How to come up with a good idea?
Ok I know it can be pretty hard sometimes to find a niche/topic to start profiting on. Here are ways to make it easier for yourself:
Start by looking at the problems in your life: People who have problems actively search the internet for a solution to their problem whether it's health, financial or any other kind of problem. If you cant seem to find a problem which you would likely Google then carry on to the next step.
Look at other people's problems: Firstly look at people around and close to you, like family. People usually know and stay informed on what's happening in their family. Like for instance if your brother suffers from heavy acne you would probably know a fair bit about his symptoms, so focus on that where you would have an edge over others.
Things you are good at, or that you are interested in: Everyone has his or hers specialized field, something you are good at. Some lucky one's have more than just one, but believe me everyone at least has one thing they are good at whether it is sport related, gossip or even being a good listener everything counts. Now grab a piece of paper and write down a list of 10 or so of your talents, things you are good at or general interests.
Hobbies: Now this goes hand in hand with what you are good at, cause we usually stick to what we are good at. But make sure you keep this in context with your goal of making money online, Ok. If your hobby is not profitable or has no commercial value, then you are wasting your time. But keep thinking or even ask the help of others, like friends and family.
News: News can be anything, from the news broadcast at seven, daily newspapers to the radio etc. Whenever something is new, whenever something big happened you can be sure of the fact that it will be broadcasted ASAP on the news. For instance look at Google trends, this service rides on news. . . It will always pitch up first in the news and is ready for you to come along and snap it up.
Magazines: They usually follow up on what's happening in the news or they simply provide you with their own news headlines, new innovations, tips, techniques an overall guidance to finding something new and popular. They also offer good insight and articles for a niche, if you have already picked one. Remember these guys spend a lot of money on market research and human behavior aspects so don't forget it.
Lastly keep your ears pitched and Listen: Keep your ears pitched for news on the latest and greatest products, whether you pick up on something at work or one of your friends asks you. . . Hey have you heard about the new so and so. . .
