Tyler Denk (CEO @ beehiiv) on building tribalism around your product

  • There’s no substitute for user feedback. The best way to build a product people love is to constantly be talking to users to solve their pain points.
  • Creating a common enemy is a great way to get people to follow you.
  • Once you reach a certain scale, you need to prioritize feedback. Find your evangelists, and do whatever you can to make them happy.
  • Selling advertising is a full-time job. This is why more businesses are switching to subscription models, but removing the friction of ad sales opens more opportunities for creators.
  • The best founders hate fundraising.
  • Hire fast; fire faster is bad advice.
