Hey << Test First Name >>,

Everyone is lying to you.

Big statement? Well, yes. But think about it. If you ask your customers if they like your product they will lie to you, at least a little (just like your mom would). Why? Because you’re asking the wrong question.

So, for this reason, we have invited Rob Fitzpatrick, the author of the The Mom Test, a best-seller and must read for all entrepreneurs, for our next Masterclass on:
“How to Talk to Your Customers”.

But, the big news doesn’t end here… I won’t spoil you the details in this intro, as some people did with the new season of House of Cards (don’t say a word, I’m still in episode 3), so just keep on reading.

Cheers,
Maria and the Beta-i team

 

Main highlights

MASTERCLASS: HOW TO TALK TO YOUR CUSTOMERS

Rob Fitzpatrick, the author of The Mom Test, will join us for a Masterclass, this April 11th.

 

Learn how to talk to your customers, make the right questions, and develop a better product, with this top expert in customer development.

The first 15 tickets get a special discount and all tickets include Rob’s book. Last Masterclass sold out in less than a week, so you better hurry this time.

Find all about it right here.

MASTERCLASS: INSIDE SALES WITH ADI AZARIA

Pretty much like video killed the radio star, inside sales killed the traditional salesman. And guess what? We might miss the radio star, but definitely not the traditional salesman…

Adi Azaria will be giving this insightful Masterclass on April 12th (right after Rob’s Masterclass on Customer Development). He’s the co-founder of Sisense (a business intelligence software used by companies like Ebay, Booking.com and Nasa) and an inside sales evangelist.

Check all the info here and if you want to attend both masterclasses reach out to us as we have a special discount.
