Here’s some of what I’ve been reading the last couple days…
- PandoDaily: As Manhattan went dark, Squarespace fought like hell to stay online – I love this story. It shows how the Squarespace team really banded together to keep their service online in spite of Hurricane Sandy, when most NYC-based online services went offline. This is REAL dedication. So cool!
- GigaOm: Buffer bucks the startup secrecy trend as it finds growth – It’s so cool to see a startup be transparent about the metrics that really matter… revenue!
- GigaOm: Pinterest CEO: We’re competing to keep your attention – Even the hottest startups, like Pinterest, have to fight to keep your attention. I like what the Pinterest CEO Ben said, “Every one of your experiences has to feel good. Every month, it has to be more than a passing novelty. If they don’t feel like it gives anything to them, they’ll crowd it out.”
- Richard Price: Growth hacking: leading indicators of engaged users – Great post talking about the importance of figuring out what metric indicates that someone’s going to become an engaged user. There’s lost of examples from popular companies.
