Startup recommendation tends to be a lot of platitudes repackaged with new buzzwords, however, Traction (Audiobook) is entirely something else.
As Gabriel Weinberg and Justin Mares realized from their own experiences, building a profitable firm is tough. For every startup that grows to the point where it may go public or be profitably acquired, thousands of others sputter and die.
Smart entrepreneurs know that the key to success isn’t the originality of your offering, the brilliance of your team, or how much cash you raise. It’s how consistently you’ll be able to grow and acquire new clients (or, for a free service, users). That’s known as traction, and it makes everything else simpler—fund-raising, acquisitions, partnerships, press, hiring, etc
Talk is cheap, but traction is hard evidence that you are on the correct path.
The audiobook Traction: How Any Startup Can Achieve Explosive Customer Growth will teach you the 19 channels you should use to construct a customer base, and pick the best ones for your enterprise. It draws on interviews with more than 40 successful founders, including Dharmesh Shah, Paul English, Jimmy Wales, and Alexis Ohanian. You will learn, for example, tips on how to:
- Get targeted media coverage that may help you reach more prospects
- Enhance your search engine rankings and advertising via online tools and research
- Find and use offline adverts and other channels your competitors probably aren’t utilizing
- Boost the effectiveness of your e-mail marketing campaigns by automating staggered sets of prompts and updates
Mares and Weinberg know that there’s no one-size-fits-all answer; each startup faces distinctive challenges and will benefit from a mix of these 19 traction channels. They provide a 3-step framework (known as Bullseye) to figure out which ones will work best for your enterprise. However, regardless of how you apply them, the teachings and examples in Traction will assist you to create and maintain the growth your business desperately needs.
