Why is it a good idea to start with a small group of people?

limited sources in startups
  1. Startups are limited with resources and time, so can't focus on 100s of things at once
  2. Focusing on a single buyer persona helps you create things faster, thereby helping to validate the right product-market fit.
  3. You know the right path and improvise things depending upon the feedbacks.

“Can my brother use this?”

Building Your Own Custom Niche

The right way to visualize your ideal customer would be to be super-specific. That being said, let's not forget the psychographics and emotional side. These two act as a catalyst to increase your conversions.

People Don't buy the product they buy the solution

Everyone likes to make their work easy. We look for solutions that solve a major problem. To make sure that the solution is on the right track it is important to keep validating the product.
