“You are what you don’t automate.” Marc Lehmann (Tweet this)
So I loved this interview with Saasu’s CEO, founder and contrarian Marc Lehmann. For over a decade, Saasu has consciously challenged industry trends and norms to stay customer focussed. Aside from a ton of really great business and marketing advice, Marc also shares how his philosophies of minimalism and taking an artisan approach have helped him create a highly automated, scalable business.
- How Marc’s job as a trader gave him the idea to start Saasu.
- Why he has always deeply respected business owners and the challenges they face.
- He founded Saasu, an online accounting software business, out of his love for software and found a solution for accounting problems for business owners.
- Why he chose to invest in the depths of the dot com bust.
- How Marc keeps his team small as they maximize the use of automation.
- Saasu’s marketing philosophy through networks, quality content and letting their customers market for them.
- How they target specific groups of people instead of all people in their marketing.
- Why having a good relationship with your customers is important especially if they are included in a big network of potential customers.
- Why they market less often but with super high quality content.
- How Saasu uses partnering marketing.
- Why they only choose the partners that are client centric.
