Value In Numbers

Value In Numbers

  • Doing something people find valuable should be able to push your metric scores up, as a by-product. This is the real-world proof of quality in this age.
  • Similarly, if we do something, and the metrics go down, it’s a clear indication the action was wrong, no matter how right it seemed.
  • Numbers speak and provide a clear and tangible ‘score’ to rally a team around.

Pitfalls Of Metrics

Just like statistics, anything with numbers can be selective honesty.

  1. If the click-through-rate or the percentage of people clicking on your ad is increased, does it mean better earnings? It won’t work if the ad is just a false click-bait.
  2. If people spend less time on your app, does it mean it is a failure? That can also mean it gets the job done fast, and depends on what your app is supposed to do.
  3. Certain metrics provide information that is irrelevant or disposable, wasting our time.

Things That Cannot Be Measured

Certain things cannot be measured just by the number of likes and shares.

The way a product is designed, how simple and intuitive it is, the consumers trust in the product, their love and hate towards it, how they interact with other products, and how they use it as time passes.

When Metrics Fail

  • Adding new features makes the metrics go up, but it fails when we keep adding newer features, making the application bloated.
  • The brand power, of big brands like Apple or Nike, is hard to track on mere numbers, and the goodwill or trust they enjoy due to their past work is hard to put down in metric numbers.
  • Current behaviour cannot accurately predict future behaviour due to the inherent complexity and unpredictability of where technology and consumer preference goes.

Rules For Great Metrics

  1. Use retention as a way to assess your market-product fit, as it tells you how valuable the customers find your product after they stop using it.
  2. Understand the steps your customers have to take to get to your product, and if you can eliminate extra steps.
  3. Focus on key data, and do not waste time on unimportant metrics.
  4. Ask yourself what information you want from the customers to increase sales.
  5. Understand the metric goals clearly, not just on face value.
  6. Use counter-metrics to stress-test your figures.
  7. Pair your hard data with qualitative research like usability testing, focus groups and surveys.

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.

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

Sean Green

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

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!

Jamyson Haug

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

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!

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.

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.
