Benefits of product metrics

You need to select the right metrics to measure the success of the product or feature you're building.

Once selected, metrics help the product development in many ways:

  • They provide direction for the product development
  • They offer data to make better decisions
  • They help measure the impact of new features
  • They provide alignment across teams
  • They help identify problems

The right set of metrics

The right set of metrics

Answer these questions to find the right metrics for your product:

  • Primary output metric — When will you call your product a success or failure?
  • Input metrics — What milestones will your product hit before it becomes a success?
  • Check metrics — Are you screwing up other company metrics while building your product?
  • External dependent metrics — What external metrics outside of your control are required for your product to be a success?

Best practices for defining metrics

  • Define metrics in such a way that they are measurable and can be tracked on a regular basis
  • Define the increment in the metric that your product will bring: "Increase average session length from 5min to 8min"
  • Define the time period in which that metric will be achieved: "Increase survey completion rate from 2% to 5% within 3 months"

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
