Welcome to SaaS Growth Hacks!

I’m Aaron Krall. I’m honored and thrilled to have you here.

SGH is a community of founders, CEOs, and professionals related to the SaaS world. This group has helped thousands of folks start, scale, and run their SaaS businesses.

You’ve made it in… congrats. Here’s how not to get banned...


This group is open for any member to publish a post. We’d like to keep it that way and we are counting on you to make it possible.

1. Are you new here? Introduce yourself! Tell us who you are, where you're from, and talk about your SaaS. Don’t be salesy. Intros are good, launch posts are not. The first tend to be super friendly and introduce members, the latter tend to be promotional (come one... you know what we mean).

2. Before posting SEARCH THE GROUP! Chances are your question has been answered by someone. Check the Popular Topic Post tags on the right and click on a tag to see all posts related to that term.

3. If you DON'T see your question answered, ask away! Make sure to ask for very specific feedback. Give advice. Start a discussion. This is a place for you to learn from some of the top SaaS Founders and Executives in the industry. Discussion is HIGHLY encouraged (but remember, be kind :) )

4. NO LINKS to articles, blogs, posts, videos. You'll see plenty of these from ME, but that's because it's my group and I can do waddiwant!

Posts like this will be deleted and offenders will be warned. Two warns = banned. So PLEASE don't do that, I'd love to have you in the group a long time.

INSTEAD, read the article, blog or video and post the highlights from the article and any insights you gained as a native TEXT Facebook post.

You CAN post an article in the comments though in response to a question.

Each week you'll see three threads:

Launch It Monday: You can post about ANYTHING you've launched, articles, blogs, videos, podcasts, updates to your tool, pretty much anything.

Job Posting Wednesday: Hiring or looking for work? Post a short description/resume.

Special Offer Friday: Although promotional posts in the group are NOT ALLOWED unless approved by yours truly, this thread is where you can PROMOTE your PANTS OFF. Post anything you can think of, nothing is off the table.


1. You can link to your Product Hunt launch the day it goes live. Refrain from linking to other people’s Product Hunt pages.

2. Do not post Appsumo (or similar) deals. There are many other groups out there for LTDs and SaaS discounts.

3. SHORT LINKS ARE ABSOLUTELY NOT ALLOWED. They will get you booted from the group.

4. Asking for “feedback” as a veiled promotion will cost you a stern warning. Please, don’t try to game the system ;)

Blatant self-promotion will get you banned and blocked.

If you have ANY other questions, please reach out to Fede Jorge or Joshua Sharp, the two main admins of the group.

See you on the inside!
