Develop a detailed business plan

Having a detailed business plan is the first milestone in starting a business, as this is the crucial document that depicts your business and its aspects.

Now, a lot of people think that the initial business plan has to be 100% precise. But, it is far from the truth as you only need an outline. Do not overstress because your plan isn’t professional as this is the draft version where you will prepare everything and organize the entire idea into the smaller parts. At the same time, this will give you confidence about the future of the project. Once you prepare everything, then you can start by adjusting and correcting the prices.

Set your budget that you will need

The next thing is to define your budget that you will need to buy everything and start things up. The budget is crucial as it helps you to define your future costs and therefore you can predict your future costs, as well as the price of service that you should impose. It includes the price of equipment, licenses, training, wages if you plan to hire people and other things as well. Instead of creating the template from scratch and defining every single item/cost, you can find a lot of budget templates for free. This saves you a lot of time, especially if you are not into the financial subject. Therefore, use the advantages of the internet to save yourself time and effort.

Set your budget

Acquire experience and certificate

Once you prepare everything, the next step is to get some experience and collect experience. No one will hire you if you do not possess the legal license, remember that! So, get an IICRC (Institute Of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) license and label yourself as a Rug Cleaning Technician or Commercial Carpet Maintenance Technician to get your spot on the market! There are also a lot of online courses, so consider these as well. Once you get it, make sure to find yourself a place to get some hands-on experience before you run your business. You can contact some of the local businesses in this niche to help you by giving you an opportunity to work for them for a couple of days. It is the best way to get some real experience.

Starting Your Own Business

Posted by on Apr 28, 2016 in Business | Comments Off on Starting Your Own Business

It may look easy but it’s actually rather difficult. You may have an original idea and you think you could earn more bucks if you started and managed your own business. “I would do it differently, I would do it far better.”
Let’s say you would like to enter a market supplying goods or services you think consumers really need. However, in these troubled times, the question is not what people need but what people want. In other words, what they think, they want and how they see themselves, project themselves and how your goods or services fit into that conception. That’s a thing to consider. What is your competitive advantage?

Let’s say you want to start a flower shop. You need to provide something new to the consumer, something unexpected but also something interesting, stimulating and something that above all encourages a preferable image of personality or provides a unique experience.

For example, you may choose an approach to provide a better service, offering coffee or tea and increasing a pleasurable experience of shopping or you may choose to introduce designer cards to flowers you deliver. Overall, you need to stand out, that is to say – the competitive advantage.

Then comes the hard part. There are numerous, or to be precise, countless elements or aspects of a business you need to fulfil in order for your business to be profitable. In other words, to make money. For one, you need a marketing strategy, and if you’re planning to go all in – a PR consultant. A responsible business image is vital because people don’t just buy the goods and services they want to feel good while doing it. You may aim to be a local family business but nevertheless you need to project an image of family values and aim to provide informal friendly service. Also, you need to pay taxes, bills, or perhaps apply for a loan to help you start your business. So, you will need to acquire accountancy services or legal services. All these are quite hard to do yourself and you would need to hire people to do the work or contact businesses with outsourcing services.

Told you it’s tricky.
Luckily, today, you can ease your way into the market with some much needed help from companies that do just that – help you start your business.
When I started my business I contacted a business consulting company called “BF collaboration” and they helped me with all the tedious matters. For example, when the time came to expand my business internationally, among other services I needed, I contacted them with the request of procuring all the necessary things in order to make a TV commercial. So, I needed film production service like a filming set, actors, a screenwriter etc.
To sum up, when starting your business, there are a lot of things to consider. With the right amount of investing capital and an original idea, you can go places. For all the rest, like accounting, legal matters, marketing or PR services, there are solutions in forms of business that provide such services. Although it will cost you, it is much more efficient to hire someone for a fee when, for example, making a TV commercial, than to do all the work yourself.

You may be a business visionary, but you can’t also be an accountant, a marketing expert, a lawyer, an IT engineer or Superman. Good luck!
