Show rough & unfinished side of your prototype

Customers are reluctant to criticize or suggest ways to improve a new product concept if it looks too finished.

But they have no trouble telling you what they feel if it seems rough or rudimentary.

#unlearn #buildinpublic
Being a critical person,
I focused too much on what users don't like,
Instead of focusing on what users really like,
and then focus on those and amplify those.

This is my entrepreneurial failure lesson.
Will definitely avoid it in my next venture.

My gameplan when building a startup:
1. Create my vision of the product (MVP < 3 months)
2. Improve it based on feedback until 10 happy customers
3. Ask what they love most about it
4. Rewrite landing page to focus on that
5. Start marketing
I just discovered this thread. #buildinpublic

Capture another spark moment

What did I learn from Replit Founders Talk
"How a side project became a $1B company"

I capatured my spark moment first.

I am planning to assess what I need to do more or adapt.

"still 1% done"

Although we have 70 employees,
but we still consider 1% done.

What exactly this "still 1% done" trying to tell ourselves, our spouse, and our team?!

Customer discovery interviews are crazy powerful...

*If* you avoid these common mistakes:

1. Asking people what they want
2. Asking people about future behavior
3. Relying too much on opinions
4. Talking to the wrong people
5. Talking to people at the wrong time
My son is always arguing with me. ๐Ÿคจ

"if I do x, what is the benefit for me?"

I have 2 arguments: ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ
A - "no one gives me when I was young, sorry. "
B - "the beneifts are potential huge. "

Which message should I deliver?

#delivermessage #buildinpublic
This probably will be "tagged" as over-engineering. ๐Ÿ˜‚
But it is real for me.

When I imagine my ideal users who use SparkLand.
Hopefully, he or she will sense that energy.

What you build reflects what you believe.

I was researching on Internet... how to run focus group?

Wow! Your new product needs to earn attention first, not features. ๐Ÿ˜‚

It is not about #buildinpublic

It is about feedbacks allowing you to change customers current choices.

Find out customers who are super-complainers. ๐Ÿ˜‚
Maybe... we have a chance to align our product journeys to help them to achieve the results faster & better.
