Getting LOIs

Gathering Insights for Validation:

Engage potential customers for validation
Keep conversations relaxed and genuine
Open with: "I'm exploring solutions in your domain. Can you help me understand your workflow and main challenges?"
Listen intently, let them express fully
Propose potential solutions
"What features are crucial for you?"
"Would you invest in a solution like this?"
Probe: "What's a reasonable price for such a solution?"
Emphasize your commitment to addressing their pain points
Collect detailed feedback to shape your product
Highlight product's potential while focusing on the immediate Minimum Sellable Product (MSP)
Utilize surveys for scalable data collection

Procedure for LOIs:

Express need for an LOI to further the product
Seek a verbal commitment first: "Would you be open to providing a Letter of Intent?"
Secure a written LOI for official validation.
