram communication. Compared to email communication, this communication is more effective and costlier too.

To start with, you can use Twilio SMS APIs to send text messages (SMS). Twilio also provided WhatsApp APIs. Telegram already has inbuilt APIs that can be extended to connect to Telegram users. Make sure to check Twilio pricing before you build an App.

To save Twilio charges, you can also leverage Whatsapp Business API directly to provide integration with Shopify. If you need more ideas in Shopify, start your search in the app store and see the integration-related apps. You can either pick an existing app and improve the idea or pick a new one. But make sure you read through the reviews and understand the user behavior of Shopify buyers.
