I cannot get people to open up to me.
We decided that targeting primarily businesses instead of freelancers would bring in more revenue and more feedback. Tried to talk to some people who own or work at such businesses. It's painful.
I have been trying for about 3 weeks now. Tried Facebook groups, Reddit posts, and some unsolicited messages. I'm still at point zero. Nothing. Nada.
Most Facebook groups and subreddits denied my posts right away. They were literally just discussion posts. I did not mention that I have a product, I did not try to advertise. I guess admins/moderators still picked up a smell.
One reddit post got attention from a single person. And they thought I posted at the wrong subreddit. After I explained myself, they provided some of their experience about the topic. It was nice but wasn't exactly what I was looking for.
I got zero valuable feedback in 3 weeks. What am I doing wrong? Are the people that I'm targeting generally hard to reach? Do I look for them in wrong places?
