People get so much excited about their business idea that they don’t even care that it needs validation first. Validation is required prior taking action. Many people do validate their ideas but in their own minds instead of sharing it with others. You need real solid feedback to validate your business idea.
The whole purpose of idea validation is to present the ideas before introducing your selling product to target audience. Let’s take a look on these validation steps:
- Online Forum
There are huge social platforms on internet like Facebook and LinkedIn. They can help you to expose your idea and to identify whether or not the idea that you are pursuing makes other folks interested. And let you decide that all the money, time and effort you are investing is worth it or not. Therefore, presenting and communicating your idea in front of your customers is good way to know their interest level.
- Guest posts
Make a clickable prototype of your idea which you desire to validate and publish on famous sites. By doing this you attract your target people to pre-buy the product. By guest posting on a target website, you can attract lots of subscribers who read to you and fetched by your selling product. Thus, it would lead to more early consumers before even launching the product.
- Facebook ads
Through Facebook ads, you can induce traffic with low budget. You can get visitors to check out your idea and validate it via their feedback before even landing and investing on your main business idea.
- Run a contest
It is one of the ways to help validate your business idea. Potential customers can rise up to maximum with this strategy. However, come up with appropriate strategies like if your idea is related to photography then the prize need to be related what you are planning to achieve. It shouldn’t be some random giveaways.
- Reviews on Amazon
Again this is way to work on customers interests. Initiate by going through related reviews of the product on Amazon. Analyze the trend of liking, disliking and complaining about the similar products by users. This platform enables you to identify your target customer. By this means, you can check users profile and collect their email for promoting your idea.
