“With a startup, your launch is never going to be perfect. You always have branding ideas, features you want to incorporate, and many other aspects you’d like to include. However, you just can’t do everything before launching your product. At what point should you hold off until things are good enough and when should you just bite the bullet and put it out there?”
“With the tools that are available to us today, it just makes sense to test a product before releasing a big launch so you can get feedback. Is it a good idea to offer the customers from the test a lower price? What if it’s not financially possible to ‘grandfather’ them in after the initial launch / test phase?”
