It's not easy to grow a company

There are a number of different challenges companies face when scaling.

Lots of teams can spend time winging it when it comes to marketing and growth.

They end up making expensive mistakes and spend ages learning through trial and error.

Here's how a weak growth strategy costs companies:

Takes longer to become profitable

The growth at all costs approach is gone. Companies need to tighten their belts and work on getting to profitability. This requires a focus on optimising the user journey, increasing revenue from existing customers and making better, data-driven decisions.

High Churn

It's expensive to acquire a customer. Good companies focus on acquisition. Great companies focus on retention. If you don't consistently provide value to existing customers, they will leave. You need to wow them early in their experience and keep helping them to achieve their goals.

Waste money on ads

Companies who spend on ads but send traffic to a product that doesn't convert are wasting money.
Ads become less profitable and you waste time optimising the wrong part of funnel. Ads are an amazing tool when used properly. But without the right testing and process, you can end up bleeding money.

Low conversion rates

Poor conversion is often a symptom of poor positioning and messaging. You need to be define a clear position in the market and experiment to figure out what is working or not. This involves a strong experimentation mindset and a willingness to learn. This is hard to get without the right systems in place.

  • New users sign up and leave  

  • Built new features that users don’t see

  • Free to paid conversion rates are low

  • Churn is high and don't have a clear plan to fix it

  • Onboarding falls through the cracks and no one is focus on it

  • Don’t have budget to hire an expensive consultant

It's hard to get new users to see the core value of your product.

Here are some of the challenges facing teams right now - some might be familiar:

What teams have said:

Reduced Customer Acquisition Cost (CAC) by 30%

We were testing on a number of different channels without clear direction. We had started to experiment with messaging but hadn’t figured it out.

After working together with Theo, we had a better picture of what to focus on, what messaging would work for our audience and what next steps to take.
