If you’re thinking of setting up a new business. Why not get ahead of the game.
Most people thinking about starting a business will have a skill, some capabilities in a certain field that they could offer as a service to consumers or to businesses (the marketplace). The priority for most people starting up is to earn a living, they work extremely hard to find their first customer and start delivering the service they offer.
They get paid, hopefully, and then they look for another customer and another, before they know it the pressure of delivering the service takes control.
It’s too late to think about process and there isn’t enough time, and do I really need to do it. (in fact they don’t know what to do, where to start, or how to do it).
Let me give you some advice. You do! Because its all about scale ability and the marketplace, when the people out there start to like what you do they want to buy it, they want to buy it now, when its good they tell their friends and in turn they want to buy it too.
You are not repeatable. You can’t be in two places at the same time, so you need to write down your processes so that someone else knows what to do and the way you want things to happen.
Here you are thinking about starting a business, instead of thinking about it, why don’t you start planning! Building your business before you start it.
Start with the basics.
What can I offer, what will my shop sell, what service can I provide.
Who will buy from me, how often, where – online or face to face?
Products & Services
What products will my target customer buy from the list of things I offer?
What are my design needs, how will I market my stuff, which medium will I use, what will my sales approach be, how will I follow up with my customers, what administration will I have to do, how will I measure my success, what resources will I need?
