Many of us have had some successes in our life but unfortunately, most of those successes did not translate to successful business ideas. Some of them may have been ideas that just never got off the ground. In this article, we are going to discuss the concept of idea validation. Idea validation is based on the law of attraction. This law states that your unique ideas and experiences will be attracted into your life just as much as someone else’s unique ideas and experiences.
There are many experiences that many people have and they all have the same outcome. That outcome is finding a way to monetize those experiences. What makes your unique experience unique? It could be anything from what you learned in school to the experience you had when you were down in the dumps.
What is your story? Is it about struggling to find your way out? Or is it about struggling to stay afloat in a sea of virtual assistants? If it’s the latter, you need to tell that story in an interesting and unique way. You can start by sharing one of your unsuccessful ventures in the form of a blog on one of the platforms like YouTube or written content writing.
Successful Business Ideas
Let’s say you have a YouTube video called up Dance Revolution or you own a blog about virtual dance studios. You have many popular videos and some even won awards. However, it seems like more of the entries that come up through the search engines don’t get very high up in the page rank. Why is that?
Your most successful business ideas are ones that are built around an idea story that you can relate to. An example of this would be Ayogo. Ayogo is an online platform for businesses to showcase their current projects on the web in front of customers. A typical Ayogo project includes a short video about what the business does, how it grew to where it is now, and an idea story that highlights what made them successful.
What makes Ayogo so successful is the way it relates to customers. Instead of making big promises in the video or blog, the co-founders share real-life stories about what it was like to launch their business. They also share what it was like to struggle, what mistakes they made, and what they learned from those experiences. In this sense, Ayogo is about overcoming trials and tribulations. It’s also about using that same story to sell the product and market the services that the business offers.
A Much Ado
Another great idea that comes from YouTube and other forms of social media is dropshipping. Dropshipping is when a seller lists their products on an auction website, such as eBay, instead of on their own website. For example, if a product is listed on Upwork, the seller can simply list their items on eBay instead of going through Upwork. When buyers purchase these products, the company that owns the product simply ships it to the buyer.
As you can see, the best things about business ideas come from real experiences that can be used to help others. This kind of thinking is the backbone of what we call “non-profit” businesses. That’s why they are so successful today. We have just scratched the surface of the incredible number of small business ideas available to anyone who needs them.
The next time that you are thinking about starting a business, look into YouTube. Look into it first for your own self. See how it can help others in any area they need it most. You will be surprised at how many business ideas there are just waiting to be discovered by someone with a little creativity and a little passion.
Keyword research tools like Market Samurai can be an invaluable aid to finding ideas. But it’s not just researching keywords, that are important. What about keyword suggestions? Is the content of your website relevant to what the buyers of your products or services are looking for? Do your products or services make good use of SEO or other advanced search engine optimization techniques? These are just some of the questions that you should ask yourself before you go on to Google and start searching for the best ideas.
The bottom line is this. Don’t ever forget about the internet. It’s the best thing since sliced bread. If you do your research, you are going to come across many opportunities for making money online that you may never have even considered. So don’t pass them by.
