A detrimental mistake many startups do is neglecting product experimentation. They focus mainly on experimentation in marketing - optimising ads, copy, creatives, landing pages - because it's relatively easy to do. But this kind of negligence is extremely damaging for your success!
But why don't more startups do this then?
EARLY-STAGE - Specific challenges:
-No budget: “proper” testing tools quite expensive
-Little data to play with
-Not sure what to experiment on / what moves the metrics
-No time; need to focus on the business
GROWTH STAGE - Specific challenges:
-More budget now, but limited by free tools
-More data about what's happening but not really sure why it's
-So many ideas and opportunities, how to prioritise?
SCALING STAGE - Specific challenges:
-All tools in place, but now constrained by tech time: experiments
need to be “bigger” to have impact + are competing with other
-Harder to experiment with the core product, the company is
branching out on other products
-Experimentation becomes scarier: more users, more to lose,
users get used to things being a certain way (“Why did they
change the UI again?”)
