Hello everyone. I'm working on my business and I'm currently on the idea validation phase.

I planned to survey 500 Facebook friends but I realized it's a mistake since (1) what if the plan doesn't work out and I have to validate another idea again. I wouldn't want to take some of their time again. And (2) it's very time consuming and I don't even think the survey result is 100% foolproof.

So, do you guys know a foolproof way to validate an idea?

Much love everyone. I hope we succeed in our endeavours.

Pick a smaller subset and try to sell your product to them. You'll quickly learn whether there's any demand and/or if there are suggestions for changes or different needs/wants you could adapt your product to fill

Is this a physical product or an info product?
