Killer tips for selling ideas before building them

3 Reasons Why Sell Ideas before Building Them
There are three reasons why it’s better to sell ideas before building them from scratch:
1: Reducing the risk of producing for nothing

There are so many tools out there such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Canva etc… You should have somewhat of an image of what the interface should look like; such as the color, logo, and profile (any kinds of features you may want to include in your app). I made this with Canva under five minutes. So if you work on it properly, you can produce a great interface. This is your MVP. WWW.D8II.COM
