Get a handle on trends.
You have to know the rules before you break them. You have to understand the trends before you set them.
Trends come and go. Trends are created. It’s not easy - its actually quite complex. Trends are built, manufactured and honed. They can be built long term - forced onto the market until the market has no choice but to pay attention - Electric Cars. Or they can spring up quickly and die just as quickly - Tablets.
Whatever the case may be - having some understanding of market trends can only help you in the product creation process. You can jump on the bandwagon and try to ride the trend train, or you can branch out and create a trend on your own. The trick is to get people on your side. That might not be easy, but at leas you’d know where to start.
This series of content is a small experiment. I pledged to create a piece of content on my site for the next 365 days. You can read the opening post here. The posts aren’t limited to thoughts or ideas, they’re really just a way for me to create original content. If you got any feedback/questions, please reach out. Thanks for looking.
