Turn it into a DIY party
A great way to evaluate your ideas is getting your friends to test out your inventions. One way to achieve this is social media. You can post your idea on social media and analyze the kind of feedback you receive from your friends and followers. Another way is hosting your friends at your place, where they can get to evaluate and use your products. You will be able to get firsthand information about your product’s appeal. You can make it a fun event, like a small party, where you launch your idea to some of your selected friends.
It is important for you to get a feel of your ideas and to gauge whether the targeted audiences show interest in your products. Building a product with no market interest is frankly just a waste of time. Testing out your products on your friends enables you to find ways to improve your final creation. It also enables you to get an idea of what response to expect before testing your product in the actual market.
A great way to evaluate your creation is to prepare questions specific to the details you want to find out about your product. You can ask your friends these questions while watching their body language. It is of course important to make get your friends’ honest opinions with no bias at all. Preparing small questionnaires for anonymous feedback is a great technique to avoid bias affecting your friends’ opinions on your creation.
After your creation has been evaluated and reviewed by your close friends, you can decide whether your product is viable, based on the feedback you receive. After validating your ideas, you are ready to take the next step and put you product through market testing.
