This Business Idea Generator is designed to poke your brain into thinking of new ideas.
It's based off this formula I used over the years to sell millions of dollars worth of my own and other people's products.
The formula is.....
All this generator is doing is randomly filling in those slots with different ideas. Sometimes the result will be amazing, sometimes the result will be nonsense.
It's up to you to decide what you think will be a fair value for your product or service:
Make sure to write down or save your ideas. You never know what a single idea can turn into!
Business Ideas:These ideas are to make you think of targeting a specific service at a specific industry. Manytimes people get too broad on their services and end up not targeting anyone.
For example: Maybe there's a web designer who can make websites, but markets them to everyone. He never specializes or identifies a target audience. With this business idea generator he might get the idea of making websites specifically to lawyers. Now that he knows his target audience, it makes his job of finding clients easier. Now instead of looking for "anyone who needs a website", he can focus exclusively on the small community of "lawyers in Austin who need websites."
Consulting Ideas:This "consulting" part of generator looks for ideas you can quickly make money from based off your skill set. Let's say you're good at filming videos and editing them. Maybe you can post on Facebook, Craigslist, specific Facebook Groups, and other places that you offer this service.
By simply stating "For $199 I will film your day and edit it in 24 hours" you may instantly get some takers since your offer is crystal clear.
This is a great starting-off point for anyone looking to start earning a little extra money on the side. I've also written a guide to Consulting As A Side Job if you need further help and templates on how to bring in money like this.
You can try many multitudes of services depending on your own skills!
