Have you ever gone window shopping and thought “I would have thought of this” or “This product is so simple, anyone can do it!” We all get that feeling , we all have probably even had a few ridiculous ideas from time to time. Sometimes you simply never know how popular a simple and “silly” product could be! But few act upon their ideas, simply because they seem too silly or ridiculous. However, some of the most popular inventions nowadays came from the success of a very silly idea that turned into a cash cow.
This product is so simple, anyone can do it!
Here are a few so-called “ridiculous” ideas:
1. Pet Rock: The idea of selling a rock might seem ridiculous, let alone making millions out of it. Gary Dahl figured out how to sell his idea and make $$$. He sold a rock for $3.95 on a bed of hay with complete packaging that includes manual and a cardboard box that can be used as a pet carrier. The rocks became extremely popular and one of the “greatest inventions” of it’s time.
2. Million Dollar Homepage: Creating a page with a million pixel images and selling each pixel for one dollar would sound like an easy way to make a million bucks in a fantasyland. Sounds stupid right? Let me introduce you to Alex Tew. He was 21 years old when he first thought of it. People started to think that this was a joke until all pixels were sold and made a brand out of it.
