Coming up with the idea to run a business is a difficult part, sure. But when you get into the specifics, that’s where the problems occur. Here’s why. Because you haven’t seen much and the little you know is not enough to help you succeed in the ever-so-competitive market.

Getting to Know the Game:
Business ideas that often take birth in a mind, die in the mind. There is a certain set of rules everyone thinks we have to follow to be successful. But that’s exactly where we’re wrong. People don’t know what they want until they’ve tasted it. An example to illustrate this absurd theory is of Rent-A-Chicken. The name says it. The idea was to rent people the chickens to give them a chance to know what it is like to keep a chicken before they got some of their own and faced a problem.

Another example to help you understand the absurdity that can become a success in the market is of HangoverHelpers. This was an idea that two college students cooked up recently that allows people to call for cleaners after a party. Since they are college students with a team of people who sympathize with your situation and will definitely keep your secret, you should think of them as the third buddy who cleaned your house and offered you breakfast.

All you have to do is call them before the party and tell them the details of how you want things to be done and they’ll be there to help you clean up.
Being Better than The Competition:
“Most business models have focused on self-interest instead of User Experience.” –Tim Cook.
You can be sure that your competition is out there and if you do not do things perfectly, you will face trouble. You need to understand who you’re targeting for your business and how they want it. Whether you are starting a kitchen remodeling business, getting in the construction industry, rentals, you need to understand how the clients want to see things.
A great example of even more recent business ideas that have gained a lot of popularity is of m-Spy. The app offers so much more than its competition and at a very low cost. From phone keyloggers to iPhone tracking and android tracking and even social media apps are available to be monitored following recent updates.
You need to understand that the market is not for you. You need to make yourself for the market. Nobody knows what you’re thinking and nobody knows how it will be perceived. People like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Michael Jordan wouldn’t have gotten to where they are now if they had believed the discouraging statements surrounding them.
