Warning Signs You Have A Shitty MVP

Firstly, we’ve all been there. I built a shitty MVP before that cost me $17k and 6 months of wasted effort. But I wish I really read this piece back then.

Signs of a shitty MVP:

  • Doesn’t feel like a Mafia offer
  • The product is doing too much or feels overwhelmed with use cases

Signs of a strong MVP:

  • A particular type of customer is dying to pay for it to use it
  • They are bragging about it to their friends
  • It solves for one clear use case better than anything else in the market
