  • 13. Search for patterns
  • 14. Deliver a compelling demo2
  • 15. Do 30 Solution Interviews This is how our solution looks today (screen per problem). Which of the screens resonated the most? Which could you live without? Are there any additional features you think are missing?
  • 16. Central activity: DEMO Don’t start development yet! Build a MINIMAL demo that visually demonstrates the solution (to your customer’s problems), NOT a working prototype.

  • 25. CONCIERGE MODEL Close interactions with first customers mean you are not only selling your product. You are actually selling your expertise in the form of consultancy. To the customer, this consultancy, combined with the software product is surely worth way more than $200/month. For you, the consultancy is necessary to ensure that the product you are building matches the expectations of your customers.
  • 26. RAISE IT! Don’t lower the signup friction, 6
  • 27. Thoroughly QUALIFY who you allow to be in your first set of customers – don’t just let anyone in. Avoid that people sign up, only to be asking their money back after 30 days.
