  • Business Ideas – Top 3 Business Lessons from Simon Fuller (American Idol Founder)

    Business Ideas – Top 3 Business Lessons from Simon Fuller (American Idol Founder) by Evan Carmichael   Evan Carmichael discusses how you can model the success of American Idol founder and multi-millionaire promoter, Simon Fuller.   “You’ve got to get in there while it’s hot and get out before it’s cold.” – Simon Fuller     Action Item #1: Put Yourself In Your Customer’s Shoes   As entrepreneurs we can easily get lost in our product or service and how great it is. We can’t wait to launch the next version or introduce a new feature. The trouble is, we’re often creating for ourselves and are not focused enough on if our customer will actually want this new product or service.   Simon Fuller is a master at putting himself in his customer’s shoes. When he came across a pop group called “Spice” he recognized that their market was limited – young girls traditionally only buy music from male singers as they are threatened by the women. To fix this problem he changed the name to “Spice Girls” and launched their “girl power” theme which made young girls want to buy their music just as much as the boys.   Fuller took five young women, turned them into superstars and the best selling girl group of all time with over 75 million records sold by putting himself in his customer’s shoes.

No matter how great the artist he is working on promoting today seems to be, he always has another one waiting in the wings to go. When the Spice Girls dumped him as manager, he immediately began to promote S Club 7. After S Club 7 split, he was ready with S Club Juniors. In his own words: “My business is creating fame and celebrity, and I’m one of the best in the world. I know it to the finest detail.” And that is the beauty of his Pop Idol / American Idol franchise — it doesn’t matter how much real talent or staying power the winners have, because audiences will quickly move on to listening to next season’s contestants.   Fuller built a business that complements what he’s best at. The business model works for him instead of the other […]
