I’ve heard every excuse in the book from companies on why they don’t consider freemium. “We’re an enterprise product and freemium doesn’t work for enterprise.”, “If we implement freemium, it will cannibalize revenue from sales teams.”, “Freemium will only drive low quality users.”, “Freemium products just won’t be cost effective.” These are all myths.
The secret to shipping successful product is clearly defining for your team the problem that you’re setting out to solve. However, a problem statement is useless if it’s not written correctly. A problem statement focuses on what the customer needs, not what you think the solution should be. This is hard and counterintuitive, because humans are wired to think in solutions.
Security products are sold with a top-down approach focussing on enterprise teams. The problem: There’s a relatively small number of these teams. Snyk found a way to expand their audience exponentially. Snyk puts developers first not only in terms of their cloud native application security product, but also in terms of how they market and sell that product.
