What is the best feedback? Is it from that random guru from a forum or FB group, somewhere that tells you your color coordination is off, font sizes could be larger, and the image alignment should draw the reader’s eyes toward your CTA?
No. It’s not.
The best feedback is from your own mind when you’ve spent some time becoming truly informed about your needs. “Best” is one of those words that means something different to everyone.
How could my best be your best? I suppose it is possible, though not probable. Chances are your best is quite different.
But maybe you need some help in finding your best.
The catch is there’s just a finite number of hours in a day and a ton of things vying for our attention. That dream, that idea you have, may be top of mind one moment, then back of mind the next.
A cat video on YouTube may hold your attention just long enough for a friend to text you asking you to lunch. During lunch, you make plans for a Netflix evening.
Before you know it your idea has been out of mind for hours, days, or longer. Then when you revisit it you’re in a hurry to get things done. But there is something not quite right with your idea. You can’t put your finger on it.
So you reach out for help.
So you head to your favorite Facebook group and ask for feedback. What do you get?
“Looks great! Nice work! Yea, I’d try that.” -Everyone on Facebook Groups.
But you and I know they probably only glanced at your idea, maybe didn’t even read it at all. They say nice things because it makes them feel better, but it doesn’t help you.
In fact it could harm your chances of success. It may give you a false sense to proceed, thinking your idea is ready for execution.
What you should do instead.
Instead of asking a group of people who have no vested interest in your idea’s success, you need to spend the time to explore and think through your idea (I know, easier said than done, isn’t it?).
That means truly thinking about who your target audience is, in-depth. How your idea helps them, where they are, and so many other areas (such as how you’ll technically implement the idea, how much it will cost, etc).
You probably know this, but that darn nagging feeling that you’re forgetting something keeps coming back doesn’t it? Or that there is something you don’t know to ask yourself.
That’s why I created LetMeWhyYou. To save you time, to help you refine and expand your ideas. To ensure you more fully think through areas of your idea you may have overlooked entirely.
I don’t try to influence your idea. I never judge your idea, or try to change your mind. I don’t say nice things just to make you feel better.
In fact, I’m not reviewing your idea. I collaborate with you — to help you expand and thoroughly think through your idea.
And I do it using a questioning technique that forces you to think about it, informing your mind so you can make the best decisions for yourself.
