How we tripled our revenue by adding one button — on startups Bilingual Child was supposed to be an experiment. We built it in 6 weeks, working on it nights & weekends. The app was free to download with one available book, including ten vocabulary words, and two additional books offered as an in-app purchase of $1.99. For the first two months after releasing it we let it sit. We played around with the keywords and categories it was listed in and it settled in around $20 per day. For the first year the sales were steady, the reviews were good and we were already a year into the development of the followup project — the ‘real’ app that we wanted to build in the education space. Right around Christmas we optimized our keywords and increased the price from $1.99 to $2.99. The increase in revenue moved us into the top grossing education chart. We were excited. The discovery process Throughout the first year we realized 3% of our customers were purchasing the first book. We were losing sales from not having enough content. Then came the magic weapon.

My Letter to Zomato | CechAndMate Dear Zomato, Kudos on your supposed attempt at non-existent humour. Bravo indeed!! To it then. Firstly, your meek attempt to rename Delhi as a tech capital speaks volumes on how jealous you are of the success that Bangalore has achieved with regards to technology and entrepreneurship. So according to you, Bangalore only has e-commerce based startups which you kindly listed on your ad. Yes we do have curfews and yes we do have cops chasing us out of bars when we want to have a drink. Just to open your eyes a little. When God himself decided that Delhi needed to get a taste of Metallica live, you chose to cock it up brilliantly!!! Just to know what you guys missed out on, here you go Just in case you didn’t get that, there’s a reason why we’re the music capital of India. Yes our roads are narrow and yes there is a lot of traffic, but surprise surprise we are still THE place people want to come to from all across India. Person migrates to Bangalore, loves it here and settles down here.

From then on, I grabbed the Google bull by the horns. 2. Google has become successful because it operates at a velocity few other companies can. Being a young gun at Google taught me never to be complacent. Uber has adopted a similar mentality. 3. It goes without saying that tech leaders need to create an environment that lets innovation flourish. 4. Google has never been short on data. 5.
