What to Look for in Prospective Hires

Finding the perfect hire can seem like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

It’s easy to fall under the trap of assuming the most qualified candidate is your best option. However, attitude is actually the best indicator of new hire success. Asking questions while interviewing candidates will allow you to uncover the type of person they are, what motivates them, and character traits that make them unique.

Easy access to global markets, the emergence of new technologies, and low operating costs have resulted in the number of small fast-growing companies being higher than ever before. Because of this influx, the need for adequate funding is crucial to fueling this growth and innovation.

There’s a simple question every founder of a SaaS company should ask when looking at their sales and marketing efforts. Is a customer worth more than what it costs to sell to them? The LTV:CAC ratio is a tool to measure the efficiency of the crucial part of the business: the sales and marketing funnel.

The LTV:CAC ratio measures the relationship between the lifetime value of a customer and the cost of acquiring that customer. It is a particularly crucial metric for SaaS companies. The ratio is divided into two components: customer lifetime value and customer acquisition cost.
