Validate Your Product and the Market

Validate Your Product and the Market

One of the most important aspects of building a business is validating that there is a demand for your product or service.

There are many different ways to validate your product idea, though here are the top five we recommend (whether you’re just getting started or you’ve been in business before):

  1. Make a sale (or sales)!
  2. Research the market and get clear on if there’s a demand for your product.
  3. Analyze demand and search volume. (More details on how to do this below)
  4. Create a free survey to get feedback from customers or potential customers.
  5. Run a crowdfunding campaign
