Hey Guys,

I'm following the steps prescribed to go from idea to productocracy to develop WordPress plugin.

I have a particular idea which I'm exploring, but i don't now wether or not to go to the next phase. I performed a N.E.C.T.S analysis and it all seems to check out. I got the initial idea via a forum, users asking questions how to do something. Found out multiple people have that problem.

However, google search volume data doesn't seem to support this, should I move on to the next soft validation steps (i think about market simulation with a opt-in page with mock screenshots of the product)? Or should i explore the next idea?

In general, i found google keyword data no longer returns workable results, how do you guys approach this? How much weight do you put on this search data?

Go direct to the people who you saw with the problem. Ask for presales (offer an incentive).

If one person has that problem it is very likely that 10,000s of others do too (unless it is something super niche).

Don't give too much weight to google search volumes. If you are solving problems for people, you're going to get paid.

Be aware of the desert of desertion. Your brain will think up a million ways that you can't, or shouldn't. Expect it and take action in spite of.
