If you sell something to your community of clients, and they receive some measure of enjoyment, appreciation, usage, or some other measure of value out of your product or service, then you’re fulfilling the role your company exists to play.
Entrepreneurs exist to create value for the economy: this is the primary benefit they offer.
Without a special group of someones bringing good ideas to market, we would have none of the amenities and treats we take for granted today, like ice cream, clothes, cell phones, cars, energy, even the food on your plate.
Unless you grow your own food and create all your own tools and clothing, you’re participating in the economy in some way, so you too are dependent on the strength of entrepreneurs.
If you have an idea about something, or you have some intuition about what you think would be a valuable product or service — then I truly believe it’s in your best interest — and our best interest, too — for you to follow through with that idea.
Get the help, support, counseling, and financing you need to get your idea to market. If you don’t try, you won’t know, but if you do try, you can either a) fail, or b) succeed. Either way, you’ll know for sure.
In my web design and development business, we work with many budding entrepreneurs and we help them understand what they can sell on the website, beyond information.
For example, you might consider offering members-only content, chat rooms, private messaging, status updates, discussion boards, and many other kinds of ways to get people involved, beyond purchasing merchandise, buying tickets, or joining online.
For more ideas, I invite you to brainstorm with me and drop me a line through my website. If you have an idea, and if we’re a good fit to help you produce that idea, then let’s connect.
