These ideas are combinations of niche industries matched to specific target markets of customers. Many of my business clients are too broad in their customer goals and thus do not connect with any buyers. Specialization is a good and powerful tool in many successful businesses. It concentrates your marketing message and can help you, the entrepreneur, laser focus for improved results.
Here’s an example of the why the good focus is key to success. Imagine a Graphic Designer who designs logos and brochures and markets to everybody. They figure every firm needs these items to launch! After using this business idea generator he discovers that designing for dentists is a profitable niche market. This narrows down and focuses his promotional activities to greater success than trying to be everything to everybody.
Using your expertise and time to sell consulting services can become a very lucrative business. Use your skill sets and sell by the hour, day or project. Are you good at installing stereo sound systems, as an example? There are many frustrated homeowners, and store owners, who cannot do this work themselves and would employ you for this project. These results are in a three-part value proposition, Price, Service and Time. Like this example “For $499 I will install your stereo sound system in 2 days”. Clear and definite statements such as this are very appealing to buyers and will generate sales.
Everyday successful new stores are opened. You could start a brick and mortar retail location selling all types of items. Click the red button and become motivated by all the different types of shops you could open such as second-hand vintage clothing store, cell phone repair shop or event space and wedding planning.
Freelancing and Gigs
The gig economy can be highly profitable for innovative entrepreneurs. Gigs are short-term jobs of limited nature and scope such as designing a website or tutoring a student. Freelancing can also be lucrative, especially for digital skills such as graphic design, web development and creative writing. Your customers can be worldwide and your office your living room. Check out the many freelancing jobs, complete with resource links, for your next achievement.
