There are many gaps within companies; gaps between marketing and sales, gaps to getting marketing programs running or resource gaps, gaps between product and market fit, gaps for product habituation, gaps in freemium models, and gaps in conversion of leads just to name a few.  All of these gaps often times will appear to be uncross-able "chasms" without [...]

Make the PURFECT decision

By | March 5th, 2014|Advocates, Campaigns, Community, Conversions, Profiles, Promotions, Simple Tricks, split test|Comments Off on Make the PURFECT decision

Not making a decision is a decision. If you always wait for perfection before taking action then you will never do anything.  Making a non-decision is great as well -  instead of hiding tell some folks - don't turn yellow, have some courage.  People learn from data and without the data (from the decision or [...]

Dear vendor, you’re not in control.

Gutenberg’s printing press created a sea change. His press allowed books to be produced in large numbers which forced some additional changes to occur. The press allowed increases in the number of words that could be used and additional words increased the total amount of content that could be communicated. As the press became commoditized [...]
