To launch your startup, identify a large market then target a small segment of that market to attack first. Choose your first segment based on ease of access and a close fit to your initial product. In other words, focus on your most ideal customer, and then grow your business from there.
Most startups want to take on the world but their efforts are easily diffused. It can be difficult to be all things to all people in the early days of your startup.
You’re looking for wins, testimonials, and proof that customers will buy your product. Start with the ones who are the best fit and then expand the circle from there.
