Integration is Opportunity™
Managed Integrations for SaaS
Left Hook Process and Pricing:
Ready, Grow, and Support
Capturing your Integration Opportunity requires purposeful, long-term cultivation and continuous improvement.
Left Hook builds connectors and apps for our SaaS customers. We produce and distribute code to other third-party platforms on your behalf.
However, we perform this work differently than a typical hourly rate dev shop.
We deliver our expertise through a monthly subscription model, intentionally required to build virtuous cycles of feedback, improvement, and strategic performance together.
Incoming! The more your customers love your Integration Opportunities, the more support they need.
It is a required add-on to your IO Plan starting at $200/month.
Is your SaaS ready for all this opportunity? Let's find out!
The Ready Stage involves a Competitive Analysis, Developer Experience and API Review, and an assessment of your product's many Integration Opportunities.
Click below to learn more about the Ready Report process.
Our Ready Report is a testing and consulting process that answers critical questions before you subscribe to any annual IO Plan.
The report consists of thee sections:
First is a Competitive Analysis, where we analyze your competitors and recap what integrations they currently support, with a specific focus (at this moment) on what they have available on Zapier. We also assess your current integrations and compare your offerings to your nearest competitors.
Second is a Developer Experience and API Review, documenting our critiques, concerns, and compliments regarding how your API and overall DX presents to developers.
Third is a Integration Opportunity Assessment, where we recommend Channels where we recommend platforms, marketplaces, directories, and direct partnerships that could be productive Integration Opportunities for your SaaS app. We’ll also provide our breakdown on what could be built today without any further API development on your end, versus which opportunities could be enabled later after additional development is complete.
The Ready Stage takes 15 business days from the moment we gain working access to your API.
With weekends, expect 21 days.
The Ready Stage results in a finished Ready Report that confirms that your SaaS is ready for the potential technical, marketing, and support challenges that are the natural result of offering new Integration Opportunities.
The Ready Report sets the table for a strategic discussion with our team about how we can build and support your integrations over time.
At the end of the Ready Report process, we'll likely propose to build one or more of your requested integrations.
Our services will be delivered via an IO Plan, a flexible annual subscription with a predictable monthly or yearly cost.
We offer several different IO Plans tailored to your specific needs. Here are four simple options to help guide your understanding of our pricing:
Example IO Plans:
Our Annual Support Plan is required with any IO Plan.
When you subscribe to one of our IO Plans, a concurrent Annual Support Plan will be automatically added.
You will receive the first-ever month of support FREE, with an additional eleven additional payments of $200 per month.
Our Support Plan includes a limited number of minutes available for our team to communicate, troubleshoot, and push fixes for existing features that malfunction.
