Product Development: The Essentials for Success

Developing a successful product takes experience and plenty of trial and error. What the experts won’t tell you is that product development doesn’t have to be an uphill battle. You can make things easier—if you have the right help.

As experts in new product development, we’ve spent a significant amount of time helping inventors and entrepreneurs to create and launch quality products. Along the way we’ve learned a few things that could help you make a B-line to success.

Plan in Real Time

Use a cross-functional platform to keep your team onboard with recent changes to your products. Instead of using clumsy Excel files or Google Docs, investigate software that enables you to engage everyone on your team simultaneously.

Platforms like Basecamp and Slack are excellent examples that can make for easier communication and greater organization of your team. Real-time back and forth with your team gives you a better foundation to plan your product. When problems arise—and they will—this cross-platform function enables you to get the information you need quickly.

Ask for Real Feedback

Vet your early stage prototypes instead of waiting for the product to be ‘finished’. If you’re looking for prototyping services in Louisiana, ours is geared towards helping you get the feedback you need right away. This process ensures the feedback you receive is the quality required to enhance the development process.

Focus on Simplicity

If you take anything away from this article, let it be this: simplicity is the key to successful product development. A straightforward design is essential to capture the attention of your audience. Complicated designs and over-the-top features are likely to detract from the qualities your product offers.

Your product needs to capture the attention of your customers within 3 seconds to influence a purchasing decision. If they can’t understand the writing on the box, they’ll likely move on to the next product.

Clean, compelling packaging along with a product that promises exceptional results, makes all the difference in your development plan.

Use Quality Materials

This one should go without saying, but it’s worth repeating. Use quality materials in every stage of your product development. Sacrificing the quality of your product to increase your profit margin is poor product development. Instead, let quality guide your decisions. Focus on bringing your customers a product they’ll be proud to have, and one you’ll be proud to sell them.

Partner with Us!

In the end, your product is only as good as the materials and techniques used to develop it. Partnering with a team of qualified, experienced, and knowledgeable developers is the key to a successful launch.
