Wondering how often people lie about their actual role on these onboarding forms. I used to have Product Owner in my title on linkedin for a short while and I had to remove it as the number of cold outreach from companies doubled and just did not want to deal with it. While trying out new tools, usually I am not giving my real role.

Now working on my own SaaS onboarding strategy and need some trial and error to figure what works best for our audience.

Thoroughly enjoyed this post!

It is really amazing what Notion has built in relatively short time. I really love that app!

And as an advertiser, I can agree that 3rd party data platforms usually aren't that great. Especially when it comes to estimating size and revenue.

of 3rd party data for <1000 employees isn't accurate 70%! That's 🥜

Next time could you please include one of your clever memes?

I can definitely see one fitting here about reinventing the wheel 😎

Agree with all except perhaps the Slack example, because of the nature of the product. If Slack has a 80% acceptance rate, my hypothesis is it has to do with the the invitee being invited by someone known (eg: IT admin at their workplace) or wanting to join a group discussing a topic of interest, and not so much how well the invite is designed/structured.
