Folks folks have been running early-access this way, for years, on Kickstarter.
Don't wait until you've launched your product to start collecting revenue and getting feedback!
In a product launch, the most crucial stage happens before
you've actually launched! This is when you're building anticipation for the product itself, and when you're inviting people to give you their ideas and feedback.
If you're going to collect ideas and feedback for SaaS, it should be from paying customers: people who are willing to put down money, and join you on the journey.
We hope this is helpful!

BTW – you can still register for the Meeps early-access
, and get a substantial discount, before we officially launch! 🎯
