Product-led growth (PLG) is supposed to enable the product to sell itself, so there’s really less of a need for sales and marketing, right? Wrong.
Though the product itself does a lot of the heavy lifting when guiding the user to discover value without human guidance, product positioning and messaging becomes incredibly important throughout the user’s journey. It’s at its most valuable when users have discovered a product and are deciding whether or not they should sign up and give it a shot.
Kyle Poyar provides his 2 cents on PLG and examples of how branding is relevant for your product to grow.
Matt Gray provides actionable insights into how he grew 140,000 followers on LinkedIn & Twitter in 3 months. This is a great example of content creation as a tool to speed up growth rather than holding you back.

The Rossiter-Perry framework is useful to understand your target audience, brand sentiment, and advertising campaigns. Each quadrant has an involvement & emotion as factors for your customers. You have to understand which quadrant your product is in and plan a campaign.
Keeping the examples in mind, this is how each quadrant works:
High Involvement & Informational:
Your product is of high importance, highly-priced & consumers need plenty of information to make a purchasing decision. Consumers also look at pricing & functionality before buying.
Campaign Strategy → Long form copies published in magazines, newspapers & online platforms to convey the information in dept.
High Involvement & Transformational:
Your product requires emotional decision-making. These products are psychologically fulfilling and consumers usually aren’t rational but want to be part of something like societal status or satisfaction.
Campaign Strategy → You have to be dramatic, have fancy pictures, and create high exposure of colors in images and copies.
Low Involvement & Informational:
Products here require rationality. The consumer needs a reason to buy your product. Here long ads or copies aren’t required since consumers don’t need much information to buy.
Campaign Strategy: The creative has to focus on reminders, generate and reinforce brand loyalty for repeat buys. Coupons, messages, or sale promotions should help.
Low Involvement & Transformational:
Your product has low involvement but a high emotional value. Impulse or convenience buying is consumers’ go-to action here. The “feel good” factor is important.
Campaign Strategy → Advertising with images of consumer satisfaction is pivotal. Point of Sales, billboards, digital and traditional ad boards with a quick CTA leading to a “feel good” factor are necessary.
The framework will help you convey information to your audience and consider the way consumers process that information for your product.
