[Special Topic] Product is Ready. Where is Market Zero?

Market Zero is where new categories can establish themselves and grow. CAT FOUR COFFEE positioned itself as Yunnan local coffee, then become the first brewing coffee brand in the TikTok E-commerce platform. KaiCha, with its experience as a digital products distributor, decided to launch its first unsweetened tea drink fully offline. Now it ranks 8th in the market share of China's unsweetened tea. JiǎnFǎ Wheat selects the alkaline bread category and sold 300 million yuan in 2023, making it a dark horse brand for annual growth marked by Oceanengine

What are the learnings from their alternative approaches? How to find the market zero as efficiently as they did?
