The 9 Specific Things We Did To Build A $100M Business In 3 Years

The most impactful things we did in the early days at BigCommerce (2009–2012) to grow the company from nothing to a $100M valuation.

During an interview last week I was asked to talk about the most impactful things we did in the early days at BigCommerce (2009–2012) to grow the company from nothing to a $100M valuation during that time, so I thought I’d share my speaking notes here to help other founders on their journey.

Invest In Design As A Differentiator

  • Every business has some element of design that can be used as a competitive advantage to get new customers or employees
  • What is the first impression potential customers get when they experience your brand? (reception area, website, etc)
  • Think about your customer experience and how you can improve that with efficient design

Be Tied To Your Vision, But Not Your Approach

  • Be open to new ways of accomplishing a goal?—?even if those ideas aren’t yours
  • Look at what your competitors and companies in other industries are doing and apply what’s working to your business
  • “You can’t manage what you don’t measure”?—?if something is important, make sure it’s being measured

Not All Customers Are Created Equally

  • Understand who your “perfect customer” is
  • Reallocate your marketing budget to get your message in front of more people who look like your perfect customer
  • Team your team how to recognize (lead score) potential perfect customers and reach out to them first

Don’t Plan More Than 18 Months Out

  • If you’re growing fast, your company will be COMPLETELY DIFFERENT in 18 months from now
  • You will probably have to replace your leadership team more than once over the next few years?—?and that’s OK
  • Hire for where you want to take the company over the next 18 months?—?not 2/5/10 years

Don’t Rely On A Single Marketing Channel

  • Understand the pros and cons of different marketing channels, especially online
  • Get something working in one marketing channel and then test it across other marketing channels
  • If it works on other channels, split your budget between those channels so you’re not reliant on a single source of leads or customers

Bonus Your Team Based On Customer Success

  • The customer needs to be at the center of every decision your team makes, especially your leadership team
  • The best way to incentivize people is to tie a part of their bonus (50%) to a customer success metric
  • Net Promoter Score (NPS) has been the most effective for me?—?increased NPS from 12 to 65 in 18 months as a result
  • Start measuring your NPS using Drift
  • Set quarterly goals for your leadership team to increase your NPS from X to Y
  • Attribute 25%-50% of your leadership team’s compensation to a customer success metric such as NPS

Focus On Market Opportunity, Not Competitors

  • Don’t react or change your strategy based on a knee-jerk reaction to something a competitor does
  • If you focus on making your customers happier over time, the rest will take care of itself
  • Lead by example?—?obsess over your customers and teach your team to do the same

Listen To Your Gut When It Comes To Hiring

  • If your gut tells you not to hire someone and you can’t explain why, then don’t hire them
  • Back channel reference one of their previous bosses, peers and direct reports to get a real understanding of their character
  • Take them to dinner with their partner and see how they communicate with each other

You Can’t Be Everything To Everyone

  • If you have multiple products/services but no “break out hit” then focus on making one excellent in the short term
  • Figure out which of your products/services will help your customers the most and go “all in” on that at first
  • Determine which customer segment your product/service is best suited for and focus your marketing to appeal to them

What will IoT mean to most enterprises?

Interview of Mr Siddhartha Agarwal by Tom Haunert. (Oracle mag)

Eight zetabytes of data are coming from tens of millions of devices. Where are you going to put the data, and what are you going to do with it?

Siddhartha Agarwal, vice president of product management and strategy for Oracle Cloud Platform and Oracle Fusion Middleware, talked with Oracle Magazine about the Internet of Things (IoT), strategies for managing IoT data, and features of Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service that will put IoT data to work for you.

Oracle Magazine: The Internet of Things includes billions of information-gathering devices, but what will IoT mean to most enterprises?

Mr. Agarwal: While the early focus of IoT has been on consumer-driven use cases such as internet gadgets, smartwatches, and connected cars, enterprise verticals such as manufacturing, transportation and logistics, healthcare, and utilities will see a bigger and faster return on investment from IoT.

IoT will provide these business segments with more-valuable information about their products, how they perform, and how they are being used. This information will drive insights into what they need to support the development of new products, services, and business models. IoT in the enterprise is a broad space with incredible new opportunities for managing, analyzing, and acting on the volume, variety, and velocity of data being generated by various devices.

IoT for the enterprise also provides the ability to connect the operations technology [OT] world of systems technology residing on the manufacturing plant floor to the IT world of back-end business applications and processes. Manufacturing today is mostly driven by manual processes and reactive controls. When something goes wrong, that condition is typically detected by humans, who then fill out paperwork, which then gets manually entered into business applications to trigger a remedial workflow. IoT changes the current worlds of OT and IT by automating monitoring and control and efficiently bridging those worlds.


Oracle Magazine: What is Oracle’s IoT strategy?

Agarwal: Oracle looks at IoT from the business applications out instead of from edge devices in. Other vendors look at device connectivity, then apply some analytics and leave it to someone else to worry about integrating everything with business systems. The Oracle strategy is to help extend the reach of business applications to devices, get insights from these devices that can be leveraged to drive actions inside the business applications, and have these applications act securely upon the devices.

In addition, Oracle’s IoT strategy gives businesses the ability to build rich mobile front ends to drive actions in the field, such as process automation to kick off complex business processes across multiple apps, big data analytics on the data, and a secure interaction between business apps and the edge devices. This strategy is also enabling Oracle customers to get value from IoT in short bursts of three to four months rather than one big-bang-style 12- to 18-month IoT project.


Oracle Magazine: What is Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service?

Agarwal: Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service is a cloud-based, platform-as-a-service [PaaS] offering that enables customers to securely connect to any device generating data, perform real-time and predictive analytics on device data, and extend business processes within enterprise applications.

Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service delivers the ability to collect device data being streamed in very large volumes and make real-time decisions close to the edge. It also gives you a virtual representation of devices, so users can interact with devices without needing to know how to program them.

Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service also provides predictive analytics and pattern matching out of the box to enable real-time decisions on complex metrics. To extend the value of IoT data, Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service is also integrated with many other Oracle Cloud services, such as Oracle Business Intelligence Cloud Service, Oracle Mobile Cloud Service, and Oracle Integration Cloud Service.

And finally, Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service does an excellent job bridging that disconnect that I mentioned earlier between the OT and IT worlds with prebuilt integrations for both on-premises and SaaS [software as a service] applications such as Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle’s JD Edwards, Oracle Sales Cloud, and Oracle Service Cloud, as well as non-Oracle applications.

And because of the integration with Oracle PaaS, SaaS, and on-premises Oracle apps, Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service empowers companies to unlock even greater business value from the many Oracle technologies and applications they already rely on to run their businesses.
