How Risk-Averse Startups Win With Low-Cost Testing - Noah Kagan, CEO AppSumo.com [Video]

How Risk-Averse Startups Win With Low-Cost Testing - Noah Kagan, CEO AppSumo.com [Video] | Small Business Support | Scoop.it

The above video is a conversation between Tim Ferriss, several first-time entrepreneurs, and Noah Kagan, CEO of AppSumo.com. In this video, Noah — who was an early employee at Facebook and Mint.com — covers his risk-minimizing methodologies:


In the first 20 minutes:
- His career path, including failures.
- How he has used low-cost testing in his own ventures.
- Why focusing on the small things (even trivial things) is a big thing.
- Common mistakes and coping mechanisms of first-time founders (e.g. seeking multiple co-founders).


In the second 40 minutes:

- Live critiques (in some cases, constructive tear-downs) of real companies and entrepreneurs.
- How entrepreneurs can make the jump from theory to revenue… in real-time.
- How you can immediately stop “playing business” without customer contact."

The Fish Firm's curator insight, September 14, 2013 12:12 PM

The internet has radically changed the relationship between customers and businesses. This has forced especially small businesses into a new space where ‘business as usual’ must be done differently in order to get discovered, connect with customers and run effective promotions.

As we’ve been visiting with small businesses, we’ve found that most are using social media to connect with customers. But at the same time, most are unaware of the power online communities, that include a combination of Social, Local and Mobile media, can play in today's consumer’s purchase decisions.

This stat proves this to be true: "Peer recommendations drive sales. 70% of consumer said they were influenced by a friend or family member’s online recommendation, beating out in-person recommendation (61%), online articles (59%), ads (49%), or someone they follow online but don’t know (32%)"
