    Hey all! Currently punching my head against a wall because I can't seem to get past this stage.

    It seems that the most common answer for this is "build a landing page and start advertising," however, not many dive into much more detail than that.

    What services do you use for your landing page?
    How do you start advertising?
    What other methods are there for testing an MVP?

    I'm looking at building the highest-quality audio course available for the Afrikaans language. I have recorded the first hour of the audio, and plan to release that as the MVP (Minimum Viable Product.)

    The goal of my website will be to see if people are willing to pre-pay for my course. (I figure the demand is a given, as 1000+ people search for "afrikaans course" every month. The goal is to capture some of that traffic and have them pre-pay for a full course.)

    You can either do the entire process yourself or use a MVP service like www.quickmvp.com to set it up.

    Landing page: This is done in HTML, CSS and JavaScript. You probably need some sort of storage for email collection like a sql database. Simplest would be to code it in PHP for instance. But it requires some programming skills.
    Then you will need a web server (hostgator for instance) and buy a domain (namecheap for instance) like www.learnafrikaans.com or something. You will deploy your landing page on the web server and you are then ready to advertise.

    Advertising: there are different channels to advertise. For instance Google AdWords or Facebook ads. It is up to you!
