One of the most exciting parts about the growth of SaaS builders is what’s called Micro SaaS. Micro SaaS is the same as a SaaS product except it is hyper focused on one specific issue or one specific niche. They typically are not as complex and they are a lot easier to get started. 

Here are 21 micro SaaS ideas that are easy to start.

1. AI Meal Planner for Nutritionists

Nutritionists help their clients by guiding them with the proper meal plan. They help each client meet their goals and find success with their health and fitness. Here’s the challenge - they cannot just tell their clients how many calories, proteins and carbs. They also guide them with recipe after recipe. The client actually has to like the food. Coming up with new meals that are healthy and taste great is a challenge for everyone. Imagine having multiple clients and having to come up with new recipes all the time. 

By creating a micro SaaS product, you are solving a major pain point for nutritionists and saving them a lot of time. AI could generate the recipes for them and help streamline their services. They can then focus their time on getting new clients building their business. This could be a gamechanger for nutritionists who feel stuck and that they do not have time to scale their business.

2. Calendar Scheduler

One creative way to improve a calendar scheduler is to create a calendar micro SaaS product that targets a specific niche. One of the best calendar products out there is calendly. It provides a way for people to schedule appointments with you and organize a team. This is a broad application. The power of a niche is that you can design the calendar to fit the needs of the specific niche. 

You could create a calendar for sports facilities. This would give each group that is renting out space to choose the specific field/court that they want. There could be drop down menus with the specific locations listed. You could highly customize it just for the niche. They could also choose what sports equipment, scoreboard usage, and other amenities. This is a great example of how you can set yourself apart with a micro saas product. By choosing a niche, you are making yourself super appealing to one group of people.

3. Social Media Schedule for Niches

One of the biggest challenges for businesses and people to grow a social media following is that it is about consistency over time. All kinds of businesses have tried to launch their social media. They know they have a need for it. The problem is, many of them start to fade as time goes on. It becomes hard to come up with new posts. It can take a long time to find the right stock images or take them themselves. The need for social media has not gone away. However, the time and creative energy became too much. 

This is where your SaaS product transforms their social media. Imagine if a business owner could get into the app at the beginning of the month. All of the stock images and photo/video editing tools are right there in the app. They write out their captions in one place and drag and drop the posts to days on the calendar. Then, the app automatically sends the posts to each of the social media platforms. Within a couple hours, their social media is done for the month.


Integrate AI so that all they have to do is tell the app what they want the post to be about. Then, the AI component would write out a caption and they can edit as needed.

4. Email Marketing Templates

There is a huge need right now for email marketing. It is one of the best ways for businesses to connect with their customers and get a return on investment. A lot of business owners know what they want to say but they do not have the design skills to make it visually appealing. They are stuck with trying to make it look visually appealing while still getting their message across. 

Rather than hire a graphic designer, they could use your micro SaaS product and make their content look professional. There are a number of ways that you could set your pricing
  • Monthly Subscription: They could pay a monthly fee and get access to the library of templates plus new releases.
  • Set Cost: You could charge per the set of templates. You could package a set number of templates together and sell them for a one time cost.

  • Free and Paid: Your SaaS product could offer free templates to encourage people to try your product. Then, there would be a cost for the higher end templates. 

5. Missed Call Text Responder

This may seem simple, but it can make a huge difference for a business. Being able to connect with someone who is looking for the service you offer is a crucial part of successfully turning that lead into a paying customer. However, many business owners do not have the budget to hire someone at the front desk.

The SaaS product could connect with the lead and let them know that you will call them right back. GoHighLevel is a great example of a Saas product that does this. They offer all kinds of features. However, this is one of the most powerful features that they offer and it allows businesses to connect with each potential customer that reaches out to their number. They even integrate with Google My Business.

One of the ways to make your missed call text responder stand out is by customizing it towards a specific niche. You can have all of the wording and language set up for them so all they have to do is add their phone number and start capturing leads.

Real estate agents are always looking for a way to gain an edge and make a property more appealing. There are a ton of real estate agents trying to get sales. Not only that, they are trying to sell people on the idea of choosing a specific location to be at for years. A tool like this helps real estate agents close more deals.

More and more people are moving to new locations and working remotely. Over the last few years, many people have bought houses site unseen. This tool would create a way to make the buying process more personal and help families have a better understanding of what the home really looks like.

This is a perfect example of a micro saas product. It targets a niche and it solves a specific issue that people within that niche run into. You do not have to create a huge platform that has every home available listed on it. You do not have to create a complex algorithm for people to find certain homes. You only have to focus on connecting the potential buyers with their real estate agent through a video.

7. Comic Book Creator

AI art can do incredible things. People could give the comic book creator prompts and it could illustrate the stories they are creating. They could then fill in the dialogue and storylines. 

A Comic Book Creator could add a social component that would make it a really unique SaaS product. You could provide the platform and templates. Then writers and illustrators could come together and make comic books together. You would not have to be talented at every aspect. You could leverage whichever part you wanted to do and find someone else to help fill in the gaps.

8. Wedding Shopping Price Comparison Tool

No one finishes a wedding and thinks, “That was a lot cheaper than I thought!” According to The Zola Team at, the average wedding cost in 2023 is $29,000.

There are all kinds of decisions about what wedding dress, venue, invitations, meals and catering, and decorations.

There is an issue that people run into. It is not quick and simple to create these. Especially if people are not good at design and aesthetics. Not only that, it can be hard to figure out how to use the signature features through email settings.

You could create a simple tool where people could upload a photo, links, and any info that they want added in your micro SaaS tool would create it for them. It could resize the image and arrange it with the right colors and fonts.

It all changes when someone has a kid themselves. Parents are busy and trying to do a million things. Teachers want parent involvement but it is not always easy to get ahold of them and communicate efficiently. One messaging app could help solve it. The great part is, the student is the one who benefits by getting more support from their educators and parents.

You could help solve this issue by creating a resource that helps people know where products rank based on health and environmental safety.

One of the big challenges to creating this SaaS product would be researching and getting a detailed understanding of different products but there are tons of resources out there to help. Not only that, There is a lot of pressure on companies to be transparent about their products so they are trying harder and harder to explain what is in their products.
