The most valuable step in any business idea is: stepping onto the road. Most people delay getting out there in the market believing that they first need to perfect their product. And, this is because many of us believe that success happens overnight. It’s tempting to imagine that the world will do the magic, and bring you back the fame and the money. But clearly, this is a delusional derivative.
A powerful business idea only becomes successful when the man behind the idea is persistent. When he chooses to put enough efforts to make it happen – day in and day out, for years.
Below are seven different ways to get your idea off the ground. You may call it your first effort – the first time you put your idea into action, and document it well. Create it as cheaply as you can with just the resources you have available in the moment. This kind of live learning can help you not only test your idea but also put your resourcefulness to good use.
THE FEEDBACK LOOP:
The process will help you find out a.) What areas need improvement? and, b.) How people are responding to your business idea?
Once you start receiving feedback, you must keep tweaking your product to reflect what you’ve learned from the ‘getting it out there’ process. This is called the ‘feedback loop‘, a trend set into motion by tech companies in Silicon Valley. A lot of companies first release the beta version of their product, allowing themselves to learn from real-life applications of their idea.
The bottom line is: it’s time to start. You don’t need much as long as you have a powerful business idea, optimal resourcefulness, and the willingness to continually improve.
