Struggling to Think of that Innovative Business Idea 5 Quick Tips to Inspire Creativity
James / Published on October 4, 2013
Would you love to start up your own business? Would you love to be your own boss?
If the answer is yes to both these questions, then keep reading.
You may want to start your own online business, but you have no idea where to begin and more importantly, you don’t have a brilliant business idea…at all.
But don’t panic because all is not lost. Just because you don’t have any innovative business ideas yet doesn’t mean you won’t ever have your own online business.
It just takes a little creativity to inspire your thinking!
Try these 5 quick tips to inspire you;
1. Look at the world through a business perspective
When you go about your daily life, try looking at the world from a different perspective. That is, a business one. Notice how things work, the processes in place and the impact on consumers (i.e you).
2. Go for daily long walks alone
Today’s modern world can be very distracting, especially with the abundance of technology which we can’t escape from. If you are really determined to start up in business then make sure you go for long walks daily. Go somewhere quiet and peaceful, and just let your mind wander. Don’t force yourself to think of a business idea – all the good ideas come naturally.
3. Find out what frustrates people
There is always those times in life when we are frustrated by something, and most of the time, it’s something that can be solved if someone came up with an invention! Think about what frustrates you in your daily life, and whether it would frustrate the majority of people. Ask your friends and family too, and you may very well come up with a creative new business idea!
4. Find out why other businesses were successful
You have to understand what makes a business work to have a successful online business. Do some research and understand the history behind successful companies. Speak to founders of companies and learn as much as you can.
5. Attend business seminars regularly and utilise LinkedIn
This one may seem like a no-brainer but you should attend as many business seminars as you can. Check out https://www.gov.uk/events-finder for business talks and events in your area. Also it’s worth joining business groups on LinkedIn and participating in discussions with other entrepreneurs and start-up businesses.
These tips are sure to spark off an amazing business idea, although it may take time, just be patient.
Good things come to those who wait!
