Sean Ellis invented this validation survey to analyze whether a startup is worth working with.
Send a survey to your current users with the question “How would you feel if you could no longer use [business name]?”
Provide the following options: “Very disappointed,” “Somewhat disappointed,” “Not disappointed,” or “N/A, no longer using the product.”
If over 40% of users answer “very disappointed,” your startup has very strong growth potential.
If the opposite is true, you will have a hard time growing your startup.
