My zillion dollar idea...

18 replies
...or is it?

I bet almost everyone in here gets fantastic new ideas every day. I've been mulling one over for a few days and I'm sure it would be super-successful

In a nutshell, it gets over the problem with Twitter that no-one *really* cares what you're doing right now.

Will I develop it? Maybe for fun sometime. Not right now though.

A word of advice for new people. Learn to park those thoughts at the back of your mind. Don't suppress creative thoughts - they create excitement and motivation.

But don't act on every one - see each project through - before you start another.

Simple advice, worth its weight in printer ink.

Cheers,

Neil

    Twitter is a phase and will be over in another two minutes. It has had 13 minutes already!

    True - and one of the reasons for that is the lack of content that anyone cares about.

      Thanks Neil! This mysterious idea of yours sounds interesting.

      Also I agree about "parking" these thoughts. My biggest mistake when I began affiliate marketing and internet marketing was that I started coming up with all these "big ideas" that I just knew would work, only problem was I started trying to do all of them instead of concentrating on one of them, and guess what? None of them worked for crap, and some are still sitting on the backburner! Atleast I can look back at the messes I created and laugh a bit now. I can't stress enough how important that tip is.

    That's good advice, Neil, but I'd take it one step farther. Rather than parking ideas in the back of your mind, write them down. Maybe everyone else has a better memory than I do, but if I don't write it down I'll forgot 90% of my ideas in time. I keep a file on my computer I named Idea File. You can guess what's in it.

    I'm jealous though, I've never had a zillion dollar idea. Just those run of the mill million dollar ones.

    Just when you think you've got it all figured out, someone changes the rules.

    I have one of these a week. I'm going to be filthy rich when I finish them all...

    ...in 2067.

    Good advice mate.

    Thanks Neil.

    You can park all the details of your Twitter idea at the back of my mind.

      I thought I had a brilliant idea when I was drunk. What held me back was the law. I had an idea to create a whorehouse auction like eBay where horny joes could bid on the services of local women. It would be called SexOpolis. But I shot the idea down immediately.

    It's one of those things that could really take off or bomb big time.

    That's the problem with "eureka" ideas - you just never know if the world will see things your way.

    Online innovators are the 21st century equivalent of inventors - and many of them have died poor over the centuries.

    Cheers,

      Has happened to me more times than I care to think about.

      That being said, in many cases, I wasn't the only one with the 'big idea' afterall. Turns out, once an idea is thought - it is out there - whether you discussed it or not. It's nice to know we (random people) are all on the same page...but can also be infuriating!

    Well, one thing about Twitter is that it is for the masses, the digital masses maybe, but the masses all the same.

    That might mean its time is over for business opportunity (perhaps) but might not mean it's over for those people who yes perhaps don't care what someone else is Twittering about, but that doesn't stop them from Twittering the inane things THEY want to Twitter about!

    I don't think it's over. Just will evolve.

    Hi there Jason,

    That's a good statement that you think Twitter will evolve.

    Neil, if your zillion dollar idea will compliment Twitter evolving, then parking it for now may be the best thing, as you watch it's progression and adaptability.

    All the best.

      I might use it as my "fun" project. I like to have one of them on the go that I can turn to for light relief. That way, there's no pressure.

      I'm still thinking about it for now, which is fun in itself.

      When it comes to new projects, hopefully new people here will learn the lesson that many of us here learned the hard way.

      Cheers,

      Neil
