You can’t win

That’s how Freshworks Founder & CEO Girish Mathrubootham started out his opening letter in the company’s recent S-1 filing. Girish attributes Freshworks’ success to being unconventional from the beginning: “We didn’t target large enterprises. We didn’t have access to a been-there-done-that talent pool. We designed our products for the people actually using them. We offered a ‘fresh’ approach relying on efficient, product-led, low-cost, and low-touch sales; and we targeted massive, underserved markets.”

What is the Product the Customer Buys Before They Buy Yours?

As a customer progresses along their journey, they evolve from a previous inferior state to a new superior one. Whatever the journey is, the customer isn’t purchasing just one solution to solve their needs. The typical mid-market company purchases 137 SaaS products, and the figure grows 30% annually.

Thinking about product-led growth

I’ve been thinking about product-led growth (PLG) for a while now. These products market themselves, have low churn and massive potential. I thought I’d share an example, and encourage you to think about your own products - and whether PLG makes sense for your business model. I see a brilliant product-led growth plan that Clideo executed perfectly. How perfectly? 4.1M monthly users perfectly 🤯

Nine Marketing Lessons To Optimize Your B2B Marketing Strategy

Ready for a marketing brain dump? I’m going to share with you 9 simple marketing lessons that have shaped my perspective on marketing. B2B marketing is more similar to B2C than most people think, but you’re still selling to people. People with emotions. People who have complex lives. People who have different motivations from one another. Some marketers will hate me for this BUT… It’s true. Top of the funnel marketing is great but it’s not always necessary.

Demand driving supply

Marketplaces have the most interesting growth loops. Your supply can drive your demand, your demand can drive your supply, demand can drive more demand, and supply can drive more supply. What a world! If you can find, nurture, and accelerate one or two of these loops, you’ll find a powerful new growth lever that your competition may not have.

Customer Onboarding Effort and Retention

How long does it take to get a new customer live? What are the steps involved? How much manual labor is required? We weren’t self-service freemium.

Social Proof 💬 Why We Buy

Social proof is a psychological phenomenon where people look to others to help them make better decisions or adopt the right behaviour. When we’re uncertain about what to do, we assume that the people around us (experts, celebrities, friends, etc.) have more knowledge about what’s going on and what should be done. There are 6 categories of social proof that people respond best to: Experts, Celebrities (paid or unpaid), Users (past and present), Wisdom of the Crowd (approval from a large group of people), Peers, and Certification.

How to Influence Without Authority

As a Product Manager, you are working within a discipline that exists at the intersection of many other functions, but rarely have these disciplines directly reporting to you. Being able to influence all these simultaneously is not an easy task, but a necessary one in order to drive outcomes for your customers and the business you work for.

9 Examples of Effective Google Ads Campaigns

Every ad campaign consists of two distinct phases: The pre-click phase and the post-click phase. When creating ad campaigns, many digital marketers focus too narrowly on optimizing just the ads (the pre-click phase). A great Google Ads campaign will also build a compelling post-click experience—one that convinces customers to stay, learn, and eventually convert. The difference between an average Google Ads campaign and a great one is that a great campaign focuses more on the post-click phase.

How Long Does It Take to Build an MVP?

So, you want to know how long it will take for you to build an MVP and put it into the hands of your users. The short answer is that, in my experience working with dozens of startups at, it shouldn’t take more than three to four months to build an MVP.
