Roland Frasiers Pivot Canvas

Can you…

1. Zoom in like Apple?

2. Zoom out? 

“Have one product that is very inclusive, that you can splinter out so that you have lots of separate products”. Roland Frasier

3. Improve your price or performance with new technology?

4. Switch your Sales Platform (between a house product and an affiliate or marketplace)?

5. Change your distribution channel (but not your product)?

6. Value Capture: Is there some kind of revenue model that you haven’t thought about before?

7. Can you change your growth engine? Switch from viral to paid? Or visa versa?

8. Tweak your product to solve a more critical customer need than it’s currently solving?

“There’s a lot of products that started out one way. Post-its would probably be the best example – they were supposed to be inventing a non-breakable bond. And, and they did not succeed. They failed utterly because it wouldn’t stick even to paper. But it turns out that that’s pretty cool. Right?” Roland Frasier

How about you,

9. Adjust your customer segment? Directing the same product to a different customer.

“So we do this with masterminds. We have the War Room Mastermind for digital marketing and digital businesses. We have Closing Table for Real Estate agents and brokers. We have Boardroom for Real Estate Investors. It’s the same product just going to different segments.” Roland Frasier 

And lastly, 

10. Consider changing your ‘architecture’ from the high margin, making a lot of money on a low volume, to making a little money on a lot of volume.
