How many customers/users have you talked to? What did you ask them? 
We’ve conducted online surveys across dozens of college campuses (960 responses), and conducted user interviews with students who have not previously used our products (~60 students). In the interviews, we asked the students to try out the products (we were sitting next to them) and gave them an open forum to say anything they didn’t understand, or bring up any additions they would find useful. This also gave us a window into how people are using our products (what they use the most/click on first) that aren’t always clear in the analytics. 

Moreover, we’ve of course received a lot of feedback and suggestions from many of the thousands of students who have used our products, and considered their suggestions during periods of product development.
