Meet Max Weisbrod (@Mweisbrod), Founder of Baton. It's hard for early-stage, high-growth startups to do customer success well — I mean, who has time to document processes and systematize new customer onboarding when you're out pounding the digital payment and building new feature sets? And that's where Baton comes in.  Baton is a service that empowers early-stage startups with the customer success teams they need to achieve their goals by embedding top offshore success specialists in 30 days. On this episode of Zero to (point) One, Max and Zach talk about: Why consulting for a customer-segment in your target market BEFORE building a product is so crucial How to fire customers that aren't a good fit (even if they account for 20% of your revenue!) Why more side-hustlers need to stop "trying" and start "doing"  Follow Max on Twitter Learn More About Baton About the Show Zero to (point) One is hosted by Zach Busekrus (@zboozee).    I'm an entrepreneur in residence at a marketing firm by day and building my own start up Sponstayneous by night.    Sponstayneous brings subscribers the best last-minute deals and upcoming steals on Airbnb.  My wife and I co-founded the company while living full-time on Airbnb last year.   There's a lot of podcasts out there that feature entrepreneurs: once they've gone public once they've had an exit or even once they've made their first million.   But not as many that feature the first-time Product Hunt launchers, the Indie Hacker that has yet to go viral on Twitter, or the micro influencer who wants to build their first niche product.    And there's where this show comes in. Zero to (point) One features a collection of ideas that may go nowhere, or just might change the world, from people you've never heard of, who may just become household names.    A nod to tech founder Peter Thiel's Zero to One framework, Zero to (point) One explores the beginnings of (very) early-stage creators and entrepreneurs whose first chapters are still being written.     Each guest featured on the show has MRR of $500 - $10k (no more and no less) or has 10k - 100k followers on Instagram, TikTok, or Twitter.    Come and meet the next generation of builders wherever you get your podcasts every Friday morning.    If you'd like to be on the show or if you know someone who might be a good fit for the show, send me an email at zach@sponstayneous.com or DM me on Twitter @zboozee.    Finally, be sure to subscribe — who knows?  You may just meet your future co-founder, your next great investment, or the next Steve or Elon right here.

The Master Marketer Show

We've all seen the movies and TV shows about startups and the intense commitment workers are expected to have in order for the business to thrive. However, what does it mean to work for a “visionary,” and how much of a voice should you have in the process of building a startup? In this week's episode, we welcome Carter Severns, Vice President of Marketing at Place, for a chat on the unique workflow challenges presented when working in a startup, as well as the opportunities to establish leadership and when you should outsource work to agencies to increase productivity.  We discuss the importance of transparency when entering a new marketing role, and how to advocate for resources to substantially improve the efficiency of your team's workflow.  Let's get started!  MINDSETS: Seeking Outside Validation - You have great ideas, but you need to back them up! Using examples of your proposal from outside sources, particularly ones that your CEO trusts, will gain their trust and afford you the opportunity to move your initiatives forward. Eliminating Risk - Risk affects both the buyer and the company. When purchasing a product or service, a buyer is seeking low risk and high reward. The same goes for the hiring process, ESPECIALLY when bringing in new executives. Eliminating or reducing the possibility right from the start can make for a much more rewarding experience. Knowing When to Outsource - The team you bring in depends on your company's biggest obstacles. You may not have every skill set on staff, and that's okay! Bringing in freelancers or gig workers while maintaining a high-level of quality is a cost-effective part of any startup's strategy.  Valuing Your Time - Never underestimate the amount of time Project Management takes. Checking in on project status, as well as updating people internally and externally, is a time consuming process that may take you away from physical work. The more people you bring in, the more time it will take to manage a project.  The “Figure It Out” Gene - Startups do not often have the space for workers to learn or grow on the job. Initiative in off-work hours, like taking the time to train, certify, or build something on your own that you may not have been asked to do in the workplace, will help you to build tangible and beneficial skills to bring to the workplace.  Keep ‘Em Satisfied - In the first 6-12 months of building a business, taking the time to figure out what's exciting to your team opens up opportunities to thrive in the work setting. Staying in tune with your team (like asking them how you can assist in overcoming roadblocks) will keep them satisfied and at your company for longer.  SKILLSETS: Recognizing Weak Spots - Hires need to be self-aware enough to know when they are capable of a new task, and when it's time to outsource. Even if your team hosts a particular skill set, ask yourself: is that the most efficient way for their time to be spent? Time Management - Are you tracking time, or do you trust your team to properly allocate their time to fit the needs of every project? With more remote jobs becoming available, proper time management plays a large component in your success with any company. As Carter puts it, “It'll come to light pretty quickly if you're not getting your stuff done.” Budgeting - When first interviewing for a marketing role, get a clear idea for the money that the team has to allocate time-intensive work to outsourced agencies. If a clear need isn't established, you run the risk of doing everything yourself.  Product Market Fit - Are the marketers in your organization able to explain what the company does? If not established, it will be VERY hard to explain that to the general public. Understanding what part of the “Product Market Fit” journey your organization is in helps to clearly establish the necessary workflows to make your efforts successful. Aligning Expectations - Establishing clear daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly stretch goals will help any marketer determine if initiatives are historically attainable, or if it's time to readjust the pipeline to e expectations.   TOOLSETS: Weekly Sales/Marketing Meeting  Ongoing Communication Lead Management/Nurturing Design Pickle Hubspot  RESULTS:As Carter puts it: “Marketing is NOT a silver bullet.” Marketing is a long-term investment that requires intention, transparency, and understanding. Some aspects of marketing are a long, slow burn that can take up to 6 months to see the benefits of. Being intentional and setting expectations from the start sets a very important foundation that leaves room for small wins along the way and big wins in time. A bit more about Carter:Carter is the VP of Marketing at Place, a software development agency which supports SaaS businesses using Salesforce with Subscription and Billing operations. For more than a decade, Carter has committed his career to helping B2B, SaaS, and growth-stage companies by running their growth and marketing initiatives, leading companies like BizNet Software, Creative cave and OneDay as a go-to marketing expert. Throughout his career, Carter has been noted for his from-scratch marketing and go-to-market strategies, as well as his revenue-focused leadership for high-growth companies.  Outside of work, Carter is an avid home chef, and has closely attributed the cooking process to the thought process he uses in marketing strategies: follow what works, and throw out what doesn't. Connect with Carter: https://www.linkedin.com/in/carter-severns/ https://www.linkedin.com/company/place-technology/ Connect with Mike & Gaby @ Proofpoint Marketing: Mike's LinkedIn Profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/mikegrinberg/ Gaby's LinkedIn Profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/gabriellaisrael/ LinkedIn Company Profile: https://www.linkedin.com/company/proofpoint-marketing-llc Proofpoint YouTube Channel: http://bit.ly/ProofpointonYouTube Proofpoint Marketing Website: www.proofpoint.marketing

In today's episode, Duane Dufault and Tim discuss the importance of looking at unit economics when growing a business. He explains that if unit economics are in the positive, and above industry standards, then the business is likely headed in the right direction. Dufault also says that businesses should focus on win rates, as this is an indicator of success. EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS:  0:00:03The Benefits of Focusing on Your Unit Economics0:00:50The Impact of Product Market Fit on Customer Churn0:02:13The Benefits of Product Data for Customer Success Managers0:04:05SellingSaas Podcast: Using Data to Drive Upsells and Improve Customer Health And so where at least we see value in kind of product data and some of the plays is good things and bad things. So on the good things front, if you see spikes in usage, spikes in spend, if you're a usage based billing company, things that are kind of inflecting in the right way, then that's when maybe someone on the CS or account management side can come in and say, hey, things are going well. Yeah, so we see a number of our customers using us on the customer success or account management side. And I think where we see less usage for us at least is on the more the size of the book that you just mentioned, 50 to 100.Well, most product like growth strategies that I've seen is all centered around go to market teams, growth, net new sales, and that type of stuff. But how does a CSM, let's say they've got a book of customers, they've got maybe 50 to 100 customers, and on the front end they were product led growth. So I always look at product usage and churn to kind of help me really pinpoint, do we have product market fit? Because you could have a low conversion, right? You could be an enterprise type software or mid market where you've got three SDRs to one account executive type of scenario. If you get value from this episode, be sure to subscribe and share the episode with your friends, as we all can benefit from more positivity and leadership in today's society. Go to www.SellingSaaspodcast.com to get episodes sent directly to your inbox and get the weekly newsletter.

Product Market Fit Mental Model Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing. Product market fit is a mental model that demonstrates your product meets the market's requirements.   It's a key milestone in the journey of the startup as it's the point of inflection for growth and later scale. Without product market fit the startup will most likely fail. A startup has achieved product market fit when demand outweighs the supply.  In other words, customers demand your product faster than you can provide it and you know why they want it. When you achieve product-market fit customers are spreading the word about your company. If you stop providing your product your customers have a real problem. When you don't yet have product market fit you can change the product, the market, the team, or the value proposition. Scaling before achieving product market leads to failure as you're increasing your costs before you have your revenue growth machine in place. Achieving product market fit is the primary goal of the early-stage startup.   Thank you for joining us for the Startup Funding Espresso where we help startups and investors connect for funding.Let's go startup something today. _______________________________________________________ For more episodes from Investor Connect, please visit the site at:   Check out our other podcasts here:   For Investors check out:   For Startups check out:   For eGuides check out:   For upcoming Events, check out    For Feedback please contact info@tencapital.group    Please , share, and leave a review.

For all startups, finding product-market fit is far from the end of the journey. In fact, product-market fit is when things only start to get interesting. But after achieving product-market fit, there are several key changes that all startups must make to get to the next stage of development. If those changes are made effectively, a startup can go from product-market fit to product-market dominance. On this week's episode of the Midstage Startup Momentum Podcast, startup coach Roland Siebelink reviews all of the necessary changes following product-market fit. Being proactive in making these changes once you're sure you've found product-market fit is what will make your startup attractive to investors and put you on the road to finding product-market dominance. Redefine your challenge to mastering distribution. Conquer your market by being able to capture latent demand. Design your product in a way that has automatic, no-brainer upgrades. Ensure healthy margins but don't yet optimize for profitability. Use marketing effectively to drive down the sales payback time.

Sometimes the best way to launch a digital subscription is to launch a physical subscription. Even if you plan to scale with a virtual business model, you can learn so much more about your customer, value proposition and messaging by starting the old fashioned way—in person. That’s the approach Zubin Bhettay used in launching Fuzzy. Today, Fuzzy’s Pet Parents get round the clock access to exceptional virtual veterinary care, as well as wellness products for their pets' health needs. But when Zubin and his cofounder launched the company in 2016, they recruited and served their Pet Parents in person. Starting slow allowed Fuzzy to “crack the Product Market Fit code” and scale rapidly, raising over $80 million in the process. Full disclosure—I’ve been involved with Fuzzy since the beginning, and think Fuzzy is one of the most thoughtful Membership Economy organizations I have ever worked with. In this conversation, Zubin and I reflect on Fuzzy’s humble beginnings in San Francisco dog parks and Pet Parent living rooms, explore the path to profitability, and discuss the right metrics at each stage. Excerpt: "We wanted to be the guide and partner of pet parents through every stage of their pet's life. We wanted to ensure that was available to every pet parent and not just a luxury service only available to the select few." Zubin Bhettay is the CEO and Co-Founder of Fuzzy, a telehealth subscription service offering virtual veterinary care. In this episode, he shares how their in-person company evolved into a digital platform, expanding their reach and saving a lot of pets in the process. Zubin explains the business scaling process they followed to fully embrace the digital scene and how to decide if a subscription model is ideal for you. Love the show?

How does that affect the user experience and user journey?How did you approach the trade-offs between building on centralized and decentralized APIs/components for the best user experience?

Have you ever looked at all of the reports, dashboards, and data presented across your company and felt overwhelmed and under-informed?Today's data-driven world far too often results in a lot of data but not better decision-making or company performance.Scott Stouffer founded his first company in 1993 and has lived the reality of how Go-to-Market Strategy is not a one-time thing, but a series of iterations over time. Scott compares today's need to continuously evolve your GTM strategy much as Agile did for software development. Basically an "Agile Go-to-Market" model.The above reduces the amount of investment wasted on strategies and tactics that never provide the required return. By definition, the majority of companies will not nail the Go-to-Market motion on the first try. Examples include identifying the top Ideal Customer Profile, creating the perfect messaging and positioning strategy, or even the best sales motion to engage, interest and acquire new customers.One key to successfully using an "agile" GTM model is to limit the number of new variables you introduce at any given time. One example Scott provided was an experiment that uses "new messaging" as the only new variable and measures how that performs as measured by activity to conversation to meeting to opportunities.A key to identifying which GTM motion is working is to ensure you instrument and measure the performance metrics that provide real market feedback on the efficacy of your GTM tactic(s). This applies not only when you first enter a market with a new product, but when you enter a new market with an existing product that was successful in a different market. The next topic we covered was the "DEFINING" moment in the podcast (11:40 in the podcast). Scott started with an analogy on how a cholesterol measurement of 50 is meaningless without context, but if you know the measurement was 45 six months ago AND the appropriate benchmark for the patient is 20-35 there is CONTEXT to the measurement (metric) and requires attention.Scott's point on "Go-To-Market Metrics Require Context" was defined by using one if not all of the following variables: 1. Time - how is the metric trending over time 2. Plan - how is the metric performing against the plan 3. Causality - what variable(s) impacts the metric 4. Significance - How does this impact our business 5. External Industry Benchmarks - how do I compare to the external marketAnother topic we discussed was WHEN and HOW to instrument your Go-To-Market systems to capture and then use the GTM metrics to inform decisions. Scott suggested that when a company moves beyond "Founder Led Growth" into Sales Led Growth is the time to instrument GTM metrics. One caveat was metrics become more instructive once Product Market Fit is established, and it is appropriate to scale Marketing and Sales investment.Growth efficiency, a trending topic in 2022 becomes more important once Product Market Fit is achieved and the investment in Marketing and Sales continues to increase..even in $1M - $5M ARR companies.If you are looking for ways to increase Go-to-Market efficiency and increase the value of metrics in decision-making, this conversation with Scott is amazingly informative for first-time founders and the most experienced GTM leaders.

Todd Jackson's back on the mic this week. (As a reminder, he's guest hosting a few product-focused episodes this season — all about finding product-market fit.) Today, Todd chats with Harry Ritter, founder of Alma, a membership-based network that helps independent mental health care providers accept insurance and build thriving private practices. In our conversation, we go deep into Alma's early days, and how they navigated the journey of finding traction and scaling.  As you'll hear in the episode, the Alma team essentially had to find product-market fit twice as they went from physical, co-working office spaces pre-pandemic, to quickly building out their virtual care capabilities. Here's a preview of what Todd and Harry cover: Approaching team building as a solo founder Refining the idea and getting more insights from your customers through structured interviews, using the technique doctors are trained on Rallying your team through a pivot Staying competitor aware — not competitor obsessed The difference between building a marketplace versus a platform.
