Recap

  • John powerfully reveals how three PLG companies drive revenue expansion through different pricing models.

  • For Seat-Based pricing, like Roadmunk, the goal is to drive more user adoption by offering different seat types at varying costs.

5️⃣ Austin Yang

Strategy or Tactic: Tactic

Growth lever = Retention

Recap

  • Austin shares that you're likely overlooking the % of mobile signups / total signups metric. I love this topic because it’s often overlooked in growth marketing too.

  • He explains that mobile users typically activate 2-4X worse than desktop users, which could skew your activation rate.

  • Be sure to segment your activation and onboarding data by the user's signup device to make informed decisions and reveal hidden uplifts.

6️⃣ My Post of the Week → The Product-led Marketing bridge

Strategy or Tactic: Tactic

Growth lever = Acquisition

Recap

  • Product-led Marketing (PLM) is the critical bridge between Product-led Acquisition (PLA) and Marketing-Led Acquisition (MLA).

  • PLM uses product distribution to meet the end user at their pain point, making it a low CAC, sustainable method of acquisition.

  • PLM tactics include templates, integrations, product demos, education, communities, and ungating products, all focusing on strong distribution, SEO, dynamic changes, and regenerative flywheel motions.

  • I want to emphasize that marketing is essential in PLG, urging marketing teams not to wait for product teams to do all the work.
