So, You Want To Be In Business?

Good for you.  It's a big step and there's not too many people willing to take the chance and really put themselves to the test. Entrepreneur is defined by Dictionary.com as " A person who organizes and manages any enterprise, especially a business, usually with considerable initiative and risk".    A lot of people don't have the initiative or the tolerance for risk, but you do.  You are intrigued by the challenge.  So, where do you start?  Do you just dive in with the "If you build it, they will come" mantra and hope for the best?  If this feels wrong to you, you have good instincts.   There are a number of things that will determine the success or failure of your future business and knowing them from the start will give you the tools you need to proceed with confidence.

What's in a name?   If something in your gut is telling you that you need to get this right.  Follow your gut.  The name you  choose will make a great impact on your business.

Name Your Business

Would you wander into the woods with no experience, map, compass or gear?   Maybe for a quick walk, but if you plan to stay out there, you'd better have a plan and the right gear.

Make A Plan

A good business is a result of good systems. The quality of the product or service is important, but without good systems in place you can't deliver effectively to your 

customers.

Prepare Your Systems

You need a website and a professional email address, end of story.  Without these tools in place your customers will inevitably end up with your competitors.  And... it's not that hard.

Website & Email

Name Your Business

A good business name is memorable, reflective of the service or product that the business offers and rolls easily off the tongue so that your customers want to repeat it again and again. Sound simple?  It is, when you get it right, yet so many businesses simply do not because they go about it the wrong way. Let us help you to make this process fun and make sure you get it right. After that, ensuring that the name you have chosen is available and registering your name is a matter of jumping through a few hoops and you're in business.  Literally.

Prepare Your Systems

So many businesses start out with a dream fuelled by a passionate individual who loves that thing they know how to do and they want to share it with the world or their community.  It's a good start, but between that and the long term goals of the business lies a myriad of decisions and tasks.  The way those decisions are made and the tasks accomplished will determine the success or failure of the business.  The good news is that this has been done successfully by millions before you AND they've documented just how to do it.  Why not benefit from their experience and follow proven methods that lead to success?  We can help you do just that.

Make A Plan

Do the words "Business Plan" make you cringe?  Does the concept overwhelm or bore you?  Do you envision yourself pouring over numbers, spending hours and hours creating a document with no idea if you will ever actually use it when you are finally finished?  Well, the good news is that there are numerous types of business plans with endless ways to go about creating one.  Your plan needs to fit your personality and it shouldn't be painful. Once you have a plan in place, executing that plan is something that can be done strategically, with confidence and excellent results. 

Website & Email

Having a website and a private email address is not the end of your marketing plan, but it is an essential component.  With all of the convenient and accessible tools available to today's small business owners, there's no excuse to go without. Hire a web design company or use a web design platform, it's your choice.  With the right message and some simple "calls to action" your website can engage leads, turning strangers into friends and friends into customers. We can help you decide if you'd like to use a designer and if so, who to choose.  We can also help you to choose a web design platform to build your website yourself, or we can build a Wix website like this one for you.
