Startups and Strategic Risk - Airbnb walks the tightrope

I came across an interesting bit of information, that one of Airbnb's customers lost in a court ruling.

Potentially scary stuff if you rent out your NYC apartment with Airbnb.

It had me thinking about the tightrope of strategic business risks that many eventually-successful startups straddle on their way to success.

When the startup success story of Youtube is told, nobody seems to remember that they may have been wiped out at almost anytime in their early years if Sony, Disney and other content producers had reacted early enough (or over-reacted) with lawsuits and copyright violation injunctions.

They could have been Napster'd.

As it turns out, competitors waited long enough, Youtube gained momentum, married into the deep pockets of Google, and now the unit continues to thrive.

In "The Click Moment", the author makes the case for randomness in determining why some companies reach outlier levels of success while others fail. I can't help but thinking this might be a classic case. In the meantime, you might want to say an entrepreneur's prayer for the ever resourceful fellas at airbnb.

Just makes me wonder.

Thoughts?

Who Are Your Customer Witnesses?

One of the great strategic marketing practices one finds in well run service businesses is the constant tracking and monitoring of both "lagging" and "leading" indicators of business performance.

In other words, some business owners are able to tell how well they have done, and how well the business is likely to do based on current conditions within the business, or within its customer base.

One powerful "leading indicator" in the marketing system of a business that's trending up, is the rate of customer-generated business that comes in. If your business boasts a healthy rate of customer-generated business; of leads brought in through customer word of mouth, then you know you have good sailing ahead.

On the other hand, if your business is always struggling to get referrals, it is likely that something is wrong with your business model, your messaging, your service execution, or all three.

Till next time.
