Today, we handle ~500 customer chats per day. That is like talking to 15,000 customers every single month, 1 on 1. We bifurcated the support chats into Product Help, Feature Request, and Bugs. We are also very disciplined to add new tags during a new feature release. We look at metrics like the total number of chats related to bugs, which feature gets the maximum number of product help queries, what are the most used support articles etc.
When asking customers to refer you, use the altruistic “Invite a friend to give them $20 off, you will get $20 too” rather than the selfish “Invite a friend to get $20 off, they will also get $20 off” or the commonly used “Invite a friend to both get $20 off”. Try to ask for a referral right after the customer has purchased your product (or consumed it, depending on what you sell).

Clermont-Ferrand, France, 1900. Andre and Edouard Michelin had just started making tyres. The problem was there were less than 300 cars in France. So hoping to encourage car ownership they published the world’s first Michelin Guide. Over the next decade the number of motorists soared. And so did demand for the guide. The Michelin brothers made something so useful they never had to worry about selling tyres.

If you’ve ever read any of the SaaS Marketer case studies, you know I really care about sneezing. Yep – sneezing. Whenever I try to break down growth of a SaaS, I’m always looking at how they empower users to sneeze to their network. Sneezing requires less intent the word-of-mouth, it takes less forethought and is easier to generate, especially in the early days… sending the Calendly link to a prospect, sending the Loom video to your team, etc.
