    12. 12. 8 Startup Lessons from Constant Contact<br />With more than 350,000 customers, Constant Contact is a publicly traded company (Nasdaq: CTCT) <br />If an investor tells you that you can’t build a real business on $20/month, direct them to Constant Contact<br /> SAAS (Software as a Service) startups need to focus on getting on past what Gail calls the slow ramp of death<br /> The trick is to give experiments enough time to prove themselves.<br /> Get a CEO peer group to bounce ideas off of as soon as possible<br /> If your product is strong enough, people do not need to be sold.<br /> There are no silver bullets, just many “A-ha” moments.<br /> A startup CEO’s only important job is what Gail calls searching for the model<br /> Raising money from institutional investors is all about working the entire partnership, not just your single partner.<br />12<br />
