Conducting customer interviews for the reluctant, with Asia Orangio of DemandMaven

Hi Bootstrappers,

I'm taking a break from the podcast for a few weeks. Meanwhile Peldi from Balsamiq is stepping in as host for a mini-season.

Peldi Guilizzoni continues this mini-season as he chats with Asia Orangio of DemandMaven on how founders can - and should - conduct customer interviews, and how to deal with the discomfort us bootstrappers often feel with this type of work.

Topics includes

  • the discomfort for some of us of talking to customers - but why you should do it anyway
  • how to find the right customers to talk to
  • why delegating customer interviews might actually be a good idea.
  • how to actually conduct a customer interview
  • what not to say,  and how not to ask questions

Listen to this week's episode of Bootstrapped.

Until next time,
