Re: [newtech-1] Consumer Pain

Willingness to Pay is different than the identification of consumer pain points. That comes first before you determine how you monetize your "solution" and what the appropriate price point is. The first step is being curious enough to identify customer pain points.

Isn't the general rule that consumers don't pay to reduce their pain like businesses will?  That's why all those social networks try to get huge.   Get big and worry about profitability later.  It's funny to watch people to complain that their free, or $2, app doesn't give them more.

I'd be careful to verify that consumers will actually pay.

Great question, PJ. Innovation often starts with this inquiry.

Hey Newtechies,

Please indulge me in participating in my one-question research study :)

Q: As a consumer, what are your biggest pain points? (This could be about anything you pay money for - movies, groceries, vehicles, electronics, food, appliances,  vacation packages, etc.)


P.S. If you're an entrepreneurial techie who wants to do good for consumers, contact me!
