How To Build a Product That Sells Itself
The Growth Report #75
Happy Friday you lovely human being,
That’s a wrap.
Season 2 of The Growth Leadership Show comes to an end.
And for this last episode we got Wes Bush, the CEO of ProductLed, the leading community for product-led growth professionals.
“Okay, but what the heck is product-led growth?” you ask.
Let’s get it right from the source:
Product-Led Growth (PLG) is defined as a go-to-market strategy that relies on using your product as the main vehicle to acquire, activate, and retain customers. If you’ve used Slack or Dropbox, you’ve witnessed this first-hand-you didn’t read a lengthy white paper on the benefits of strong internal communication or cloud-based file sharing. You wanted to see the product in action!
Meaning, offering free trials or free tiers of your product so people can try your product before they buy (as opposed to solely relying on your sales and marketing team to get people into a demo call for the prospect to see the experience the product in the first place).
In this episode Wes explains in detail how PLG works and what you need to consider before getting started.
