I come from the project management world and am brand new to the SaaS world. This book was a great crash course in how to grow a SaaS business. The concepts were easy to understand and the book was very easy to read. Even though I had no previous knowledge of the SaaS world, I now feel like an expert. I'm super excited to get started growing our business.
Wes does an excellent job at guiding business owners through the steps of building a business that is 100% product-led. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn of the strategies they can employ to grow their company via their product. Honestly, this is one of the best written books on product strategy that I have read. I recommended it to my team immediately after finishing it.
A "must-read" for anyone in the SaaS space...or for any marketer, really, B2B or B2C
The mindset and principles that Wes solidly covers in this book are applicable to anyone marketing to millenials (who love good experiences) or Gen Zs (who love good products) - the PLG framework ensures both are taken care of by putting your customer's experience first. An excellent book. You will not want to put this one down and will digitally dog-ear every second page to come back to again and again.
Wes provides a framework which you can instantly apply to your own business. Great examples and ideas that will help you getting started with a product led strategy. Easy to read. Read this on kindle, but will purchase physical version to put in the office as a “handbook” for my colleagues and I.
A must-read book for SaaS founders, especially if you have a self-serve SaaS. Wes has provided a blueprint for creating a complete product-led growth strategy. The book includes both top-level strategic frameworks and tactics like onboarding, product adoption and churn reduction example email sequences.
Essential for SaaS founders! Easy to read and highly actionable, this is an essential read for SaaS founders and those looking to grow an existing business.
Based on a blend of his personal experience, thinking from the best names in the field, and also proven business theories (JTBD, disruptive innovation, behavioral economics, and others) Wes did a great job on writing an easy and practical book that just became a must-read for any modern startup.
If you've been following product-led growth and want to know more about it, then this book is a must-read. I've followed Wes' blogs, webinars and podcast episodes where he's a guest. In this book, learn why product-qualified leads are so much more “qualified” than marketing-qualified leads, how to increase your freemium or free trial conversion and why are some big mistakes marketers make when implementing product-led growth.
As a growth consultant and Saas owner I enjoyed learning about the Product led growth method presented here by Wes. Especially if you have VC funding there is no better way to set up your user acquisition and growth strategy. Also the author discussed alternatives for bootsrapped founders or companies operating in a very small total addressable market. Definitely worth reading and essential knowledge.
Wes wrote an amazing book, the editing is perfect, all the fluff and bullshit been cuted off. This book could have been 600 pages but the author removed all the useless content, it only includes actionnables content with the right amount of words. I learned so much from it, from a business and product perspective. You gonna understand what makes a product great and how to help your users being successful with your product. To anyone that is involved in marketing or creating a product, this book is clearly a must read that you need to read, it gonna help you gain clarity and confidence to create a product by using the good way.
I was impress by the clarity of the message delivered in this book.
All informations are backed by real data and professional experience.
The beginning appeared to be a bit slow for me but it quickly changed after.
I will never see the marketing of SaaS the same way as before. Really eye opening.
Who's the most likely candidate to pay for your product? Someone who's already using it. That's the driver behind Product Led Growth (PLG) strategies. The idea is that instead of (or in addition to) filling your sales pipe with leads pulled in from traditional in-bound and out-bound sales and marketing efforts and then progressively qualifying them as they work through your funnel, you use your product to qualify leads to a much higher level. Users already getting value from your product make the best leads.
PLG isn't without its risks though. What if your free offering doesn't provide enough value users don't get it? What if it provides so much value they don't need to pay to for the additional seats or features? This books helps a product manager like myself think through the different kinds of PLG approaches, understanding the risks and benefits of each approach. I enjoyed the book so much I shared it with the rest of our management team. It's spurred some great discussions and helped us all get on the same page about our approach. Highly recommended for any Software as a Service company that feels like they're hitting the limits of the traditional sales model (or need a leaner approach to bootstrapping their start-up phase).
The new way for software companies to gain a competitive advantage. There are seemingly new SaaS companies coming onto the scene every day. Depending on your business’s stage, Product-Led Growth is a strategy to help you compete or stay ahead of the competition. This book covers everything you need to know on the topic with credible sources and contributors. Can’t recommend it enough.
Product-led growth is a buzzword, yes, but beneath the buzz is a solid foundation of business sense. Wes provides a thorough introduction into the mindsets behind PLG.
Must Read for SaaS Founders and Marketers. Terrific book that should be read by anyone responsible for growing a software company. It's both strategic and inspirational and also offers tactical advice and examples you can employ today.
Great Insight Into Product Led Strategy. Very useful practical guidance on how to determine if PLG strategy is right for your business and how to implement. Wes is a great resource in this space and his book lives up to his reputation.
One of the best marketing books. This book is a gem. You dive in and get the step by step detailed process on how implement product-led framework to your SaaS. The nitty-gritty details and examples are priceless.
Best book on SaaS!! Best book on driving a product-led GTM
EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED. Wes distilled a lot of disparate concepts into one strategy. I work at a traditional B2B company and have been tasked to see how we can grow our company - I am excited to use Wes' strategies!
