"Your instinct is great at coming up with ideas and hypotheses based on your past experience, but it's almost always wrong." – eric bieller (source)what if I told you that savvy entrepreneurs sell products before they create them? I pre-sold a saas tool and made $3,306 before a developer wrote a single line of code. Justin mares made nearly $500 for bone broth soup by investing $50 in bing ads. Bryan harris made around $10,000 in 24 hours for "The vault," using a mailing list of 6,000 people. Noah kagan sold 15 taco shirts for $25 each to his facebook friends before finding a manufacturer. When I say you can pre-sell your product, that makes a bit of sense, doesn't it? You need resources upfront to start a business. What better way to validate and improve your product than with paying customers, right? Creating a product that no one wants is expensive and time-consuming. Consider the alternative: you have a brilliant million dollar idea that no one has done before. It email list could be an e-commerce product, a saas tool, or an online course. After raising funds or taking out a loan, you start creating your product. You create an automated email sequence to pitch your list, and then… crickets. No investigation. No sales. Nothing at all. Product flops are nothing new. According to email list cb insights, 42% of startups fail because there is no market need for their product. Depending on who you ask, the failure rate for new products ranges from about 40% to 95%. Failure is often a big expense, especially if you've hired people. Not to mention demoralizing. You might think that if you're big enough, you can advertise a successful product. But big brands aren't immune to product flops either. From new coke to amazon's fire phone, the biggest names in business have all created products that no one wanted. In this article, I'll show you how to leverage your email list to pre-sell your product…and put money in the bank before you create anything.
