About Ramli John

About

Ramli John

Hi there! My name is Ramli. That’s pronounced RAM-LEE, which rhymes with “valley.” I’m a Toronto-based product growth marketer. I help product-led businesses convert more of their free users into lifelong customers.
I’m a BMath (University of Waterloo) and MBA (Ivey School of Business) grad. After my undergrad, I worked with Java, Pyton and COBOL as a Marketing Systems Analysts at PepsiCo, where I developed high-profile analytics tools for the marketing team. After my MBA, I founded several startups and worked as the head of marketing for tech companies in Toronto, San Francisco and New York.
I’m a growth marketing consultant and educator. I help product-led companies convert more of their free users into lifelong customers. I’m the author of the best-selling book Product-Led Onboarding: How to Turn Users into Lifelong Customers.
When I’m not analyzing quantative and qualitative data to identify and prioritize growth opportunities for product-led companies, you can find me sipping locally roasted black coffee or brewed craft beer, filming and editing videos for YouTube, or purchasing a new snapback hat for his collection.
I also love helping other entrepreneurs and marketers. You can contact me, send me a short note to hello [at] ramlijohn.com or Tweet at @RamliJohn. Come say hi :).
