Supply Growth - Network Plays Playbook: Use Existing Networks to Jumpstart Supply Growth & Solve the "Cold Start" Problem

1 rating

This playbook is FREE (for now!). How do you get it for free? Just put a 0 into the "Name a fair price" field and hit "I want this."

Learn the play-by-play system to use existing networks to jumpstart supply growth and solve the “cold start” problem

I call these Network Plays (Where can we currently find our target supply?)

The concept here is that you grow on top of a pre-existing network.

For example, early on:

→ Airbnb grew on top of Craigslist.

→ PayPal grew on top of eBay.

Find the places people currently hang out or find what you are offering.

Then determine if you can “cherry-pick” from that network.

If you do this right, you can convince their existing demand/supply to switch.

Who this playbook is for:

  • Startup founders and operators
  • People leaders scaling startup teams
  • Employees at growing startups

You'll learn:

✔️ How to build your supply when there is no demand (and vice versa)

✔️ How to solve the marketplace "chicken or the egg" dilemma

✔️ The 6 Networking Plays and the step-by-step guides to run each play at your marketplace startup

✔️ The exact play I ran at my crowdfunding marketplace startup to acquire our first users

✔️ The fan favorite: 🍩 Operation Donut Hole Play

✔️ To streamline and scale your supply growth channels early on

✔️ How to get more of your target supply from channels you haven't explored yet

✔️ The 4 Pro Tips to get the most out of each Network Play

✔️ How to acquire more supply without increasing CAC
