Of course, being addressed as a startup owner is enthralling and trendy. But once the initial glare fades off, you confront the ground realities. Then, everything boils down to how successfully you survive and transform your venture into a success!
Many startups fail to do the latter. One of the most crucial reasons for it is a lousy product and an incorrect launch timing. In the wake of outpacing the competition, many startups fail to examine the product’s response in real-time and go wrong with its launch time. As a result, the investment goes down the drain. Even worse, the startup goes extinct!
But that doesn’t mean startups should live with these uncertainties and challenges. There’s something called MVP (Minimum Viability Product) that can help startups compute the response for their product and also decide when to launch it. Let’s look at how the MVP stage can benefit your startup.
4 Benefits of MVP for Startups
Startups benefit significantly from MVPs, which often remain in the experimentation phase. An MVP is a product with features enough to attract early-adopter customers/users and validate a product idea early with real-time customer response. The fundamental concept of MVP itself results in various benefits, including the following.
1. Test an Idea Before it
Startups usually operate in testing waters. A single failure could prove detrimental to their existence. Hence, launching a product without testing it before launch can put them at a greater risk of loss. Here, testing an idea with an MVP can help.
The MVP can help the startup gather valuable and real-time user responses about its idea. The user response can help them determine whether to go with the concept or stall its development. If the idea is received well, the startup can materialize it and transform it into an actual product.
2. Gather Real Time Customer Response
Knowing what your target users feel about your idea (before it is developed and launched) proves beneficial. It can help in making informed decisions about investing further in developing the product and making changes based on user feedback. The result is a product aligned with the user’s needs with a higher potential to succeed.
3. Win Investor Trust
Investors prefer investing in startups with proven ideas and figures that support their promise to succeed. Launching an MVP before developing the product helps startups present user responses to the concept and the changes they intend to make. It can help instill a sense of confidence among investors. The investors will be more convinced about investing in the startup’s idea as they have real-time facts and figures on hand.
4. Make an Informed Market Entry
An instinct-based market entry doesn’t help now. The market is uncertain, dynamic, and unforgiving. Especially for startups that do not have as much financial muscle to support their existence, an impulsive market entry could be risky.
But launching an MVP resolves these challenges. It helps gather real-time user responses and allows the startup to test its idea. It provides startups vital insights on the changes and reworks expected. The product that transpires from all these efforts enables startups to make a more informed entry into the market and stand a better chance of succeeding.
