Product Testing FAQs: Benefits of Pre-Launch Product Testing


  • Why is product testing important?

    Product testing allows you to validate product quality, performance, and attributes. This helps to identify areas for improvement before launch. When you use reliable product testers who align with your target market, you get critical, real-world feedback. You can then efficiently apply this feedback to your product development process. Product testing can also catch catastrophic product issues before going to market. This way, you’ll be sure the product you’re launching is exactly what your target audience is looking for.


  • Should friends, family, and coworkers be included in product tests?

    The risks of including family, friends, or colleagues to test your products can be great. They may not be representative of your target market, may not be qualified to provide feedback on your specific product, may not be honest about their opinions, and are often significantly less responsive than product testers. While including friends, family, and coworkers may be less concerning with larger sample sizes like concept test surveys, the risks associated with these testers within smaller product tests should be considered.


  • Why should I use the MESH01 product testing platform?

    MESH01 provides a significant advantage for your product testing process by integrating a vast community of relevant and reliable testers and actionable feedback right into a purpose-built product testing platform. With MESH01, you don’t have to recruit and manage qualified testers.

  • What should I look for in a product tester?

    A critical step to ensuring you receive valuable, timely feedback is to confirm that your product testers match your target customer criteria before starting the product testing process. Accessing information beyond simple demographics is essential. To effectively accelerate your accurate product tester recruitment, you’ll need deep tester information, which is available on the MESH01 product testing platform.
