How To Find Ideas For Creating Your Own Profitable Products

In this Article we look at the third competitive advantage of successful Internet Marketers - Creating Products.

The main problem with creating products is not in the build process, but rather in the "Ideas Process."

Product Ideas Come From NEEDS

* New Knowledge

Research at centres of learning gives rise to new theories that provide a wealth of ideas, for new products.

* Emulation

Modification and copying of existing products and services is the most common source of new ideas for products.

* Ego

Most inventors of products have big ego's that are only satisfied by the "creative process," from invention to production.

* Difficulty

Hardship in terms of effort required to do any work or activity is a rich source of new ideas for products.

* Scarcity

Shortages of necessities and luxuries very often give rise to new ways and products to overcome the shortages.

Product Development

Products can be developed in one of two ways :

* Product Centric Approach

This is where the idea and the product are the drivers of the process.

Prototypes and initial production runs are completed before research to find out whether or not the product has a chance of commercial success.

* Market Centric Approach

In this approach the Market is the driver.

It focuses on identifying clear market needs and then finding very specific products to satisfy those needs.

With this approach you know your product will succeed before you commit money to the production process.

The Research

The two main purposes of research are :

* Technical Viability

In this step you analyse the process and cost of manufacture.

The aim is to find an answer to the question - Can the product be made in commercial quantities for reasonable cost ?

* Commercial Viability

This step determines the likelihood of commercial success when the product hits the shelves. You determine how much competitor products sell for and the expected return on investment.

A Practical Exercise In Creating Your Own Product

Step #1 - Developing NEEDS

Decide on which NEEDS you want to create a product for. For this exercise we will use Difficulty.

Step #2a - Idea Development Using a Market Centric Approach :

Using a directory of Internet Newsgroups join a few groups and lurk. Understand the group's purpose and etiquette, and when you feel comfortable post a simple question. For instance :

=>

Hi Forum

I am doing some research and would like to know what is the single biggest difficulty you have with x ?

Name

Hi Forum

I have an idea to resolve difficulty x. Would this be of interest to you ? If so what specific features you like to see in the solution to x ?
