5 Phases to Create Software Products that Will Be Perfect for Your Customers

Many developers that attempt to create their own software products to sell to their customers often start with this big idea that they had from the top of their minds.

Sometimes those ideas lead to great products but most times it does not work. Then those developers become very disappointed because they worked for many months or years on a product that in the end did not get much acceptance. Sometimes the experience of failure is traumatic and those developers do not want to try creating a software product business again.

Fortunately it does not have to be this way. There are methods like design thinking that allow you to discover great software product ideas even before you write a single line of code.

This short video gives an overview of this method so you can learn how to apply it in practice.

Insights on 5 Phases to Create Software Products that Will Be Perfect for Your Customers

On this video several insights were presented:

1. Design Thinking is 5 phase a method similar to Lean but it is different in the way it solves the users' problems

2. Phase 1 is called Empathy because you will learn about users' problems before coming up with solutions

3. Record the audio of interviews with 5 potential customers

4. Phase 2 is called Definition: Review the user interviews to find patterns of important problems to solve

5. Phase 3 is called Ideation: Come up with ideas to solve the most important problems

6. Phase 4 is called Prototyping: Create prototypes of the solutions for the users' problems

7. Phase 5 is called Testing: Ask the users what they think of your solution prototype

8. Iterate over the phases to improve the solution or pivot to another solution or solve a different problem

9. Develop the real version of the product when you are satisfied with acceptance of the solution by the users

Free Workshop of Software Product Business Creation

For the last 15 years I have been working full time in the PHP Classes site as my full time business. Many of the things I know I learned by doing it.

I made lots of mistakes, but I also got many things right to the point of gathering a large PHP community. Over the last 17 years of existence it reached 1.4 million registered users. It keeps growing at the pace of about 5.000 new registered users every month.

So I would like to share what I learned, so you do not have to spend 15 years in error and trial like I did to learn about software product business.

My goal is to build a community of successful developers that not only create nice software that they like, but also are independent and have autonomy to work on what you want. As a community we can help each other and be more successful then when we work alone.

So, to get you started, soon there will be a free workshop online in video that you can watch and learn these methods and everything else you need to know to create your own software product business the right way with low risk of failure.
