I really don't get the hype around web3. (I was around for the advent of the web and and "web 2.0" and was excited about both) If you're a web3 believer, what's compelling about it for you?

I used to invest heavily in marketing automation, tracking, attribution, configuring funnels, and retargeting. But after 13 years of doing marketing for SaaS companies... I'm convinced that 90% of it is unnecessary.

@levelsio Lol. Am I that old to you? 😜 I'm open to web3 being the next big thing, but I have some reasonable concerns: - do we really want total decentralization? what are the knock on effects of that? - are we committing ourselves to a system that will accelerate the climate crisis?

Too many indie entrepreneurs are building things that people don't want. As an indie, you don't have the time or money to "create demand." Tip: just look for opportunities where people are already in motion. What are people already searching for and buying? Build for that. 🎯

When people get deathly ill, they don’t get treatment from their pastor, politician, Nicki Minaj, Joe Rogan, or Bret Weinstein. They go to the hospital. They seek out doctors because, deep down, they know that medical expertise (based on science) is their best chance at life.

The worst products require MORE marketing; more convincing, more funnels, more drip campaigns, more manipulation. For indie entrepreneurs, the best products are the products people already want to buy. It shouldn't take a bunch of effort to convince them. ✌️

Doing my business' year-end with my accountant. Big realization: "To simplify your accounting, minimize the number of transactions!" ✅ If you can pay for it annually, do it. ✅ Get your Stripe payments once a month/quarterly. ✅ Minimize # of payments. ✅ Use fewer accounts.

The true test of any idea, opinion, or strategy is longitudinal: measuring the variables that matter over decades. We often take tactical cues from other people, but you won't know their results until time has passed. It might seem like a good idea now; but not later.

Capital is not neutral! Money has influence; it introduces a power dynamic that many VCs exploit. Michael is using a faulty analogy. VCs don't just use "words" to influence you; they have real leverage over founders as soon as they invest.

I used to question everything. Religion, in particular, gave me false-confidence. I believed I could be an expert on everything. It was egotism; an "exaggerated opinion of my own importance." It took time, but through gradual correction, I realized how wrong my beliefs were.

Idolizing individual thinkers, scientists, entrepreneurs, celebrities is a real threat to the progress of knowledge because all individuals are prone to bad thinking. People who have a large cult-like following can distort knowledge, and distract from the scientific process.

@einarvollset @Shpigford "Dire" doesn't have to mean imminent.

It means "this is serious," "this is a threat," "this is a sign or warning that something bad could happen."

What’s great about science is that every claim has to be evaluated and independently replicated, multiple times. Science doesn’t care about the “cult of the individual.” It doesn’t matter how well-known/popular an expert is. You can’t make a claim based on reputation alone.

There's a strong distinction between: ❌ "individual beliefs that are reinforced by your group" ✅ "having your beliefs, ideas, and claims scrutinized and vetted by others." This is what Helen Longino, philosopher of science, calls "transformative criticism."

In a healthy society, we need to identify and challenge power dynamics. It's not OK for VCs to put all of the onus on the entrepreneur. These structures can be fixed. Power can be re-balanced. But not if VCs wash their hands of all responsibility.

I'm not discounting the skills, connections, experience, resources, creativity, insights, and effort it takes to be successful. Those are "necessary, but not sufficient." You need strong, underlying customer demand (like water flowing down a river) to make a business work.

In order to track Stripe transactions in Google Analytics, you need to send the customer back to a “thank you” page on your site, so Google’s tracking script can work. There are tons of problems with this approach. support.google.com/grants/answer/… pic.twitter.com/tfiC6lnKY8

@_rchase_ @getRewardful @usefathom My guess is Rewardful will make this a core part of the platform moving forward. They actually don’t need to build anything else for this to work: it’s all right there. It’s the simplest way to attribute marketing campaigns with SaaS revenue.

A truth about urban design: most of the truly great cities are old. Why? It takes many iterations, and hundreds of years of culture, to shape a great town.

Money has strings attached, but not all capital comes with the same strings. 😉 The underlying structure of the relationship (the incentives, the governance, who controls the money, who has the social influence) will determine "how good of a deal" you get as an entrepreneur.

Yes! VCs: start by acknowledge that you *do* have influence on the founders and startups you invest in (don't pretend it doesn't exist). You can't have a healthy relationship if one party abdicates all of their responsibility from the get-go. twitter.com/chrismessina/s…

@chrisfosterelli @mwseibel In a healthy society, we need to identify and challenge power dynamics. It's not OK for VCs to put all of the onus on the entrepreneur. These structures can be fixed. Power can be re-balanced. But not if VCs wash their hands of all responsibility.

I'm confirming my own biases here, but I think I'm going to stop doing demos. Why? Supporting enterprise customers would require us to massively change our company (hire more folks) and our product (build iOS / Android apps, add SSO). Plus: I don't think the upside is there.

The challenge (for SaaS) is that the underlying desire has to be strong enough to consistently overcome inertia (month after month). Some interesting nuance: With web hosting, you generally only need to convince them once. Once the site is up, they'll pay for a long time.

There’s probably not much you can do inside your product to motivate people to use it more. People have to feel that pull themselves; they’re being motivated by a consistent problem or desire in their lives.

It's fairly normal for folks in their 20s, newly independent from their parents, to explore their individualism. They're deciding "this is what I believe." An important step, at that stage, is to be challenged by professors, mentors, peers: "How do you know that's true?"
