02:04:59
You've figured out your value prop, you've got a great product under development. Now what? How can you develop a roadmap to build a company? VCs often qualify deals as being a "feature" a "product" or a "company." Which do you have and how will you get where you want to go? During this session we'll discuss how to think about designing your product as a foundational element of your business. Think beyond UX and Architecture to Whole Product, Ecosystems, and Strategic partners. Formulate how to design your go to market strategy and business model into your product with a modular architecture, distinctive packaging and a frictionless approach.

How To Validate Your Startup Ideas | Dan Martell

Have you really validated the need for your product before building it? Do you know how to pre-sell your product before it's made? In this video, I share my best strategies for validating your startup ideas. Are you an entrepreneur?

It’s because both the product AND the market are unknown. They need to be figured out... ... for a sushi restaurant you just need to know if people in your city eat sushi - which most do. So the risk is only in building a great restaurant experience... the market & “product” are proven. With tech, it comes down iterating and testing both of these assumptions. 1. Will the product actually do what I think it will (technology / science / etc). 2. Will anyone want it? The cool part is both of these can be figured out fairly quickly if you do it right. One word of caution: It does NOT require an MVP (Minimum Viable Product). Actually, I have a huge problem with the term MVP because it has the word “product” in it. I have a much different (and far more cost+time efficient) approach that I cover in today’s video. It really comes down to a few simple frameworks that I’ve created to help you validate your ideas... and generate the confidence (and initial funding) you need to go all in. Here they are: 1. Idea: Problem, Pain, Passion 2. Validated Research 3. Clickable Prototype 4. Pre-Sales I’ve used this approach to build ALL of my companies and it doesn’t matter if it’s for a consumer application, or a solution for big Fortune 500 companies - it can be done. So before you pour your savings (and next 6 months) into building an “MVP”... … take 5 mins right now to watch today's video and make sure you’re setting yourself up for success right out of the gates.

MVP: Quickly Validate your Start-Up
 
11:09
Whether you're creating a mobile app or a cat food delivery business, it's often helpful to start with a Minimum Viable Product. With an MVP, you'll spend more time building the things that matter, and be able to quickly test your assumptions--and the market. But how do you decide what stays and what goes? Will Dayble, director of web development company Squareweave, takes us through the process of creating an MVP.

How To Build a Software Company With No Money | Dan Martell
 
11:09
Thinking about hiring your first developer? Don’t rush into it. First, make sure you’re not building a product nobody wants. In this video, I teach how to test your software idea without writing any code whatsoever. Are you an entrepreneur? Get free weekly video training here: http://www.danmartell.com/newsletter + Join me on FB: http://FB.com/DanMartell + Connect w/ me live: http://periscope.tv/danmartell + Tweet me: http://twitter.com/danmartell + Instagram awesomeness: http://instagram.com/danmartell - Technology adoption lifecycle: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technology_adoption_life_cycle - Tools for prototyping your software: balsamiq.com, uxpin.com, invisionapp.com Can you build a thriving software business without writing code? Can you generate real revenues without having anything built? The answer is yes, and I personally believe that it’s the only way to do it. A couple weeks ago I was in San Francisco hosting my Sales Pipeline Intensive event for my SaaS Academy clients, and one of the speakers John (founder of five9.com, $1.2B saas company) echoed a similar sentiment... It was funny because we hadn’t connected prior to his talk. So I did some research on his latest company JetBridge.com, and it mentioned all the different areas they were innovating sales using AI/Machine Learning, and when he comes up, he just smiled and said “oh, all that’s bullshit” ???? It was all made up. :) Well, in his defense, at this point they did have a product in the outbound calling space that did have revenues and customers, but the rest was just positioning... .. to allow them to get customers and learn fast. And that’s what I want to teach you today as you continue on your journey building a software company (or any business for that matter). You don’t need to have it built before you sell it. And even better, if you don’t, I’ll show you a way you can get your future customers to finance its development... Watch this week’s video to learn the exact same structure that one of my coaching clients Ryan used to generate $200K for his first prototype that he pre-sold. When you build innovation there’s a few things you need to understand... one of the first is you can’t sell it to big, old, slow moving companies. You need to find innovative and early adopting companies... ... so I share a framework to make this easy called the Technology Adoption Curve. Also, once you have the idea, most founders will build it first then show it to customers. But what I recommend instead is to build a Clickable Prototype, design a Customer Advisory Board and then co-create it with them. Finally, if you want to ensure you get real commitment from your customers, then you’ll need to get them to throw down with some money. True “Customer Validation” doesn’t occur until there’s some kind of financial commitment made... ... without it, it’s just a bunch of nice people grin [email protected]*ng you. It’s the kiss of death for a startup founder. Have you ever tested an idea for your startup? What creative ways - like my buddy John - did you use to test your idea? Leave a comment below and let me know. I share a few others in my video from my previous startups Flowtown & Clarity as well. Can’t wait to read yours. Till next week.

The Art of Early Stage Product Validation

Alice shares how to validate a very early stage idea; how to make sure you're not kidding yourself that people want what you're building, and how to build something people want. Alice Bentinck is the cofounder of Entrepreneur First (EF), an early stage seed investment program that invests in Europe's most talented technical graduates. Over the last two years, EF has built 20 startups, now valued at more than $80m, with investors including Y Combinator, Index Ventures and Notion Capital. Unlike accelerators, EF doesn't require you to have a team or an idea before you join - they are experts in the very earliest days of a startup, the days when you're going from a lone individual to 200 days later having a team, a product and some early traction.

Making sense of MVP (Minimum Viable Product)
 
11:47
Adapted from Crisp's blog by Henrik Kniberg. Explaining his MVP drawing. This drawing shows up all over the place, in articles and presentations, even in a book (Jeff Patton’s “User Story Mapping” – an excellent read by the way). Many tell me the drawing really captures the essence of iterative & incremental development, lean startup, MVP (minimum viable product), and what not. However, some misinterpret it, which is quite natural when you take a picture out of it’s original context. Some criticize it for oversimplifying things, which is true. The picture is a metaphor. Find the original article here: http://blog.crisp.se/2016/01/25/henrikkniberg/making-sense-of-mvp Video by The CRM Team.

3 Awesome Minimum Viable Products (MVPs)

Before diving in. let's establish some ground rules for a "proper" MVP It's got to be Minimal It's got to be Viable And it's got to be a Prod... Actually No, it does not need to be a Product. (I'll be showing you a great example of a "non-product" in a minute or two.) Some have argued that the word "Product" in MVP is unhelpful. Steven Cohn has made a strong case for the word "Experiment". I agree. But for now let's stick with the "P" and temporarily re-define it to.... Pre-meditated. Meaning that the MVP must be a deliberate attempt to learn about the market. This rules out cases that look like MVPs in retrospect, but were really full products that - to everyone's surprise - developed into something big. Let's get going. No. 3 - Buffer ------ Buffer is a application that makes it easy to share content on social media. Here's what they put on the their site. A test, certainly. But it falls short of an MVP in my opinion. Their next test was better. They slotted this page in-between the other two pages. Now visitors to the website are not just saying "This is interesting" They're saying "I want to BUY this". Okay, there's nowhere to input your credit card details. But anyone who got this far was at least prepared to think about parting with their money. As co-founder Joel Gascoigne said: "After this result, I didn’t hesitate to start building the first minimal version of the real, functioning product." Minimal - certainly Viable - yes Pre-mediated - check Buffer's current valuation is something close to $400 million No. 2 - Dropbox ---- Dropbox, as I'm sure you know, is a file synchronisation service. Edit a file on your desktop... ... and seconds later its updated on all of your other devices. Rewind to the early days. The team - entirely composed of techies - had the basic synchronisation working. That was the easy bit. The hard bit was going to be to achieve the same trick on pretty well every platform: Mac, Windows, iPhone, etc. Given that the team was all techies, you'd have put money on them diving straight in. But CEO Drew Houston did something surprising. He made a video. The video - just three minutes long - demonstrated the synch process end to end. But it was more than just a demo: it was full of techie in-jokes... designed to appeal to early adopters. It worked like a charm In Drew's words: “It drove hundreds of thousands of people to the website. Our beta waiting list went from 5,000 people to 75,000 people literally overnight. It totally blew us away.” Minimal - Yes Viable - Not a product that could be used, but a product that could be demonstrated. Pre-Meditated - Yes Dropbox went on to do quite well. It's current value stands between $5 and $10 BILLION. No. 1 - Zappos ---- It's 1999. Co-founder Nick Swinmurn wanted to build an online store for shoes. But would people use it Here's how he went about finding out. He popped down to lis local shoe shops he went into the shops and... ... I sh!t you not... he PHOTOGRAPHED PAIRS OF SHOES! The photos were uploaded to a super-simple website. If someone clicked on the button to buy a pair Nick would pop down to the store and... BUY THE SHOES! Zero infrastructure. Zero inventory. Minimal - definitely Viable - This time it's not even up for discussion. Most definitely: real customers; real money changing hands; real shoes! Pre-meditated Check. Zappos went on to do quite well: it was acquired by Amazon in 2009 for a cool $1.2 billion. Your thoughts, please! ---- Buffer, Dropbox and Zappos. Three of my favourite MVPs. What do you think of my choices Any you disagree with Let me know in the comments. And I'd also like to he https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPJoq_QVsY4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjCCS3DxZRo

The Lean Startup - 5 Keys to a Successful Minimum Viable Product Launch

A month ago I launched a new product - a new Minimum Viable Product. I learned a lot: here are the 5 things you need to know. Grab your FREE Cheat Sheet: http://bit.ly/lean-startup-cheatsheet In today's video, five keys to a successful Minimum Viable Product Launch: - 1. Launch before _____ _____ - 2. There are more ______ _____ than you think - 3. Launch to a _______ _______ - 4. Be ready to make _______ ______ - 5. Remember that it’s an ________ → SUBSCRIBE for a NEW EPISODE every WEDNESDAY: http://www.DevelopmentThatPays.com/-/subscribe ------------------- 108. The Lean Startup - 5 Keys to a Successful Minimum Viable Product Launch So you’re planning to launch a product A Minimum Viable Product Excellent. A New Course ------- Just over a month ago, our adventure into Lean - that’s “Lean” as in “The Lean Startup” - reached an interesting stage. I launched a product. A Minimum Viable Product. The “Course of Some Kind” crystalised into “Scrum vs Kanban - the Mini-course”. Here are FIVE things that I learned along the way: 1: Launch before you’re ready ----- Are you the kind of person that hears "Done Is Better Than Perfect" or “Shipping beats perfection” and thinks: “Really Are you sure ” If so, you’re in good company. “Hello. My name is Gary. I’m perfectionist.” October was hell for me. My task was take existing material and to repurpose it into a mini-course. That doesn’t sound like a recipe for torment. But the more I worked on the course, the less I liked it. I wanted to rip it up and start again. If this sounds like you, then take a note from Reid Hoffman, founder of LinkedIn "If You're Not Embarrassed By The First Version Of Your Product, You’ve Launched Too Late" So pick and date. And launch. Before you’re ready. Bonus Tip: Set things up so that the date can’t be moved. I wrote the launch into an episode of Development that Pays. At that point, I was committed! 2: Remember that there are more moving parts than you think. ---- Your focus will the on the product. That’s only natural. But a product won’t launch itself. You’re going to need plumbing. I had my three videos. I also had an email service capable of sending time-delayed emails. Three videos. Three emails. Simples. But it’s probably not a great idea to send people direct to the video: each should be on its own page... And I’m going to need a form - so that people can sign up... And the form is going to need page to “live on”... And…. I think you get the message :) 3: Launch to a limited audience ---- Although it’s important to launch before you’re ready, you don’t have to be damn fool about it; not everyone has to see your “warts and all” version. So launch… but make it a soft launch. Wikipedia defines a soft launch as “a preview release of a product or service to a limited audience prior to the general public”. In the case of the “Scrum vs Kanban the Mini Course”, I “hid” the announcement in a “regular” Development That Pays episode: only people that watched one particular episode all the way to the 4 and half minute mark got the link. 4 - Be ready to make running repairs ----- Launch day rolls around. You push the Big Green Button, and breath a sigh of relief. But don’t relax too much! To paraphrase Mickey Rouke’s character in Body Heat: “You got fifty ways you're gonna * up. If you think of twenty-five of them, then you're a genius... and you ain't no genius.” Well you may be you are a genius. I am not. A genius would not have…. wasn’t expecting to told that one of my videos had TWO audio tracks. - A genius would not have I wasn’t expecting requests for the second lesson on day one. So expect things to go wrong… and be at the ready to make running repairs. 5 - Remember that it’s an experiment ---- It bares repeating: Remember that it’s an Experiment*. This one cuts two ways: It’s a reminder not to over-egg the pudding. This is a Minimum Viable Product, not a Final Perfect Product. It’s also a reminder to measure. Your Minimum Viable Product is part of the Build Measure Learn loop. And if you don’t measure, you won’t learn. Recap ---- In summary: Launch before you’re ready There are more moving parts that you think Launch to a limited audience Be ready to make running repairs Remember that it’s an experiment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ark3b6d5i6A&list=PLngnoZX8cAn_vCE1plk4xhTWfJfvKEWs8

And while there’s value in modelling the tactics and strategies that have fueled the rapid success of companies they look up to... There’s even MORE value in identifying the core, underlying principles that serve as the backbone for that success. Over the years, I’ve identified 5 core elements behind the perfect software business. I learned one of them directly from Jason Fried @ Basecamp.com when I visited Chicago to take his workshop over 10 years ago. Another from guys like Mike McDerment @ Freshbooks.com, and Ben Chesnut @ MailChimp.com, both early mentors of mine who inspired a lot of the work I create at Flowtown. In today's world you see companies like Slack.com, and Intercom.com (disclosure: I’m an investor) shooting for the moon and you wonder: “How did they do it?” That’s what I want to break down for you in this week’s video. Here are the 5 key elements that the world’s best startups all have in common: What I’ve learned is it really comes down to how the product is used by the companies, how they extract the value (i.e. get paid) and their position in the market... ... now, there are some nuances, and I go over them in the video, but I want to list them out real quick so that you can understand how impressive it is for a company to hit this level of growth: 1. Product Is Core to the Operation of the Business 2. Cost/Value Proposition is Straightforward 3. Finances Its Own Growth 4. Efficient Sales Model 5. Market Leadership If you’ve got tough decisions to make on your product to better address these elements and need my feedback, be sure to leave a comment with your question and some context, I would love to help. See you next Monday! Dan “business model nerd” Martell Don't forget to share this entrepreneurial advice with your friends, so they can learn too: https://youtu.be/lD917KgTUeY ===================== ABOUT DAN MARTELL ===================== “You can only keep what you give away.” That’s the mantra that’s shaped Dan Martell from a struggling 20-something business owner in the Canadian Maritimes (which is waaay out east) to a successful startup founder who’s raised more than $3 million in venture funding and exited not one... not two... but three tech businesses: Clarity.fm, Spheric and Flowtown. You can only keep what you give away. That philosophy has led Dan to invest in 33+ early stage startups such as Udemy, Intercom, Unbounce and Foodspotting. It’s also helped him shape the future of Hootsuite as an advisor to the social media tour de force. An activator, a tech geek, an adrenaline junkie and, yes, a romantic (ask his wife Renee), Dan has recently turned his attention to teaching startups a fundamental, little-discussed lesson that directly impacts their growth: how to scale. You’ll find not only incredible insights in every moment of every talk Dan gives - but also highly actionable takeaways that will propel your business forward. Because Dan gives freely of all that he knows. After all, you can only keep what you give away.

Here’s what to do before anything else. The purpose of a product launch is to drive traffic and sales to your online business, so that it can grow and thrive. Launching a new product is a great way to attract new customers, but it takes time to plan and execute. Many entrepreneurs feel the need to promote their products right away, and end up rushing the process. The result can be disastrous. In the words of David Ramsey, "People are in such a hurry to launch their product that they seldom look at marketing from a bird's eye view and they don't create a systematic plan." A successful product launch starts with a great strategy, and I'm here to walk you through it. Are you ready to learn the step-by-step process for launching your product? Here's what to do before anything else. This page contains affiliate links. If you purchase a product through one of them, I will receive a commission (at no additional cost to you). I only ever endorse products that I have personally used and benefitted from personally.
