The primary reason being the failure to achieve a product-market fit. In this talk Shirish Nadkarni discusses the importance of conducting customer discovery in a highly disciplined manner to really understand customer pain points and testing value propositions through online advertising. He shares the insights and key metrics that you need to track to determine if you have achieved product-market fit.
