In their first year, cloudHQ managed to get over 65,000 users. Today, they’re closing in on a million. At present, they add around 8,400 new users per week. What accounts for these impressive numbers? Among growth hacking examples, what makes it stand out? According to co-founder Naomi Assaraf, it’s all about their product strategy. cloudHQ builds and releases 2 to 4 new products a month — nearly all using a freemium model.

    I think as marketers we sometimes forget the value in just having products people really love - especially with a freemium model. I've been using several of cloudHQ's Chrome extensions for a while now and have found them both super-simple and extremely effective.

      Haha I hope you do. You're probably the only one I know that has the team and resources to pull it off.

    I am legitimately curious if anyone else has done something similar in terms of launching a multitide of small free apps or extensions as a growth strategy.

    I recently started using some of cloudHQ's Chrome extensions and can attest to how effective their strategy is.

    You start with something like automatic archiving to Google Drive, then see all the other extensions and end up with an armful.

    Great to hear this is working so well for them!
