Growth Experiments
Content Marketing, Finance, Professional, Startup

All companies must deal with uncertainty when it comes to growing at a continuous (and sustainable) rate. Growth experiments are the key to identifying what works and what doesn’t on a much smaller scale without having to commit all resources to a single growth path. With these growth experiments comes the need to keep an eye on key metrics, such as the number of new users and the amount of money spent on the experiment. This template does it all. You can track revenue from new and existing customers participating in the growth experiment, the total amount spent on on the experiment, and the number of new users interested in the experiment. The template organizes all the data in a clear, easy to understand manner that fuel strategic decisions, while also identifying which efforts keep existing customers happy and involved.

Growth experiments are a solid way for a company to figure out the best way to reach and market to their target audience. They have generally lower overhead costs and require less work than a resource-heavy campaign. Key metrics such as number of new customers as well as money spent are useful pieces of information that businesses use when determining in which direction the company should expand. This template organizes the growth experiment process, partnerships, customers new and existing, and so much more to provide a clear overview of all growth experiments. Learn more about about this template by taking a look around at the tables and their functionality below:
