Lincoln Murphy – Your Secret Weapon…

My name is Lincoln Murphy and I’m a…

SaaS Business Model & Marketing Pioneer

Since 2006 I’ve directly helped 300+ SaaS companies accelerate their growth by optimizing the Customer Lifecycle, from customer acquisition to retention. This is what I love to do.

Customer Acquisition & Content Marketing Ninja

From improving Distribution and Reach, to optimizing your Marketing website to drive sign-ups, and from streamlining the Free Trial process to drive paid conversions, to reducing overall Sales Cycles (self-service or high-touch), and from the top of the Sales Funnel all the way down, helping you acquire more customers in a scalable way is my passion.

Growth Hacker

I help SaaS companies grow – rapidly & sustainably – by taking full advantage of the SaaS Business Model and the unique distribution methods this amazing model allows. From in-app Conversion Optimization, to viral expansion in the most staid B2B product categories, there’s finally a term that encapsulates what I do.

Customer Success & Churn Reduction Thought Leader

A growth engine that doesn’t take into consideration Customer Success, retention, churn mitigation, and expansion revenue in addition to Acquisition-based growth… is not an efficient growth engine. I can help you build an efficient engine of growth

SaaS Business & Revenue Model Consultant

In 2009 I published the definitive report on the revenue models available with the SaaS Business Architecture called “The Seven SaaS Revenue Streams.” I was the first to enumerate the seven streams: Subscriptions (Recurring), Products, Ecosystem, Services, Ancillary, Advertising, and Network Effect. Since then, I’ve helped hundreds of SaaS startups and Enterprise Software companies moving to SaaS take full advantage of the SaaS business model.
