Ideas are free
Everyone thinks their ideas are original and will change the world. They honestly believe their little idea that hasn’t even been written down is going to be the next Facebook. I hate to break it to you, but your idea isn’t worth anything, yet. And ideas don’t mean a darn thing until they are built and users are using it.
When you come up with an idea, you shouldn’t ask yourself “how do I protect my idea from getting stolen?”. If this is your first thought, you are already on the wrong path. You should ask yourself these questions:
- Is anyone else already doing this idea?
- If answer is no, why is no one doing this idea?
- If answer is yes, why is this idea not as big as I thought it was?
Not very many ideas are truly original. And not having an original idea is totally fine. We actually think it’s great when others have the same idea and there is competition. That just means the market has been validated.
If you come up with an idea that looks like it’s worth exploring, go ahead and find out how to validate the market (we can help with that) and don’t spend a dime on software development until you actually get some data and feedback from that market.
Building software products is hard enough. Don’t make it harder by building something that no one wants.
