🎙️ Idea: A podcast called 'Talk to your users'
• LIVE examples of a founder validating product/ideas
• How to/how not to do it
If this gets enough traction, I'll do it. Would you listen?
Situation: the classic startup advice always says "talk to your users" (Paul Graham on Twitter, just one random example)
Problem: Ok, any practical examples? I don't mean theory, I mean me listening to founder X talk to user Y. With good AND bad examples
You'll always hear 'talk to your users' in the top 5 Startup advice. But I couldn't find too many live examples of this piece of advice. There Robert Fitzpatrick's "Mom Test" book which is great. But what about the actual calls of founders talking to users?
So many questions. But I want to record mine.
If I document user conversations for a product,a nd the product becomes a $1M+ ARR business, having documented those conversations will be 💸💸💸💸💸
I wish I could listen to Jason Cohen's conversations with users who, after selling 2 companies, had this new idea. But because he couldn't get enough in pre-sales, he dropped it (imagine how hard that was)
Then he started WPEngine pre-sold it to about $2k MRR, and built it. I wish I could hear conversations for BOTH ideas: WPEngine and the one he dropped.
A podcast called "Talk to your users". I'll be having these calls anyway, so (with consent) I'll record them, and it's a 2-in-1:
Would you listen?
Given the feedback I made this form so I can update you guys. I made the artwork really quick (based on another project of mine's artwork) and recorded a quick trailer: https://anchor.fm/talktoyourusers (iTunes was nice and approved it within minutes... wow? didn't know that's possible)
