Negative Nancy says - “Why do I need software to handle my Knowledge base when I can simply use Google Docs and give the link to whoever needs it?”
Me - It's manageable when you're dealing with a small group of 4-5 individuals. However, in situations where you have an extensive library of hundreds of help guides, documents, and video tutorials, you require a more robust system to efficiently organize and manage these resources at scale. Each additional minute a user invests in searching for the pertinent help guide brings them closer to churn or deters them from becoming paying customers.
Negative Nancy says - “Who leverages AI to learn from docs? Aren't documents traditionally intended for manual reading and comprehension?”
Me - PdfAI crossed $200K ARR in less than a year by helping users to learn faster from PDFs docs. People are happily paying for such solutions.
🤿🤿 Deep-dive &&💡💡 Some niches
Micro SaaS for Personal Knowledge Management (PKM): [B2C & B2B Scope]
Personal Knowledge Management tools can help bring together users everyday notes from places like Notion, Docs, Emails, and Notepads etc. They make it easier to organize all this information, acting like a virtual filing system. This can simplify users thinking, reduce mental clutter, and provide clarity. These tools gather all of that in one place, making it less chaotic. Plus, they let users find what they need quickly, which can make them more efficient and help think more clearly in daily activities. These products were traditionally seen as something for individual consumers (B2C). However, companies like Mem have changed how people view these products. Now, many companies want to provide these tools to help their employees be more productive and save time by using their notes and bookmarks. This shift in thinking recognizes that managing knowledge isn't just for personal use but can be really useful for businesses too. It helps employees learn and work better, and it makes the company more efficient overall. So, these products are no longer just for personal use but also for businesses to make work easier. Some products in this space are Capacities, Twos, Rewind, Mem(Received $29 million in funding)
Micro SaaS for AI-Powered Knowledge Extraction from Podcasts or YouTube videos:
Getting knowledge from Podcasts or YouTube videos is like mining gems of information. When you listen or watch, you're not just entertaining yourself; you're learning. From podcasts, you can pick up insights on topics you're passionate about, whether it's science, history, or self-improvement. It's like having a conversation with experts in your ear. YouTube videos take it a step further. You can see and hear the knowledge in action. From DIY tutorials to deep dives into complex subjects, it's a visual treasure trove. But the complex part is taking notes and organize the learnings while listening to a podcast or learning from a Youtube video. That is where some founders started building products to organize the learnings for people who use Podcasts and Youtube regularly. Podwise is one such product aimed at knowledge extraction but specific to podcast listeners.
AI-Powered Tool for Creating Customised Learning Pathways from Knowledge base
Creating ‘customised learning pathways’ from a Knowledge Base is all about making learning highly efficient and personalised. It's like having a tailored roadmap to knowledge. The goal is to ensure that individuals, whether they're new employees, students, or anyone seeking to acquire specific skills, can access the most relevant information from your extensive knowledge repository. It’s like leveraging AI to help understand the content better but more from a ‘teaching/learning’ perspective. For example, products like YouLearn helps users create a customised learning path based on a study guide, document, pdf, video file, RSS feed or a Youtube video. It’s like having an AI tutor to understand the lectures and educational content better.
GPT-powered chatbot trained on Company’s Help Docs for Customer Support and Onboarding
Many organizations possess extensive data within their help documentation. Frequently, individuals attempt to locate specific information in these documents. If they can't find what they need, they turn to a chatbot for manual assistance. This happens because the content in the help documentation is often challenging for users to access and comprehend easily. This issue is being addressed by many emerging startups utilizing OpenAI's technology. They aim to create chatbots capable of comprehensively reading a company's help documentation and delivering user-friendly responses within the chat interface. Additionally, these chatbots can provide relevant reference links, ensuring users have quick access to supplementary information when necessary. The beauty of these tools is that they can automatically scrape all your pages/help docs without you manually entering the links. This is a growing trend with products like My AskAI, Chatbase, dante-ai.com and Question Base coming in this space.
My AskAI: Reached $14k MRR 300+ users.
dante-ai.com: Hit $7K MRR in less than a month of launch.
Chatbase: Reached $59,000 in MRR in 3.5 months
