Market Research

Questions to ask:

  • Who is my TARGET MARKET? Demographic Q's (Gender, age, household income, region) Behavioral Q's (Is your product an app? Ask about phone use. Is it a pet product? Ask about monthly spend on pets. Is it a coffee product? Ask how much coffee they drink.)

  • Is my product idea in DEMAND? Ask about competing or similar products. Do people use competing products? What don’t they like about them? How long have they used them? Where did they first learn about them? Elevator pitch your product concept and ask for first impressions. 

  • How much are people WILLING TO PAY for my product? Assuming the price was reasonable, how likely would you be to consider buying this product? Answer options include a five-point scale — 1 (not at all likely) to 5 (extremely likely). If not, why not? 1. At what price would you consider the product to be too expensive? 2. At what price would you consider the product to be priced so low that you’d question it’s quality? 3. At what price would you consider the product starting to get expensive, but you’d still consider buying it? 4. At what price would you consider the product to be a bargain — a great buy for the money?

Web Development Tools

Open source scripts to help with browser compatibility:

  • Modernizr – In the world of Web standards Modernizr is a cherished asset for any project. It’s a customizable library for cross-browser HTML5/CSS3 support. Use the download page to customize your own features or just grab the whole library from GitHub.

  • Fallback.js – This tiny JavaScript library is meant to control every possible fallback method and library. By centralizing all of your scripts it becomes easier to check which files aren’t working and provide alternate solutions.

  • Selectivizr – Selectivizr is similar to Modernizr but it focuses more on CSS selectors. This JS library emulates CSS pseudo-classes and attribute selectors to improve support for older versions of Internet Explorer.

  • Video.js – HTML5 video has taken the spotlight but Flash video is still a reliable fallback. Video.js makes it easy to embed any video format into an HTML5 player with a Flash fallback for older browsers.

  • IE7.js – Older versions of Internet Explorer put up a tough fight against common web standards. IE7.js forces older browsers like IE6-IE8 to support typical rendering methods like transparent PNGs and RGBa() colors.

  • Detect Mobile Browsers – This isn’t so much a library as a code generator for mobile detection. You’ll find snippets in all languages from ASP to jQuery for detecting a mobile browser. Developers can choose to execute(or not execute) code for mobile users based on these results.
