Building awareness about your product begins by engaging users through your product. That includes asking your customers to leave reviews and share referrals to help build more awareness. And one of the best ways to engage new users is by finding ways to get them using the product through free trials and to let the product itself drive conversions. The ultimate goal, of course, is to find ways to hook your users by making them the center of the product experience. Learn about product-led strategies, like freemium and conversion, to drive growth.
