MORE IDEAS FROM How to Identify Your Product's Aha Moment

Look at the customer behavior of both your good and bad customers. Doing this will help you to identify successful user journeys.

Follow the 5-step process

  1. Put a list together of all your product's features.
  2. Pick a list of your most successful customers and analyze what features they used early on, continue to use regularly, and stopped/didn't use.
  3. Write down what features got adapted and didn't.
  4. You need to find the behaviors that, when performed, best correlate with continuing to use your product for an extended period of time.
  5. You want to lead with the features that get people to upgrade.

Three things happen when you (or a user) "feels" an aha moment:

  1. You understand exactly how a product can help you.
  2. You experience the core value of a product.
  3. You’ve achieved something very quickly that might have taken you hours previously.

What aha moments look like in real life, for real companies.

  • Using the product several times in the first week.

They are the ones who become amazing at whatever it is that your product enables them to do.

Your mission when speaking to such users is to identify what a success story looks like for this type of user. The easiest way to contact them is via email.

Also, talk to your churned users to identify the value gap (discrepancy between what a customer expects from the product and the value received or perceived)

The gap could be due to the customer not understanding the product’s capabilities or how to use it, negative mental or emotive response to the product, or friction.

Product Managers (PM) are responsible for the growth of the product from the start. If the product fails, the PM takes full responsibility. To ensure a successful outcome, PMs need to spend a lot of time with their product to make it valuable for its users.

User Onboarding: The Great First Impression

Like the early stages of a burgeoning relationship, multiple steps shape the outcome and determine whether the relationship between you and the user will be a wild success, an unremarkable encounter or a dismal failure.

The goal of onboarding isn’t to show new users where features are. Instead, it’s to guide users towards their “aha” moment, the moment of delight where the value of your product becomes immediately clear.

The product-led flywheel

The product-led flywheel is a framework that promotes product-led growth. It focuses on the user experience at the various stages of the user's journey.

  • On the inner circle of your flywheel, imagine the different segments of your users based on where they are in their product journey. For example, product qualified leads, customers, active customers, loyal customers.
  • On the outer layer of your flywheel are the different stages of product growth: Onboarding, adoption, retention, and growth.
