What is a Business Idea Generator?

A business idea generator is an online tool that allows you to quickly brainstorm new business ideas, based around a topic or industry you instruct it to work with. My free tool uses AI (artificial intelligence) behind-the-scenes to suggest realistic business ideas & concepts that stand a real chance at profitability in your space.

Here’s an example of new business ideas I generated for the “real estate” industry in 1 click:

Here are the top 5 real estate business ideas from the output in this go-round of my free tool:

  • Subscription-based service for personalized neighborhood research reports
  • Online platform connecting property owners with sustainable architects
  • Mobile app for hassle-free roommate matching based on lifestyle preferences
  • AI-powered tool for predicting property value fluctuations in emerging markets

As you can see, in a matter of seconds, you’ll get 10+ potentially profitable business ideas in a matter of seconds, based on any industry, topic, or idea you feed into the AI tool above. If you don’t find your perfect idea on the first try, click the “Generate Ideas” button again and you’ll get 10 more fresh business concepts.

Why Use My Business Idea Generator to Come up with New Startup Ideas?

I built this tool to scratch my own itch—taking some of the legwork out of brainstorming smart angles for new potential business models in the niche industries I care about. After spending a lot of time perfecting the way this tool works, it’s now ready for new entrepreneurs and business owners of all stripes.

If I had to break down the biggest selling points of my business idea generator, over all the rest, my secret sauce would lie in these key factors:

  • Speed and Ease of Use: In just seconds, you can generate a nearly unlimited number of potentially innovative and actionable business ideas for free that align with (1) your niche industry of choice and (2) current market trends.
  • Creativity and Pattern Interruption: This free tool will help you break out of your usual thought patterns and discover new startup ideas designed to leverage your skill set, that you may never have considered, yourself.
  • Quality and Profitability: I’ve operated half a dozen profitable businesses over the last decade, and this tool functions based on how I identify potentially profitable new ideas to pursue. Plus, we’ve trained this AI tool to research and factor in current market trends to brainstorm highly relevant business concepts for you to consider.

Not to mention, this tool (and my 30+ other free blogging tools) will be forever free, which means no pricing plan, ever. I’ll never ask you to sign up with a credit card or your email address as a hurdle in order to get what I believe you deserve—free business ideas that align with your skill set, experience, and interests.

How My AI-Powered Small Business Idea Generator Tool Works

Ready to take this startup idea generator tool for a spin? Let’s get to it.

1. Enter the Niche (Topic) for Your New Business Ideas

Start by typing in the general industry, or specific niche that you’re interested in starting a business around. Examples here could include topics like fitness, real estate, financial planning, sports marketing, and any other topic area you’d like to work in.

Don’t be afraid to get specific with this tool. If you have a very clear, well-defined niche (or even a sense of the business idea you’re already thinking of), go ahead and type it into the tool—it’ll work with as much context you can give it.

2. Click “Generate” to Instantly Get 10+ Research-Backed Startup Ideas

In just 1 click, my free tool uses sophisticated AI (artificial intelligence) prompting behind-the-scenes, to quickly spin up a list of clever business ideas for you to review, taking into account current market trends.

Example of AI Business Idea Generator Outputs (Screen Shot)

You’ll get at least 10 new business ideas instantly. If you want more, just click the “Generate Ideas” button again and you’ll get a fresh new crop. A nice crop. Niiiiice croooooppppp.

3. Choose Your New Business Idea (or Refine and Re-Run the Tool)

From the example business ideas above in the “fitness” niche, I really like the concept of hosting popup fitness events in unconventional locations.

Think of how cool it’d be to have a rotating weekly series of bootcamp-style workouts that feel exclusive—you need to subscribe for text notifications in order to get a heads up about where class is going to be each week. You could rent space in abandoned warehouses, old cathedrals, creative lofts, rooftops, at the beach or in the mountains. The possibilities here are limitless, and the cool factor is massive, if you ask me.

Examples of Real New Business Ideas (from this Tool) to Spark Your Inspiration

Here are some examples of a few more business ideas I generated using this tool in just a few seconds:

  • Quarterly Creator Photo Shoot: A subscription-based service that offers personalized quarterly photo shoots for creators and small business owners in your area, where you’ll spend one day with them every few months—shooting stills and video footage of them while they work, interact with customers, host a podcast guest, and anything in-between.
  • Eco-Friendly Packaging Solutions: As businesses worldwide move towards sustainable operations, there’s a growing demand for biodegradable and recyclable packaging options. This idea focuses on producing more socially conscious packaging solutions that are both eco-friendly and cost-effective.
  • Virtual Reality Home Design: Tap into the real estate and home decor markets with a VR service that lets customers design and visualize their home renovations and decor changes before they actually commit.

These ideas just scratch the surface of what’s possible when you get a little inspiration from a tool like this. Come back anytime you’re looking for more ideas on how to get started with a business of your own.

FAQs About Using this Business Idea Generator Tool (Frequently Asked Questions)

I’ve been teaching about building online businesses for more than a decade, and I get a lot of questions about finding the right idea—whether from from new entrepreneurs, existing business owners, SaaS founders, or freelancers that are looking to make a shift in their work. Here are some of those most frequently asked questions.

What are the best use cases for using a business idea generator like this?

Keep in mind, this tool will give you a nearly unlimited flow of new business ideas… but it won’t do the work of bringing that business to life, for you. This tool is best used when you have a specific skill set (and/or experience) in an industry, and you’re ready to begin finding ways to put those to work for yourself.

The types of business ideas you can expect this tool to create include:

  • Startup Ideas: You’ll get some software and SaaS (software-as-a-service) business ideas that function as recurring subscription-style business models.
  • eCommerce Business Ideas: We’ve also trained this tool to brainstorm relevant physical products and digital products based on the niche you’re exploring above.
  • SEO-Driven Online Business Ideas: Many of the ideas you’ll see here also have potential to be online businesses where you’ll focus at first on building an audience for your brand, and then work with those readers, listeners, viewers, to monetize in win-win ways together.
  • Small Business Ideas of All Types: Ranging from smart ways to shake things up in the real estate industry, to financial services, healthcare, technology, social media, construction, manufacturing physical products, and beyond, you’ll be working with templates for proven, profitable business ideas that can be applicable to your area of interest.

Why is this business idea generator free to use?

I wanted this business idea tool to be completely free, offering up quick suggestions without any need for paying, creating an account, or jumping through silly hoops. You can use it as many times as you want. No limit. No charge.

Back when I began building my first online business, I couldn’t afford expensive tools that would’ve helped me grow my traffic and income faster. I had to hunt for free tools (and I was really grateful to the people who created them). Often, I split the cost of paid tools with my friends.

More than a decade into this now, I’m making great money from my blog and other businesses. I can afford all the tools I want… but I haven’t forgotten what it was like to be at the starting stage. I pride myself on giving back. That’s why I created the this tool (and my other 30+ free blogging tools). This tool is free because I care.

With these tools to help, along with your commitment to your blog or whichever business you start, I’m confident that you’ll see success too. And once you’re killing it, I’d love for you to try RightBlogger. This is my suite of AI-powered tools for creators, bloggers, and small business owners.

How accurate are the business ideas created by this AI-powered tool?

The unique business ideas that are whipped up by my business idea generator are based on current market trends, the topic/industry inputs you provide, and artificial intelligence-powered insights.

While these new business ideas are intended to inspire and guide new entrepreneurs, always keep in mind that the success and practicality of any business model will depend on doing proper market research, planning, and your ability to problem-solve through the inevitable challenges that’ll come your way after starting your business.

Can this startup idea generator help me if I have no ideas right now?

Ooooooh yeah! I built this business idea tool to be especially useful for people who aren’t quite sure about where to begin today. I get it, because I’ve been here myself before.

Once you type in your industry or the topic you’re interested in building a startup around, you’ll get a wide range of clever startup ideas, which can spark inspiration or lead to a more defined business plan if you find an idea that motivates you.

What should I do after finding the perfect business idea to start working on?

After landing on the right business idea, here’s a quick checklist of the next steps I recommend taking:

  • Do market research to understand your target audience and work to validate your business idea.
  • Analyze your competition to understand your unique selling proposition and how you can stand out.
  • Create a detailed business plan that outlines your strategy, funding needs, and projected growth.
  • Consider seeking advice from mentors, professionals, and other successful business owners in your industry.

As an added bonus, I’m working on a business name generator that’ll help you come up with the right, clever name for the project you’re working on.
