A) Top of the funnel — the various mechanisms where you can drive traffic and conversions to your product (SEO, Paid Acquisition, SEM, Social, etc)
B) Magic Moment — the one compelling experience that creates an initial emotional response that your customers or users first experience when using your product.
C) Core Product Value — the problem your product is solving for its customers — Is it important to the customer and is there a sizeable market behind this problem?
The goal should be to understand your growth model and your levers of growth before jumping into tactics.
Most growth professionals come into a new company and start working on A) the top of the funnel right away. The problem with this is if you don’t really understand B) and C) then you are fundamentally adding people into a leaky bucket.
Wrong assumptions kill more companies than bad products.
Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.
Value proposition is the magic fit between what you make and why people buy it.
Ideas are easy. Implementation is hard.
A ‘startup’ is a company that is confused about: 1) What its product is. 2) Who its customers are. 3) How to make money.
