Common Client Needs

What is the first step if I have a product idea I want to explore?

To begin the product exploration process, we recommend starting with creating a shared understanding of where you have been, where you are now, and where you want to go. We begin our partnerships with our NorthStar workshop, a complimentary 90-minute session designed to create a shared understanding of our current situation and future goals. By collaborating, we tailor our process to your needs, helping us craft a customized proposal that aligns with your objectives. Contact us to schedule your NorthStar workshop and kickstart your product journey.

Why is product research necessary when creating a digital product?

Product research is crucial for creating a successful product. It helps identify your target audience, understand their needs and pain points, and evaluate the market demand and competition. By conducting thorough research, we can shape the product strategy and determine the features and functionalities that will resonate effectively with users over the short and long term.

How long does the product research and strategy process usually take?

The duration of the product research and strategy process varies depending on the complexity of your product and the scope of research required. Typically, this process can take a few weeks to several months. It’s essential to strike a balance between thorough research and timely execution to avoid unnecessary delays in the product launch. We also recommended revisiting the research process periodically to ensure your strategy remains well-informed and aligned with market trends.

What are the risks of building a digital product without a research strategy?

Building a digital product without a research strategy can lead to several risks. Without understanding your target audience and their needs, your product may become irrelevant or fail to meet user expectations, resulting in poor product-market fit. Additionally, you may waste time and resources building features that provide little value to your users or create a complex user experience. By skipping research, you run the risk of developing a non-competitive product that fails to achieve its business goals in the market.
