All big businesses started small. It’s how they grow and what they develop into that’s important. No man is an island. Everyone needs help with their business, regardless of the size. Choose your allies well as they can either make or break your success!
What goes into starting a new business?
Starting your own business can be exciting, especially if you are feeling motivated and have a fantastic business idea. However, success rarely comes without hard slog, a good plan and a perhaps a little bit of luck.
Every new business will face a series of challenges; some predictable, some not. It is important to come up with a solid business plan and marketing strategy if you want to have the best chances of survival, and succeed in an increasingly competitive market.
So, what might you need to consider when starting a new business or expanding an already existing one
Develop a Solid Business Plan
Use SMART goals when creating a business plan. These are (S)pecific, (M)easurable, (A)ttainable, (R)elevant and (T)ime-based goals, which will help you stay focused and on track.
All good business plans should take into account start-up costs and include a financial plan for the year ahead. After estimating outgoings and incomings consider what price you will have to put on your time to be able to make a profit. It is best not to set your hourly rates until you have an accurate idea of what your outgoings will be
Consider Your Competition
Look at the companies and brands that are targeting the same client base as you. Which companies are successful and which ones are lagging behind? If you can learn from both the success and failure stories, you may just avoid some common pitfalls that other businesses have fallen into
You could have the best business idea or product in the world, but if you don’t get out there and promote yourself, how is anyone ever going to know about it?
Thinking about who your target market is and how they think will be key in your marketing strategy.
Now, more than ever, you are going to have to get online and get social to connect to and reach the greatest number of potential clients. If you don’t have a decent website or social media plan, then you are missing a trick.
You can start by looking at current market trends and patterns. Is there a niche in the market that has not been tapped into yet? Ask yourself who are your clients and what sort of marketing seems to attract them best.
If you don’t know where to start. Ask for help. There are plenty of free resources out there, and online communities for support and advice. If you have the budget there are also professionals to take you through the process step-by-step, saving you time, effort and money in the long-run
