โ˜๏ธ Opportunities

๐Ÿ”‘ Key Lessons

  • Build a value ladder. With a free product and others that gradually increase in price. Have an offer for each stage of the buyer’s journey.
  • Understand expected returns. Costly gestures, like custom videos, may be worth the investment with low close rates. Due to high LTVs.

๐Ÿ˜  Haters

“Growth tools also have platform risk.”
Most growth tools depend on Google to be found. Newsletters depend on Gmail. Perfect is a myth but better isn’t. Are paid leads less risky? No.

“You forgot about events.”
Events are great for relationship building. But contributions don’t scale without artifacts like video. In online communities, one answer can help thousands.
