9 hot AI based SaaS solving unique problems and 5 predictions
Over the past 3 months I’ve seen 1000+ AI/chatGPT based products and most of them are automating writing (emails, copywriting, blogs, transcripts, tweets, essays, summaries, reviews, outreach messages, resume, cover letter, academic papers and so on).
But there are some that are differentiating themselves by picking other niches. I’ve listed the products that are solving non-writing use cases using AI and meet one or more of the 5 predictions on future of SaaS.
I’ve used 5 predictions from gregisenberg's list (link below) that also match the patterns I’ve seen in SaaS business models while building Microsaasdb.
