Quotes from Nicole Chin:
There is a foundation that an app and a business has to reach first and it’s a product / market fit. A lot of times if you don’t reach a product / market fit, no matter what you do it’s gonna be difficult to growth.
It’s not a one size fits all, even within your product you can really drill down further for 20% who are coming back and what about the other 80%?
What you really want to know whether or not there is any traction for the app. So it’s really defined by users, installs and downloads.
