Wouldn’t it be wonderful to know the chances of success for a new project, product, or service BEFORE you get in too deeply?
Small business owners often create products and services, then throw every selling technique conceivable at them. This is the exact opposite of the approach you should be following when developing new products and services.
Determine the need first, then build your offer around that need. It’s much easier to sell something when your product or service is in high demand.
In this guide you will learn the exact steps to follow for determining if your product or service idea is one worth pursuing. You will learn how to use tools available online and how to analyze the results of those tools.
Why Aren’t More Companies Doing This?
The simple answer is that many businesses operating today are small businesses who have no formal training in the evaluation and com- parison of projects. Large corporations use finance experts with ad- vanced degrees to perform complex calculations and report the results to management. When department managers receive the
results, they are responsible for interpreting them, yet do not possess the skills required to understand the analysis provided. This can explain why some projects in corporations are not successful.
