Mr. Ramesh’s Inspiration Behind Starting lessburn
After completing his tenure as the Director of Data Operations and Marketing Support at a leading business information company, with a leading team of more than 90 researchers, Mr. Ramesh decided to launch lessburn. His idea was to help budding businesses with Digital marketing services, and SaaS businesses with Growth Hacking, Marketing Automation and User Acquisition strategies.
Mr. Ramesh felt that most of such SaaS based start-up owners were hardcore Techies having little to no knowledge about real marketing strategies, which is why offering such services to such start-ups would be helpful. “The inception of lessburn was a boon for many businesses then to evolve their marketing strategies with a creative plan proposed by lessburn to supercharge their sales funnel.” He added.
lessburn’s Challenges As A Growth Consulting Firm
When asked about the initial challenges faced by lessburn, Mr. Ramesh said “To go an extra mile in the industry, initially we worked on stabilizing our Unique Selling Proposition to differentiate us from our competitors. We made it by offering various Digital Marketing services under one-roof. The fact that we surprise our clients with what all we can do makes us outstanding.”
Mr. Ramesh started the company single-handedly, from zero. He dedicated his time and energy in finding like-minded team members whom he could travel with for the next few years. “It’s been three years since inception, still we have zero employee churn-rate. Since we value each one’s skills and knowledge, lessburn provides the platform to implement everyone’s idea to build a better plan.” He added.
Today, with a team of over 60 members and an annual turnover of almost Rs. 2 crores, Mr. Ramesh feels that the growth of lessburn has been an organic one. The company is very particular about their team and the overall growth of each member. He says, “Every member of our team has undergone a brilliant evolution after beginning their journey with lessburn. That is what matters the most, is it not?”
Mr. Ramesh truly believes that lessburn’s success should be credited to the sheer talent and creativity of its team and the relationship that the brand has maintained with its clients.

Mr. Ramesh feels that in today’s day and age, it is quite difficult to grab the customer’s attention, however, its easier to gain their trust by delivering results that exceed their expectations. That’s why the company follows the slogan “You Grow, We Grow”.
“We don’t aim to acquire more clients, but take pride in serving the limited one to give full concentration on a leveraging particular brand. At the same time, we don’t work with clients from the same industry to prevent conflict of interests. With carefully structuring the promotional calendar right from the plan to execution, we do it with due diligence to meet the requirements.” He stated.
