I was meant to give a 60 minute presentation for an interview for a head of growth role at a startup, then Covid happened so I never got to give it. So I’m going to do 6 little blogs on the slides I would have presented and publish them here as not to waste the time I put in. This is 1/6 – Intro.

This was a 60 minute presentation that I was going to have to give as a final round for a head of growth role before Covid happened and I never got to give it, I really don't want it to go to waste.

It comprises a few key parts, and despite the slight romanticising of a ‘growth hacker’ role over the last couple of years, it’s anything but a telenovela. These were the slides.

  1. Intro
  2. Data friendliness
  3. Manufacturing creativity
  4. Diversifying growth
  5. Mission evangelism
  6. Rate limiting steps

I am a growth hacker, but I think it may have also changed slightly since Sean Ellis made the differentiation in 2010 between marketer and growth hacker: Sean coined the term when he couldn’t find anyone to replace the work he was doing as a marketing consultant at this time, issuing the need for a new job specification altogether.

This would have been my introduction, simply highlighting a few key areas that would make for a fantastic environment for a growth lead to come in.

Firstly, growth is still true north

If retention suffers, if the brand is dragged through the mud, if the campaigns starts to open a wormhole into a universe with giant eye-eating monsters; that simply isn’t the growth hacker’s problem. As a blinkered horse charges, as a berserker cleaves heads; one is not to reason why, one is but to grow or die.

In the most simple of terms, any job that does not involve THE number going up, is not the responsibility of the growth team.

Secondly, have a North Star Metric

This is THE thing you can base your company’s success on. Defining this will help a growth manager remain streamlined in their work. It will also encourage absolute transparency and efficiency with work. ‘How does the work you are currently undertaking help us achieve our goal?’

If you haven’t worked it out yet, do it now.

Thirdly, understand the simple sum behind growth.

UX + Product + Marketing = Customer Advocacy.

Advocacy + Growth Marketing = Successful growth

This is simple. If the product does not have a gradual upwards trend organically, then do not expect a growth marketer to come in and fix this. Growth hacking is a way of making as many eyes and ears as possible see the product for what it is, it is not tilting what the product is in order for it to be more appealing to the audience.

I have had to do the latter, it ends poorly.

Finally, good ideas are systematised.

Sitting around waiting for awesome things to happen is like waiting for lightning to strike on a summer’s day. As a company, create processes that drive creativity and free thinking.

———————————————————————————

I will publish the first blog tomorrow regarding data friendliness. I couldn’t think of a better way to explain it. It essentially means becoming incredibly knowledgeable about the processes and percentages that lead to a conversion, across the whole marketing effort.

Feel free to ask me questions along the way, it's going to be a cathartic journey.

You’ll never guess what Adam Strong flipped before domain names

 MorganLinton.com: Adam Strong is one of the domain investors I heard about very early into my journey in domain name investing. If you haven’t heard of Adam, don’t feel bad, he’s a very humble guy and therefore not someone you see soaking up much of the limelight. That being said, Adam’s an incredibly sharp and savvy […]

Note to self — Never give up on your dreams

About 6 months ago I started working on a small project. It was a side project. I had this problem that had been bothering me for a while, I talked to friends and colleagues about it. I didn’t have much time to work on it though. I was in the final stretch of my degree and my capstone.

Nonetheless, I got to work. Every bit of free time I had — in the mornings before class, on weekend and late nights — I dedicated myself to building my mini little side project.

About a month later I had a working app. When I say working, I mean it didn’t crash, and it was so far from what I had in mind it was embarrassing. Screw it though, I published it. Nothing happened. I continued working on it in my free time and started building the features that I wanted. To help myself. This tool was truly something that I wanted and in fact had convinced myself I needed.

Apparently, others were interested too. From a simple gif that I posted online, a few people left their email, and wanted to try it out. Initial feedback from these users, my friends, and my roommate was almost null. They thought it was pretty, and some even said it saved them a couple times, but no real praise was given. More concerningly, no criticisms. I think my roommate was just being nice, and the other users simply stopped using the app.

What did I do? I did what I knew I could. I reached out, I asked for feedback, suggestions, and comments. I continued working in the background, constantly iterating. Low and behold, after some time, I got some feedback. Some good, some bad. I thanked everyone who responded and told them to keep sending any feedback. I fixed things, I changed things, I iterated.

As more and more people tried out the app, I kept on reaching out manually and continued the cycle.

Now 4 months in, I had gone full time on this “Side project”. I committed myself to seeing through my vision. I did however, take note daily of the looming stress of not having any real income, and dedicating 95% of my time to something that I simply just wanted to work on, not that had any promise or guarantee of success. I was, you could say, building a small startup.

Things intensified, I decided I needed to make this thing real. I needed to focus on the early adopters who were willing to pay for an unproven tool — the ones who provided real feedback, were invested in the tool, and actually wanted it to succeed.

Unfortunately, the situation just got tougher — users had lots of praise but also equal amounts of confusion. I continued pushing forward, continued iterating, stretching my days to as long as possible; essentially working for as long and hard as I could, fueled only by small plaudits from users. I was making a sacrifice familiar to so many founders, managers, hackers, nomads, and the like. Your friends, family, and other life aspects suffer while you work. While you commit yourself so wholeheartedly to a dream. It sounds aspirational, but it is in fact a very daunting, unrelenting, daily struggle.

Finally, someone very close to me snapped. They said, “I’m tired of seeing you do this, working away at nothing”. This wasn’t new. Doubt and disapproving judgements were constant. I reassured and tried to communicate my vision. No luck.

This weighed heavily on me. Really I only faced two options. Give up, and get on with a normal life. Or continue working on my dream, at the sacrifice of myself, friends, and family.

I chose myself.

Not 30 minutes later, and the reason for writing this piece, I received an email. I will never forget this moment. I received a notification that one of my users became a paying subscriber. A small light in a dark, lonely cave. I felt a rush of emotion.

I am writing this to tell myself, and maybe even you the reader, do not give up. Do not lose hope. Stay ever optimistic, foolish, and persistent. Evaluate yourself and your dreams daily and improve. Do not give up simply because they aren’t working out just yet. People on the internet, your own doubts and family will tell you to give up. To “stop wasting your time”. Your dreams are your dreams, own them. I will end this with a quote that has stuck with me:

"I can't imagine a person becoming a success who doesn't give this game of life everything he's got." – Walter Cronkite

PS if you’re feeling down, need some motivation/advice/ or just someone to talk to feel free to reach out. I’d be more than happy to chat.

If you want to checkout the tool I’ve been working so hard on you can see it here: https://www.partizion.io/

Stay hungry, stay foolish,

The Untold Truth About Entrepreneurship: 10 Things People Never Tell You Before Starting

They say that the only way to self-mastery is by assuming absolute control over your life processes. Entrepreneurship is one of the activities that can have a massive impact in that respect. It is an activity that will not only allow you to take matters into your own hands but also reveal the essence of the words responsibility, discipline, and productivity in all its glory.

In this post, I will reveal some things that you seldom find on the headlines of famous media outlets. These are things that you learn only when you have hands-on experience in the area and you have spent days and nights trying to polish your strategies. My hope is that by revealing these things I will save you time, money, energy, regrets, and unwanted conflict.

Whether you are an entrepreneur already, or you are thinking to start your own business, this article will prove invaluable along the way.

1.ENTREPRENEURSHIP BOILS DOWN TO COMMON SENSE

…but common sense isn’t always common practice. That’s something a former colleague of mine told me while I was working as a business consultant. This simple yet powerful remark has stayed with me, and I keep referring to it, till this very day.

The real question, however, is this: what does common sense look like and how do I know I have it?

Common sense is nothing more than good sense and sound judgment in practical matters. Some examples include:

  • You can’t hire someone just because you know them. It is common sense that you need to evaluate their background and identify whether or not it fits the type of product you sell.
  • You can’t look and act unprofessionally. It is common sense that if you look and act that way nobody will trust you.
  • You can’t expect your sales people to improvise on how to promote your product. It is common sense that you need to train them and provide them with the necessary material.
  • You need to create an accurate image of your ideal customer. It is common sense that you need to know your customers in order to find them, understand their needs, and target them accordingly.

I will elaborate on most of these and some more below.

Additionally, you identify common sense by detaching yourself from your ego and by stepping into your customer’s shoes.

When you start your own business, you are blinded by your ego. It is the same feeling you get when you have your first child. Your business is your baby. You have an idea of how to raise it, but because it is your “possession” you can’t see things objectively, oftentimes reverting to unorthodox practices and behaviors. Even if you do things wrong, you are convinced that you do things right.

Most of business owners fall into this trap and therefore suffer dramatically.

I understand that when you do things wrong and you eventually have to face potential change, more often than not, you develop resistance towards change. That’s because of laziness and because of fear of change. You aren’t sure what to expect and you don’t know if the required change (which will certainly require time and money investment) will yield the expected returns.

Well, I can assure you that if things aren’t going as planned, change is the surest way to go. I read somewhere that:

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

That is very relevant when it comes to entrepreneurship

2.YOUR IDEA IS WORTH NOTHING AND TRACTION IS EVERYTHING

Two years ago, I attended an amazing entrepreneurship conference called Pioneers Festival. One of the speakers was Philipp Moehring from Angelist who gave a prodigious speech on what investors look for when they evaluate your company. In one of his slides, he mentioned that your idea is worth close to nothing.

That is something incredibly important to grasp. Your idea, no matter how innovative you think it is, no matter how interesting it sounds in your head, no matter how much research you have put into it, is worth nothing.

If your team is not great, if your execution is not close to perfect, if you haven’t properly identified your niche, if you don’t understand your customer’s needs, the idea is worth nothing.

Which brings us to the most important part when it comes to product and business evaluations: Traction.

If your product is converting, if it is generating revenue, and if it is attracting interest, it is a great product.

Great investors know that once your product generates traction and reaches product-market fit, it has the potential to become a gold mine.

The reason I stress the importance of this is that a lot of founders exhibit two bad habits:

  • Are secretive about their ideas.
  • Give insane evaluations to their companies when they are actually worth nothing.

So, the main principle here is that, in the beginning, you have to assume that you know nothing and that your idea is worth nothing. Now you are more humble and you can make sure that you will focus on the fundamentals of your business.

3.BRANDING MATTERS

I have heard people on the Internet suggest that as far as your product is great, your branding doesn’t matter.

This is very wrong and the reason is twofold:

  • Humans are visual creatures. We are attracted to aesthetically pleasing views and we will always favor something beautiful to something ugly.
  • Every successful salesman and marketing person will tell you that most buyers are impulsive. They don’t always buy something because they need it, but more because they are convinced that they need it. Part of that convincing is how the product looks.

That said, I am not suggesting that it is ok for your product to be average and that you should spend most of your time on marketing and branding.

What I suggest, is that you should spend an equal amount of time on creating a great product and on promoting it successfully.

Great branding makes your product look professional and people can trust you easier.

Every product out there has to face competition. Successful branding is one of the surest ways to make your product stand out.

4.NETWORKING AMOUNTS TO PROBABLY 50% OF SUCCESS

You will hear a lot of people stress out the importance of networking in business success, but you can’t really understand that importance if you don’t experience it first hand.

Networking allows you to meet the right people and these people feel obliged to help you if you were introduced to them by someone they trust and respect.

Now, this is good in theory but practically it is quite laborious because it requires a lot of effort and great social skills. There are a lot of books out there that explain how it is done, but most of them repeat the same advice:

  • Put yourself out there
  • “Ping” constantly
  • Be generous (buy people drinks, dinners etc.)
  • Make it more about them and less about you
  • Leverage social media for exposure

In that respect, I want to add one more thing: Do not consider networking unless you have made a lot of progress with your product development.

If you are just starting and you have just an idea, going to networking events is a waste of time. You might listen to some successful people promote their story and you might get some interesting feedback, but, most probably, you will end up disappointed because no one will be interested in you.

Make sure that you focus on creating a great product and once you see the first signs of traction, you will be in a position to promote it.

5.WORK ONLY WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE PROFESSIONAL

Professionalism and delivery will help you stand out. It is absurd how many businesses are leaving money on the table because of their inability to exude professionalism.

In the trade business I run, our operations are in Greece at the moment. Some of the companies I decided to contact, in order to buy raw material and other services for my product, dumbfounded me with their lack of professionalism. I wanted to make really big orders, way bigger than what they usually get, and, instead of overdelivering, they lacked enthusiasm, and oftentimes they didn’t even respond to emails. There is nothing worse than that when it comes to business.

Jordan Belford mentions a similar incident in “Straight Line Persuasion System” about a time he visited a Porsche Dealership. He was very excited about buying a new car and when he starting discussing with the dealer he got turned off because he was unable to make him feel sure about what he was buying.

So, if you really want to stand out, make sure to:

  • Respond promptly
  • Be polite
  • Over-deliver
  • Offer competitive prices

6.WHEN HIRING PEOPLE, DO THE BEER TEST

Some years ago, I attended a startup event. Among the presenters was a company that developed a platform that helps consumers find the cheapest price of a product online.

They are a very successful company and they stand out because of their incredible work environment. That, however, didn’t happen to them accidentally. Hiring the right people is a very challenging endeavor and many companies face extreme problems because of that.

What the representative of this company suggests is that, when hiring, you should do the beer test. What this means in simple words is this:

Ask yourself. If you go out for a beer with this person, will you have a good time?

Does this person show empathy? Can they listen? Can they contribute? Are they open-minded? How do they handle criticism? Are they eager to learn? Can they stay cool under pressure?

All these are extremely critical and when coupled with great technical background and a solid work ethic, you found the perfect match for your hire.

7.THE BEGINNING IS THE MOST DIFFICULT PART AND PREPARATION WILL SAVE YOU TIME

Your beginning will be emotionally exhausting. You will be really enthusiastic and everything, but once you realize how overwhelming the processes of entrepreneurship can be, you will start having second thoughts.

That’s why what I suggest to people who have no previous experience in the area is to invest some time upfront in studying the subject. There is a ton of online courses on entrepreneurship, marketing, sales, management, and coding out there. With so much free knowledge, the world is your oyster.

Before I quit my day job as a business consultant, I spent almost a year reading and studying entrepreneurship. I still didn’t have a good idea of what this new world really is. I understood it when I actually started being “in business.”

However, when you start working on your project, make sure to focus primarily on getting things done. Don’t inundate your schedule with podcasts and blogs and social media. You will lose your ability to focus and your performance will suffer dramatically.

If you have a concrete work ethic in place that is characterized by discipline, flow immersion, and time management, everything will work out fine.

Until your launch, everything will be vague and uncertain, but after your launch, you will get a good idea of what works and what doesn’t in order to make the necessary adjustments and corrections.

You will soon realize that after you spend some time “living” your product, you will feel that you “own” its processes and some things will work automatically. This is the best time because it is then when you can actually focus on profitability and sustainability.

8.SHARE YOUR JOURNEY BECAUSE THAT INCREASES ENGAGEMENT

This is a pro tip and something that has helped companies enjoy tremendous growth.

Sharing your journey allows your clients or customers to get an insider’s view of your business. It demonstrates that you are transparent and confident about your product and culture and it makes you look interesting and approachable.

There are many people who have attempted this successfully, but I will mention here the most interesting ones:

Space X

Elon Musk is a master at this. In space X for instance, he sells the journey impeccably.

Space X emphasizes on the journey. A journey almost everybody wants to take part in.

Additionally, their events are astonishing and the enthusiasm of their followers is palpable.

Gary Vaynerchuk

Gary Vaynerchuk is a social media influencer and motivator with a huge following. He does a great job sharing his journey and simultaneously educating his following on marketing, branding, and business matters.

Even the Kardashians do that effectively. You might think that their personalities and attitude are prosaic and silly, but there are millions of people out there who approve it and enjoy the fact that they can have a sneak peek into their lives.

9.THE TWO METHODS OF PRODUCT LAUNCH

There is usually a huge confusion when people start.

As I mentioned before, there are many things to be done and you oftentimes lose track of what really matters.

There are usually two methods that can determine a great start to your business:

The Japanese method

Japanese people are notorious for their proactivity and preparation. The Japanese method is inspired by the Japanese mentality and suggests that before your launch you should spend significant time making the first version of your product great and your branding professional.

Bear in mind that you should choose that method when you are very confident that your product can stand out. You can evaluate that when you have identified a certain gap in a big market.

Maybe you live in a developing country and you can bring a technology or product that is a big hit elsewhere around the world. Or maybe you think that the products in a specific market aren’t that competitive and you can build something better.

The beta method

If your idea is something quite innovative, test it in a small segment of the market first.

Find a group of people who might be interested in the idea and pitch it to them.

For instance, go to a subreddit or a forum and ask people what they think about your idea. If you get an overwhelmingly positive response, design a prototype or beta version and give it away for free so people can test it.

If people like it, you have established the potentiality for a great product or service. Now it’s up to your mentality and execution if it will become successful or not.

10.IT WILL BE THE MOST DIFFICULT THING YOU WILL EVER DO IN YOUR LIFE

It includes risk. It includes losing money. It includes losing friends. It includes losing your mind.

A lot of people will question you, a lot of people will envy you and a lot of people will admire you.

At the end of the day, none of that matters.

The reason you decided to start your own business should be unaffected by external influence. Maybe you do it because it is challenging and because it gives your life more meaning. Maybe you do it because you want to make money and you think that money can buy you some freedom. Maybe you do it because you don’t like having a boss and you want to be your own boss.

Be clear about your reasoning. Clear reasoning leads to clarity of intent and this makes your progress smoother.

And make sure to read the following quote by the great Charles Bukowski every day:

“If you're going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don't even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery–isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you'll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you're going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It's the only good fight there is.”

These are, in my opinion, the most critical elements to consider when starting a company.

If you want to correct me or add more value to my ideas feel free to comment.

Startups – Rapid Growth and Innovation is in Our Very Nature!

Need help in dealing with a co founder who does half assed work, never submits on time and is a pain to work with in general.

Hey guys, need some advice on dealing with my co-founder. A few months ago two of my good friends and I decided on starting a business. Since the beginning of this year, we've been laying the groundwork. We're still college students and had to juggle academics and this. However, increasingly, one of my partners has become more irresponsible and a pain to work with. He is impulsive and moody. There have been times in our calls when just refuses to work with a particular person and gives no reason. When we confront him, he gets angry and leaves or continues to make a big fuss without giving a reason. He is constantly rude to my other co founder and does not take him or what he says seriously. He is horrible at taking feedback and constructive criticism – just the other day he was to come up with a marketing plan which ended up being a 1 page document with various terms instead of a plan ( We are all still college students so I dont expect him to know everything, but I expect him to communicate and research). So I l(Im the CEO) looked into stuff and gave him a super detailed feedback. However, he got upset that we didnt like his work, gave me a one word reply and in his updated draft he didnt include anything I mentioned and made no real changes other than defining some terms. He's in denial. He believes hes doing a lot, or atleast tells people so, but isn't doing anything substantial. A lot of work is half assed and never on time.

To get things in order and to document things, we set up a weekly assignment system where we track everyones work. He has not submitted his work a single time on time. Some assignments have never come in and others are half assed. Rn, this has left me incredibly angry. I believe we've the potential to actually be succesful and I've been working towards it. But this guy seems to be only fancy the titles and wants to seem busy to everyone else. I've reminded him that he is failing to meet his deadlines a couple of times, both nicely and sternly, but it hasnt yielded anything.

The final straw was when recently, he went more than 2 weeks over the deadline to produce something that is crucial to our business and we really cannot move forward without it. We still don't have it. He have me a lousy excuse saying that our feedback demoralised him and hence he didnt do it. This triggered me. I sent him a huge message on what the problem was and why he wasnt producing anything (I didnt yell because I wanted to reason with him instead of him getting defensive). To this, he gave me a 1 word reply ( pretty much said ok). Later he goes on and starts talking to the others and me about the business as though nothing had happened. I've been super mad since, I assigned the work to someone else. I havent said anything else to him and would like to hear your advice on dealing with a situation like this. The biggest problem is that we're close friends. I've known him since I was 5. If I kick him out it'll inevitably damage our friendship which is somthing Id like to avoid. But I really wanna suceed in this business and have worked hard for it. Idk how else to get him to actually do stuff – I've spoken to him both nicely and sternly, I've yelled, etc.

The company is supposed to be split equally between the three of us. However, we are yet to legally split it.

P.S. pls forgive the typos its late and I'm frustrated.
