There are many products that are considered "bad" by some, but are still successful. Two examples that come to mind are the Juicero and the Pet Rock. The Juicero was a high-tech juicer that received a lot of attention and investment when it was first released. However, it was quickly criticized for being too expensive and unnecessary, as the juice packets it used could be squeezed by hand. Despite this, the company was able to raise over $100 million in funding before eventually shutting down. The Pet Rock is another example of a seemingly silly product that became incredibly successful. In the 1970s, a man named Gary Dahl sold rocks as pets, complete with a carrying case and a "Pet Rock Training Manual." Though it was clearly a joke, the product became a phenomenon and sold over 1.5 million units in just a few months. Ultimately, the success of a product depends on many factors beyond its objective "quality." Marketing, timing, and novelty are just a few examples of the many variables that can make a product successful even if it's not objectively "good." As a product manager, it's important to keep these factors in mind when evaluating potential products and deciding how to position them in the market.
