    Hey Anuj

    Unlike your BMC or any other tool used for internal communication, understanding, and validation, a pitch deck is targeted towards the external audience. You need to be sure of the purpose while writing your pitch deck – to represent your idea to the external audience and to make a great first impression.

    Usually you get a limited time to present your pitch deck so keep it short. Here’s what all you can include in it –

    1) Elevator pitch – a short but engaging introduction
    2) Problem – a real-world problem for which your target audience is actually looking for a solution.
    3) Opportunity – What’s the opportunity for your business?
    4) The product – How do you capitalize on that opportunity and what product do you plan to launch
    5) The business model – How will you operate? What will be your USP? And how will you make money?
    6) Competition – A full analysis of your competition
    7) Marketing – How do you plan to create a perfect positioning for your product and market it.
    8) Key Metrics – What is the progress till now, how have you validated your assumptions, and what are the future forecasts?

    I started off as an amateur blogger too. One thing that most of the amateur bloggers take for granted is marketing. People will not read your blog just because it is there. You will need to market it.

    Marketing your blog requires SEO, and SEO can be divided into two aspects – on-page and off-page.
    On page SEO involves content that’s grammatically correct and has appropriate volume of focus and long tail keywords.

    Off page SEO involves getting authority links, building your name outside your blog, building a brand for your blog, etc.

    A startup pitch deck also known as investor pitch deck or a pitch deck is a tool used to communicate your startup idea/ business idea to your audience with a view of raising capital for your business. It is generally in presentation form consisting of 15-20 slides explaining your startup vision in brief. A startup pitch deck should answer all investor questions. It should engage the external audience and should clearly communicate the purpose of your business. Your pitch deck should engage the audience by telling your business story. It is should be visually appealing. Ideally a pitch deck should start with the problem statement your business will be addressing and end with future projections.

    Definitely, startup isn’t a cakewalk . It has responsibility, reliability, versatility and willingness to explore so as to improve. But core dedication and unique innovation gives you big opportunity to take the risk of being original ultimately. You will be challenged but work will be recognised. Nevertheless, the joy and pride of building something from scratch is sure to fill you up with a positive energy which gives lot of confidence . Amid the responsibilities, you enhance the process of learning. So it’s a good idea I suggest.

  1. Honestly, it depends on the task. An MVP like Buffer's MVP might take just two-to-three days while a complex MVP can take around 1 to 1.5 years.

    Hi Manushree, a Beta Launch is something that is not completed,and by that I mean that there will still be bugs to work out.
    Basically, launching your product before fixing bugs, performance issues, and scalability issues will put your product in the hands of customers earlier and will thus provide feedback on implementation and market demand faster.Launching your product in beta, knowingly releasing an unfinished product with known bugs and unknown bugs to users, is a great way to identify and rid its most critical bugs, usability friction, and bad performance before releasing it in its finished version. However, releasing your product in beta will also provide a number of other possible benefits.

    Some of the greatest startups come from problems people didn’t even know they had. It’s innovation.Give yourself some time. You should have a lot of control over the rate at which you turn yours into a prepared mind, but you should have less control over the stimuli that spark ideas when they hit it. It takes time to come across situations where you notice something missing. And often these gaps won’t seem to be ideas for companies, just things that would be interesting to build. Which is why it’s good to have the time and the inclination to build things just because they’re interesting.
    Live in the future and build what seems interesting. Strange as it sounds, that’s the real recipe.

    This totally depends on your skill, labor or expertise and expense of course. Like if you have a hand in cooking, you can sell your recipes or own a bakery. If you are expert in management, then create your online site and start selling your products. One can become publisher for their own books too.
    Keep in mind, it can be easy but should be innovative to create its own space in the world i.e. recognition. This way you can easily select what’s easiest and affordable
