Get back to work.” The name doesn’t matter, the path to this moment is what we are after and that’s the topic up for discussion today. How do you reach the “A-HA moment” in your business? Curious to find out? Continue reading.

Putting it in very simple and clear terms, the path to finding the magical moment in business stems from discovering your core product value. Let’s go deeper.

What is Your Core Product Value?

This is the essence of your service or product. Without the core product value, it is impossible to convert guests to customers. Identifying your product value is what can help you gain 500 million users in record time. In fact, it has been observed that a company that has discovered its core product value will outperform others in fund-raising ventures.

In summary, the core product value is much more than the practical value in that it satisfies the 6 inherent needs of the customers. These needs are;

  1. Certainty
  2. Surprise/spontaneity
  3. Premium feel
  4. A sense of community
  5. Growth
  6. Impactful contribution

These definitions might suffice for some while others might want practical examples. We got you covered. Below, we discuss the path some of the successful companies took to discover their core product value and how they got to their “A-HA moment”.

Facebook and Its Core Product Value

As Mark said in his speech to the Harvard graduating class of 2017, Facebook’s aim is to connect the world. And they didn’t need to start on a grand level. In fact, the a-ha moment for them was being able to get a user to connect with 7 friends within 10 days.

This was a perfect merger of product and growth in that they were building their core value while getting the largest target audience to experience it.

Twitter and Its A-ha Moment

Hear what Josh Elman, an employee at Twitter had to say on the company’s core product value.

“At Twitter, we found that if you visited Twitter at least 7 times in a month, then it was likely you were going to be visiting Twitter in the next month, and the next month, and the next month. And we decided this was enough initially to be “really using it”.

There you have it, the aim was to get the user to experience their awesome service at least 7 times, and then, boom!

Uber and Its A-ha Moment

Uber has a slogan; “my own private driver” and they have succeeded in selling this story to people all over the world. Imagine you just finished a business meeting, you pull out your phone, push a button, and within minutes, your ride shows up. Did you just say A-ha?!
