For SaaS startups, growth is essential.
According to a recent report, in the very early days (<$10k MRR), a SaaS startup grows on average by 4.4 percent every month. By the time the average SaaS startup reaches the $50k MRR mark, it grows by 3.1 percent every month. And over time, as the company reaches a sizable revenue, growth slows down to around 2 percent per month.
Without this kind of sustained growth, SaaS startups are likely to run out of runway. That’s why many startups turn to marketing for their growth needs. However, according to SaaS entrepreneur Jason Bennett, marketing is only one function of the growth equation.
“Growth is so much more than marketing. It’s about aligning the teams, aligning the tools, and having the data to enforce accountability,” Bennett says. “Over the years, I’ve just learned what it takes to unify teams and establish relationships internally and really know your customer, so you’re serving your perfect customer and keeping them exceptionally happy.”
On July 21, 2022, Bennett will be hosting a webinar for Founders Network members where he’ll provide insights on how to grow your SaaS startup.
In his webinar, Bennett will also cover:
- How to align data, people, and tools
- The key to creating exceptionally happy customers
- Why, and how, you should only focus on things that add value
- How to iterate fast
