Forget the Funnel

Georgiana Laudi and Claire Suellentrop

Your product is great. So why is marketing it so hard?

Many SaaS companies struggle with marketing. Teams try everything they can to drive more traffic, leads, and signups. Yet revenue growth remains…lumpy. Slow. Frustratingly inconsistent.

If this sounds familiar, the problem isn’t you or your ideas; it’s that you’re guessing at what resonates with your target customers. In Forget the FunnelGeorgiana Laudi and Claire Suellentrop share the Customer-Led Growth Framework they’ve developed to help companies of all sizes solve their product marketing struggles and hit ambitious targets. This framework helps you get inside your customers’ heads, map and measure your customers’ experience, and uncover which tactics will actually move the needle for your company.

It’s time to stop guessing. Forget the Funnel is your guide for thinking more strategically about marketing your product and making a meaningful impact on revenue growth.

Taking a customer-focused approach to growth sounds like common sense, but there aren't many resources that actually unpack the process of how to do it. Forget The Funnel gives leaders a practical, step-by-step guide to building an impactful growth strategy and connecting the dots between strategy and daily work. It also includes dozens of real-life case studies, examples, and concrete ideas you can move on in the same day. A very high ROI book.
