Eamonn Grant - Survey Results  - Growth Hackers Dublin #3

Recorded 5th June 2014. Growth Hackers Dublin in the Irish Times, Tara Street, Dublin.

The Next event Growth Hackers Dublin Meetup July 10th. [ http://t9.ie/ghack4vd ]

One of the things we did do is we sent out a survey to our customers. We did this for multiple businesses that we own. We did this for Flowers Made Easy, we did it for Wholesale, and we did it for several other things. What was interesting was what we didn't realize before that. And just to give you an idea from the Flowers Made Easy side, the Flowers Made Easy number was still above that number you want, about 60%. If you hit 60%, you're a legend. If you hit 40%, you should keep going, fix it, tweak it, and get it going up.

Product Market Fit - Eamonn Grant - Growth Hackers Dublin #3

The next thing I wanted to quickly talk to you about was the Wholesale Flower. We also have a Wholesale Flower business. One of the things that we did here was we wanted to talk about product/market fit. We launched this site. We spent about four days taking the Flowers Made Easy site and converting it into the Wholesale Flower site. We spent about 2,000 on product and we stuck it on shelves in the corner and we sold 3,000 worth of product in 12 months, so not very successful but we had loads of data.

Dealing With Protective Brands & Their Fear Of Digital

So I've got a job with probably one of the best brands in the world. In fairness to the AA, they really are, and voted most trusted brand in the UK only a couple of months ago. And I knew what was getting into. And so the problem with a perfect brand is that they're scared. They're very scared. They're scared of people like me and you because it's a 102-year-old business, and they've always done things the way they've done things, and they're trusted, and they have no Facebook page because of trust. You can't have a Facebook page so we could complain. Wouldn't that be terrible?

Blogger Twitter Whatever, September 22nd 2011

Posted by Jason Roe on Aug 19, 2011 9:20:51 AM

Its been April since our last meetup (I've been working flat out!).. so as part of the latest round of ad-hoc meet-ups in Dublin (Ireland) .. we decided to run another Blogger-Twitter-Whatever (BTW) meetup.

The plan is to meet up 7pm on Thursday 22nd September in Rúta, King St North, Dublin.  There will be food, drinks (free pints of the black stuff) and well .. whatever!

The meetup is quite informal, there is no agenda and no presentations. People just meet up, chat, (some people) network and everyone has a good time! It would be great if you could invite some friends to register. :P more the merrier!  I'd really appreciate if everyone could give BTW meetup a big push!

Week in review..

Posted by Jason Roe on Oct 31, 2010 12:50:03 PM

Monday 25th, Louise and myself headed down to Cork for the long weekend. We ended up popping into her brother who is building a new house. It's a bit weird watching a house being built, the last time we were down there was just a steel frame and some foundation. It seemed like the whole house was almost there this time. The house is timber frame and is built on stilts.. its a metal frame that is 3 feet off the ground. I was poking round online looking for something behind a UK only wall and I was directed to expatshield check it out.
