I'm not sure what you're asking exactly but if you're asking if certain SaaS products are meant for specific industries then yeah for sure. The company I work for sells a lead gen platform that can only really be used for anyone that is generating inbound web and call traffic. Other than that there's no real use case

Yes that’s what I meant, also rephrased my question. I especially mean certain products which can actually be used in all industries however one industry could be more adoptive than another.

Well to answer the re-phrased, then yes. It's better to become an expert in one vertical than to be a generalist imo

This entirely depends on the product you are selling. So in some cases yes, some cases no

If you join a SaaS company and thrive at the beginning due to inbound leads and good SDR and then sales start going down due to a change of SDR and less inbounds, does that mean you’re not a competent sales person or does it mean it’s time to move on to another company?
