Idea for my business is quite simple: web gallery for wedding photographers. Here’s how it works:
- PhotographerÂ uploads photos after the wedding.
- Friends and relatives view photos. Some of them order reprints generating extra money for photographer.
- Photographer pays me a monthly fee.
How did I come up with this idea? I was looking for an idea for my own software product for a long a time. Then, in one of the books I read an interview withÂ Joel Spolsky where he recommended creating a niche product. As an example he suggested creating a photo manager specifically for wedding photographers instead of photo manager for everybody. And I thought to myself: heck, that’s not a bad idea, I’ll try to execute it.
Surely, there are other products that do the same thing. This doesn’t stop me. If my execution is at least half-good, I should get some clients. I’m aiming at creating a small Italian restaurant on the web, not a global chain of fast food franchises.
