"Ask for critical feedback"
Such an easy advice to give. And such a hard advice to put into practice. Here are the 2 principles I use when I ask others for feedback.
It's my job to make them feel that they won't hurt my ego.
E.g. Instead of telling them: "I need your feedback",
I tell them: "I need your critical and honest feedback. The more honest it is, the more you'll actually help me"
Asking "what do you think about my product landing page" is useless.
But asking "Do you understand what are the benefits of my product?" or "Can you understand what my product does?" or "would you feel safe to buy my product?" is much better.
What are your principles when asking for feedback from others?
