    I'm a bit confused. What exactly is it that you want to teach and write about?

    You say that there's no competition, but competition is not necessarily a bad thing. For one, it shows that there is a market/interest for your product/service. No competition might be a billion-dollar idea, or it might just mean no one is interested in paying money for it.

    I didn't know there were any "new" ideas. Humans have been around for a long time. But, to answer your question, research and test. Then research some more and test some more... There must be something that is close to your idea, where you can find some data. Try your idea out on real people.

    So, if I'm reading you correctly - you have an 'idea' - you don't want to share it with us in case it gets stolen.

    But in your gut you believe this idea is marketable.

    Were I in your shoes, I'd TEST the idea. You could do this in a variety of ways, but this is what I'd do.

    1) Create a facebook ad, targeted at my potential audience The ad invites them to read an article about your idea.

    I'd then see if my target seems interested as I think they would be in my infromation (time 2 hours to set up, 5 days to test Cost.. Maybe $40-$50)

    2) If test 1 had promising results, then I'd keep advertising on facebook, but now I'd promote my product on the landing page, telling them it's coming out soon (provide a date) and if they leave their email with me now they'll get 50% off (or whatever) as the early adopters special discount.

    If people give an email for a discount on the prodcut when it comes out, then you know you have something worth investing all your time in. If not, then you need to work out why this test failed - Is it the product? The pricing? Bad landing page copy? Are you not marketing it to the ideal demogrpahic?

    At least this way you invest minimum effort for maximum information.

    Who is your audience?
    What actual need/problem are you solving?
    Would they pay for it?

    REALLLLLLY hard to give definitive answers when we're shooting in the dark about the idea.

    The answer is probably because it’s hard to do. I had a dream, reliable, electric, high quality cars for $10,000! I couldn’t believe that nobody is doing it.

    Richard Branson had a GREAT idea. I wish it existed today. I heard about it, but then, nothing. It seems to have vanished.

    His idea was air travel that went UP, out of the atmosphere, letting the earth rotate, and then came down to whatever destination you wanted. You could go anywhere in the world in an hour or less using this method.

    Now THAT seems like a great idea that is guaranteed to be a winner. I'd be taking a bunch of trips every year using that method. Get on it!
