You a fan of Tristan’s work? Me too. Most content on Lean Startups and innovation out there sucks… But Tristan’s writing is always honest, realistic, and genuinely helpful. I’m a fan.
All this to say… I like you already :-) - and I look forward to learning more about what you're doing.

Hi, I'm Kevin Dewalt. Like you, I run a subscription SAAS app and I have a question for you:
Have you heard of concierge onboarding? Are you doing it to onboard new customers for your SAAS app?
If not, I have some bad news - and some GREAT news.
First the bad news. You're ... losing ... money! Concierge onboarding can double your conversion to paid subscribers. It prevents churn. It helps you optimize your onboarding and teach what your customers want.
Now for the GREAT news. I'm going to show you how to do it based on the best practices we've developed and what we've learned from successful, fast-growing companies.
Ready? Let's make more $ with your SAAS product!
You know those crappy email courses that fill up your inbox? That promise the world and blame YOU when it doesn’t work?
If so ... you’ll be surprised when:
I know because every day entrepreneurs in my email courses tell me these things.
For instance, here’s what Shaun sent me on the last day of a course...
Or see what Roger's said...
I'm going to get you on track for increasing your MRR. Over just 10 emails you'll learn
Concierge onboarding is most effective when your product is complex, new, or requires a change in customer behaviors.

Good question. And truthfully ... talking about "concierge" onboarding is kind of weird.
For the last 60 years technology companies sold products by implementing solutions through dedicated sales and support teams.
(Picture a small army of IBM employees dressed like Dilbert...)
Nobody talked about "concierge" onboarding because all B2B selling was done in a partnership with customers.
In the last 10 years that has started to change as SaaS products began winning the market. Suddenly customers can buy our products online with just a credit-card.
"Growth hacking", analytics, conversions, funnel, and UI have suddenly become the rage. Taken to an extreme, many SaaS founders assume that SaaS products will sell themselves.
As you've no doubt discovered ... your product won't sell itself.
(a little louder now ... in case you're skimming this)
In the real world, customers don't know what they want. Or understand their problems. And they're not ready to make behavior changes.
These barriers have little to do with your product - and yet you're losing customers because of them.
It's actually easier to overcome them by getting your (qualified) trial customers on a phone call. This process is called "concierge" onboarding.
But ... but ... how do you ... ?
That's what we'll cover in the course.

I know you’re skeptical - and I’m glad. Because I don’t have some magical elixir to win make you more money. But I do have a process I can teach you that entrepreneurs like me are using.
Do you want to convert more trial customers? Learn about the obstacles in your onboarding? Win their love so they won't defect to competitors?
If so, why not give me a chance to help you?Ok, Kevin.
