What Ruby Digital can do for your SaaS platform:

Software as a Service is a highly nuanced and rapidly changing field. As your customer’s needs and challenges shift, you need to remain agile and flexible enough not just to keep pace, but to actually anticipate and adapt to those challenges before they impact your clients.

As a leading SaaS SEO agency, we believe your digital marketing team should be just as agile! That’s why we’re constantly on the lookout for new ways to boost your MRR, bring down your user acquisition costs, grow customer loyalty and engagement, and get your offering in front of the right people at the right time.

How digital marketing for SaaS differs from other industries

There are a few core differences between Software as a Service and other products which have a big impact on the best ways to market them.

Reliance on existing customers

The vast majority of a SaaS company’s revenue comes from their existing subscribers. This means customer retention is absolutely critical – even more so than customer acquisition. While many SaaS digital marketing agencies use the same playbook for SaaS clients as for other industries, Ruby Digital understands this crucial difference, and ensures a large focus is placed on keeping your current customers happy, informed, and engaged.

Speedy sales cycle

When people shop for ‘normal’ products, they like to compare different options, research, read up on reviews, and generally mull things over. Not so for SaaS companies. Generally, your target customer knows what they need, and they want it now. From an SEO perspective, this means homing in on the right terms and keywords to get your platform in front of those ready-to-trial businesses and individuals whose problems your SaaS solution solves.

Done right, SaaS sells itself!

What separates a successful SaaS platform from one that fails? It all really boils down to two key components: Does your software deliver, and is it backed by awesome customer support? If the answer to these questions is yes, then the hard work is already done. All you need is a reliable SaaS digital marketing company like Ruby Digital to make sure your future clients are finding your website and signing up for demos.

SEO for SaaS

Our SaaS SEO experts understand the need for a different approach for this industry, and indeed each individual client. The purposes of SaaS platforms differ immensely – from B2B data solutions for large corporates, to B2C platforms for professionals and individuals. What they have in common is offering a convenient, easily accessed, subscription-based service for their customers.

Our SaaS SEO strategy for your business therefore starts with getting to know all about your USP, how it makes your customers’ lives better, and what the challenges they’re trying to solve are. We then use our extensive SEO, PPC and content marketing expertise to make sure the right people are hearing about your platform at the right time.

This ranges from resolving any technical SEO issues which may be harming your website’s performance in search engine results, to helping you craft insightful blog posts and website copy to convince potential subscribers they’ve definitely come to the right place. In highly competitive SaaS niches, we can also run and manage high return on investment paid advertising campaigns to get your SaaS service to the top of the pile fast.

Ruby Digital is a South African SaaS SEO agency in Cape Town and Johannesburg with an international footprint. We’ve helped businesses around the globe and in dozens of highly competitive industries outrank their rivals, and grow their customer base and profits. Our holistic SaaS SEO strategies can do the same for you!

Digital marketing for SaaS

We find out what questions your potential subscribers are asking, and make sure they find all the answers on your website. We engage with them through the channels they prefer most, so they associate your brand with trustworthiness and ease of use.
