Hey Sarah, i wanted to do a needfinding interview with you. My startup died. I’m pivoting and I need your help, would take max 30m. No worries if you are busy.
❓What are your goals and challenges?
❓What is your biggest challenge?
❓What are you doing today to solve it?
❓Where could you use more support?
❓How much does it cost you to solve it? IN time, in money?
❓If you could wave a magic wand, how much would you pay to solve it?
❓Is this something u would pay for to solve? No worries if not
Hey Bob, i was wondering if we can chat for 15. I was thinking about your sales problem, and was wondering if I can get your feedback on something. I wonder if this would help. No worries if you are busy.
You want to achieve a 20-50% close rate with your persona
Building Founders Cafe - the most intimate Founders community. One founder (YC) just raised $1m. Another female solo founder raised $1.4m. Another college dropout raised $3m.
If you're looking to fundraise, please go to Founderscafe.io
Here’s a script that you can use as your guide :D
Once you consistently hit your conversion rates (30-50%) with your target persona…
You can hand it off to someone else !
If you actively listen to others, they will…
🌟Listen to you
🌟Trust you more
🌟Pay you more
🌟Spill more tea
Active listen = Paraphrase + Ask open question
THEM: “I prepped for my vc meeting until 4am last night”
YOU: “Sounds like fundraising has been stressful. What's been going on?”
I hope this approach will help you! Let me know if you have any approaches that you do or how can we overcome this fear of interviewing people XD
-Best of luck from founderscafe.io
