4 Simple Steps To Build Better Value Propositions With A/B Testing

4 Simple Steps To Build Better Value Propositions With A/B Testing | Business Model Design | Scoop.it
A/B testing is a popular technique used by digital marketers to convert
customers. A slight tweak in copy or imagery on a landing page can make a
significant impact on the types of actions your customers perform. But
product managers and entrepreneurs also leverage this technique to validate
or invalidate experiments on their products and services. It’s a powerful
method to make data-backed decisions when building your value proposition,
but it’s also incredibly easy to get lost in a rabbit hole of A/B tests if
you focus on the wrong conditions or techniques. In this post, I’ll share a
basic primer on A/B testing--how it works, and some examples of how they
can be performed.

Alex Osterwalder and I recently got to thinking: what are the different
ways someone could “purposely” run their business into the ground? It’s
easy to talk about how to poorly execute a business (hire the wrong people,
scale too fast, or ignore your customers). But Alex and I wanted to plot
out some of the variables that can poke holes in a business model. It’s a
great way to think about what you might be doing wrong as you build your
business. Check out our list and share your own examples, too.

Reinvent Your Company While It's Still Successful

Reinvent Your Company While It's Still Successful | Business Model Design | Scoop.it
The biggest issue large companies have is that they can't reinvent
themselves, especially when they're still successful. Companies have to
think about creating new growth engines that result in higher margins than
its existing business, or they risk becoming irrelevant. Amazon is one
example of a company that continually reinvents itself. Through its Amazon
Web Services business, the online retailer was able to launch a completely
new company that generates much higher margins than its core ecommerce
business. What's incredible is how Amazon managed to do it with resources
it already had. Here's some phenomenal schooling on how companies can
reinvent themselves while they are still successful.
