How To Start A Business

Interested in starting a successful business?

A successful idea starts with an excellent business idea that is best suited for you. Many businesses fail because the whole thing was a bad idea from the start.

But we also have to appreciate the idea that good ideas are not easy to come by. There is plenty on information online that will help you find the perfect idea for the business you ought to start that is bound to be a success and so I suggest that you get on with it and do some serious research.

However chances are that you are not the kind of person who is good at generating ideas. And what you really need is a source of dozens of brilliant ideas where you can read through and choose the right idea.

Take the following idea as an example.

Low-cost CCTV using a website

Security is a very big issue in Kenya just now and the situation is bound to get only worse in the foreseeable future. There is plenty of evidence to suggest that many Kenyans have taken to electronics and technology to help protect their property and lives. The only big draw back is the cost. And that is why this idea is sure to take off like a rocket headed for the moon.

These days there are very cheap cameras around (using the same technology as those cheap webcams people have on their PCs.). It will not be too difficult to install these tiny cameras that are supposed to be concealed for maximum effect, and then linking them to a website. Your clients will have access to monitoring their locations by signing into the website. By linking to a website the cost of CCTV comes down dramatically because they don’t need wiring and TV screens on site. It also means that your profit margin can be much higher.

To ensure that your clients still have access even when there is a power outage, advice them to purchase laptops (which can easily stay on for an hour after the power has gone) and then also invest in a small car battery and inverter to provide power for longer periods of power outage. This is important because criminals may sabotage the electricity so as to avoid detection. They have done this in many instances.

Selling System

This is the kind of idea that you can break the bank with and you should not charge too little for it. So these selling systems are NOT designed for those who will charge way too little for it.

Hmm very interesting idea. I don't know much about the situation in Kenya, but your idea for the security system in general is a good one. Pair that great idea with some effective seo and you can have a business up and running in no time! Thanks
