Introducing HelloX: User Insights From Around The World

Posted by on February 27th, 2017

Starting a business is daunting. And how you start out can massively factor into whether your business succeeds. So it is best to start out on the right foot. Our remote design company, Melewi has been part of dozens of such journeys, working side-by-side with businesses from around the world. Over the years, we’ve shared and gathered a wealth of insights and processes. It’s now time to pay it forward.



What do you need to start up a startup?

Well, apart from a cracking business idea and ideally a core of fantastic people to help bring your idea to market – you need a wealth of knowledge and insights about your target audience and where you should launch your product.
Without these insights, you could end up launching in an area that has no serviceable market. You won’t know what type of content or social strategy to put together to sell it, to your desired customer base and you could be walking into a situation that will tie you up in unnecessary bureaucracy.



The Ultimate Q&A

Introducing HelloX: User Insights From Around The World

In January, we launched AskMelewiAnything – a free service where we give an hour of our time to startups and businesses to share our expertise and give guidance. Startups and established businesses from around the world are using this time to consult with us on everything from product strategy, to design review, to business model. No question is too big, too weird or too small.

And while it’s free, it is not a half-baked service that we have pulled together for good publicity.

This is a maximum effort affair. We genuinely care and want to give back. Without the help and advice, we received from business individuals, mentors and other startups we wouldn’t be where we are today – And now is our chance to pay it forward.


The result of AskMelewiAnything

With the popularity and success of AskMelewiAnything, we noticed a trend of questions geared towards how to gain insights into, not only the markets they are currently in but want to be in – As well as, how to understand on a detailed level the users who will hopefully take up their products.
