Yellow Messenger is LinkedIn's Top Startups to work for in 2020!
When the going gets tough, the tough get going. The 2020 LinkedIn Top Startups list reveals 10 young companies that have remained resilient during a tumultuous time. And we're honored to have found ourselves on that list.
Ever since the outbreak of the global pandemic caused by Covid-19, there’s been a lot of developments at Yellow Messenger, which have been trying, testing, and most of all, character-building, for all of us.
Here is a sneak-peak of what made us resilient and one of the most sought after places to work at, against all odds.
#1 Amplify the hustle
There are two kinds of people in the world. Those who talk about their dreams, and those who actually go out and pursue them. Just talking about it won't get you far - you have to hustle to push yourself forward. Covid-19 gave us the opportunity to talk less, hustle harder. Lesser meetings, more work. We're going to keep things this way.
#2 Always be finding the solutions
As a startup, you'll undoubtedly face different problems. What's important is, instead of dwelling on the problem, get everybody on board with looking towards the solution. And boy, there were challenges in remote marketing, selling, delivery, service and development. But like they say, whatever the problem, be a part of the solution.
#3 Customer first always
You can preoccupy yourself with numbers and figures, but when it comes down to it, the real value is in something that nobody can take away from you — incredible service. This year, we added 4X the customers we had in the last 4 years. Our old customers expanded the scope of chatbots overnight and new customers came raining. We're blessed to have managed the fort on sales and delivery.
What makes us 1 in 10?
