I hear a lot of advice about validating your ideas by creating simple landing pages and asking for signups and even money.
It makes sense - if someone is willing to sign up or even pull out their wallet, that might be the best signal that you are on to something with your idea.
But how do you actually justify asking them to pull out their wallet?
"Pay upfront to join our beta waitlist?"
"Pay $5 now when it will be $10 after we launch?"
Dunno if this is dumb question 😅, I'm still figuring these things out.
I've been burned too many times wasting months building crap that hasn't been validated.
