Speaking of creating something different, this guy embodies just about everything I’ve ever said about making something so ridiculous that people can’t not buy it.
IWantToDrawACatForYou.com is just plain stupid. Stupid awesome if you look at what he’s done.
- Created something incredibly unique
- Acted on his idea
- Targeted a niche market
- Stuck with it
See what I did there with that acronym? 😀
But in all seriousness, this is a business that will take off as we can tell from the counter on his site. He’s already sold over 17,000 of these drawings that literally take him about 3 minutes from start to finish. They aren’t good. They aren’t fancy. But they are something we can’t help but share and talk about.
Creating something that people talk about isn’t easy. And it’s even more difficult to act on the idea when most likely everyone he pitched it to thought he was nuts. Who would buy that?!
Well, apparently Mark Cuban sees the vision. He just invested $25,000 for 33% of the company.
What’s your ridiculous idea?
