Reading Time: 12 minutes

10. Structured Experimentation

When you start a business, you should have some idea of what will work and what doesn’t.

For example, buy your competitor’s products and note the delivery times, packaging, and condition of the product.

Any holes in customer service can be exploited by you by giving the customer a better experience.
