Measuring Success: KPIs and Metrics for Evaluating Product-Market Fit | OpenGrowth

KPIs, or key performance indicators, are important because they are vital for assessing the effectiveness of teams and organizations in reaching their objectives.It will demonstrate to you whether you are making progress towards your objectives. With this it also guides you where you are making progress, and where you could be making mistakes in your methods. 

Micro and macro objectives are necessary if you're beginning a new marketing campaign to attract both new and current clients. This allows you to choose which goals are crucial and should be prioritized, as well as which are merely nice-to-haves that will essentially assist you in meeting the key ones. Let's discuss the metric for evaluating the product market fit!

Evaluating Product-Market Fit

Product adoption, sales facilitation, go-to-market efforts, and marketing support are, in general, the key areas of concentration for product marketing. We'll examine each of them in-depth along with a few indicators that may be used to gauge the success of product marketing. 

1. Facilitation of sales

Keep an eye on signups and your income growth rate. Are you selling your MVPs fast enough? Or are they occupying storage space? Sales that are increasing quickly may indicate that you've struck the goal, but they are not the ultimate measure.

Consider a SaaS (software as a service) offering. You would probably be more concerned with lifetime value, acquisition cost, and long-term client retention than you would be with the quick spike in signups. Customers who join up but withdraw after a month or two are unlikely to have a significant impact on the course of your business. 



2. Maintenance of customers

Customers who will remain with your product or service (even if there isn't a monthly commitment) are what you want, not simply one-time purchases. Devoted customers are more inclined to recommend your products to friends, family, and coworkers, as well as purchase more items or alternatives that your firm offers.

While it is ideal for consumers to remain loyal, product-market fit may be verified without them. Instead, figure out how long a client must stay with the good (on average) to improve the likelihood that they will recommend it to a friend and offset your cost per acquisition.  Besides this you should also know about the role of branding in enhancing product market fit.

3. Importance of a customer 

Customer lifetime value, or CLV, calculates the total amount of money you should anticipate earning from just one client. You may only anticipate making one sale per customer if you offer more costly, durable goods (like a home or car).

If you provide smaller products or services, like recurring payments, you want your customers to keep coming back to you, which will raise the CLV. To gain further insight into your product's fit with the market, use CLV. Customers who remain loyal to your goods and services are probably a good fit, and you should think about growing your business.

4. Demand

Sustainably high demand growth is a positive sign of fit between product and market. Demand demonstrates a higher level of deliberate interest than impressions, shares, and likes. Use variables such as the following to gauge demand: 

  • Backers of patreon
  • MVP registrations
  • Early orders for birds
  • Lists of waiters
  • User expansion
  • A rise in usage 

These signs show that there is a market for your goods, and you'll probably need to grow to meet demand.



5. Initiation

Activation gauges how your product is perceived by customers right away. After new users sign up for your subscription's free seven-day trial, do they use it right away or do they sign up for a premium account right away after the trial period expires?

Low activation rates may just signal that you need to enhance the onboarding process or offer alternative price alternatives rather than a sign of a poor product-market fit. Think about going over your value proposition again and the way you explain it to your intended audience. 

6. Traffic

Have you seen more people visiting your price, product, or particular home pages? Traffic is a baseline metric; what you want to see are activities such as payments made with credit cards, account promotions, and signups.

Nonetheless, it's a useful indicator to keep an eye on early on to see whether the market is responding favorably to your offering. To gauge the success of your marketing, compare your traffic figures to conversion rates. You may only need to refresh the homepage or enhance the wording and message if your product-market fit is ideal. 

7. Influencer reviews

Bloggers in neighborhoods have great power. What comments do they make regarding your products or service? If they don't like what they're experiencing, they'll probably tell their audience about it, which will hinder the growth of your firm. 

8. Product review

What are the first impressions of your product? Look at the comments rather than the stars or the statistics. Determine the preferences of your clientele and make the necessary adjustments early on to enhance your goods or services.

Negative first product reviews don't always indicate that a product will fail. It just implies that before scaling, more optimisations could be required. Beside this, you should also know about the significance of product development road map to reflect the vision and direction of the product in the development process. 

In a nutshell, we can say that everything becomes simpler once you're in the right fit: achieving that triple-digit growth, obtaining recurrent revenue, increasing product usage, obtaining renewals, raising money, gaining media attention, and recruiting staff. It's common to mistake product market fit for traction. 

A few goods achieve product-market fit, even though many get traction. Product market fit can result from traction, however, traction is frequently only temporary, incidental success, driven by elements that are either replicable or typical of the larger market. Perhaps your creator has a lot of business contacts and can convince ten of his friends to purchase the product. 

Well you have a great sales maverick on staff who can pitch the product's purpose before the actual value. Perhaps you generated interest in the topic from the market and brought in innovative funding.
