We all use different tools to get our work done. Marketers depend on Hubspot, growth teams on Avoma and designers cannot live without Figma! But with so many solutions coming up for different pain points in the market, it’s not easy to keep up with all of them. That’s why I wanted to talk about 4 underrated SaaS products that could be a game-changer in your professional life.
I did some digging and also spoke to other friends in the SaaS industry to find out products that they have been using but feel are underrated. Let’s take a look!
Many of you probably use this and if you do, you know how much easier writing becomes. For those who don’t know, Copy.ai is an AI-powered writing tool that produces human-like content. It helps you write better captions, headlines and paragraphs for your blogs, websites and so on. In short, it’s a gold mine for Marketers and Copywriters. Although many feel that Copy.ai could replace writers, the goal is to ensure writers can focus on the creative part while Copy.ai takes care of bringing that creativity to life.
Some features I personally love about this tool are:
1. Available in 25+ languages
2. A neatly laid out dashboard
3. Easy-to-use features
4. Built-in plagiarism checker
5. Affordable— with their free account covering almost all the important features and the pro package starting at $49 a month.
Yes, it is an acronym for “Too long, didn’t view” but it’s also the name of a product that’s on a mission to change our never-ending meeting culture. How? tl;dv lets you transcribe, record and timestamp your meetings, which means if only a certain part of a long meeting is applicable to a particular person or department, then you can just timestamp it for them to check it out later at their own pace. The goal is to have fewer focused meetings and more time focusing on the actual work. It’s available on Google Meet and Zoom!
I have been following their social media for a while now and I have to say that I am in love with how extra (in a good way) they are with all their marketing activities. I mean, take a look at this awesome launch video!
Rafiki is an enhanced conversation and revenue intelligence platform that helps you deliver great demos, contextually follow up with meeting video snippets, answer questions as in-line comments, engage prospects at their convenience and close more deals faster.
The best part? Rafiki has no minimum license or registration fees and offers one-click integration with SMB-focused CRMs such as Zoho, Freshsales and Pipedrive.
I think at this point, it’s obvious that we all know that visual media is more easily consumed than written ones. According to a scientific study, 90% of media stored by our brain is visual. Then why not educate your customers about your product through engaging videos? That’s exactly what Trainn helps you to do. You can create professional-looking training, how-to and walkthrough videos in 5 minutes, and also measure the ROI of your video strategy by tracking video engagement, viewer behaviours, and your customers' learning progress.
In other news…Twitter sues Elon Musk!?
“How can they sue him? Doesn’t he own Twitter?” Those were my first thoughts when I heard the news. Turns out he didn’t own the company yet and back in April, he had only agreed to buy Twitter for $44 billion. (Reminds me of how Amber Heard pledged to donate the divorce money to charity but didn’t actually do it 🙈 ). Anyway, when he tried to walk away from the deal, Twitter sued him and forced him to complete the acquisition as per their agreement. Twitter’s shares also fell by 11% when news of Elon Musk’s deal termination surfaced.
Mr Musk claims that the reason he wants to withdraw from the deal is because of Twitter’s hesitation in sharing information about spam bots. It was also reported that Musk sent a text to Twitter’s CEO, Parag Agrawal on June 28th that read “Your lawyers are using this conversation to cause trouble. This needs to stop”. Mr Musk reportedly sent this message after Twitter asked him how he would be financing the deal.
NASA’s Webb delivers the clearest picture of the universe!
Last week, NASA’s powerful James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) captured the world’s sharpest pictures of the universe. The first picture taken was a portion of the night sky called SMACS 0723, which showed arrays of distant galaxies. Peeping deep into the cosmos is just one of the many incredible things that JWST is designed to do. With its 21-foot-wide gold-coated mirror, the observatory can capture light from the distant Universe, objects within our own Solar System, and even the light surrounding far-off worlds.
NASA also revealed pictures within our own galaxy starting with the planet Jupiter and an asteroid. These are just small glimpses into the many sharp images NASA would release over the next couple of months.

What’s brewing on Zeda’s side? ☕
We conducted a fun little contest last week when Thor: Love and Thunder was releasing in theatres. The challenge was asking our users to come up with movie lines from any Marvel movie that could be used by a Product Manager, and the 10 best winners would win free movie tickets! And boy did they deliver! 🥳
