Startups that did this
Who you can reach out to:
- Your friends and family (especially if they work in a relevant industry)
- Your investors
- Your investor network
- The place you studied
- Your current or previous clients
- Any organisations you’re connected to
- Show potential customers
- Get in front of people
Basically we made something, showed it to people, they said it was cool, and then we just tried to get in front of as many people as quickly as possible:
We shared our MVP for the first time with friends and family. Our MVP was a very basic version of the form builder, you could insert questions and that was it, you couldn't even publish a form. We didn't have a large network of our own, so we started sharing our first version of our form builder with the people closest to us.
We asked our old universities if we can do a blog post for them, they gladly accepted as it inspires prospective and current students. I have also asked past contracting clients if I can do blog posts for them and they were more than happy too!
