Season 3 of the ProducTea: We spill the tea on how to Go to Market through Product-led Sales and Product-led Growth in B2B and the realities of senior leadership.
This episode is very difficult to summarize, we touch on highly tactical methods on how to combine offline and online methods to drive communities. Why they are key to breaking into difficult markets and how Lobo did it in detail.
The first half of the podcast is an inspiring origin story from Lobo from the slums he came from to the incredibly successful community expert, author, and 0 to-1 genius who almost lost everything because he couldn’t balance business with his family.
In the 2nd half, we talk about highly tactical methods on how to combine offline and online to light a growth fire that goes out of control.
It’s an absolute masterclass of how to understand community-led acquisition and why your love and relentless understanding of the customer’s problems will beat any other framework.
