Build a Business MVP in just a few clicks

What is an MVP?

A minimal viable product (MVP) is a stripped-back version of your product that has  just enough features for customers to understand what you’re offering and if it appeals to them. This lean method of building a business is used by top entrepreneurs around the world to save time and resources while guaranteeing their business’s success. 

Think of it this way. If the problem you’re solving is convenience or speed of transport, you shouldn’t just jump right into building rocket shoes. That’s expensive and requires a lot of effort. So, if it turns out no one wants to buy it, you’ll be in trouble. Following the lean methodology, you’d start by launching a skateboard!

Next, based on the market’s responses, you can see if customers want the offer and get feedback early on. This is the key to minimising your costs. 

Most successful businesses that you can think of in the past 15 years have used this MVP lean method to get going:

Dropbox launched as a single, lo-fi demo video to observe if users were interested in their offer before they even began building their product. 

When starting Zappos, the founder took photos of shoes at stores and posted them on a landing page to see if anyone would be willing to purchase a pair online. It turned out that customers liked this model, so he started building it out. 

How do I build one? 

The first MVP that you should build is a landing page (often referred to as a ‘fake door test’) which is a standalone web page created for one specific goal: testing out demand.

Launching a landing page costs nothing as you can design and launch a landing page for free or at minimal costs with Squarespace and Wix. Additionally, it cuts down on launch time as you can have your business up and running in less than 4 weeks.

All you need on your landing page is:

  • Business name 
  • Value proposition statement: We help X (target customers) do Y (the problem you’re solving) by doing Z (the solution).
  • Call-to-action (CTA): Sign up for our newsletter, register for our beta version, sign up for the waitlist, and try this now
  • Photo of your product: You don’t need to have your product ready, just use stock photos or a mock-up 

Let’s hear some success stories
