Michelle's 5 Tips to Your Business Idea to Market
Is it unique? Can you differentiate yourself from other competitors?
Are people looking for your service?
If you think you have the "next iPhone" yet nothing like it is around, listen in on trends and common every day conversations about whether or not people which they have something that did 3 different things, but all in one device/service. Same goes for your geographic area, is there a need for your service in the area you are setting up your business? Just because it is great that the idea of a trampoline park is thriving in one area of the nation, do you really know that it will take off in your area?
Have you tested your idea?
Test marketing your product or service gives you an ability to get valuable feedback and possibly your first sale validating your idea.
Do people like your idea or love the idea (enough to buy it)?
If you get more people waffling over buying your product, yet do get feedback that they love your business idea, you still have more homework to do. Once you have feedback, follow up with those as to what makes them want to buy it or what is making them hesitate.
How committed are you to your business idea (money, time, and knowledge)?
Do you have the time, money and knowledge to help get your idea off the ground. Some businesses take 6 months to 2 years to get off the ground and that takes a lot of commitment.
Side Note: Be willing to invest in yourself first! If you don't put in the leg work and your own money what makes you think others would trust your business idea and buy into your brand? Invest in you!
