I wrote a MASSIVE guide on how to test your startup idea with a market research survey. Graphs, diagrams, videos — it's all here for free.

    Thanks for sharing, @NickFreiling!
    Is it ok if I share it with my users who bought my Notion template for their idea incubation (https://www.producthunt.com/posts/lean-incubator)?

    Awesome stuff!
    I'll read it fully within the next two weeks, and then contact you :)

    Surveys are a powerful tool. Here's a stack of other validation experiments : https://www.teststacks.com/

      This is great! Who made this?

        Thanks Nick, I made TestStacks :). The way it's built is a bit.... sh*t... for want of a better word. I am not a coder; the sign-up process is not very professional. However if I get a little interest I'll def try and improve things.

        TBH the site is for my own use in my "day" job.

    Looks great @NickFreiling, thanks for sharing. I see you particularly like surveys. What are your thoughts on customer interviews vs surveys? What do you think about the book "The Mom Test"?

      Yes, I specialize in surveys. Both surveys and interviews have their uses -- I recommend doing both! Ideally you use interviews during early-stage ideation, and surveys to validate specific decisions like what features to include, how much to charge, and messaging/marketing on the actual packaging and campaigns.

      Haven't read that book, but it's been recommended to me several times.
