  • Separate priority emails and other, less important ones
  • Answer priority emails immediately instead of putting it off till later.
  • Go over the “low priority emails” once a day
  • This is simple with Spike, which splits important from low-priority messages.
  • Limit the number of apps you use
  • Use one app for email, chat, calendar, tasks, file management
  • This cuts down on context switching, wastes less time, keeps things simple
  • An app like this didn’t exist, so we created it, and all from your inbox

“We have created a network of nano warehouses to improve our post-purchase customer experience”

  1. Eco-alternatives go mainstream — consumers want you to help them make a difference, evolving from a linear approach of create-use-recycle to create-use-reuse-sustain. We’re gonna see a lot of sharing and renting products ecologically and ocean plastic recycled packaging and products. Sustainable alternatives are starting to be affordable, reachable, and consumers are seeking for brands and products that will help them take part in the sustainable revolution. Yay!
  2. On-demand going faster — 2020 will be focusing on getting to the consumers’ doorstep faster, better, and hassle-free. BTW It’s predicted that 50% of all online searches will be voice-based by 2020. We’ll probably see more of the rising evolution of voice experiences and Voice User Interface a.k.a. VUI.”
  • Improved satisfaction: our customers received their orders exactly when they wanted them.
  • Better retention: happy customers kept coming back!
  • Increased AOV: they even purchased more with each order.
  • We gained control of every step: The nano warehouses, located close to the customers’ homes, made delivery fast and easy. It made the return process smooth and simple. And it made the whole post-purchase experience much more personal, so we were able to create a special connection with our customers.”
  • “Inbox zero method — if you haven’t read it yet you probably never will. (P.S — you can drag emails from your inbox to your tasks drawer on Gmail, that way — you can keep emails for later but keep your inbox ZERO.
  • Use a task app, or just a pen and paper. Crossing things out is the most fulfilling feeling you can get (plus you will not forget anything!)
  • If you’re stuck or not sure — talk about it with someone, just saying the words out loud will make you criticize yourself and get to a decision faster.
  • Enjoy what you’re doing! It will show.”
Ariel Kedem:

Roadmap isn’t about what we’re building, it’s about what problems we’re going to solve

Ariel Kedem:

  • Months 0–3 are about: we’re going to solve this problem by focusing in that area and experiment with these X/Y/X features/products
  • Months 3–6 are about: we want to solve this problem(s) and we will explore/research this area in order to understand if and how to solve them
  • Months 6–12 are about: we might want to solve this problem(s) but we don’t really know everything about it now, so we will get all the relevant data and decide later.”
