My target audience<br />Mass market
consumer internet startups<br />Daily usage, but low value interactions<br />Ad-supported, indirect monetization models<br />First to 100M uniques/month wins<br />
Executing the “Viability-First” strategy<br />Get
a lot of users through viral channels<br />Create a Minimum Viable Product<br />Maximize user acquisition and revenue/user<br />Iterate to a great product experience (?)<br />Can this ever lead to a high engagement product with sustainable viral growth?<br />
Scenarios that made me think<br
/>High-growth social network that’s profitable but has terrible user retention<br />Dating site with lots of subscribers, but no one can find the dates they were promised<br />Photo-sharing site with 100M+ uniques/month organic growth, but unprofitable<br />
The “Desirability-First” strategy<br />Understand user
goals<br />Create a Minimum Desirable Product<br />Listen to users and maximize Love <3<br />Iterate to a great product experience<br />It still needs to be viable and feasible, so filter your ideas through that!<br />
How to build an MDP<br
/>Understand the target user and their goals<br />Identify 2-3 core scenarios<br />Make it 1-4 main pages<br />Tech demo in <2 weeks, MDP in 4-6 weeks<br />Are you using it every day?<br />Will 10 people to use it every day? 100?<br />
Min versus Max Desirability<br />Maximum
desirability != More features<br />They probably have less features<br />Focus on the “right” scenarios<br />Compelling and refined consumer value<br />Boiling down the minimal featureset takes more time, not less! (Good design is hard)<br />
