I love ideas and building great products, that’s why I’m in this business – why I do what I do. Lately though, I’ve been feeling really trapped by ideas – almost distracted. As the start-up space continues to grow and UX resources / product developers become much more limited – I’ve been inundated with people that want to show me their product or talk about their idea. As a single consultant this becomes a large time strain. It’s just impossible to meet with everyone and also get work done. It’s also difficult to separate the serious contenders from the not so serious contenders. Moreover, there’s a ton of valuable information I can offer in a short amount of time and lately I’ve been just giving it away. This is why I’m offering a new service, Idea Consultation. You can read more about it on my site, but this is a flat-fee based, two hour consultation where we talk about your product idea, look for potential flaws in your strategy, talk about your target users/customers and other similar and or competitive products. The consultation not only includes feedback on your idea but advice for what to do next depending on where you are in the process.
Why You Might be Right for This:
- You have an idea for product but you’re not sure what to do next or how to test it
- You have a prototype of your idea but it hasn’t been tested or vetted yet
- You have an existing product but are not seeing traction
- You have an existing product and a handful of features you want to develop, you’re not sure which ones to focus on
Some of you may be thinking “hey, I just want to talk about my project with you to see if you can help me.”
I can definitely help you! However it’s impossible to have a conversation about your product without talking through all of the topics I listed above (target users/customers, flaws in your strategy, etc.). By doing this we are already laying the groundwork – I’m already offering you great value – and that is worth something. It’s amazing to be part of a culture where ideas are so rampant but sometimes even within a culture such as this we need restraints. I love what I do and I’m certain I can bring value to anyone who is working on their own product. I’ve done so many times even through just a conversation. Many of the initial conversations I have with people lead them to making better decisions, quicker and most people are surprised at what they learn in this short amount of time. I’ve been doing this for awhile but even I am only fully realizing the how quickly value can be delivered to people working on ideas and products.
