Micro-SaaS has become a popular topic among entrepreneurs looking to tackle challenges for a specific target audience. A micro SaaS company or product focuses on solving a problem in a specific niche market with limited resources. Large budgets and investments are not required. The company is often run by one person or a small staff, with a tiny yet committed customer base.
Customers gain access to the product or service by paying a recurring subscription, which is usually paid monthly or yearly.
