How To Find Business Idea

Every business start with an idea, and from there it slowly grows into a big business. How do you find your business idea? This has always been a challenging issue many people faced when they want to start their business. They spend times thinking about it, check on the internet or asking around, day dreaming and at the end never start the business at all.

Finding business idea
I wish to share with you what I learned from other experts, How To Find Business Idea for your online business and turn it into a profitable business. With the following 5 simple steps, you can start your online business at ease:

Step 1: Choose the correct type of “Online Business”

The perfect type of “Online Business” I find out, is creating and selling “digital teaching products” online. What is Digital Teaching Products? You may want to ask me. It is actually referring to e-books, online courses, online memberships, and all the related products or services that can be done online. Importantly, all these digital teaching products teach people to solve a specific problem or get a specific result from your product.

For example, you can write a 100-page e-book and sell it online. Many people are starting to do this and some of them took only 3 weeks to complete their e-book and they can continue to sell it for 10 years or more, and help them earn US$100, 000 in sales for a year. It is in fact a very profitable business to start your online business.

As long as your business idea is helping people to solve their problem, people are willing to buy from you. Business ideas like relationship problem, health issue, improve productivity, expand business, widen social networking skills, get fit, and much more are hot topics you can write about in your e-book or creating contents on your blog and website.

Other business ideas you can consider:

  • teaching people to play poker
  • how to plan their weddings
  • teach your parrot to talk
  • how to solve your erectile problem
  • how to be successful with women/men
  • search engine for video streaming services (like JustWatch)
  • book review sharing site (like Goodreads)

For those from Singapore, you may want to read about this article “10 Real Ways to Earn Money Online Singapore” posted on SGJobs.org giving you some business ideas. My favorites are “Start Your Own Blog and Monetize” and “Affiliate Marketing”. Let’s start to create your own destiny now.

Step 2: Find Your Genius And Share With The World

Every one of us is created differently and we have our own unique strengths which other do not have. Find it and show it to others. No one can be better than you and only you are capable of doing it yourself. The moment you were born is uniquely different from others. The timing, date, surrounding, parent, environment and all around you are unique and special. No one in this world has the same experiences and encounter you have in this world. You are special, you are unique, therefore show to the world all these differences.

Like me, I am good in running and I can share with others and teach and guide others how to run faster, longer and better. When creating content on running, I can include products related to running on it and start selling those products. If I wish to expand my professional services, I can conduct running lessons for others. All these business ideas can turn into a profitable business online.

Currently, I know a lot about creating website and know where to host my website and what are the best online affiliate marketing course people can learn from. I can refer them to all these sources and earn commission from it. It is called affiliate marketing business model. This kind of business is getting popular and everyone can start with it at very low cost and do it at their own time and schedule.

Step 3: Target Your Audience For Your Online Product

There are billion of people on the internet and all of them have their unique needs and wants. It is difficult to fulfill every one of them. Each of them wants products or services that cater to their own needs. Therefore, you need to solve their problems in order to win them to buy your online product.

When people are searching product online, they want something that able to solve their problems, the products or services that serve their needs. It is important that you create product specifically for certain group of people, not to sell your product to every one in this world. The more specific you target those people you want to solve their unique problem, the higher chance for them to buy from you.

For example, you want to help those people who are 50 years old and above, and have loss their job and want to create their own business without taking much business risk. You need to find their pain point and find a suitable solution to meet their needs. Only when your solution matches to their want, they will be willing to listen and buy your product.

Some of them called this narrowing your niche to those people who are highly to buy from you, instead of selling to everyone in this world. This is a smart strategy to adopt, even in the corporate business world.

buy your products

Step 4: Creating An Online Product People Want To Buy

If your product is not what people want to buy, there is no point of creating it. Knowing what product people already want to buy, it is a very important concept you need to understand. Focus less on what you want to teach for your digital teaching product, and more on what people already want to buy.

There is one resource which you need to tap on, it is called Google. Google has very powerful tool you can use to find what people want. By researching on Google, you will find out what product people already want to buy. Other than google, I also discovered other tools which I am using right now to do my research and utilize all these tools for my online business. Feel free to check it out these tools I am using now, even this article was written by one of the tools inside this wonderful platform. You may click below banner to discover what I am using.

Step 5: Use A Proven Blueprint To Start Your Online Business

Have your heard people talking about “Do not reinvent the wheel”? This is true in the business world, especially when you have limited budget and do not have much time to waste. A lot of businesses failed because they want to create new thing from their raw idea. It is good to have your original idea which no one have in this world, but it will take you a lot of your times and resources.

Tablet’s idea was not from Apple originally. The product concept were developed and came up from other companies before Apple, but Apple managed to get the idea and make improvement on it. This is one way we can create our online business by leveraging on other existing resources on the internet.

I have a proven blueprint which I discovered when I was searching for Affiliate Marketing business to start with. You can check it out and sign-up for free as starter membership to explore all the tools in the platform. Once you are comfortable with this proven blueprint which hundred thousands of members already on board, you can move up your value to be premium member anytime.

Never too late to start a business

Even at the age of 50 years old, it is not too late to start your own business. In western countries, many people start new careers in their 60s rather than retiring to stay at home. In fact, it is even better to create your own business at this age because you would have gain a lot of useful experiences and wide industry knowledge in the real world outside. 🙂

Examples of Seniors Starting own business

Everyone know KFC and the founder of famous Kentucky Fried Chicken, Harlan Sanders (better known as “Colonel Sanders”). He spent nearly a lifetime trying all kinds of jobs without success and finally he hit big at the time when he was 66, selling his successful kind of frying chicken.

Also, we know McDonald, the popular fast-food chain. It was setup by the milkshake mixer salesman Ray Kroc, when he was 52 and decided to buy over a hamburger shop and become the owner.

Older adults are growing rapidly in the developed world, as such we need society to help them live well at the old age and continue to make contribution to the society. An ageing population will put heavy burden on its country health care system. Online business is the best opportunity for seniors to start a new career and make a living themselves.

With more and more people using Internet to find information, watch movie, listening to music, perform research, etc. This creates many opportunities for us to do online business.

What is the best Affiliate Marketing training?

Are you looking for the best affiliate marketing training so you can sign up for it?
Indeed I was searching for it online after I attended one affiliate marketing event locally and decided to find out more about it on the internet.

At the event, I almost sign-up for it but because of the organiser behaviour I did not take the offer. The speaker introduced their affiliate marketing program at first with more than 2 thousand dollar course fee but gradually he reduced to about 1 thousand dollar to attract people signing up. At first, I thought the training going to be held at weekend on the following week but due to my schedule I not able to make it. I spoke with the speaker/organiser any other day available for it to sign up but was informed no at all and they try to ask me to sign up on the spot.

Feeling not very flexible in their offering I left the venue and went home to search more about what affiliate marketing is all about. It was during that night when I google for affiliate marketing topic Wealthy Affiliate website shown up. After reading up the website introduction, I sign up for the free membership, since it is free for me to register.

It was about one month later, I decided to sign up for the premium membership and to enjoy the cheaper discount rate I go for full year membership at US$359 which workout to be US$29.92 per month. This is much cheaper if I pay US$49 each month. I would encourage you to sign up for full year, if you are serious about creating your own business and this small investment is worth to take on.

Comparing this US$359 I paid for the full year premium membership at Wealthy Affiliate, with the one thousand dollar I would have paid for at the local event affiliate learning course, Wealthy Affiliate is much much cheaper.

Focus On Today And Now

One thing I learned today from Dale Carnegie book – How to stop worrying and start living, is the advice from Sir William Osler – who has organized the world-famous Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. When he was a young medical student, one day in the spring of 1871 he read words from Thomas Carlyle that helped him lead a life free from worry: “Our main business is not to see what lies dimly at a distance, but to do what lies clearly at hand.”

Think about just today and do your ulmost best for the day. Do not worry about the past and the future. Just focus on today and now, the present. Do what lies ahead of you at hand, and do what you can see now. Past is past and future is uncertain, therefore stop worry about all these and put your effort on now, the present time that is with you.

How To Success In Online Business

With the growth of smartphone adoption, more businesses are setting up online and this lead to strong competition among all the online businesses. In order to succeed, there are important things which we need to do in order to attract and engage customers to do business with us.

Give customer the best deal and highest value

To win the heart of our customers, we need to understand their problems, desires and serve them well and this require us to be an expert in that field. We can help our client by providing free training to them, educate them what are the necessary skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their business. By helping them eventually help our business, this is the new business strategy we need to adopt.

We must be a valuable resource for customer to refer when they need help and advise. By emphasising of giving the highest value to them, we create value for them to approach us. Offer online resource of free information is a very effective platform to attract new customers.

Every body want to do business with someone who knows what they are doing and saying. Customer want us to help them with their problems so they can stop searching for the solution.

A lot of companies are reluctant to give and they want to receive or get commitment from their customers, before they start doing their business. By giving first to get later is a better business solution to your customers. When customer receive the solution from you with your help, they will reciprocate back and do business with you willingly. As long as your give do not lead you to be broke, it is absolutely right to give first and receive later.

When you freely share with others your expertise and experience, you are not giving away yours and all your expertise and experience still with you. You are just sharing them with others. By sharing with others, and they will appreciate what you have offered and they will return with more to you.

Getting business from customer require them to first know you, and second to like you and eventually trusting you. The combination of know + like + trust will lead to believe in you. With this success formula, you will have the business from that customer.

Be useful to your customers

To succeed in this competitive world, you must focus energy on creating useful information your customers want. Stay relevant to their needs and they will pay for it.

Today customers have more information than before and they can easily access internet for any information they want. Self-serve information is everywhere and most customers utilise it for their purchase decision.

People want to know how your products and services will solve their problem and they want to know why your solution is better than others, especially your competitors.

For consumer products, most of them buy for one of the 2 reasons. Either they like to have pleasure (for example relaxing, good food, becoming popular) or they wish to reduce pain (like stress, poor health, financial problem). When you are communicating with them, tell them the benefits of your products and services.

Building trust

Search engines love blog content therefore you need to have a good content platform to publish right contents for them to find you. You can expand more articles, workshops and ebooks on your platform.

Creating social media profiles on LinkedIn, Facebook, BusinessWeek, Entrepreneur, Inc. Online magazine communities. You can build rich profiles and get all the links, images, and videos pointing back to your website. Ratings and reviews sites are useful content hubs you can connect and participate in to get more exposure to increase your online presence.

A content telling people what makes your company different, how your company approach customer service and why your company do what it do will build more trust in their heart. Presentations, workshops, and seminars are very effective ways to provide education and allow deep engagement with the customers. FAQs allows value of information packaged in a simple format and help position your company favourably against competition. Telling success stories of how your customers succeed through the use of your product or service offerings help people learn from others.

Try to answer below questions and put that within your content. You will have the right content to attract potential customers to your site:

  • What are the top 5 results your customers want to achieve?
  • How your offerings different from your competititors?
