Product-led growth is often presented as the silver bullet to hyper growth. But in reality, many PLG success stories have leveraged traditional inside sales motions alongside self-service to speed up customer acquisition across segments. This model is called product-led sales, and with a panel of experts, we’re going to discuss what it really looks like in practice and when B2B SaaS leaders should start baking it into their go-to-market.
