MBA980 Q&A Wednesday: How do I know my business idea is a good one?

Ideas: we all have them. Some of them are even good. But is your idea good enough to sustain a business?

You don’t have to guess.

If you have an idea for a great product or service, you can find out — in the real world — whether it can actually sell. You can take concrete action to determine if your business idea has a decent chance of working. In today’s digital economy, it’s easier than ever to do market research. You just have to know where to start.

Today, we take you step-by-step through the process of validating your business idea. Before you put any other time or money into your idea, do this first. We explain simple, immediately actionable ways to “feel out” consumers. This way, you can proceed with more than just an educated guess: you can go forward confident that your product or service already has people waiting to buy it!
