Trend Highlight – The Rapid Rise of ClickUp
In the crowded space of project management software, it's surprising to see a rapidly growing startup that has raised relatively little money and, most surprisingly, has spent practically $0 on paid marketing.
ClickUp's retention numbers are healthy too, with around 70% of the site's traffic accounted for by users logging into the tool.
The lifetime value for these tools is high given that once an influential employee or team starts using the product, the product spreads within the organization. And the more it spreads, the harder it is to switch, as employees spend time learning and much of the organization's work becomes closely tied to the software. As a result, the industry is in a race for customer acquisition. Companies like Asana, Monday, and Smartsheet spend as much as $15 for CPC search ads on phrases like "free project management software".
Competing against these companies, ClickUp has grown to over 50,000 teams purely organically. The company emphasizes that a large portion of signups are referrals.
In the first six months of 2019, ClickUp's site traffic more than doubled to 3M.
