Warapping native UI components in react native is lot more natural as react native already wraps many native UI components such as ScrollView and TextInput as part of their core UI library.

When comes to SaaS tools, one of the interesting metrics is ratio between ARPU (Avg revenue per user also known as avg lifetime value of the customer — LTV) and CAC (Cutomer acquition cost). This ratio will tell us how long will it take to recover money that we invest to acquire the customers.

If CAC demands good resource & time, it make sense to focus on large ticket customers to get better ARPU/CAC ratio.

For DIY SaaS tools, CAC is mostly nothing, hence DIY tool business is more attarctive.

  2. Non linear (Exponential — Hokey stick pattern) growth — DIY products and services. Ex: Google, Apple

A startup showing signs of non-linear growth excites investors.
