Asia Orangio - Finding Growth Opportunities When Sh*t Hits The Fan (Turing Fest 2022)

Asia Orangio - Finding Growth Opportunities When Sh*t Hits The Fan (Turing Fest 2022)

So you're strumming along and doing your usual thing as CEO/founder/whatever of your business. Birds are singing, the sun is shining, and customers are happy when all of a sudden, a {INSERT TRAUMATIC THING HERE} happens and completely shakes your business to its core (I'll let you fill in the blank for what it could be). There's churn, loss, drama, panic, you name it. And what's worse is you have no idea if there's a way out. It begs the question: what does your team do when shit really hits the fan and how do you manage to find growth opportunities without being consumed by panic? In this talk, Asia will take you through a real-life case study of how she helped her client find growth opportunities in the midst of a global pandemic (and still ended up 4x'ing their revenue), and cover the takeaways you can apply.

    other competitors had shinier and prettier marketing." "I think I tried maybe 2-3 other platforms before I finally got to Uplisting.
