It should come to no surprise that SaaS Valuations are all about the Growth. How fast are you growing the top line revenue is all that matters.
SaaS valuations have been very healthy and the trend looks to stay the same. The only two metrics that matter to the financiers seem to be Forward Revenue and Trailing Revenue. If you are bold and your trailing revenue supports a predictable high revenue growth, you can secure a huge multiple on your forward plans. Something between 12-20X. If not, you will have to settle for a 5X on forward revenue. And you can easily see in this chart.
Wait, so if you are a low growth SaaS company, you can still land a 5X valuation on forward revenue. I think that rocks.
The question the entrepreneur needs to ask is what kind of company are they and what do they want to be. But it is pretty clear to me that most entrepreneurs and financiers want to be in SaaS companies because of charts like this.

Rallyverse now supports direct publishing to your WordPress blog.
You can create original WordPress content, build content from Rallyverse-curated links, or even from automated aggregations from within Rallyverse. Whatever your approach to your blog, Rallyverse is now making it a whole lot easier to create more content.
In the Rallyverse editor, you should now see fourth publishing destination which, when clicked, opens up an html editor where you can build your WordPress post.
You get everything you’d expect from a blog editor: a WYSIWYG editor that lets you apply styles and add images to your post, the ability to select categories, tags and authors, and all the scheduling tools that power all your other social accounts.
But, more than the basics, you get the opportunity to power your blog with content recommendations from Rallyverse. Here are some of the ways you can use Rallyverse to create more content for WordPress.
Comment on an article, post or image
See something in Rallyverse that you’d like to share on your blog? An article you’d like to link to or comment on? Click on any item and we’ll give you a formatted link that will fit right into your blog’s styles. Rallyverse also gives you multiple options to display the link (inline or hero) in case you want to share a large image (like an infographic — for example, this).
Build a post from your Rallyverse lists: social selling, top 5, sent posts
Rallyverse allows you to manually or automatically aggregate content into Lists for social selling and email distribution. You can also add any of those lists to a blog post with a click:
Just click “Send to blog” and we’ll open up an editor window for you to craft a post. For example, you can share your Top 5 social posts from the past week, along with your comments on why you think they each worked.
Add WordPress posts to your content calendar
Since you’re creating WordPress content alongside your other social posts and social selling emails, you can see how your blog posts fit into your overall content strategy and where it sits on your content calendar.
How to get started
WordPress is available to all Rallyverse clients. If you host your own instance of WordPress, you’ll need to have Jetpack installed and a wordpress.com account to connect Rallyverse to your blog.
