In her Learn Inbound talk, Stacey shares the tactics and tools that she and her team use to come up with ideas, develop them and then test them before investing too heavily in production.
- Most brainstorming sessions fail when the energy goes out of the room. You need to give people at least two days to prep and come up with ideas.
- When assessing how feasible an idea is, you need to determine if it’s: timely, relevant, unexpected, new, close to home, or has human interest.
- Sanity check the idea by getting external opinions. You can use Google consumer surveys as a guide, or Reddit (Only if you have thick skin!)
- Don’t overthink ideas as some things just work and the reason may not be so clear during the initial brainstorming session.
