Wouldn’t it be awesome to have that one HUGE idea that will catapult you to the good life?
To create the next SpaceX, Microsoft, Amazon or Tesla?
Sadly, the reality is that ideas are a dime a dozen, and 99,9% of them never even get to the business planning phase.
Taking your ideas and turning them into profitable start-ups seems to be a talent possessed by a precious few.
Well, based on my experiences, I have come up with some tips and suggestions to help jumpstart your idea generation, and create something truly great.
Don’t be tempted to try and get your new product or service in front of as many eyes as possible, as soon as you start. Rather create something a small number of people will fall in love with first.
This will give you the opportunity to gauge the levels of positive and negative feedback towards your idea. That way you can test the waters and tweak your offering and message to ensure that you’re actually giving your customer base what they want (and not what you think they want).
2. Make something worth talking about.
Your goal, as a start-up, is to create something people love. Look at some of the most successful businesses of our time. How many products, services or phone apps are you using today because someone you know told you about how awesome, simple and amazing they were?
At a basic level, your idea should be something that people will want to rave about to their friends. Once you have achieved this, it will spread like wildfire.
