Hey there folks,

just recently I read it is the best approach to presell your mvp (or product) before even creating it. So that one can see if the need is acutally there.

So I wanted to focus on the studying niche, approaching learning another way. Nonetheless I don´t really know how I can presell this to students, since there are just 2 exam periods each year. Are there any suggestions you would have for me?

Maybe other thoughts, hints?

My first idea was to focus like on one subject that most people have problems with (but first have to figure out which one that is) and then approach people about that. Maybe then a Landingpage?

What do you think about it?
Looking forward to your replies :)

Selling things to "students" is a lot harder than selling things to adults.

Students don't have money, are hard to deal with, and will all tell you they'll buy your product and then not come through.

If you're in college, I recommend exploring industries outside of your age group. Get a better understanding of what opportunities exist in the world.

Unless your idea is solving a significant need, and you know the money's there, I'd recommend broadening your horizons.

Acutally I never thought about it that way - and you´re absolutely right. Well sometimes you need to see one tree to discover you´re in the woods haha.

Well I suppose a systematic approach to learn stuff can be useful anywhere - questions still reamains how to presell it before developing the acutal product.

I think the need is significant - however with students money is always a problem (since i am one i know that)

Thank you so much for that input!!! may have taken weeks of work and effort just to discover that people like my idea but won´t spend money on it
