It’s that time of the year where you begin to look at some small startup business ideas in 2015– and beyond. Before you even begin to look, you’ve gotta decide some important things first…
So, what are some of the best small startup business ideas in 2015?
Well, that’s gonna depend on who you ask. If you ask someone from Silicon Valley you’ll get one answer, if you ask a franchiser they’ll give you another answer, and if you ask a top double diamond network marketing superstar, you’ll get an entirely different answer all together.
Where does one make sense of it all?
Well, the best plan of action is to always start with what you know best. Do you have an existing product or service? Can you turn your interests and hobbies into a lucrative business? Do you even know if there are enough buyers in your marketplace? This is the time where you want to carefully do your research.
Now if you discover that your favorite hobby cannot be made into a business or if you learn that there isn’t a huge buyers market for your existing product or service, then you’ll want to do the next best thing – and that’s sell other peoples products.
When it comes to finding small startup business ideas in 2015, you’ll want to find what people are already buying. This is the fastest way to get into profit faster when you already know what people want and what they’re willing to buy.
Small Startup Business Ideas in 2015 Doesn’t Include Being a Category Creator?
If you have an idea for a product or service that doesn’t exist already, you can bring that idea to market and hope for the best. You could be that bold creator and take a daring chance that your new innovative idea is something that people need…even if they never knew it even existed before.
After all, Topsy Tail the inside-out ponytail creator never had an audience of buyers until it created a strong desire for women to wear their hair this way. The creator of that gizmo and the other category creators took a gamble that paid off big time.
Now in the back of their minds I’m sure they knew that there was always a strong chance they would fail and fail miserably.
The problem with category creators is that you only hear about the ones that succeeded.
What about the ones who failed and ended up losing everything they put on the line? No one talks about them. And there’s much more of them then there is of those who rolled the dice and made it.
But the question you really want to ask yourself is, “how much risk do I really want to take?”
Sure you can be a category creator and hope that luck’s on your side, but why would you want to do it at this point in the game when you’re trying to get a foot in the door? In nearly most cases you don’t want to be that category creator. Do what’s been proven to work and you’ll be so much further ahead in the game.
