I don’t think anybody in the app industry would argue with the fact that growth is what occupies app marketers’ and developers’ minds all the time. From Monday to Friday and, unfortunately quite often, from Friday to Monday as well, people do mental gymnastics for how to make their app’s growth more efficient.

Quotes from Jeff Wang:

“I can spend all day looking at the reports, especially when you have a lean team. It’s really important to get a sense of your business impact to guide workflows as well as the strategical direction.”

“One good tip I would give is to have a regular cadence for certain reports.”

“I think since we’re a subscription product, looking at churn is really useful, seeing what a month-to-month looks like.”
