In our endless chase of objectivity & numbers in product work, it is quite easy to miss that almost every product we use & love was created due to a subjective insight followed by a creative leap by one person (or a tiny team), and then followed by even more creative execution.
I chatted with early @airtable employee and angel investor @edavidpeterson about the current state of product-led growth. He shared some awesome insights into how today's best SaaS companies are learning from the challenges faced by @Dropbox, @SlackHQ and other early PLG co's👇 pic.twitter.com/AyFUWQcyc6
- Adopters are not necessarily buyers, complicating the sales process
- Layering on sales once you’re growing quickly can create toxic politics
- Simple PLG product design doesn’t align with enterprise customer needs
Working on a solo project, it's so refreshing to be able to just decide that some "tiny UX detail" really matters, and to spend unreasonable effort on it Often hard to justify this kind of decision on a team, even a high-functioning one where people understand design
Great designers are strong at "product thinking." This is a key aspect of many design interviews, as well as many PM or VC ones. But what exactly is product thinking? And how does one get good at it? Thread below 👇
To have good instincts about what makes a product beloved, you generally have...
- Curiosity about how people think and behave
- Understanding of why various products are popular/unpopular
- A habit of analyzing new products
- An eye for seeing good/bad user experiences
