About this course
The most common reason for the failure of business ventures is the mismatch of the product with what the market needs. The product can be perfect from the technical side, it can have an excellent design and strong marketing. However, success is not guaranteed without a thorough study of consumer spirits. Customer development, which you will study in detail in this course, will help you learn how to feel the market's pulse. Based on a customer-oriented approach, this technique allows the entrepreneur to stay informed about the consumers' needs and create a truly useful and sought-after product. This course is all about studying the CustDev approach in detail at all stages of a new product launch. Thanks to it, you will master CustDev-techniques and learn to read your customers like a book. And knowing your target audience in business is the ability to be at the right time in the right place.

Мне, человеку, который вообще ничего не понимал в создании продуктов, было очень интересно и в первую очередь сильно полезно! Спасибо большое авторам курса.
Курс великолепен. Очень просто и четко объяснены достаточно сложные темы. Я сам такую инфу искал бы очень долго. На многих платных курсах так не доносят информацию, как здесь, просто восторг.

В силу своей профессии, я обязана учиться, и регулярно повышать свои навыки. Курс «Создание продукта с нуля» прошла месяц назад и до сих пор нахожусь под впечатлением. Мне всю данную информацию разложили буквально «по полочкам». Я освоила принципы составления скрининговой анкеты, узнала о техниках проведения исследований потребителей и многом другом. Не жалею ни потраченных средств, ни времени, так как курс пошел мне на пользу. Рекомендую всем, кто работает с исследованиями аудиториями, продвижением и выводу продуктов на рынок. Тем, кто не работает, впрочем, тоже полезно будет.
