What service have you always wanted someone to provide, or product you always wanted someone to build, that would solve an immediate business need, that you would happily pay $10,000 for today? The purpose of this question is to force you think about where can real value be created in your business/industry/work on a daily basis that could justify a $10K spend today.

    I would pay/spend $10,000 if someone else would do my job and I could golf three times a week and still make a decent income.

    The ability to know my audience size on each channel. A tool that understands my business and can predict how much visitors and conversions I can get from creating the same content as my competitor.

    Let's use an example, if I were a content site, this tool could predict that if I write this content, I would rank in this position on Google, I would get these amount of visitors per month, and I will make $X in ad sense revenue. And if I build 2 BLs with Ahrefs DR of 53 then I would rank higher, et al.

    I sort of have a manual and semi-automated process of doing this. I built a tool that tells me which content to write on and can predict where I would rank, but the prediction is very fuzzy.

    We might eventually just build this in-house. But if you get to it before we do, then pen me down as your first customer.

      Out of curiosity, how is this different than BuzzSumo? Or is it that basic version and other stuff built on top of that?

        Never used BuzzSumo extensively, but from my experience using it the best it gives you is how the content performs on social channels only after you have posted it to social channels. It's also good for keyword research, but their keyword research tool does not scale for me. Ahrefs does everything I need from them.

        What no one does is to automate my keyword research and tells me the most profitable piece of content to write on or do some seo optimizations on at scale.

        Consider that I could be producing 500 - 2000 pieces of unique content per month.

    I know this is cliche, but I'd to feel confident that whatever service I was spending money on that I would get a net-positive return on my initial investment.

    I am a very lean marketer; I only spend money on services and products I know will improve my business and increase my revenues. My comment before about having someone else do my job, although was meant to be humorous, is something that I will need eventually. I am working hard at growing my business and I will eventually need to hire people to fit specific roles; however, if I only need a specialist in one area, I would rather spend $10,000 for part-time help than committing $40,000+ for someone who I don't really need.

    I would pay 10k for reliable, high quality data on physician access time and location for pharma sales reps. Where are they today? And do they have an open slot to meet with a rep. Gold.
