how to test your business ideas

[184] How to test your business ideas

If you have an idea for a new product or service you’d like to create, it’s a vital to test it before you spend money making it.

In this episode I share three things I do when I have an idea for a new product or service to make sure I’m not wasting time and money on things people don’t want.

Here’s what you’ll learn in this episode:

  • Tips on sourcing opinions on your ideas from Facebook groups
  • Why you should create products and services for the customers you already have – rather than the ones you want
  • How a simple sales page with a PayPal button is the best indicator of your idea’s success
