Next Steps Toward Launching Your Idea

Episode #10 of the course How to Validate an Idea by Ryan Kulp


Today’s our last day together, so it’s only fair we leave you with tactics to move your idea beyond mere validation and into the growth stage.

By now, you’ve thought deeply about a specific audience, their pain points, and how you can help. You’ve created some sort of presence for your idea, whether on the web or otherwise, and you’ve gotten raw feedback from strangers.

You’ve also made key investments into your workflow, whether that means hiring help, subscribing to tools, or seeking advice from a mentor. You may have even begun the hunt for a business partner who will significantly increase the throughput of your operation.

So what now?

Well, this isn’t exactly a marketing course (coming soon to Highbrow), but here are a few ways to extend your reach as you continue to build upon your idea:

1. Share on 50+ community websites

2. Write a guest blog post

3. Answer subject-matter questions on Quora or submit tips to journalists

I hope this has been helpful and that you’re thinking about creating, iterating, and launching ideas in a new way.

Remember that as entrepreneurs, we only have to be right once. So keep ideating, keep validating, and keep growing, personally and in business.
