Start A Business

Start A Business


 
 

So you have an idea......

Do people actually want it, what does it do for the customers and how much will they pay you?


Step 1

Talk to Potential Customers.  Ask people (not friends or family) general questions such as:

1.) Would you use a product or service like this?

2.) How much would you pay for it? 

3.) If your product or service solves a problem, ask the potential customers how they are currently dealing with the problem.

4.) Would you actually buy the product or service? 

You cannot assume your idea is great.

Talk to Customers and Validate it!
