Frequently Asked Questions

What is Yeti Distro?

Yeti Distro is a publication that analyzes the product and marketing strategies of tech companies, written by Alfred Lua, a product marketer at Buffer. Paying subscribers get (1) my private Weekly Notes on the things I'm working at Buffer and on the side, (2) Weekly Analyses of tech companies, and (3) full access to past essays.

Why should I pay $5 a month when most content is free?

Paying subscribers get insights that cannot be found elsewhere. Every Weekly Note is about things I'm working on or thinking about at Buffer. I have shared the thought process and numbers behind our bundle experiments, our product discovery process (plus a template), how I get customer insights, and more.

If your company provides a learning and development stipend, you could check if this qualifies under that.

Are there any essays I can check out before subscribing?

Sure! All Weekly Analyses of tech companies' strategies are available for free.

Can I cancel my subscription anytime?

Yes. When you are logged in, click on your profile image in the upper-right corner and select "Account". Then click on the "Cancel subscription" button. If you are up for it, send me an email and let me know I can improve Yeti Distro.
