Book review - How to get your product to market by Louise Guinda
“The biggest problem most people with great ideas have is just not knowing where to start and what to do. I think that’s the greatest barrier to market” - Patrick Mathews, Breffo
This is a quote from page 109 of How to get your product to market by Louise Guinda, which nicely sums up the purpose of this book
This book goes a long way to solving this problem. It is a step by step guide which can assist an entrepreneur in taking the idea in their head and turning it into a reality in the market place.
Written in easily digestible chapters covering topics such as ensuring that the idea is new, checking that a market for the product actually exists, and manufacturing and prototypes, the book takes the reader on a journey through the process of becoming an entrepreneur.
Each chapter includes a tip, based on the subject of the chapter, and a handy ‘Chapter Wrap-up’ reiterating the main points of the chapter.
It helps that the writer herself is an inventor and entrepreneur and has been there, done that, and has now written the book.
I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who has come up with a product idea, and who wants to bring it to the market.
