Look for a need and find a business idea

8 types of need you can turn into a market opportunity

I’ve created a free ebook for you to download. You can refer back to it whenever you need to dig a little deeper to find the friction in a market – the areas where a solution could smooth out any problems. Some of the aspects I cover include looking for areas to add value, hidden signs of dissatisfaction and extending potential benefits. You’ll also find examples of the companies that dominate the market by unearthing needs that everyone else failed to see.

In order to find a business idea that makes money the first thing you have to do is look for a need that’s not being met.

It sounds like something anyone could do. But it takes skill to do it well. This article helps you focus on all the different ways that you can home in on a need that not everyone might see.

Whatever market you’re looking at you can examine it more deeply using these questions. The aim is to uncover needs that currently aren’t being met.

How to find a business idea by focusing on needs

This isn’t just hunting down dissatisfaction. Sometimes it means looking for problems people don’t even know they have and improving things in ways they can’t imagine.

I’ve created a free report for you to download. You can refer back to it whenever you need to dig a little deeper to find the friction in a market – the areas where a solution could smooth out any problems. Some of the aspects I cover include looking for areas to add value, hidden signs of dissatisfaction and extending potential benefits. You’ll also find examples of the companies that dominate the market by unearthing needs that everyone else fails to see.

You need precise questioning and re-questioning if you want to find a business idea that other people have missed. In this report you learn how to probe below the surface. Somewhere a quick scan just can’t take you.

  • Hey Donald,

    That is a seriously brilliant idea,

    Generally, looking into Quora or other question and answer sites helps a lot. Those are the places where people look for answers and post their questions.

    Surely, not all questions are good fit for making a product or a solution – but depending on the niche, one can find something to get started,

    thanks,
    Uttoran Sen,

    • Hey, Uttoran, I love the word brilliant :)

      I like what you say about question and answer sites, you’re really finding out what people are having trouble with. As you say it’s a good clue for where to get started.

      Thank you and have a good week!

  • Hi, Carol

    Pleased to see we’re more or less on the same wavelength. That’s a very good point that you could have another way of adding value in a different way. That does expand the possibilities of what you can offer a market.

    Cheers for now, thank you!

  • Hey Donald,

    I know that as people come online to find what they should be doing that they’re all going to have these types of questions arise but a good bit of them I think don’t do the necessary research before diving into whatever direction they’ve decided to go.

    I do know that fulfilling a need is huge but I also agree with what Carol said that we can help with that need in just a different way. I’ve always given my own experience when sharing my thoughts behind this because I don’t quickly pick up some information. Maybe I’ve read about it five or seven times and I really want to know about this but am not either “getting it” or understanding the way they’ve explained it. When I do finally read one of those posts that I’m finally understanding what it is that I wanted to know, I’ll go back to that person time and time again over anyone else. So it’s just perhaps explaining it in a different way because we all don’t learn the same.

    I’m sure your report is fabulous my friend and will help anyone who is at this particular crossroads. Bravo for putting this together.

    I’m off to share this post and sorry for my late visit. I got really behind after returning from vacation but glad to see I didn’t have a lot of posts to catch up on.

    Enjoy your weekend.

    • Hi, Adrienne

      Like so many things the answer is research research research, just as you’re saying. These are good points that you’ve made, I get it that you can help people in other ways that aren’t what they were imagining.

      You’ve cautht up to date with my posts :) I’ve been kept busy elsewhere, plus I’m customising a new theme (I took the plunge into Thrive which so far is wonderful). You know my neanderthal male brain is rubbish at multi-tasking and it doesn’t want to stop what I’m doing to get back to posting – but needs must!

      Thanks for dropping by, have a good weekend!
