FEBRUARY 2017
Successfully Upselling SaaS Products    
,

Welcome to the February Cirrostratus Group Newsletter.

SaaS providers who are successful at up-selling have lower selling costs  for those up-sells and higher growth rates. Below is the third in the series of blog posts I'm writing about how to successfully upsell SaaS products.

David Skok gave a presentation at the 2017 SaaStr Annual conference on the 12 key levers of SaaS success. It's definitely worth reviewing the content listed below.

This month I've included links to several Magic Quadrant reports that Gartner has recently published on a variety of software products.

I'm always interested in hearing about your plans for developing and offering cloud applications.
