Start-ups should seek out constructive criticism says AusCorp Connect. Collecting accurate feedback that can determine whether businesses are on track with what their target markets want can be beneficial for outperforming competitors.
Every Startup entrepreneur has the strong belief that their idea can achieve something the competition cannot. However, the only way to monitor whether this belief has any foundations is to be open to criticism and take on board what potential customers are thinking, no matter how hard it may be to hear.
Sales figures can be an obvious indication of how popular a product fairs with consumers, however a product may be selling well with certain consumers but by gathering both positive and negative feedback Startups can start to build a clearer picture of what is and isn’t working and develop their product to appeal to an even wider target audience.
AusCorp Connect believe that Startups should be willing to actively seek out consumers who are open to giving a completely honest opinion of their product. Consumers are an incredibly valuable resource when it comes to market research and product development. With so many products on the market consumers are exposed to an excessive amount of marketing and therefore have the means to make a careful and informed decision before making a purchase. This knowledge means that consumers are great at judging whether a Startup has the capacity to go the distance and stand out in the market.
Before establishing a new business venture, entrepreneurs conduct a vast amount of market research. However initial research only really identifies a gap in the market, it doesn’t offer much information on how the resulting product will fair at filling the market gap. Successful businesses work together with their potential customers to develop a product or service that fully meets the consumers’ needs. Whether it be understanding the specific features that customers crave, or something as basic as whether consumers would actually buy a product in the first place, negative feedback provided businesses with a vital understanding of their target audience before too much is invested in marketing a product that ultimately wont earn a return.
