Eat your own dog food

What is one of the best ways to find the weak spots of your great product? Well, other than talking to your users? Use your own product single every day. You and everyone on your team have to use your product more than your biggest power users. This is non-negotiable. Unless there is some obstacle, you and your teammates have to become a power users of your product.

This practice is so important and popular on the startup scene, and beyond, it even has its own name. It is “eat your own dog food”. Think about it. You are building a product you want to see in the world. It is a product you care about, hopefully. If we assume that this condition is true, why wouldn’t you and your teammates use that product on your own?

There might be some special cases that can make the use of your product hard. For example, it will be hard for a team of guys to use products such as female inserts, pregnancy test and products intended for special user group or usage. However, if your product can be used by any gender and there are no other limitations, get your hands on it. Next, convince your team.
