Every year, millions of dollars are spent marketing products (or services) that fail. Companies would love to get all that money back.
Fortunately, you happen to have a functioning time machine that you bought on Craigslist. As a result, you have one chance to fix what went wrong in the marketing research process and convince one of those companies not to spend that money.
