If you are reading this then congratulations! You are witnessing the very first post on Zempreneur. Every few days there will be new content that you will be able to utilize and integrate into your everyday routine. For today, let's start with something simple.
For all the young entrepreneurs out there, this is where you need to begin taking notes.
A good entrepreneur will just take action in order to begin working towards their goals. This is a simple idea that you should be familiar with. I want you to completely ignore that. Instead, I'm going to show you how to be a successful entrepreneur.
The difference is that you will actually see results and make progress toward your goals. For this to work, you will need to develop an idea that will make money. I will list each step for you below:
1. What is a common problem that everybody has?
2. How can you provide a solution?
3. Make it unique!
4. Make it easy to use!
Everybody struggles with similar setbacks each and every day. Every successful entrepreneur has developed a viable solution for those problems. It can be any problem, simple or complex.
After you discover the issue that everyone faces, you will need to implement a solution. It doesn't matter what it is, as long as it morally and legally takes care of the problem.
The next thing you must do is separate yourself from the crowd. How is it different from other solutions to the same problem? Can you compete in the industry? You must find a way to make your solution truly unique in order to convince someone to buy it.
You also must make it very easy and simplistic. In an age where technology is always advancing, you want to keep things simple. It may sound counterproductive, but the average person would prefer something that isn't "above their heads" in terms of technology.
A perfect example of this is Uber, the mobile app transportation service that is putting cab drivers out of business. Uber has solved a common transportation problem. People want transportation conveniently whenever they are in need of it. Whether they are drunk and need a ride home or trying to commute to work on-time, Uber provides a reliable and safe way to travel. It is unique and easy to use, utilizing mobile apps to reach their riders. This is a truly successful business!
No matter what your entrepreneurial desire may be, it is always important to follow these steps if you want to find success in your endeavors.
