The Purpose of Brainstorming Is To Generate MANY ideas No matter how crazy. Here's 25
Since A Brainstorm Session MUST have MULTIPLE ideas no matter how crazy. This May Spark some additional ideas for anybody reading this.
Note. There is NO real editing here. Since this is just an IDEA generating stage. CRAZY, Out of the Matrix ideas are welcome here.
You can always FILTER OUT/EDIT. At a later stage. NOT during the Idea generation phase.
That said, here's a quick 10 minute idea generation I did:
- Set up a 24/hr $500 Info/Coaching program on Ebay. Costs nothing and you may make a sale. (Use a Paypal Debit Card to withdraw funds immediately
if in the U.S)
- Do a CRAZY OFFER of any kind on EBAY or ANY SITE where you get paid via Paypal. (the bottle neck is just the Debit Card. Get that and you can get cash same day)
- Brainstorm $1000-$5000 a day ideas, then partner with somebody else and take half. THINK BIGGER!
- AIM for ONE STEP transaction. i.e ONE Transaction at $500 since time is limited
- Chattel: Find 5 items on Craiglist/Kijji/Classified that you can "Low ball" and so that your profit is built in. e.g if I have a $5000 float, you can do this with Ipads etc. 5 ipads x $100 = $500 bux
- Walk into a store and help them sell their excess inventory/service
- Rob a bank :-> (not recommended but NO editing)
- Get a $500 loan from a bank/ Credit card and take a cash advance
- Do a Service business for homes that nobody wants do. or is YUCKY. i.e Gutter Cleaning
- Sponsorship: of your roving V.W Camper Tour. Turn it into a walking advertisement
- The "Best Of" website e.g thebestofinserttownhere.com Rank it high for each town, then send out an email to competing businesses tell of their spot/they've been selected. Make it a competition for only ONE kind of each business. Make sure ranking is already there for keyword phrase.
- Maybe a Traveling Unique Garage Sale that comes to town? e.g like a travelling circus
- Hold a seminar on a relevant topic e.g How to write a book fast. Sell course for $99 bux in back of room. Get local library to promote it (A guy did this in Toronto) he sold at least 5 that evening.
and YES one was to me
- Work out a CRAZY SUMMER CLEANUP COMBO DEAL with local contractors. Then go door to door to sell it. Make it fund raiser for local schools and get kids to sell it??
- Gambling? Casino? Poker, blackjack, horse racing? Maybe you have skills here
- Partner with ANY sales person and get them to pay you for hot leads. E.g Mortgage broker. You advertise uniquely e.g via web/with signs and qualify the buyers. Get Realtor to service them
- Find any business. Work out an Offer or One day sale. Telemarket to their existing clientele informing them of the END OF DAY/ONE DAY sale with a reason why. You take a cut
- Do Art work of the city, Or Arial Photography of the city and sell for $20 at a local store. People will buy to see a picture of their house (Think Don Alm mentioned this before)
- Find free stuff and resell on Craigslist etc.
- One day ONLY sale of service e.g $50 lawn care for the entire summer today only. Go door to door you split with lawn-care company. Get local kids/students to do this?
- Sell Cookies, Get kids to sell cookies or pies door to door.
- PRIVATE golf lessons, with your proprietary blah blah blah system. $100/hour only 5 people per city
- Buy up/lowball all the stuff in the small community. Travel to a nearby bigger city in the and resell stuff there
- Service: Clear Gutters or any other job that NOBODY wants to do themselves.
O.K Time. Hmm about 25 ideas. CRAP! I'm rusty lol
The next phase would be to CLARIFY the CRITERIA and EVALUATE these ideas and see which ones are feasible for YOU to implement.
Hope To See Some MORE IDEAS! Anyone of these could be "FLESHED OUT" with details later.
