Stacking trends is a really powerful technique, if you want to create good ideas for a new business. All you have to do is start brainstorming all the trends there are at the moment. Here is a list of some of the trends in 2015. Many of these trends alone has made million and billion dollar businesses.
Apps, Email marketing, Online Education, Memes, wearables, viral videoes, selfies, travel, virtual reality, delivery services, social network, self-development, crossfit, news, books, reality TV, fitness and health, celebrity, comedy, luxury, video games.
Then you start stacking the trends based on some kind of idea. A example could be an app with fitness and health memes or a comedy book delivery service. Don’t try to stack to many trends. I like to keep it at 3 trends combined for an idea.
1. Create a big list of trends
2. Start stacking the trends
3. Execute on the new idea.
I’m just recently learned this technique but it has already helped me a lot. I came up with a new good idea the other day for one of my web projects. The idea is a social network for handball players on my website haandboldnationen.dk. Handball is a very popular sport in Denmark and there is no good social network for handball players in Denmark at all. This is just an example of how it helped. You can use this to create way more powerful stuff, but it also helps with smaller ideas/new features.
Try use this technique next time you try to come up with a new idea. It can maybe be the next million or billion dollar industry if you come up with something good. Feel free to contact me if you need help with your new idea. I can make you a website or help you with social media. If you want to start a business in the danish market contact me as well.
