Business Ideas are more than a fleeting inspiration

Working out what is a good business idea and what is not can be fun. 

Every one has a business idea. This may be the inventor in us or perhaps we all dream of having our independence and running our own business. There are many ways to come up with business ideas. More importantly, however is how you test and validate if you business ideas will be successful.

Success is a subjective term. When I talk about success of a business idea what I really mean is ‘how likely will it be a commercial success.’ There are some fundamental questions to ask your self.

  • Who would buy your product or service
  • How many people (businesses have that need)
  • Where are these people
  • How do you find and access these potential customers
  • How much are they prepared to pay
  • What will it cost to bring you business idea to market.

These are just some of the questions I tackle in this series of blog posts. I am also regularly writing more. You may want to subscribe to my Monday Motivator Newsletter so that you can get a weekly dose of motivation.
