Buildspace N&W S2 Week 4— Growth
Week 4 workshop is about growth. I believe most of the participants are wondering the same question “What’s next?”.
It’s simple but requires us to be consistent. Build, launch, measure and talk to users & learn. Iterate the process.
Measure the progress
In previous workshop, we have decided what score to focus on and the goal by the demo day. Week 4, Farza shared a Notion template for us to track the score (Well, before this template, I was tracking those metrics using sticky notes 😂)
Questions to ourselves
I don’t know if anyone feels lost on Week 4 but I was a bit lost and didn’t know what to build next. I really want to know what users want to use.
It’s crucial to ask ourselves the questions below
The moment I saw Farza shared about this, I was like “Hey I have a Notion page to manage this as well haha 😂”.
Ask ourselves why we want to do this task is so important. I was once spending quite some times to make the landing page looks cool to scroll from one section to another section. Then I suddenly stepped back one step and looked at my list of tasks, I found that it is actually trivial comparing to all the other tasks.
Give the tasks rank and we can sort them to arrange the implementation in a better way. Please don’t give every task highest rank or no task will be important.
What else I did for Week 4?
I added copy feature and example use cases to the main page and launched the product to Product Hunt. Surprisingly, Sound Better was ranked #5 on the launch day and received more than 100 upvotes!
It brought me lots of traffic and users unexpectedly. I was thinking to get 10 users when I launched it.
Instead of building the feature I planned, I have to enhance Sound Better to handle the traffic well. I didn’t build it to be very robust initially but I think this is a good problem to solve!
I received quite some messages to ask me what’s my plan to keep this momentum going. To be honest, I don’t know. What I know is there are obviously some problems to be solved now and I am still working on it.
Sincerely appreciate if you have any idea to help me grow or keep the momentum going. Just leave me a comment or ping me at Twitter!
