What’s Your Next Big Idea?

Estimated reading time: 2 mins

When you’re in business for yourself, you’re always going to want to make sure that you’re growing. And to do that, you need to know what you’re going to do. Because you have to have a plan. Ideally, you’re going to know what you want to achieve with your business, and the steps you need to take to get there. But sometimes, you have no idea what the middle looks like. Or what kind of creative ideas are going to work for you. So, this is why it’s great to be looking for your next idea. To find inspiration that could be your next creative move. Let’s take a look at five different ideas.

  1. A Book

If you’re yet to create any products for your blog or business, then a great first step for you is to come up with an ebook. There are lots of way that you can do it, as Hubspot.com shows. If you’re unsure how to get started, then you can hire a designer to do the creative work and you can get to work on the writing. Then, it’s as simple as listing it for sale and making money in a passive way as the book is downloaded!

  1. A Course

As a step on from that, you could also look to launching a course. Again, you may find that a designer can help you with the imaging here. There are a range of course-building companies that you could work worth fr this, but you could also do live webinars or calls as a part of this course too.

  1. An App

The next thing that you might want to do here, is come up with an app idea. If you have a website or a blog, then you’ll already know how important mobile is. So why not extend that idea by coming up with an app? For this, you’re going to want to do your research. Take a look developers that can help you, such as Xibis.com, to create the perfect product. You can also think about monetizing the app in the future too.

  1. Coaching

From here, it might work out for you to think about becoming a coach. Do you have experience and insights that can help others? If you want to make a difference to the lives of others, the this could be the perfect idea for you to work on next.

  1. Speaking

Or maybe for you, speaking is perfect? Do you love to inspire and motivate others? Would you love to be able to speak on stages around the world and offer insight and wisdom on something that you love? Maybe you even want to host your own conference? If this is the case, you’re going to want to work o your speaking skill and start speaking for free to get experience. Hold your own events with people you know or that are already in your community before you dive on in. And then, when you’re ready, you can pitch yourself to speak!
