PLG is Only Half the Story

Doubling your self-serve revenue requires more than a free trial, a good onboarding experience, and transparent pricing. You also need to create an unshakeable foundation. Without it, PLG initiatives are often doomed from the start.
Which is why ...

We Designed the ProductLed System

After helping 324+ SaaS companies implement PLG, we identified 9 key components you MUST level up to build an unstoppable product-led business. In ProductLed Academy, we’ll implement each of these components together. Our approach will unify your GTM team with practical, easy-to-implement frameworks.

FAQs

Nope. You can still have a sales team at your company. However, we believe the best companies MUST design products that can sell themselves. That means your product is easy for users to signup, get to value and upgrade all on their own without any handholding. This is perfect for small companies that your sales leaders don’t want to spend time with anyways. So they can focus on the bigger companies with the larger commissions.
Unlike most SaaS companies where the goal is to make the entry point low, we want you to commit financially to becoming product-led. The transformation starts at the transaction. If we let you pay monthly, you simply wouldn’t be as committed. We want companies to go all-in. That way you’re surrounded by committed teams. By forcing everyone to pay upfront we ensure our clients pay attention.
The course combines on-demand content with live calls. If you can’t make the live calls on Thursday at 11:30 AM (EST), you can watch the recording that’s available the next day.
It takes roughly 12 months to install the full "ProductLed System" in your business. On average, we spend about four to six weeks building out each of these components:
  • Vision - Defining a compelling vision that gets your team fired up, and mapping out a clear strategy for getting there.
  • User - Going deeper than “jobs to be done” with improved customer research processes and KPIs.
  • Model - Identifying and fine-tuning the best product-led model for your users, beyond simply “freemium or free trial”.
  • Offer - Distilling the value of your product into an irresistible offer that more users get excited to sign up for.
  • Experience - Improving your onboarding by deploying a proven framework for getting users to value faster.
  • Pricing - Optimizing for scale by aligning pricing with value metrics—so that revenue scales with user success.
  • Data - Identifying the 5-15 metrics that are mission-critical in monitoring potential bottlenecks as you grow.
  • Process - Installing a 7-step process for building experiments, prioritizing the high-impact ones, and launching them.
  • Team - Making sure you have the right team members in the right places, with an org structure that can scale.
By mastering each of these components, you’ll be able to scale your self-serve revenue, faster.
Every week, you will have a 10 to 20 minutes of on-demand lessons to watch. Following each lesson, you will spend 1 to 5 hours completing a workbook with your team, We will review your workbook at the live call, with personal feedback from Wes Bush and other PLG experts.
Yes, you can ask as many questions as possible on the live group coaching calls. You’ll also receive access to our Founders Community, where you’ll be paired up with 2 to 3 other founders to be your sounding board on all of your toughest challenges. Here, you can also spark conversations with every other founder in the community to gain their experience-backed advice.
The beauty of the ProductLed System is that it really helps you uncover the real bottlenecks to your growth – whether that be your onboarding, pricing, or something else.

You’ll be able to put your energy towards what will really move the needle on your business, starting today.
Yes! You can bring up to two team members to every coaching call. They’ll also have access to the Founders Community and our training programs – ProductLed Growth Certificate and ProductLed Acquisition.
No, there's no minimum commitment when you pay monthly – you can cancel or pause your coaching at any time. But if you choose to pay upfront, we offer discounted rates for 6 and 12-month commitments.
