anyone else in transportation? I am interested to know if you used a professional marketing service? Or if you hired someone to do marketing? I am struggling to show how my service is better than the competition.

Comments

  1. Is it clear to yourself how your service is better than the competition? I think that should be the real starting point here.

https://hbr.org/2017/08/tesla-shows-how-traditional-business-metrics-are-outdated?utm_campaign=hbr&utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social

An interesting take on market penetration and market share and how these traditional metrics might be part of the problem for incumbents missing out on opportunities. Think about Kodak, Yahoo, and Friendster. It doesn't paint the whole picture but gives some things to think about.

"Transaction data tells you what people bought, not what they want — and sales are not the same as demand."

"Category creators are changing the world — and our metrics need to keep up."

I am struggling to market my services to a wider audience. I have a core group of clients but I want to expand. Marketing is not my focus. Any advice?

Comments

  1. You could try using Facebook ads. They are cheap and effective.

Everyone thinks that they are growth hacking. It's not something new. It has been around for ages!

Comments

  1. Growth hacking in a buzz term. Everyone uses it but its really just about marketing. it's most just about doing things that aren't normal with normal marketing strategy to speed up your business growth.

  2. here this is what wikipedia says. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Growth_hacking

I am also curious about managing my data. I am also interested to know where to go to find out how other startups in my sector are performing and where they are getting their early stage funding. Is there a site that tracks funders and who they fund?

Comments

  1. Have you used google analytics? It is very simple for managing data.

  2. Oh thanks! I will test it out. Is it free? Or do I need to pay for it to use it for my business?

  3. To know what the others are doing is difficult. This is not usually public info. You would have to search one by one I guess. They usually have some sort of press release or something. You could also check out well known funders in your country and see on their website who they fund.

What is the best and cheapest way to track the traffic coming through my website? How do you guys manage the data coming in?

Comments

  1. I am going to try google analytics. But I am trying to research other options. A lot of services are very expensive.

My parents don't really like me running a startup. How do your parents feel about it?

Comments

Show earlier comments
  1. Ya mine don't like it either. But I am dedicated. Does anyone receive help from their parents?

  2. I used to but don't anymore. I never felt bad about receiving help from them. A lot of people do. They just don't talk about it.

  3. My parents think I should get a real job. They don't believe in my idea so they don't support me. It can be really tough.

  4. My parents like it, but they also don't understand why I would choose to work in a field where I won't see profits for a long time. I guess they just don't understand.

Hi, thanks for the great work.
Are there any poultry farmers that can share how they minimise the use of antibiotics on their farms.

I have two different mentors but they sometimes give me opposing advice? What should I do? Keep both or decide to go with only 1?

Comments

  1. Ya, is it good to have more than one mentor? Like a business mentor and a personal one? I am thinking about offering this to the kids in my organization but not sure it's a good idea.

  2. I currently work with one mentor who is helping me to work in the local communities where they utilize my services. He is part of that community and provides inside knowledge. he is also a local businessman. I don't know if I would want two coaches but maybe someone to help me develop the more technical or management related aspects of my business would be nice. What I mean is I would make sure they help you in different ways and don't overlap. That might make your life more complicated and that's not the point.

What are the best ways to build connections in the media to help sell my product and possibly even attract investors?

Comments

  1. Relationships with the media take time, you have to figure out who are the right people in the media to contact, and then approach them only when you have something really interesting for them. Do not just approach them with random info. Also it helps if you give them exclusive info, something only they can publish. Hope that helps :)
