Cohort Feedback @April 18, 2024

  • Deep
    • Personalize for financial maturity
    • Track progress and gamify further
    • How critical is the social aspect? Knowing how you’re friends are doing, finding users etc.
    • What age group? Would budgeting support / app will be more useful than portfolio if this is for teens?
  • Community / Course / Bootcamp etc.
  • I was thinking for Yoda targeting group of people who have money to throw at problems. I think what your mvp should do is provide early value that not only markets but signifies the value of a service behind a gated community or of a service that is exclusive and bespoke.
  • Marketing & revenue - trivia shorts on tiktok, youtube
  • Personalized AI advisor services sound promising for monetization. Maybe trivia section could be social content and app is the advisor?
  • I think trying to build trust with the users with the AI assistant, (how can users be sure to trust the advise)
  • how to use canva to create quick trivia shorts
  • Jakob
    • Giv me a link to a few simple budgets.
    • Show me some tips. Fx. most people have one account where their salary goes in to. They also have their savings on this account and the fixed and variable costs coming out of this one. Why dont you suggests some "tricks to the trade" of structuring your bank account. Have a savings account. Have an account for sneakers. An account that will allow me to invest. Perhaps, set a goal of what you want to invest in.
    • Etc. Your beehive newsletter should also give me bitesized tricks on how to better my personal finances.

Additional Tools and Integrations — OPTIONAL

Analytics and User Feedback

Consider integrating analytics tools (e.g., Google Analytics, Mixpanel) for tracking user engagement and feedback tools (e.g., Hotjar, Typeform) for direct user insights.

Analytics Tool Integration

  • Objective: Capture comprehensive data on user interactions, engagement patterns, and app performance.
  • Actions:
    • Choose an Analytics Platform: Depending on your specific needs, Google Analytics offers broad capabilities and is widely used, while Mixpanel provides more detailed event tracking and user segmentation features. Evaluate both against your requirements.
    • Set Up Tracking: Implement the chosen analytics tool within your app. For Google Analytics, use the Global Site Tag (gtag.js) in your Bubble app. For Mixpanel, integrate via Bubble’s plugin or directly through the API.
    • Define Key Metrics: Identify crucial metrics such as daily active users (DAUs), session length, engagement with key features (quiz interaction, AI mentor usage), and retention rates. Set up dashboards to monitor these metrics in real-time.

Direct User Feedback Collection

  • Objective: Gather qualitative insights directly from users to complement quantitative analytics data.
  • Actions:
    • Select Feedback Tools: Tools like Hotjar and Typeform offer different capabilities. Hotjar provides heatmaps, session recordings, and feedback polls, while Typeform allows for creating engaging, form-based surveys.
    • Implement Feedback Mechanisms: Integrate Hotjar for in-app feedback collection, setting up polls on critical screens or after significant interactions. Use Typeform to create surveys that can be distributed via email or embedded within the app for more detailed feedback collection.
    • Encourage Participation: Incentivize feedback submission by offering in-app rewards, entry into contests, or highlighting the importance of user input in shaping the app’s future.

Combining Insights for Iterative Development

  • Objective: Use the combination of quantitative and qualitative data to inform development priorities and improve user experience.
  • Actions:
    • Regular Review Sessions: Schedule periodic sessions to review analytics and feedback data. Look for patterns, anomalies, or significant insights that could indicate areas for improvement or innovation.
    • Actionable Insights: Translate data into actionable insights. For example, if analytics show a drop-off at a particular point in the quiz, investigate user feedback for that feature to understand potential issues.
    • Feedback Loop: Implement changes based on insights and communicate these back to users, closing the feedback loop and demonstrating that user input directly impacts the app development.

Implementation Considerations

  • Privacy Compliance: Ensure that any data collection and processing is compliant with GDPR, CCPA, and other relevant data protection regulations. Be transparent with users about the data being collected and its use.
  • User Segmentation: Utilize analytics and feedback tools to segment users based on behavior, preferences, or demographics. This segmentation can help tailor features, content, and marketing strategies more effectively.
  • Continuous Learning: View analytics and feedback collection as ongoing processes. The digital landscape and user expectations evolve, so continually adapting based on fresh insights is key to maintaining and growing user engagement.

By systematically integrating and utilizing analytics and feedback tools, you'll gain valuable insights into how users interact with your app and what they think about it, enabling data-driven decisions to enhance the app experience and drive growth.
