From Nathan at Foundr Magazine

In each space and industry there are always a lot of gurus, tons of amateurs and then there are the real foundrs (yes without the 'e') The entrepreneurs. The people who know how to GSD. They apply all the things we talk about. Idea validation. Frameworks. Systems. Branding. Scaling. These people are the real deal and often land on the cover of our magazine. They make real money, disrupt industries, build real businesses, and amazing teams. And sure, like any entrepreneur they have ups, downs, hits and misses - so they aren't bulletproof but they have a consistent track record of success across a range of businesses. That's the kind of person I look for when I want to learn and master something. No hype, no one hit wonders, just results. Tried and tested in the real world. That's how they pass my BS test. With results that are consistent, have been repeated and have been achieved over time. Because people can be amazing marketers but it's results that talk. So I always have my ear to the ground to see who is getting great results. Now as you probably already know, we are putting together some in-depth training on [...]

The “Minimum Viable Product” Approach

Pragmatically developing a new product or service helps businesses in many ways.  First, getting the product in front of the target market helps identify which features are essential, which are nice complements, and which are extraneous.  Spending time and money on extraneous features is frivolous.  Second, getting a product to market quickly helps generate the revenue necessary to continue future advancements.  Third, having shorter development cycles keeps people focused and maintains momentum.  Additionally, in the dynamic marketplace keeping managerial options available for effective resource allocation is vital.  And, on occasion, you find that the product or service you created with the best intentions really isn't viable.  Better to learn that lesson quickly, for sure. Enter a concept called "Minimum Viable Product", which involves only the requisite feature set that allows a product to be launched and perform without error.  But, an important caveat must be considered about this concept.  An enterprise must be careful in how it deploys the product or service such that it isn't considered underwhelming to the target market. Years ago the idea of launching a minimally-viable product would forever doom the product's chances for success.  Even now, this concept doesn't work for many products.  There's the obvious products.

Speed Vital for New Mover Data

Most marketers know the value of targeting New Movers, for both customer acquisition and retention. When a consumer moves, they make significant purchasing decisions for items such as furniture, electronics, appliances, and even textiles. They also make decisions around services, including doctors, dentists, and bankers. They choose new restaurants. They choose new service stations for vehicle repairs and maintenance. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, new movers spend $7,400 more than people who don't move. And, they engage dozens of new brands post-move. Given that nearly 20% of the U.S. population moves each year, moving-related expenditures are in the billions annually! It's no wonder these consumers are the targets of sophisticated marketers. Data providers for targeted marketing compile different types of lists for marketers, identifying people who have recently moved. The key to taking advantage of this marketing opportunity is to reach consumers early, before they've made their buying decisions and brand affiliations. As such, it is vitally important to not only obtain the data quickly, marketers must make sure the data itself is both fresh and reliable. At Flatiron, we've found the best providers of moving-related data are our colleagues at Speedeon. Speedeon has comprehensive data from [...]
