Why You Need to Test Your Product Idea and How You can Do it in Just One Week
Upon coming up with a product idea, entrepreneurs want to create an MVP first before conducting beta or going live with the product. Often, the MVP serves as a good place to start off with building the product as it minimizes risks and revisions. While this is a good approach there is an even better one. What if you could test your prototype itself in just one week? Yes, that’s possible. By testing your product idea first, even before you build your MVP, you can ensure that your prototype is way better prepared before it’s up for testing. There are some points that should be noted when you are speed-testing your product idea in a week’s time. When we say product idea, we are not just talking about the thought behind the product, but the way the product is supposed to actually work. It’s true you have a product idea, but is it a good one? Can it be rendered as you want it to? Can you do justice to both form and function? In order to successfully carry out a product idea testing in a week’s time, it is preferable to have:
- A representative from each team working on it, by sharing thoughts and ideas (UX designers, Product developers, Product managers, Product marketers, Sales executives etc.) and with dedicated, fixed time over the week.
- Have a team of users on a standby test as and when your first prototype is ready for testing.
