Dear Entrepreneurs – Happy Diwali! [Cleanup The Mess]

It’s an Indian tradition to cleaup one’s house during Diwali – people do it inside out (white washing etc etc) and following the same trend, startups too need to clean up their house.

That is?

Features: P1>P2>P3..?

Many a times (actually most of the times), you end up deprioritizing some features who lose out to other important ones. They end up becoming a P2 feature – and eventually the list of P2s pile up and is generally lost in the entire (product) development cycle.

Bring back the list and ask yourself – which ones were really important? There are a certain P3/P4 requirements (like change the logo in company’s Facebook page, messaging changes etc.) which are generally lost in the ‘big scheme of things’.

Can one of those P3/P4 features make the product look more appealing? If yes, then do it.

Features: P3<P2<P1<Lean And Thin

This Diwali, remove junk from your existing feature set.  There are features that exist in your product which nobody knows of! Can you get rid of that junk?

Fire up your Google Analytics, track pages and cleanup the mess. The baggage of junk features, sometimes gets in the way of scaling and use Diwali as an excuse to cut the flab.

The Dog Food

Of course, the dog has to eat the dogfood and Pluggd.in will share the cleanup drive we are conducting on the site. There are few sections which were full of ‘junk’ and we have decided to cull them off. We are also coming up with improved UX in the coming days – so stay Pluggd.in!

And meanwhile, Pluggd.in team wishes Happy Diwali to all! Enjoy the firecrackers! Have a good time with your family.

And do tell us what mess are you cleaning today?

 

Happy Diwali from Pluggd.in Team
