Do you have it in you to start a unique business?
It is always better to be sure that you have those entrepreneurial instincts before you start your venture. You can check this out:
1. Selling yourself
The main thing about advertising your product is to convince people to buy your products or services. In doing so, you will have to market yourself as trustworthy so that people believe you.
2. Avoiding mistakes
You cannot be arrogant at any cost. Another mistake often new entrepreneurs commit is starting a business without being fully prepared.
Don’t do that. Be fully prepared for any circumstances.
3. Learning new things
To establish a business and to be in the competition, you will have to keep yourself updated about the market.
4. Accepting failures
You can’t always succeed. Moreover, you might have to accept failures on the first go. So, prepare yourself for that.
When you can come up with unique startup business ideas?
According to Steve Johnson, the author of “Where Good Ideas Come From”, you can develop great ideas when:
- You explore and experiment in different areas.
- You allow your idea to develop slowly, over time.
- You are exploring and open to the idea of serendipitous connections.
- You make mistakes.
- You look for new uses for old inventions.
- You build on platforms that have come before.
How can you decide on a unique startup business idea?
There can be hundreds of business ideas in your mind but everyone might not be a feasible option. So, you need to analyze these aspects to come up with a good business idea that is profitable for you.
1. Finding out problems and providing a solution
It might not be a big problem but we often look for solutions to some day-to-day problems.
For example, storage is a huge issue nowadays, especially if living in a small apartment. So, if you have that innovative mind, you can offer a solution to that problem to your customers.
You can design some space-saving furniture, jewelry storage, camouflaging storage, and so on. You can start this as a small-scale business and make it grow big with time.
2. Helping people to save money
Helping others is always a great idea. So, if you can come up with an idea to help people save money, you can be assured that your business will flourish.
I always think of websites that offer online budget planning. It can help you track your money wherever you are with just one click. You can even make a purchase and note it instantly.
Instead of offering the exact solution, you can also think of a startup business through which people will get an idea about which things to purchase to save money. By offering such a business, you can also be happy that you’re helping others along with earning.
3. Improving a product already existing in the market
You can think of such an idea if you have the required knowledge about the product and service. We all can find disadvantages of an existing product or service, but coming up with a solution is what can make you unique.
Before working on this venture, it is better if you study the market to see whether or not there is a demand for it. If yes and you have the solution, offer it. In most cases, your business venture will be successful.
4. Making things simpler for people
How many times have you wished that anyone or anything could make your job easier?
It is not only you and me, but many people have also thought of such options at some point in time. So, if you can provide such a solution, your business will be successful.
For example, have you ever thought about how the apps have made your life easy? You can just tie a walking app and measure the distance you’ve walked. Likewise, just a purifier attached to your tap can make water so convenient for drinking purposes.
5. Turning your hobby into a lucrative venture
All of us are passionate about our hobbies. And if you are passionate about something, you are bound to excel in that. So, find out your real passion.
Just think for a moment. For example, you might not be a very good student but you enjoy offering tuition to others. If so, you can offer online tuition to people. You can benefit others as their problems will be solved without stepping out.
Likewise, if you love to spend time with pets, you can start a pet creche. What can be more enjoyable than spending time with the furry ones and getting paid in return?
Gradually, you might need to employ people as well when your service-providing business grows. However, before doing so, check out the license requirements to avoid unnecessary stressful situations.
So, what do you need to do now? Stay calm and jot down whatever is coming to your mind. Then, talk with experienced people, analyze the pros and cons, manage the financial aspect, and start your business venture.
All the best for your startup business!
