Adam believes that many companies start with a good idea, but they don't push their customers for the ultimate answer: are you willing to pay for this? This leads to overly optimistic assessments of the market and future profitability. As a result, an entrepreneur may waste a lot of time on pie-in-the-sky projects that are not based in realism and eventually fail.
Schoenfeld's second start up focused on social media analytics. Part of the company's promotions were conducted by covering major events like South by Southwest and analyzing the social media interactions. Providing, free, valuable insights engendered a lot of interest and free publicity, something that combined consumer value with word of mouth advertising, and in effect, generated a lot of business leads.
