- Focus on ideas?
Ideas are essential. You need ideas to stay relevant in your business. You need ideas to make an impact in your marketing. You need ideas to build your tribe on social media. New ideas help your business to progress. When you run out of ideas, you will eventually run out of business. You can’t keep doing the same thing year after year and expect new results. Our culture is ever evolving – your company should be too.
You have to meet the demands of your industry and audience… that only happens when you spend time pondering new and improved ways to do business. Innovation is key to your success. Ideas are just as important to your business lifeline as the money you have coming in. It is all connected. How do you think legacy brands stay in business? They continue to add a new idea on classic product. For example, look at Coca Cola’s innovative ‘Share a Coke’ campaign, which produces cans and bottles with names and terms of endearment like ‘Bestie’ on them. People love seeing their name in print, and the idea that drinking a Coke brings them closer to another person! That was a genius idea to get people drinking and sharing a classic soda.
Your next big breakthrough will come from your next big idea! Whether it’s a bigger market share, new marketing strategies, or larger profits – it all starts with your ideas.
2. Ideas are the beginning point of all fortunes.
Think of all the great enterprises – they all started with an idea! The Waltons created Walmart based on the idea of selling large amounts of products at low prices. Microsoft was created when Bill Gates had an idea to create an operating system anyone could use. Tiger Woods has amassed a fortune based on the idea that he could be the greatest golfer alive. The vast Walt Disney Company enterprise all started from the idea of creating entertaining videos about a friendly character named Mickey Mouse. Amazon.com was founded on the simple idea that people would want to shop for books online. What great idea is lying dormant inside you that could change the world?
One big idea can get you out of the rut in which you’ve been stuck. One idea can dramatically increase your bottom line. One inspired idea can change your bank account in as little as one day! Great men and women become great because of the greatness of their ideas.
Every great business, every great leader and every great enterprise starts with a great idea. The level of your ideas will determine the level of your outcome!
3. What can new ideas do for me?
In today’s economy, new ideas are the path to big success. Without grand, inspired ideas, our world would be very different. The automobile, the personal computer, the smartphone, the coffee maker – all of these wonderful innovations started with an idea. There are ideas inside you that can change the world and solve problems for the masses. You have unique experiences, knowledge and wisdom that the world needs. Without a big idea, though, you’ll never reach the market like you should!
If new ideas can change the world at large, they can change your world, too. The idea for a new product or service can make your business more profitable. The idea for a new advertising campaign can cause your sales to increase like never before. The idea for a new revenue stream can make you money while you sleep and buy you more freedom. The breakthrough you’ve been waiting for is hiding behind your next big idea!
“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
- Ok, I’m convinced that ideas are important. How do I get new ideas?
This is where many entrepreneurs get stuck. They know that they need big, new, inspiring ideas to move forward, but they think they’re not creative. They think they just don’t have quality ideas inside them. Because they don’t have amazing ideas randomly popping into their head, they think those ideas don’t exist.
The good news is, you do have amazing ideas inside you! The key is to know how to extract your ideas and take action on them.
