👨‍🏫 Quote of the week

“Getting product right means finding product/market fit. It does not mean launching the product. It means getting to the point where the market accepts your product and wants more of it.”Fred Wilson

👨‍🔬 Things I’m experimenting with

This newsletter. All the time.

You may have noticed that I publish this newsletter via two separate platforms: Medium and Mailchimp. I also use different channels to distribute the publication every week, mainly social media (Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter) and the platforms themselves (Mailchimp as a mail list, Medium via my contacts network). I have been alternating the links I share on social media, pointing to either Medium or Mailchimp, and looking at several metrics; for example: traffic volumes, sources of traffic, links opened for Mailchimp, shares and likes for Medium, amount of new Mailchimp subscriptions or Medium followers with every post.

I have also been experimenting with the content. I have been looking at new and different sources of information, adding more / less news on certain topics, trying different tones of voice, changing the order of the sections, including more / less personal content, adding different types of content (e.g. videos and audio), etc.

The results are…not there yet. Unfortunately elproducto’s traffic is still quite low to get any meaningful learning (I will not even start talking about statistical significance). However, I have already noted few learnings and a couple of actions I want to take moving forward:

Small pains:

Happy times:

Moving forward:

Once again, especially if you made it until here, my most sincere thank you.
