Dear business owner with growing pains,
If you answered, "Not as well as I'd like..." it's okay, you're not alone. We've helped over a hundred business owners overcome the same struggles.
When you first started, your company only had a few people. Today, you're 30, 40, 50 strong.
You don't all rub shoulders anymore, and it's getting harder to stay current on how everyone feels about the company.
You realize that you don't know the name of your employee's spouse. (How did that happen?) You’re caught off-guard when one of your employees, who you thought was happy, decides to leave.
You don’t know your company as well as you used to. As your responsibilities grow and your time seems to shrink, you know it will only get worse.
I'm Claire Lew, the CEO of Know Your Company. If you've been nodding your head while reading this, I’m glad to share our tool with you.
Know Your Company helps you learn something new and important about your company every week.
We help you achieve three outcomes:
Know Your Company is more than a piece of software, more than a business – it's a way to help people communicate openly and honestly at work.
We're rooted in a few core beliefs:
Our software was originally built by Basecamp (formerly 37signals), the company who makes the world's most popular product management tool.
Since then, more than 5,000 people at companies like Airbnb, Kickstarter, Medium, Happy Cog and TechStars use Know Your Company every week. Check out what some of them have to say about using our product.
These companies have uncovered insights that lead to real changes in their day-to-day operations. They've made changes to hiring, recruiting, on-boarding, meetings, benefits, performance reviews, development priorities, and customer service...all because of Know Your Company.
Before using Know Your Company, there are a few requirements to make sure it's a good fit:
If this sounds like you, and you want to get to know your company better, send me an email at email@example.com and I'll give you a personal tour of the product. If you’re in Chicago, we can do it in person. Or we can do it via Skype, iChat, WebEx, GoTo Meeting, or whatever works for you.
If you like what you see, we'll set everything up for you right away. The insights will flow week after week. Months from now, you’ll know more about your company than ever before.
If it doesn’t work for you, you can have all your money back. I don't want to keep your money if you aren’t getting to know your company better.
So let’s get started. Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell me your story, your struggles, your managerial growing pains. And I’ll show you how Know Your Company can help.
I’m looking forward to helping you get to know your company again.
CEO of Know Your Company
