Biggest takeaway – “What am i building?” Agency or productized service? Does it matter? Laying out my products as named things has really helped me in conversations about what we do and I think an exercise everyone should go through.
Didn’t get case studies together. Probably going to work on that this weekend.
- Revenue at $7,752. Did get a new customer while I was away
- Ideal customer profile is done!
- What I learned at MicroConf:
- Joana Weibe’s presentation was very actionable. One of her big takeaways was not to just change the headline, but to also change the CTA button. Headlines aren’t everything. Another thing was when you change your CTA buttons you want to make sure they don’t insinuate that there’s more work for the user to do. So I have some work to do there.
- Samuel Huellick of UserOnboard.com talked about starting your design where your users start using. This, along with my workshop with Hiten Shah where we really dove into user stories was pretty helpful. We took post it notes and plotted every single thing we did in the morning before we started working. We laid it out in front of us in a single row. It was pretty interesting how many things you forget or don’t think about and the same thing applies inside your product.
- Rob’s talk where he discussed some of Drip’s post launch challenges were helpful to hear. He broke things down into three phases which was build, learn, and scale. When Drip launched, revenue dipped for a few months while they learned from their users. I am going through that phase now with LeadFuze as I talked about last week, so it was helpful to see that this is the norm.
- Came back and got caught up on emails all day Thursday
