So you have a product idea? Maybe even inspired by our last episode!

Sometimes you can get excited and just plough ahead with it. I kind of did that, back in he day, albeit with the limited time I had available.

Before you spend any time or money, here are a few things I suggest doing.

You can read the entire blog post here.

1. Know who your customer is – and find them!

Take 5-10 minutes to really think about the person your product is aimed at and this will really pay off a bit later.

Perhaps you have someone in mind here, perhaps you’re just guessing. Either way, it’s well worth doing.

Remember, your customer is the person buying your product – not necessarily the person who’ll be using it.  

Maybe you know some potential customers personally, or perhaps you can find them in Facebook groups, or other online (or offline) groups.

Now you know who you’re looking for, finding them should be a little easier. Whether you’re looking for cat lovers, or people who regularly meditate, there are bound to be plenty of groups and forums with your ideal customers already there.

2.Ask some questions

A great question to try is:

“If you were buying an X, what would it need to do / be to exceed your expectations?”

Take notes of everything you find out here (whether you agree or not!) It’s really important to create a product that your customers actually want, rather than the product you think they want!

3. Research similar products & figure out what makes your product different

It’s good to know if there’s anything similar on the market right now.

If so, do people buy it, how much for and what do they think about it?  

You can find out all of this by doing a bit of online research.

Next, give these questions some thought:

  • How can I improve on the products already on the market?
  • How can my product meet my customer’s needs?

The aim is to figure out how your product is going to add value.

4. Validate your idea

I always recommend doing as much validation as you can, before you spend any time and money.

THE NEXT EPISODE will go into validating your product ideas in more detail. In the mean time, take a look at some of the resources below, to get you started.

Speaker:

Welcome to the, bring your product ideas to life podcast,

Speaker:

practical advice, and inspiration to help you create and sell

Speaker:

your own physical products. Here is your host Vicki Weinberg.

Speaker:

So before we started this episode, I just wanted to

Speaker:

tell you about a brand new resource that myself and

Speaker:

my seven year old son had put together. It is

Speaker:

a Product creation worksheet for kids. So just some really

Speaker:

fun, the questions and exercises for them to do, which

Speaker:

hopefully they will enjoy it. And will also give you

Speaker:

a, a, an activity for them, if you're or anything

Speaker:

like that has to be right in the middle of

Speaker:

homeschooling now I'm and all sorts of ideas or things

Speaker:

to do with the Welcome. So if you would like

Speaker:

to get hold of that, you can get it via

Speaker:

the link that I'll put into the show notes. And

Speaker:

now I'm in the show. Welcome to episode five of

Speaker:

Bring Your Product Ideas to Life. I am really excited

Speaker:

today because I'm actually recording this in what I consider

Speaker:

to be the place where all podcast episodes will be

Speaker:

recorded, which is my new office used to be a

Speaker:

spare room.

Speaker:

So for the past couple of years, I've been working

Speaker:

from my kitchen table, or like from an arm chair

Speaker:

or anywhere where they're at. So I'm so excited to

Speaker:

have somewhere with the door and I'm called in this,

Speaker:

in the semi darkness. Cause I've got the curtains closed

Speaker:

because I think that might be better for our acoustics,

Speaker:

as she can tell I'm a podcast beginner, but you

Speaker:

know, let's see, how do we get on? So what

Speaker:

I'd like to talk about today is what to do

Speaker:

now that you have an idea for a product. So

Speaker:

it may be, you have something that you are thinking

Speaker:

of creating, perhaps you were even inspired by our last

Speaker:

episode. If you don't actually have a product idea, that's

Speaker:

a great one for you to go back and listen

Speaker:

to. So that's episode three, which is ways to come

Speaker:

up with a product ideas.

Speaker:

So as you can see, I'm pitching this, you know,

Speaker:

some people who were just about starting out. And so

Speaker:

we're starting out at the beginning here, which is our

Speaker:

hope is helpful. And in fact, we're going to be

Speaker:

even a bit before the beginning 'cause before we even

Speaker:

start thinking about creating your ideas, because I know that

Speaker:

when you have a new idea, I mean, I suppose

Speaker:

I can only speak to myself here, but when I

Speaker:

get really excited about something, all I want to do

Speaker:

is just plow ahead and just put all my energy

Speaker:

into it and I get super excited and I'm all

Speaker:

in. And I just want to know Research things and

Speaker:

take action and just, yeah, just throw myself in, in

Speaker:

a deep way. And really, and I did do that

Speaker:

with my first product because I did it albeit with

Speaker:

the limited time I had available then.

Speaker:

But I do think that had, I had the opportunity

Speaker:

to do things again. And certainly as I've launched other

Speaker:

products, I've learned these, I have done things a bit

Speaker:

differently, have taken a bit of a pause before jumping

Speaker:

in and, and that's what I'm suggesting today that you

Speaker:

do to, before you spend any time, any money or

Speaker:

get too far down the road, there are a few

Speaker:

things I suggest doing before you spend your time and

Speaker:

energy, creating your product, sourcing your product, because I really

Speaker:

want to help you set yourself up for success. And

Speaker:

so this episode is not about putting new enthusiasm at

Speaker:

all is about a few things to do to help

Speaker:

you get started. And if you like, you can think

Speaker:

about these rather than thinking of these are the things

Speaker:

to do before you create your product.

Speaker:

You can actually consider these as the first steps to

Speaker:

creating your product. If that mindset shift helps you at

Speaker:

all. So the first thing I suggest you do right

Speaker:

at the beginning is get really clear on who your

Speaker:

customer is. So we assuming that we know what your

Speaker:

product is, and now we're going to think about who

Speaker:

it's for. So knowing who your product is aimed at

Speaker:

can really help you to enjoy you, create the product

Speaker:

that they want and that they need. So is there

Speaker:

an action here for you, which is to take a

Speaker:

few minutes, you might wanna pause this podcast so that

Speaker:

you might need to come back to this later, but

Speaker:

take a few minutes to jot down as much detail

Speaker:

as you can about the person buying your product.

Speaker:

And it doesn't matter at all if you're getting a

Speaker:

bit here. So I don't mean just defining your customer

Speaker:

at a high-level for example, and a new mom or

Speaker:

the keen Gardner, I would spend about five to 10

Speaker:

minutes. Now, more than that, what do you think about

Speaker:

that? More of, a bit more about the person your

Speaker:

product is aimed at. So the kind of things you

Speaker:

might think about is what kind of age are they

Speaker:

are? What stage of life are they at? For example,

Speaker:

are they new parents or are they recent graduates or

Speaker:

are they people who might have a recently retired? What

Speaker:

kind of, what kind of things do they read? What

Speaker:

social media channels they are and where do they shop?

Speaker:

So are you targeting people who, who will perhaps shop

Speaker:

on the high street or are you looking at people

Speaker:

who might show up on nine?

Speaker:

And if they do shop online, where did they go

Speaker:

to they show up on Etsy or are they big

Speaker:

Amazon shoppers or do they prefer to, do they like

Speaker:

to shop from independent businesses or, or do they like

Speaker:

the big brands? So these are just some of the

Speaker:

things to think about when you're working out who your

Speaker:

customer is. Perhaps you even have someone in mind who

Speaker:

you can use as a muse or an avatar. It

Speaker:

may be that person is actually yourself. Or if not,

Speaker:

just take your best guess I wouldn't do it on

Speaker:

this too much because there's no right or wrong hair.

Speaker:

I just want you to get an idea of who

Speaker:

the person is. That's going to be buying your products

Speaker:

because that will really help you when you're designing it

Speaker:

when you're developing it. And then even further down the

Speaker:

road, when you actually start marketing your product, it really

Speaker:

helps if you know who you're speaking to.

Speaker:

So I'm going to give you an example from my

Speaker:

own products. And my customers are mainly mums, mostly new

Speaker:

mums, and they either have an interest in sustainability or

Speaker:

are they just want to buy a product that lasts

Speaker:

and they don't mind paying a little bit extra for

Speaker:

that. And my products are slightly higher price because they

Speaker:

are really high quality. They are really big. They made

Speaker:

from bamboo and they are designed to last. But I

Speaker:

do know that not everyone is going to care about

Speaker:

some of those things. And they are going to look

Speaker:

at the price and say, well, actually that was really

Speaker:

expensive. And I could get a similar product for cheaper.

Speaker:

And these people, aren't the people that I'm targeting in

Speaker:

my marketing, or when I'm thinking about signing products or

Speaker:

to think about designing them.

Speaker:

I'm thinking about the people who wants to buy something

Speaker:

really good quality that is going to last few years

Speaker:

and that they are going to be able to use

Speaker:

from Perhaps any subsequent children. And I'm also thinking about

Speaker:

the people who might buy for them. So parents, friends,

Speaker:

grandparents, who wants to buy a really nice quality gift

Speaker:

for a new parents. And I guess they're my secondary

Speaker:

customer. So something for you to remember when you were

Speaker:

going through this exercise, and I think is probably worth

Speaker:

mentioning now is that your customer is the person buying

Speaker:

your product and not necessarily the person who would be

Speaker:

using it. So in my example, I'm obviously selling babies

Speaker:

products, but the baby isn't my customer because the baby

Speaker:

won't be actually be buying the thing themselves.

Speaker:

And so if you're selling toy's, for example, the child,

Speaker:

isn't actually a customer, obviously your product, you have to

Speaker:

appeal to the child, but it would also have to

Speaker:

appeal to the person who is actually going to be

Speaker:

paying the money for it. So that's a distinction worth

Speaker:

making. And of course you do needs to be thinking

Speaker:

about the person who would actually be using the products.

Speaker:

So you need to make sure that it's suitable for

Speaker:

them, but the person who is actually going to be

Speaker:

spending the money as the one that you were going

Speaker:

to be thinking about now, because babies, aren't going to

Speaker:

be making decisions about which towel is the best for

Speaker:

them, for example. So it, in that example is the

Speaker:

parent that you need to be thinking about. And when

Speaker:

you are doing this exercise or something else I think

Speaker:

is worth mentioning in is you don't need to listen

Speaker:

to everyone.

Speaker:

Cause a little bit later, we're going to talk about

Speaker:

what you are actually going to do is do you

Speaker:

know, you know who your customer is, we're going to

Speaker:

Now next. We're going to talk about finding them and

Speaker:

about actually talking to them and getting to hear what

Speaker:

they think and the real good key reason have working

Speaker:

out who your customer is before you do. This is

Speaker:

so you don't listen to everyone. So really an extreme

Speaker:

example here is if your product is based at new

Speaker:

moms, you might not want to listen to what your

Speaker:

granddad has to say. Not to say that what anyone

Speaker:

has to say, isn't valid, but I don't want you

Speaker:

to take everyone's feedback on board because not everyone, you

Speaker:

know, will be your target market. So your husband, your

Speaker:

family, your friends, they might not all be people that

Speaker:

you're aiming your products at.

Speaker:

So if they think something isn't a great idea, or

Speaker:

perhaps they have, you know, some advice for you, obviously

Speaker:

you don't listen to what they have to say, but

Speaker:

you don't need to take everyone's feedback on board. And

Speaker:

I think if you know who your product's for, it's

Speaker:

much easier to say, you know, not be heard or

Speaker:

that somebody doesn't like your idea, because you can just

Speaker:

tell yourself, or do you know what? They're not my

Speaker:

ideal customers. So while I respect for what they think,

Speaker:

ultimately the product I'm creating isn't for them. So I

Speaker:

don't need to be, you know, take that feedback personally.

Speaker:

So you know, now who your customer is, hopefully once

Speaker:

you've, you know, finish this episode or, or pause this

Speaker:

episode is going away and giving it a bit of

Speaker:

a foot. So the next thing that we need to

Speaker:

think about is finding them say, Perhaps, you know, some

Speaker:

potential customer's personally, or perhaps you can, or if not,

Speaker:

you can definitely find them.

Speaker:

I was going to say, perhaps you can find a

Speaker:

bit, do you know what? In the world we live

Speaker:

in it, you can definitely find them. So you have

Speaker:

a sense of who they are, which makes finding them

Speaker:

a bit easier. So you might be looking for cat

Speaker:

lovers. You might be looking for people who meditate. You

Speaker:

might be looking for runners. And there were bound to

Speaker:

be plenty of places, whether that's online or offline, where

Speaker:

you already know where your potential customers are already. So

Speaker:

once you've worked at where your potential customers are I

Speaker:

know I've skimmed over this piece, but I do think

Speaker:

that nowadays there are lots of places to find them.

Speaker:

So, as I say, you might know people personally, you

Speaker:

might know of clubs or groups in your local area.

Speaker:

And if not, there's always things like Facebook groups and

Speaker:

online forums for people, with all kinds of interests, where

Speaker:

you're bound to find some of the people that you

Speaker:

are looking for.

Speaker:

So now that you know who your ideal customer is

Speaker:

and you know, where to find them, the third step

Speaker:

is to ask some questions. Now, the first thing I

Speaker:

am going to say here, is I know that this

Speaker:

can absolutely be scary because it's coming out and saying,

Speaker:

I'm going to create a product. And what do you

Speaker:

think is scary? You're really putting yourself out there. And

Speaker:

I know another fear that I hear a lot, which

Speaker:

I will address right now is, well, what if I

Speaker:

tell people I want to do it? And they go

Speaker:

in and steal my idea. Say the first thing I

Speaker:

would say here is that most people won't. And I'm

Speaker:

not saying that flippantly, but I do. You mean it?

Speaker:

I mean, the reason you'll listen to this podcast, so

Speaker:

is shame is that you are looking to start selling

Speaker:

a product and you wants a bit of help and

Speaker:

you probably know, right?

Speaker:

No, we were ready or, or perhaps it should be.

Speaker:

And you know, you're starting to realize that it's not

Speaker:

actually an easy thing to do. I mean, it is,

Speaker:

and it's not, if you know the steps to follow

Speaker:

and I'm, you know, and there was a process, you

Speaker:

can follow it along. You, you definitely can do this

Speaker:

yourself. It, so it is definitely doable. I've done it.

Speaker:

So many people have done it and I can, you

Speaker:

know, I really want you to help you do it,

Speaker:

but it's not going to be for everyone. Not everyone's

Speaker:

going to be interested in selling products, not everyone's going

Speaker:

to be interested in your particular idea and not everyone

Speaker:

is going to have the time and the energy and

Speaker:

the commitment to see it through, particularly if it wasn't

Speaker:

their idea in the first place.

Speaker:

And also, you know, if your pit talking to people,

Speaker:

you know, talking to your friends, I mean, if they

Speaker:

did steal your idea, that would be really low. But

Speaker:

anyway, I, I really don't think that you should let

Speaker:

that stop. You Now, if you are genuinely are worried

Speaker:

about that still when I haven't persuaded you otherwise, or

Speaker:

even if you just don't want to get yourself out

Speaker:

there too much yet you don't actually need to say

Speaker:

I'm going to create this product. What do you think?

Speaker:

And actually in some that might not be okay anyway,

Speaker:

I don't know if you're going into a, a, a

Speaker:

great way. You don't know anybody, whether that's a, you

Speaker:

know, an actual group of gathering of people as well

Speaker:

for that in an online group, you know, that might

Speaker:

not be the best way of approaching it, but you

Speaker:

can ask a few more on nine questions.

Speaker:

So for example, in an online group, you could paste

Speaker:

Hi has anyone here ever brought and X, you know,

Speaker:

whatever your product is, what, what, what would you recommend?

Speaker:

What did you think about them? And then you can

Speaker:

follow up and what they say to learn a bit

Speaker:

more, you could also ask questions, like, you know, if

Speaker:

you have bought a or whatever, what did you like

Speaker:

about it? How do you feel that it could be

Speaker:

improved? M did you think it was worth the price?

Speaker:

You know, the kind of thing just to get, these

Speaker:

are just examples. So what are you trying to get?

Speaker:

The sense of hair is if people have bought products

Speaker:

similar to yours, Before what they thought about them. 'cause

Speaker:

this gives you a really valuable insight when your thinking

Speaker:

about creating your way in, and if they haven't bought

Speaker:

them, why not say, for example, if everyone says, Oh,

Speaker:

I've always wanted to buy one of these, but I

Speaker:

never have, because it's too expensive.

Speaker:

Or I think I had only use it once, or

Speaker:

I don't see the point of it. This is a

Speaker:

really good information for you to have. So other questions

Speaker:

you could ask and I think would apply if people

Speaker:

hadn't Perhaps bought the product you are looking to create

Speaker:

is if you were buying, you know, this kind of

Speaker:

product, what features would you be looking for? What is

Speaker:

the most important thing to you? So hopefully you'll get

Speaker:

the idea. Another great question is if you were buying

Speaker:

whatever, what would it need to do to exceed your

Speaker:

expectations? I've actually got a full Blog post on this,

Speaker:

and I we'll link to it in the show notes

Speaker:

because it's, it goes through how to get some really

Speaker:

relevant answers from your ideal customers.

Speaker:

So if you need a bit more help with this

Speaker:

blog post to be linked in the show notes, and

Speaker:

that's a really good one for you to look at

Speaker:

it. So I would definitely make sure you take notes

Speaker:

of everything you find out here, wherever you agree with

Speaker:

people who are not, that this is really hard. If

Speaker:

you're creating a product and your target customer, it is

Speaker:

people like yourself. I've definitely been through this where I've

Speaker:

had what I thought it was really good at. I

Speaker:

did. And you know, the product, I don't know, do

Speaker:

you know my Perhaps my product idea. I would really

Speaker:

like, and I thought it was great. But when I

Speaker:

started talking to other people in, who were also at

Speaker:

my target customers, so I've a new moms. Cause when

Speaker:

I started my business, I was a new mom and

Speaker:

I was talking to them and I was actually finding

Speaker:

out that actually not everyone agreed with me if that

Speaker:

makes people, did it on some things.

Speaker:

And then what I thought was important was what I

Speaker:

thought it was important, but ultimately I can not create

Speaker:

a product just for myself because I want people to

Speaker:

by it. And so I have to make sure that

Speaker:

it was going to appeal to more people than just

Speaker:

me. It's really important to create a product that your

Speaker:

customers actually want rather than the product do you think

Speaker:

they want? So if you're going to take the time

Speaker:

to go through these steps, you're going find people to

Speaker:

talk to. And you're going to sit down and talk

Speaker:

to them. Please make sure you listen and take what

Speaker:

they say on board. Okay. So the fourth thing I

Speaker:

think it's worth doing before you start creating your product

Speaker:

is to look at similar products on the market.

Speaker:

So it was really good to know if there's anything

Speaker:

similar on the market right now. So that's one thing

Speaker:

is good to know. Is there anything out there like

Speaker:

the product do you want to create? And if so,

Speaker:

why do people buy it? How much they pay for

Speaker:

it and what they think about it. So some of

Speaker:

this information you may have just by going out and

Speaker:

asking people, but this is really good to do a

Speaker:

bit more online research. It, it, it will take a

Speaker:

bit of time, but it is a relatively simple. So

Speaker:

I like to use Amazon for this. I know other

Speaker:

people would have that same methods, but I think that's

Speaker:

a good place to start as there's lots of products

Speaker:

and most of them will have reviews that you can

Speaker:

take a look at. And if the product, if you're

Speaker:

interested in and have no reviews, think about what this

Speaker:

tells you. In some cases, it might be that Amazon

Speaker:

isn't the right marketplace to be looking on.

Speaker:

And in fact, you might already know. So what I

Speaker:

might have just said, look at Amazon and you might

Speaker:

think, well actually, would people buy my products on Amazon?

Speaker:

If they will go to the sites where people would

Speaker:

buy them. So if you are looking at products a

Speaker:

bit more unique or how to make up my own,

Speaker:

look on Etsy. For example, you might also want to

Speaker:

look at some independent sides. I'm just suggesting Amazon is

Speaker:

kind of a catchall for lots of mainstream product. It

Speaker:

can be a good place simply because there is so

Speaker:

much data on there. So I have a look for

Speaker:

products like the product you're looking to sell if such

Speaker:

a thing exists and just see what you can find

Speaker:

out. So I always like to keep a spreadsheet here

Speaker:

because I'm very organized like that.

Speaker:

Where do I note down on the products that I

Speaker:

Find, what particular features they have, how much they are

Speaker:

selling for, and importantly, what the reviews say about them.

Speaker:

And what I like to keep track of is positive

Speaker:

reviews. It is what are the positive things people are

Speaker:

saying about these products and what are the negative things

Speaker:

people are saying, because that really gives you lots of

Speaker:

information when you're coming to design your own products. So

Speaker:

real example here, which I'm sure that I've shared before.

Speaker:

I'm and apologies. So if I have, is that when

Speaker:

I was looking at creating my towels, I was reading

Speaker:

a lot of reviews from people saying that the towels

Speaker:

on the market at the time, it didn't last very

Speaker:

long because they were really small.

Speaker:

So I made mine really big. And that was honestly

Speaker:

just from reading all of these reviews and seeing what

Speaker:

people were saying about what was out there. Obviously I

Speaker:

had them ideas of what I wanted to do anyway.

Speaker:

So I wanted to create that really helped. Validate my

Speaker:

idea, the validation is something we would actually talk about

Speaker:

a lot more in a future episode as well. So

Speaker:

now you have so much knowledge. Okay? So once you

Speaker:

have carried down all of these steps, you have so

Speaker:

much knowledge you would have, so you would have done

Speaker:

so much research and you've got a lot of information

Speaker:

and the best thing is, okay, it might've taken me

Speaker:

a bit of time, maybe a couple of hours, but

Speaker:

you haven't spent any money at all.

Speaker:

And you're actually a lot further ahead, the way you

Speaker:

were before you started taking these steps. And the final

Speaker:

thing I suggest you do now is to just reflect

Speaker:

on everything you've learned and figure out how your product

Speaker:

is going to be different, how is going to add

Speaker:

value? So thinking, so there are two questions I'd like

Speaker:

you to think about, which is how can I improve

Speaker:

on the products are already on the market and how

Speaker:

can my products meet my customer's needs, which Remember, hopefully

Speaker:

if you'd been speaking to them and they've told you

Speaker:

about, so I will just run through these again. So

Speaker:

how can I improve on the product already on the

Speaker:

market and how can my product to meet my customers

Speaker:

needs?

Speaker:

So I am going to show you an example using

Speaker:

my bamboo hooded towels, which I know you mentioned before.

Speaker:

So when I did my research, customers told me that

Speaker:

most of this house on the market for newborns only

Speaker:

last a few months. So I had decided to make

Speaker:

my own bigger. He also found out from the online

Speaker:

research, which I did on an Amazon by looking at

Speaker:

it, you know, which house, where they were selling best

Speaker:

and what customers were saying about them. I can see

Speaker:

that most customers like towels with a hood and that

Speaker:

the simple designs tended to be the best sellers or

Speaker:

my products are made from bamboo. And I chose to

Speaker:

keep with them white and unbleached. So I wouldn't be

Speaker:

able to add any chemicals. So when, when you put

Speaker:

it together, the size of the towel, plus the weight

Speaker:

plus the hood plus a simple design plus bamboo fibres

Speaker:

plus no added chemicals thats m ethat's added up to

Speaker:

equal or a great product.

Speaker:

So I'd really like you to, just as a final

Speaker:

step to do the same, just to think about all

Speaker:

of the things you've learned and your research, and think

Speaker:

about how you are going to make your product the

Speaker:

best it can possibly be. And I'm not suggesting that

Speaker:

you need to be putting it together like a final

Speaker:

specifications at this stage, or perhaps you feel that your

Speaker:

ready to do that. But just to think about how

Speaker:

are you going to make your product really special, really

Speaker:

different, and just stand out a little bit from anything

Speaker:

on the market at the moment. And I will say

Speaker:

that perhaps your part or the product you're looking to

Speaker:

get at is something completely unique and the difference in

Speaker:

anything out there already. Well, in that case, you've already

Speaker:

got, you know, you've already got that, but I still

Speaker:

do think it's worth doing this kind of research because

Speaker:

it, especially if you're creating something so new that no

Speaker:

one's seen anything like it.

Speaker:

I really do think it's worth finding out what people

Speaker:

want from it. So you can still make it as

Speaker:

best as it could possibly be. So right now we've

Speaker:

gone through all of these steps and I actually think

Speaker:

there were five and not four. So you've got a

Speaker:

bonus one in there and I'm just going to run

Speaker:

through them again. So the things I suggest you do,

Speaker:

our work out who your ideal customers are, find them,

Speaker:

ask them some questions, look at similar products on the

Speaker:

market and see what people are saying about them and

Speaker:

then define your unique selling point. So work out how

Speaker:

your product can be the best it can possibly be.

Speaker:

So now you do have the very bare bones of

Speaker:

a product specification.

Speaker:

And the next thing to do is to think about

Speaker:

validating your product idea. So I always recommend doing as

Speaker:

much validation as you can before you spend any time

Speaker:

and money creating your product, and you've done so much

Speaker:

work so far, you should now have a really good

Speaker:

idea of what your product is, what it does, what

Speaker:

it consists of, which really help you when you come

Speaker:

to creating it. And in the next episode, we're going

Speaker:

to talk about validating your idea in lots of detail.

Speaker:

So if you can't wait until the next episodes, I

Speaker:

do, you have a freebie, which is seven free ways

Speaker:

to validate your product idea, which you can download right

Speaker:

now. And that will be linked in the show notes.

Speaker:
