WEEK 3: CUSTOMER DEVELOPMENT & GROWTH HACKING

Workshop Overview:

Having early and initial insight from potential customers is not enough to build and launch a successful business. Oftentimes, the “shiny new ideas” begin to distort insights collected from potential users. To avoid this common pitfall, you will need a disciplined approach to achieving product-market fit from idea to launch. You will then need to build the audience for your product or service, with little to no budget. How will you do that?

This workshop will help you understand the tools and techniques to engage your customers and continually validate your product/service evolution across its life-cycle. You will also learn how to grow your customer-base in quick, lean, and cost-effective ways

Learning Objectives

  • What is customer development and how it is used
  • What are the types of prototypes used across the product/ service life-cycle
  • What is growth hacking and what is the AAARRR framework
  • How to design and run basic experiments to convert prospective customers into paid customers
