Experiments: Pushing Beyond Your Expertise

The growth points of a business always lie beyond the team's expertise. Where the team excels, everything likely works fine already. But to find growth points, experiments need to be conducted, consistently and continuously. That's why in our tool, a experimentation platform is connected to every data source. There has never been a more convenient way to hack business growth than with our tool

Forecasting: Long-Term Perspective

Forecasting in the long term is essential. When data enters a project, metrics update their values. However, changes may not be immediate and can manifest negatively in the long run. Sometimes, a mere 0.05% can turn into 1000% in just 12 months. That's why in our tool, you can set forecasts for several months ahead and get accurate results instantly. No need to wait a year to regret a mistake

Six Fundamental Principles Underlying Growth Hacking

Introducing a framework from the founder of b1-labs, Roman Bolshiyanov, based on six foundational principles that define a unified strategy for exponential growth. You must simultaneously grow in six channels: marketing, sales, product, finance, investments, and team. The impact of each foundational principle multiplies with the others, either enabling growth or acting as obstacles along the way.


With B1-Labs, you can easily improve key marketing metrics like conversion rate and others, although it's sometimes challenging. But once two or three metrics are improved, even slightly, and they are interconnected, the financial impact can be staggering. Especially when increasing the advertising budget, we may see exponential growth. You can try it out right now on our playground.


Revenue from repeat customers is critically important, which is why we always pay close attention to metrics like LTV. Even a slight improvement in these metrics helps increase the number of repeat users and, consequently, saves money on acquiring new customers. But how can you increase LTV? Perhaps through discounts for repeat customers or a loyalty program? And how do you find the golden mean where a discount affects profit worse than increasing LTV? It's easy to do with our tool - just play around with these metrics.


We aim for our product metrics to constantly improve. Product quality is of paramount importance. However, the costs of improvement can be substantial. At a certain point, it may be more advantageous to reallocate resources from product teams to marketing or sales. When is the best time to do this? Deconstruct all your processes in our builder and calculate the economics to scale at the right time in marketing channels


We often take financial expenses, fixed costs, and taxes for granted. We may indeed grow faster in other channels. Yet, what if we were to experiment and find a way to reduce expenses? You know, this, combined with increased efficiency in other channels, will also multiply your profit. And even a 1% saving, compounded, will result in exponential growth. Don't believe it? Try it out in the playground.


Developing a startup with your own money or seeking investments? The goal of business is money. If that's your goal too, then you'll agree it's valuable to know how your income will change in 5 years with and without investments. In our calculator, this is entirely possible to do. And if you've already maxed out your product metrics, have successful sales, and customer acquisition is running efficiently, you'll be surprised how investments can change your profit exponentially. Or will they? Calculate it yourself!


People are the most valuable resource because people make money. But not all people on the team are equally effective. Can we measure people's effectiveness in monetary terms? How to rank employees, or even reduce or hire? And how much will you ultimately earn or lose from this? Making a preliminary forecast in B1-Labs is possible and necessary. Because people's efficiency is also a metric that can be worked on.

Framework - Metric tree that sees the future

Created to predict and optimize results by using innovative methods and technologies

Chapter 1: Introduction

In our rapidly changing times, where business processes are becoming increasingly complex and unpredictable, it is crucial to have tools that help us adapt to changes and forecast the future. This is where the concept of the "Metric Tree that Sees the Future" comes into play.

The name of this framework undoubtedly sounds ambitious. How can an ordinary metric tree predict the future? But if you delve into the essence and purpose of this tool, it becomes clear that its task is not to literally see what will happen, but to help us analyze data and make decisions based on likely future scenarios.

The essence of the "Metric Tree" lies in creating a structure that allows us to analyze various business metrics and their interrelationships to understand what changes might occur in the future and how we can respond to them in advance. It's similar to weather forecasting: we cannot precisely predict what will happen, but we can make inferences based on available data and reduce risks.

In this article, we will examine the concept of the "Metric Tree" in more detail, discuss its practical application, and learn how this tool can help us make more informed and successful decisions for our business.

Chapter 2: The Concept of the "Metric Tree that Sees the Future

Introduction to this concept makes us consider how important it is to have tools capable of predicting changes in our business. The name "Metric Tree that Sees the Future" may seem ambitious, but it reflects the essence of what we want to achieve: not just to see what our business processes look like now, but to understand how they might change in the future.

Forecasting the future in business is possible, especially with an experienced team capable of recognizing recurring patterns and trends. However, linking these forecasts with current metrics and timely adjusting the analysis is a much more complex task.

Although forecasts can be largely unreliable, having upper and lower bounds of fluctuations by the end of the 12th month will help us better understand possible scenarios and take appropriate measures in advance.

In the following sections, we will examine how the "Metric Tree" helps us analyze data and predict changes in business, as well as the advantages and opportunities it offers for managing our business processes.

Chapter 3: Deep Understanding of Long-Term Forecasts with the "Metric Tree that Sees the Future

Delving into the analysis of the "Metric Tree that Sees the Future," we see that it incorporates the ability to forecast long-term changes that may be invisible at the current moment but will manifest in the future.

Let's consider an example with a traffic acquisition channel. Suppose we are forecasting certain metrics in this channel, and initially, it shows positive dynamics because the platform offers us higher-quality leads during the learning process. However, as traffic increases, we can expect the quality of leads to decrease. This may lead to the need to stop working with this channel at a certain point in time.

It is important to understand that the deterioration in traffic quality will also affect the sales department's performance, but these changes will not happen immediately. We can configure our metrics so that this channel is excluded from our strategies in a few months.

On the other hand, we can also forecast the addition of new significant data at certain times. For example, upon reaching significant sales volumes, we might be given a discount, improving our economics and allowing us to invest more in advertising. However, this might only happen after several months.

Finally, after a certain period, we can expect our sales to become so high that our tax rate will increase, and profits will fall. These long-term forecasts enable us to strategically plan our business and adapt our actions according to future changes.

Chapter 4: Working on Six Layers with the "Metric Tree that Sees the Future"

The framework "Metric Tree that Sees the Future" offers the ability to work simultaneously on six layers: marketing, sales, product, finance, team, and investments. In real business, these six layers are significantly intertwined, and understanding their interconnections is crucial.

Often, teams start working with individual metrics of specific channels, for example, product metrics, focusing on increasing registration conversion or forecasting profit growth. However, if work is not forecasted across all six layers, significant improvements in one layer can be negated by deteriorations in others.

For instance, your team might achieve significant sales growth but simultaneously face financial problems due to ineffective marketing budget management. Or, product improvements might lead to increased conversion, but if the team is not ready to handle the increased volume of customers, this could lead to a negative user experience and, ultimately, customer loss.

Therefore, the "Metric Tree" proposes working simultaneously across all six layers. Thanks to integration with Google Sheets, each team can access their data and work independently, while the project manager can manage the settings of the entire project. Even if you have several thousand input data points, the "Metric Tree" can process them and predict future changes, helping your team make informed strategic decisions.

Chapter 5: Flexibility and Scalability of the "Metric Tree"

Let us recall that the framework "Metric Tree that Sees the Future" operates on six layers: marketing, sales, product, finance, team, and investments. Each of these layers is essential for understanding the business as a whole, and they are all closely intertwined.

However, what makes the "Metric Tree" truly powerful is its flexibility and scalability. At any given moment, whether it be three months, nine months, or a year from now, you can unfold any of these six layers and conduct additional analysis.

For example, if you notice changes in market conditions or internal team dynamics, you can make adjustments in any of the six layers and recalculate the financial impact. This allows you to understand the range of possible financial outcomes and make informed strategic decisions for your business.

The flexibility of the "Metric Tree" enables you to adapt to changing market conditions and respond swiftly to new challenges. It is a tool that grows and evolves with your business, providing a reliable foundation for decision-making and achieving your company's goals.

Chapter 6: Innovative Playground for Deep Understanding

On our website, you can find a Playground that allows you to gain a deeper understanding of the processes occurring in a typical business. Certainly, the settings will vary in each specific case, but the advantages of our tool lie in the very easy diagram design, based on Drag-and-Drop technology.

This innovative approach allows you to easily reveal and hide multiple child elements, maintaining the cleanliness and clarity of your project. Furthermore, our tool quickly adapts to new research and experiments.

For example, if you want to add new channels to your Metric Tree in three months, and in five months some channels will be closed, you can prepare such an experiment in a few minutes, including all cohort components and interconnections of metrics across all six layers.

In principle, this can also be done using Google Sheets. This is how I worked for many years until I developed the "Metric Tree that Sees the Future". However, creating just one new experiment in Google Sheets can take several days, making this process incredibly costly.

Using the gamified interface of the "Metric Tree that Sees the Future" framework, you can do this in a few minutes, just like in a game. Try it yourself and see the difference!
