How Gorgias Used Buy-Out Deals to Scale

What do Gorgias and Zoom have in common?

They both used buy-out deals to get new customers. Here’s how it worked; if you’re locked into a contract with a competitor for another six months, they’d offer an 18-month contract for the price of 12.

Buy-out deals are an aggressive customer acquisition strategy.
