Many marketers and salespeople are very good at the art of “test marketing.” They know exactly what their ideal customer would be like, and they know exactly how to maximize that ideal customer’s interest and to sell them things. They are great at making promises and convincing people. We make promises by setting ourselves up for failure, as we are all guilty of making promises and selling ourselves short. We should not make promises to our own self.
Some of the worst test marketing I’ve ever seen is when a company actually tells their customers, “We’re going to change our product.” It’s like they’re saying, “You think our product is good, but you’re wrong. Here’s what you’re going to get.
If there is a product that we think is good, we should be able to back up the claims with facts. Companies should not be telling us we are wrong, because we will do exactly what they say if theyre wrong.
The sad part of all this testing is that companies, themselves, are not allowed to provide us with facts. Its like saying, We know our product is good, but we dont want to give you the facts so that you can tell us about the problems. We will do exactly what they say if theyre wrong, because we shouldnt have to pay for this kind of lie.
The real problem is that you can only tell if a website is good or bad, by looking at the results. If they have a bad site you have to keep looking. But you can never really be sure whether the problem is with your site, or your visitors.
The whole point of test marketing is to avoid wasting time finding out about your product or business that’s not going to work for you. Test marketing is often used to find out if customers are interested in a certain product or service. Test marketing could also be called market testing, market research, market research, customer research, user research, market research, market testing, market study, and many other names.
There are many ways to test your product or service. You can ask people to do surveys, ask them to give their opinions in focus groups, or you may even hire a professional market research firm to do your research for you.
The idea of testing is that you use different strategies or methods to test your product or service against, and what would work best for, your target population. Some of these strategies are focused on collecting the opinions of consumers and getting a response from them, and some are focused on analyzing the needs of the target population.
We’re talking about testing a product or service to see if it’s a winner. I think this is one of those “what works for my audience” questions that people are usually too lazy to answer. We’ve seen a lot of people who are too busy to do market research try to use the data gathered from surveys as a way to make their product better.
I say this not to scare people off, but to point out that if you can test a product or service and determine if you have a winner, you can do pretty much anything you want with it.
