Identifying Your Market

You get a great idea for a new product, and your excitement has you jumping ahead to create it. But then, that voice in your head says ”Survey your List!” But what if you don’t have a List…or it’s too small or segmented to give you reliable data about the viability of your new product idea?

In this post, I want to give you several ideas on getting “Survey” data…even if you don’t have a List.

Know Your Desired Outcomes!

The first thing to do is to be clear on your goals for the Survey? Let’s assume that your focus is to get a new product on the Market.
* One of the first things you want to know is whether likely prospects are even interested in such a product.
* Next, you might want to discover how much they would pay for such a product if you made it available.The best way I’ve found to get the answer to that question is by making sure the prospect doesn’t feel you’re trying to sell them anything in the moment.
*Wouldn’t it be nice to know how a prospect might go about buying such a product. Would they attend webinars, search for information on youtube, do a google search on the relevant keywords, etc.
* You might even use the opportunity to ask the survey audience what features would be important to include in the product.
