This is part four of our Startup Quick Start series for helping entrepreneurs launch their next startup.
Ever read those TechCrunch articles and think to yourself: “damn, how’d they get their idea to be so successful?”. Well, you’re not alone.
Fakestudies.com claims 9 in every 10 founders feel the same way. But there’s a way we can fix that. And it’s called P.L.A.N.N.I.N.G.
It’s the unsexy behind-the-scenes work that makes startup ideas pop. It’s also the venus flytrap system that helps you capture every. single. piece. of. feedback. 🌵
We’ll break it down for you:
P - Purchase a domain on godaddy.com
L - Build out a simple Landing Page (like this) that shares your why.
A - With your domain and landing page, start Analyzing leads that come in
N - You do this by starting a Newsletter/Email Collection system to track interest
N - Now that you’ve got the system in place, start Nudging some friends/family to signup
I - If you want deeper questions answered, Initiate a Survey and send it to your top fans
N - Don’t forget to take a break and Nurture the leads that come in. Ask them q’s, say hello.
G - With your co-founder or on your own, set and track OKR Goals to ensure the plan’s helpful
After you’ve finished some of these steps, post a progress update on Kernal. An automated email will get sent to everyone that’s up-voted your startup idea to keep them in the loop.
So there you go. That’s your roadmap for today. Pick a couple or try to do them all. But at the end of the day, make sure you have a plan to get the job done.
The devil may be in the details, but you’ll be tempting Angel investors when you’ve got your plan in place. 😇
