Summary

Millions of people have chronic, untreated foot pain. Listen to Zee share a business idea that helps them.

Show Notes

In this episode Zee presents us with his visions of an online custom orthotics provider and a niche on which to focus the marketing.

A kit is sent to your home that allows you to create a custom foot mold. Ship it back and orthotics arrive in just days. Compared with the lengthy back and forth to doctors offices that is currently the norm, it's a huge time and energy saver. Zee presents his idea and demonstrates the way he thinks about starting new businesses from a logistical standpoint.

The takeaway: A great business project grows out of your will to make it successful, and it's a huge plus if that will grows out of a meaningful connection to solving the problem the business addresses. So, if you've got foot pain yourself, or better yet, you have a "foot fetish," this is the project for you.

There's a bit of competition brewing in this niche but Zee has a plan to deal with that. Namely, niche further (the current solutions target an elderly market, so focus on a younger demographic) and serve an audience that needs to emotionally reconcile with the problem so as to address it early. Strategy: make orthotics cooler. Help people developing flat feet to face it, own it, be okay with it, and therefore be willing to take care of it.

Nuggets:

  • Find out how Zee lets the fear-based marketing of competitors drive traffic to his more caring and understanding style of customer engagement.
  • Learn that often reaching out to someone with a blue check on Twitter (verified account of public interest) actually gets you somewhere.
  • Discover Zee's unique approach to tracking customer satisfaction.

Action Steps:

  1. Visit a foot doctor to better understand the process.
  2. Research competitor products (online and traditional).
  3. Research the margins, costs, financial details.
  4. Understand the market enough to select a great niche within it.
  5. Implement a simple, fun (we give some ideas) marketing strategy to get people engaged and interested.
  6. Reach out to a podiatrist and develop a relationship.
  7. Reach out to an influencer and develop a relationship.
