Announcing our first cohort of Product-Led Sales Ambassadors

Today, we’re celebrating another exciting milestone for the Product-Led Sales (PLS) Community, introducing our inaugural cohort of PLS Community Ambassadors!

It was only a year ago when we started this community with a 20-person slack group and PLS was just an idea. 

To now… 

  • The community is over 1400+ members strong with over 30% of members actively engaging every week.
  • Product-Led Sales has been established as a category with roles cropping up for Head of PLS at some of the most well-known PLG brands. 
  • Last month we celebrated one year since we started building the PLS community with our very first in-person community event. 

It’s amazing to see firsthand how the community continues to evolve organically. 

I am excited about this next evolution for the community. Category creation can’t be done alone and for Pocus, there have been members of the community who have been helping behind the scenes for many months. We wanted to formally recognize these unsung heroes of the Product-Led Sales movement, who have been sharing their frameworks, advice, and facilitating the necessary work to establish PLS best practices with us.  

Introducing the very first PLS Community Ambassador cohort

The Product-Led Sales Community Ambassador program highlights thought leaders who have gone above and beyond to share their expertise, have helped to create a respectful and fun learning environment, and represent the core values of the PLS community. 

The ambassador program is by invitation only and our first cohort of ambassadors was carefully selected for their unique perspectives and thought leadership in the space. 

Let’s meet the ambassadors…

Membership in the program is by invitation only. We carefully selected each and every ambassador for this inaugural cohort because they each provide a unique perspective and have demonstrated thought leadership in Product-Led Sales. To be considered for an ambassador role you must be a member of the community, frequently contribute high quality content in Slack or during meetups, and above all you contribute respectfully with kindness for fellow community members.

If you’re thinking about Product-Led Sales or just want to be more data-driven in your GTM motion, we want to hear from you. Join our growing community by requesting an invite here.
