Dans ce cours de growth hacking, Oussama te donne les règles pour bâtir une homepage pour gagner des utilisateurs.

- Une homepage ne devrait pas être faite pour plaire à tous. Elle t'aide à vérifier la pertinence de ta value proposition. Sois radicale, la haine est le plus court chemin vers l'intérêt ;)
- Par sa simplicité, une squeeze page te permet de savoir avec certitude ce qui marche.
- N'aie pas peur de recommencer. Si ta homepage n'est pas à 30% de conversion, tu n'y es pas encore.
- Une value proposition est la raison principale pour laquelle les gens vont s'inscrire sur ta homepage.
- Le but est de pouvoir expliquer clairement ce que tu fais, ce que ca apporte et pourquoi tu es le meilleur... en une phrase !
- Apprends le language de ta cible.
- Si tu vois quelque chose qui marche, tu le fais.

"Les erreurs à ne pas faire sur votre homepage" par Oussama Amar

  1. 1. Many thanks to: Andrew Chen
  2. 2. Growth Hacking Meetup - Homepages Episode 1
  3. 3. No access without signup 
  4. 4. Most startups make the mistake of giving people who visit their site free access to content, whether it’s apartment booking or daily deals.
  5. 5. This is often a bad idea
  6. 6. Contrary to popular belief, the more things a visitor can interact with on your site before they’re prompted to sign up, the lower your signup rate will be. 
  7. 7. There is a big difference between good UX practice and good Growth Hacking practice
  8. 8. Good UX is great if your business objectives are aligned
  9. 9. Sometimes you have to frustrate people!
  10. 10. Navigation and hyperlinks are almost always absent
  11. 11. Internet marketers have developed what they call the “Squeeze Page” with minimal content and a single clear call-to-action. Why? Additional information can distract a visitor or cause them to click away to a different website.
  12. 12. Notice that there’s nothing below the fold on any of these sites.
  13. 13. Focus on a single, clear value proposition.  Boil it down to one clear statement: “Your best source for knowledge” or “Be great at what you do”.
  14. 14. People almost never read more than one sentence on your site (and they won’t even read that one unless it’s big enough and strategically placed), so there’s no point in trying to figure out your top 3 “bulletpoints”.
  15. 15. This also makes it much, much easier to test as a growth hacker. Just replace one sentence with another until it works.
  16. 16. What exactly is a value proposition? A value proposition is a promise of value to be delivered. It’s the primary reason a prospect should buy from you.
  17. 17. In a nutshell, a value proposition is a clear statement that: • Explains how your product solves a problem (relevancy), • Delivers specific benefits (quantified value), • Tells why customers should buy from you and not the competition (unique differentiation).
  18. 18. Use the right language Your value proposition needs to be in the language of the customer. You cannot guess what that language is. The answers are outside of your office. You have to interview your customers to find it out, or use social media.
  19. 19. What the value proposition is NOT • It’s not a slogan or a catch phrase: “L’Oréal. Because we’re worth it.” • It’s not a positioning statement: “America’s #1 Bandage Brand. Heals the wound fast, heals the hurt faster.” A positioning statement is a subset of a value proposition, but it’s not the same thing.
  20. 20. What makes a good value proposition: • Clarity! It’s easy to understand. • It communicates concrete results from buying your product • It says how it’s different or better • It avoids hype (like ‘never seen before amazing miracle product’), superlatives (‘best’) and business jargon (‘value-added interactions’) • It can be read and understood in about 5 seconds.
  21. 21. Your product is NOT about sharing 
  22. 22. I see this mistake all the time.
  23. 23. Lots of startups start out thinking that people will use their product because it helps them “share” things more easily.
  24. 24. Let me be clear here: most people do not share. And even the people who share things aren’t sharing 90% of the time.
  25. 25. Most of the time on the web is spent consuming, not producing. More than 50% of Twitter users almost never tweet.
  26. 26. This is why Twitter has shifted their messaging from “the easiest way to share with your friends’ to “Find out what’s happening, right now, with the people and organizations you care about”.
  27. 27. If you cater only to proactive people, you’ll be alienating most of your potential users.
  28. 28. Big images ARE A NO BRAINER!  They increase conversion rates.  Just do it.
  29. 29. Work with taste your iconography!
  30. 30. That’s how you will create empathy with your users
  31. 31. Embedded signup forms  Start your signup process on the homepage so people don’t have to click through to a new page for no reason. The more clicks you have in your signup process, the more people will drop off along the way.
  32. 32. When I tell people these things they often complain: “But everyone knows Twitter and Facebook! No one has ever heard of my startup so I actually need to explain it to people.”
  33. 33. YOU ARE (FUCKING) WRONG!
  34. 34. Maybe you and I already know what Twitter and Facebook are about, but believe it or not, there are still people on earth who haven’t heard of them. Those are the people these homepages are trying to convert.
  35. 35. The same is true for your startup. Being stubborn just because you’re scared to try something counter-intuitive is a sure way to make sure you never do anything innovative.
  36. 36. Counter Example Increasing signup is not a goal for everyone
  37. 37. Let’s take Alexa 10 #3 YouTube — putting a giant “sign up first” wall in front of YouTube probably would have killed them. #6 Amazon — Amazon is all about converting people into accounts AFTER they decide to buy, and you better believe they’ve a/b tested it. #7 Wikipedia — Primarily a read-first experience #8 QQ – Holy crap that is a lot of text
  38. 38. Said another way, increasing signups isn’t necessarily important for every company, and many successful companies don’t focus on it.
