No One Cares About Your Revolutionary App Idea
Your idea is worthless! Too blunt? You’ll get over it because you’ll come to realize we’re right. An idea isn’t worth a damn thing. Have you ever heard of anyone getting paid for an idea? That’s because investors don’t buy ideas – they buy products.
An idea is 1% and execution is 99%.
Instagram and Snapchat are products. They were once an idea that was executed into something more. Because that’s all a product is: the execution of an idea. It wasn’t the idea of these platforms that was valued so high, it was the product.
Investors are not interested in empty ideas. They want to see the product in action. Even if it’s a measly beta version or prototype. You have now given them something they can get behind. Execution is everything. It is why startups get funded.
It’s not just coming up with an app idea, but building it. And guess what! You don’t have to code it yourself. Every app empire is built on some sort of idea. Whether it was a billion-dollar idea or something as simple as sending a disappearing photo to a friend. But the success of that singular idea is dependent on you.
Find your MVP. Focus on the bare-minimum features that your users need and execute your idea. Funding, additional features, users, etc. – that will all come once you’ve decided to turn your idea into a product.
