In this interview series, Website Planet is talking to executives from the best online businesses, to cut the fluff and learn what it really takes to create a successful website and online business like they did.

Our guest today is Marian Ignev, Co-Founder & CEO of SashiDo, and passionate entrepreneur, software engineer, and visionary.

SashiDo was founded in 2016 as part of CloudStrap, and since then it has been the go-to mBaaS for over 750 clients, powering 19,000+ mobile applications.

We looked at the top four pain points for mobile app developers and businesses in 2024, and how SashiDo fixes them to simplify complex digital solutions and drive digital transformation at scale.

Since you started, what helped you grow your online business?

SashiDo’s growth can be attributed to several key strategies and tools. The main one is our customer-centric approach and focus on building long-term relationships with our clients.
Additionally, our platform is built on a robust tech stack, including Parse Server, MongoDB, and Kubernetes. This setup ensures reliability, scalability, and performance, which are crucial for our customers’ success.

One of the results of the above strategy is that referrals from happy customers have been a significant driver of our growth. Word of mouth from satisfied clients has helped us expand our user base organically.

We have also invested in SEO and content marketing to increase our online visibility. By providing valuable content through blogs and tutorials, we attract developers looking for reliable backend solutions.

What are the top reasons people eventually choose you over competitors?

Last, but not least, proven success is also a critical factor. Testimonials and case studies from satisfied clients, such as the USA Golf Association and KORG, highlight the effectiveness of our solutions and the tangible benefits they offer.
