Did you know...
Most products and businesses fail
Over 30,000 new products launch each year in the North American market; 95% FAIL.
Why? Not money. Not lack of effort.
The reason? No market validation.
Most failures are the result of not understanding the customer’s problem.
That means we're building products no one wants to buy.
Do you know what you don't know?
Never assume your product is the solution people really want...
Falling prey to loving your own product idea so much you build it before you validate it is lethal to your success.
Sure, you know a lot. But EVERYTHING you think you know about your customers is, well, just a hypothesis (ouch).
Your first job is to identify a problem in the market worth solving; that’s means talking to customers first and testing all your customer and market place assumptions.
Rich customer feedback is the magic sauce you hunger for. Great experiments reveal market place problems customers are willing to pay for to go away.
Failed innovations and lackluster business models are devasting to morale, the bottom line, and your future.
You work hard; getting a successful product to market shouldn’t be this expensive, risky or difficult.
Take the GUESSWORK out of your product's success in the marketplace.
Traditional business plans don't work.
Let's fix it.
Traditional business plans insist we create “Excel magic” and generate revenue projections that are unproven and unknowable. That leaves us feeling uncomfortable and gets our “imposter” gene working overtime. You don’t need that stress. Nor do you have time to write documents that get shelved and never again see the light of day.
While most new products and business fail, you don’t have to. Instead, you can learn to make a mindset shift from tech push to market pull and embrace a proven plan with step-by-step actions to get your innovations to market the first time and every time. That’s a promise.
