How to start your startup, your brainchild?
Step 1. What's important!
It is necessary to prescribe criteria that must be in your project.
What is " good” for you, what you want, your ambitions and goals. What your soul is for (product / service)
Look at competitors in your niche, the market, and the ability to scale your business.
Describe the pros and cons of each selected niche in the table.
Step 2. Start to write down everything that comes to mind and keep a diary.
Write down all your thoughts on a regular basis, you need to write down everything to set up your brain to generate ideas. Set up your brain to search for opportunities.
Step 3. Look for ideas
How to search for ideas:
- Find a problem, find a solution.
As soon as we encounter a problem in life, write down how you would solve it. People are more likely to pay to solve their problems. The more urgent the problem, the more willing people are to pay for it.
- Found, duplicated, improved.
You can improve someone's idea or development. Take a ready-made business, improve, Refine and create your own
- Modify your hobby or competence.
- See what is happening in the IT sphere now.
- Take a ready-made partner with an idea. How do I analyze my idea?
How do I analyze my idea?
Step 1. Write an idea in simple language.
The idea of a business, at the very beginning, is just an idea and describes more of the result. Overgrown with faces and becomes more real it will be after you take into account the main elements, namely:
- what goals the client will achieve or how she will solve his problem, how she will help him.
- the product itself: what will the buyer pay their money for? The key point of monetization.
- CA or who is the main client: which people will you focus on first?
- sales themselves: how and by what means will you promote your idea to the "masses"?
- your niche: where can your product become a leader?
If you have several CA, you must register each one.
If you have developed a technology, it is not a product in itself, it needs to be adapted and simplified.
How the product can help a specific user.
Step 2. Do you need your product at all?
You can spend a lot of time and money on a product that no one needs.
Even for a great product, a cool value, or a good quality product or service, a business may not make money if people are not willing to pay and do not see value in it for themselves. The reasons may be different, users/ buyers are used to using a similar product for free, or they may not have the money to pay at all.
Evaluate your idea of” testable hypotheses”
- Analyze what has already been implemented, similar ideas, read the history of how businessmen started their way. What budget did the idea go into, and what problems did you have to face? You can see the potential of the niche.
- Analyze what data is available here and now on the Internet, for example, there is a great service-Yandex Wordstat.
- Study the research, hypotheses that have already been tested. Analyze the market size. Look at what happened in other regions.
