Why isn’t there an online service hub?
I’ve been curious about this for a while and I’d love your opinion and thoughts.
Business software cost is not an issue really, because you would hopefully be making the money to cover it.
But what about our personal lives?
Entertainment SaaS specifically and maybe some productivity SaaS are still used by most of us every day.
A few examples are;
1. Movie/TV Streaming services
2. Music streaming services
4. Personal storage/backup
5. Other SaaS that is used in our personal life
The problem is, there are a lot of services in each of these categories. The average monthly cost of just 5 TV streaming services can be upward of $50.
The average Australian wage is $70k, and with the cost of living rising drastically, people are cutting off their “additional/not-required” services.
That’s not good, for a few reasons, but the main one is, these services for the most part (and in moderation) make our lives better (in the fun sense). Taking that away seems like a backwards step.
So my questions are,
Why do we have app stores, but not a service store? I mean, some bigger software companies have enough software; their services become like a service store. But I’m talking about all services from all providers, unrestricted.
Yes, some service stores exist, but why do I have to buy something else from another company just to be allowed to have access to that “bundle”?
Why can’t I go online, check boxes for all the services I want (from entertainment to email; the more I choose, the bigger the discount?
I will always choose $4.95 a month over $12.99 a month — unless it’s for business use.
Twitter seems to be trying to be the online hub/place to be to socialise, share ideas and soon bank and buy things.
Why isn’t there a service hub?
With Facebooks Meta I feel like a service hub will be kind of forced because you’ll be in a VR realm.
What do you think?
