Sequoia Capital, the VC behind Airbnb, Uber, and WhatsApp, has backed over 300 startups. Their pitch deck framework has funded over $3.3 trillion dollars in market value. Steal it for free: The single best trait of an entrepreneur is someone who can tell a story. Investors have a short attention span. They will give you the most attention at the start of your pitch. In the first 5 minutes be crystal clear about what you actually do. #1. Company Purpose What is your mission? Condense into a simple powerful sentence. Don't list features– communicate your purpose. Include a simple graphic that describes your business model. Nobody cares what you can do. Everybody cares what you can do for them. #2. Problem What challenges do you address and solve? • Describe the pain of your customer (bigger the better) • Explain how this is currently addressed • Show why the current market offerings are inadequate Don't build a solution that's looking for a problem. #3. Solution What key points will communicate the most value? • What was your 'aha' moment? • Why is your value proposition unique and compelling? • Are you building a competitive moat such as network effects? • How big can this market grow? #4. Why Now Timing is everything. The best companies have a clear why now. • Why hasn't your solution been built before? • What industry trends make this the perfect time to act? A famous example is Netflix: high-speed internet made streaming services possible. #5. Market Size Can this be a really big opportunity? • Total addressable market (TAM) = total market demand • Serviceable available market (SAM) = portion of TAM served by the company • Serviceable obtainable market (SOM) = percentage of SAM which is realistically achieved #6. Competition Thiel said: "All failed companies are the same: they failed to escape competition." Who are your direct and indirect competitors? Know your market– map these out on an x/y axis. What's your plan to win & differentiate? #7. Product I recommend pre-recoding a demo with Loom. You get to record your screen and camera whilst giving a clear explanation. A picture is worth 1000 words, a movie is worth a million pictures. Bring the solution alive. #8. Business Model How do you make money? Typically it falls into a few buckets: • Advertising • Subscription • Transactions Include metrics around critical areas including: • Customer acquisition cost (CAC) • Life time value (LTV) #9. Team Your people are the most important factor that determine whether your startup succeeds or fails. People recruit talent, garner attention and win deals. Highlight special talents and experiences that make the individual suited to the business. #10. Financials Don't get lost in the numbers– keep it simple. I recommend highlighting key metrics and growth charts. Show sources and uses (what you are raising and how you will spend it). What are the key milestones? Using a timeline will help demonstrate your runway. If you enjoyed this thread: https://twitter.com/thealexbanks/status/1580547830476775425?s=20&t=AX2l-8taMbAs9xBll_mntQ
It's been quite a while since I built a feature for https://famewall.io which is a no-code tool to collect & manage testimonials for your product As a solo founder, I was mostly occupied with marketing & sales and kept procrastinating the action of adding features as I wanted to focus on paying customers. After growing the product for a while now & acquiring paying users, switched back to my building hat 🤩 Just shipped a new format to embed testimonials on landing pages easily
There are huge mistakes we all make when building business networking. I have listed a few of my experiences below. I would appreciate it if you could share your views to establish healthier and long-term relationships. > Only Self-promoting > Confusing networking with face-to-face cold calling > Abusing the relationship > Just focusing on getting clients, missed opportunities for "Connection" > They are trying to sell products right after connecting
Product development and marketing are completely intertwined. If a product is not well-conceived, it will not complete well with competitive products, will not have strong appeal to customers, and will be harder to sell. This means that the sales-force will have to push harder to generate volume, will resist efforts to get them to spend time doing so (spending their time on easier sales), and will require more price cutting and/or “merchandising efforts” to move inventory. This results in lower profit margins, slower turnover (ROI impact), unproductive use of advertising funds (if any applied…not wise with a low-appeal product), and loss of business to competitors. The correlation is tight: a requirement for more marketing means lower profits and loss of market share. If Product Development doesn’t do its job effectively, Marketing will have little to work with. Profit during a product’s life cycle depends on some brilliance at the first stages of “concept development.” Lastly, how do you know when you’ve done a great job of product development? When you can’t keep up with “customer orders” (even with minimal marketing expenditures) your profit margins are high, and you are taking business away from competitors!
Product development is the process of Identifying user needs/desires Translating those needs/desires into specifications Designing a product/system/experience that you think will meet those specifications Verifying your design does indeed meet the specifications described in step 2. Validating that meeting the specifications in step 2 means you address the needs/desires in step 1. Repeat until you think your product is good enough to launch. Launch. Pro tip: It sucks hard finding out late in the game that your "Step 2 Specifications" don't map well to the "Step 1 needs/desires". Build a lot of prototypes early and get them out in front of users so you have confidence in the Step 1.
I have used Copy.ai, Hemingway App, Smart Copy, and Wordtune. I majorly use these to create promotional emails, push notifications, and ad copies. I loved Smart Copy for generating long-form content. I entered a few lines as input, and the tool was able to generate a decent long-form copy for an email. It majorly helped in saving time with grunt work. I use Hemingway App to check for readability and sometimes either Word Tune or Copy.AI for short ad copies or email subject lines. Which tool do you folks use?
The notion that the creator economy is saturated is a limiting belief. If you don't put your ideas out there now, someone else will. (In my Personal Experience There is room for everyone in this new economy. I waited forever to start posting, which is a shame because it’s the only way I started learning)
In many teams worldwide, remote meetings have become a crucial workflow element. The first issue you must overcome is the fear that you would conduct a remote meeting poorly. How do you make remote online meetings more exciting and engaging for your team members?
I recently gathered all the tools I used to build and launch my projects. It's crazy how much you can do with free tools and how easy it is to create your MVP. For instance, the first version of my job board was made in a couple of days with Airtable + Zapier + Table2Site + MailerLite. What are your go-to when starting a new startup? If anyone is curious, I can share my complete list, which I recently published on my blog.
