Do you have a great business idea which you want to test?
This is how I test out ideas.
—– 1. Plan well ————-Take some good photos and create some text to sell the idea. ————-Do you need any documents (like a google document or survey) which you have full control over attached to this page? ————-Designing the page well will take time. ————-Define your success criteria. ———————–How many sales/hits/followers should you expect within the first 5, 10, 20, 40, 60 and 90 days. ————-Define your financial budget for this project. (For every project I have undertaken, my financial budget has been less than $100). ————-How much time will you spend on this project each week? ————-Are you ready for your first client? What will you do if someone wants your product or service next week? ————- Is this project seasonal or continual through out the year? ————- Once you have written down some dot points to the above questions, you can contact Neil and we can discuss further.
—– 2. Create a webpage. (This takes 10 minutes if point 1 has been done well)
—– 3. Set up a facebook page and maybe a facebook group
—– 4. Ensure appropriate metadata is set up in the webpage
—– 5. Ensure browsers can find the webpage
—– 6. Test the functionality of the webpage.
—– 7. Work out who your ideal clients are by testing the market.
—– 8. Set up an online survey to understand your clients better.
—– 9. Use Facebook ads to zero in on your ideal clients (Spend about $10)
—– 10. Set up Instagram from Facebook
—– 11. Leverage off other facebook pages/groups and websites
—– 12. Adjust text, metadata, and ideal clients appropriately
—– 13. After three months, evaluate the idea as per defined in point 1.
——14. Determine whether you should pursue it further or adjust the idea. Define costs for the next 90 days.
I have found that there are so many people who have great ideas and talent, but do not have the know-how to market their ideas in an efficient, cost effective manner. Why not just put some text together explaining what you want to promote, with one or two pictures. I will then loaded the information to the web for you, and explain how to market it efficiently using data which is already available for public use, facebook and more.

Simple example how an Olive growing business was developed. Written 29 March 2021: In 2010, we bought a house which had 8 olive trees in the backyard, and I knew nothing about Olives.
In 2011, I decided to created a webpage called Ads19.com/Olives, added information people would be interested in to the webpage and stated I did not know much about Olives. I advertised on Gumtree at $3 per kilo. Many people provided me with advice, and started bringing me jars of our olives as examples of what I could make. We got sold out that year and every year since.
In 2014 I created a facebook page called Olives in Magill and used it conjunction with gumtree, sharing more photos and increasing the price to $4 and $5 per kilo in the following years.
In 2021, the price has increased over the years to $6 per kilo, however I know I could charge $7 per kilo, and we would still get sold out. This year we advertised on facebook market place on 20 March 2021. Since I have a facebook pixel installed on Ads19.com, I know 241 people from facebook, went through to a page on Ads19.com. This is shown by the top graph in the image below with a maximum of 32 people on the 28th of March. According to Google analytics, the bottom graph in the image below, shows that free facebook marketing started on 20 March 2021 and 18 people actually viewed Ads19.com/Olives between 20 to 29 March 2021.
To date, 3,531 people viewed the post from 20 to 29 March, 43 people have sent me an enquiry about the olives, and 17 people have picked from us a total of 117 kilos at $6 per kilo, and I suspect we have another 100 kilos left on the trees. The world map shows where people who looked at the page were located in the world.
Would this sort of information help you with your business idea?
Total cost outlay every year for me, less than $15, Income in excess of $1000. Time spent with each customer on average: 20 minutes. Contacts made – immeasurable/highly beneficial.
