“One of the main things that the founders should really focus on is ensuring that the product is extremely differentiated. The second is constantly listening to consumers' needs to create what they really want. That's what differentiates us from anyone else out there,” she said.
Talking about what worked for The Moms Co, given their tight budget in the early days, she added, “We experimented with different messages in small forums, to figure out which message had the most impact on the consumer.”
“Once we knew what messaging worked best, we spent money on expanding the reach of the message on social media, and so forth,” she added, while also saying that mass media did not figure in their initial phase.
