We talk a lot about startups, how to succeed, and what to do to build a large and loyal following on pretty much any social networking service, but we seldom touch the subject of the actual business idea itself. Coming up with a great idea, realizing it and making sure to never stop until it’s successful is one of the hardest tasks you can undertake as an entrepreneur. To help you solidify that success, I decided to try and find a way to help you ensure that your startup idea is good from the start.
There are of course a myriad of things you can do in order to procure your idea’s success, but without proper preparations, there are always going to be speed bumps which will slow you down or break your startup idea completely apart. You have probably heard an overwhelming number of entrepreneurs tell you that their idea grew out of a need to optimize or create a tool or service that they themselves wanted but it wasn’t available, right?
That’s exactly what a great startup idea is built upon. If your idea is to only make money, then your chances for success are quite slim. No company makes good revenue the first three years in existence. It’s a buildup time which should be used to make sure you’re not going out of business, and it’s a 24/7 endeavor.
With the help of a fresh infographic called 10 Rules For A Great Startup Idea presented by Founder Institute (design my Andrea Chen), we get to take part in what a bunch of successful entrepreneurs and company founders think should be the foundation of a successful startup idea. If you have a look at this list, you will instantly have a chance to validate your idea, refine it, and even make sure to success-proof it for the future.
A great startup idea might hit you in an instance or take you forever to develop, that’s not the issue here. The issue is that once you have your idea, you need to make sure that you solidify its birth, growth and maintain it with the tips presented in this infographic. I can almost guarantee you that if you have a look at these tips, you will be able to find a way to deploy your idea to the world and nourish it through its beginning years, and make it into a huge success. Planning, creativity and dedication are the three cornerstones to a successful idea. What you include in those categories is entirely up to you of course.
