Simple is Marketable | Andrew Chen (@andrewchen)
When a product isn’t working, often the knee-jerk response is to “fully bake” the product by adding more features. However, I’ve found that when examining the data of new startups, the problem most often lies on the first couple pages of a product- often an unattractive value proposition, or clunky signup flow that kills the new user experience. Adding metrics to simple products often makes it clear exactly what’s going on, and most of the time, it’s a fundamental issue that needs to be fixed on the first page.

In this way, simple products with the “right” value prop will end up with better signup rates- this lets you put your attention on top-of-funnel issues rather than low-impact feature add-ons that won’t 10x the destiny of your product.
