Positioning – how to find product market fit
The Lean Startup
Crossing the Chasm
We’re increasingly seeing this move towards niche communities, niche audiences, and people having to learn how to find and connect, which is old school marketing, which I love.
It’s intimidating to navigate personal finance. There’s a lot of content out there that is not written with women in mind. There’s no community for women, but Ask Flossie changes that.
I think that a lot of startups really underestimate how much they need visual design to look like they’re trustworthy and look like they’re compelling.
We use something like 20% more words when we speak versus when we write to get the same point across.
If you’re working with a sales team, your empathy for them has to be 120%. The objections that I ran into as a salesperson were objections that I as a marketer could have preempted.
One of the best tools for startups and small companies is Upwork. I’ve used it extensively to fill tradecraft gaps. Ask Flossie will be a legion of contractors before I hire someone.
You have to be willing to take risks and listen to how you get received. I’m gonna give it a whirl because nobody is going to die if I don’t get that video series right.
A little bit of visual design goes a long way in reducing friction in helping somebody connect quickly. When you do it right, you convey a really positive emotion about your brand.
I think that we’re going to see a little bit of a backswing towards formality when we’re all released back into the wild after COVID and can like put on business clothes again.
If you’ve got an audience of 100 people and you’re not prepared, even if you’re addressing them directly and being authentic, make it worth their time they bothered to show up.
