These are first steps when you analyze your business idea with measurement of business potential energy. But, with these metrics you can decide only for one level of uniqueness of your business idea. It is to answer to the question which business has the biggest potential for you.
What are the three levels of a unique business idea?
There are three levels of uniqueness of each business idea when you need to develop a unique business idea.

The unique business idea is something that will increase the business potential energy of your business.
The three levels of uniqueness of the unique business idea are following things:
- Which business to start?
- What will be the subject of business, or what you will sell?
- How you will sell the products?
The first level of uniqueness is which business you will start. Think about other businesses in a particular market niche that can be your competitors. Ask yourself what difference will offer your business.
Second level of uniqueness is what you will sell. How your products or services are different from the products and services of your competitors? Think about possible answers of this question and note all the differences. Additionally, think about how much is important that difference for your customers.
Third level of uniqueness of your business idea will be the ways you will sell. How you will sell? What you will offer to your customers? Think about answers on these questions. Many times entrepreneurs forget about this level of uniqueness of the businesses, even this is so important for the whole business. For example, you want to sell in your retail store and also to give possibilities for shipment to home. Furthermore, you can include internet selling or to accept phone orders. Each of these ways of doing sales can make your business unique.
