Becoming an entrepreneur can be a very challenging task. Starting a business big or small takes effort and influence. There are a few ways aided by the immense growth of technology, to spread the word and target a large audience.
First, think of space
Do you need physical space, such as a warehouse? For example, amazon.com used to be a bookstore and used to own a small space to store bestsellers but now they do not have any physical space, hence cutting out rent. They’ve just decided to be a platform where sellers and buyers interact directly so that they can save up on rent. In other words, they only occupy digital space.
On that note, are you just a seller?
If you just need to sell a certain product that is already in the market, such as socks and things people are familiar with. Basically, things that don’t have a significant difference from what we use now, sites such as eBay and Amazon may be your way to go. Meaning, you will need physical space, consider your location according to your budget.
If you’re bringing something new to the table
In this case, you need to take advantage of where things are in the world right now. By that, we mean get ahold of the internet, make it your tool of attraction. Start a website, not something amateur but something with a message or something that is professional and neat. You could check out websites such as Havealook. Score with an on fleek presentation. Thinking from a consumer’s point of view, what would make you more likely to pay attention to or consider a product or any service, a broken amateur website with MS OFFICE fonts or something elegant with no mistakes and glitches? Earn your customer’s trust and attention, and do it well.
There’s always a negative side to the growth of technology and needs
Is the service or product that you’re promoting, a want or a need? Does it suit the current day and age? For example, it wouldn’t be sensible to sell a buttoned phone in 2019! It also isn’t sensible to sell unwanted apps such as dictionaries and things like that, it would fail before it even begins. Give it some thought before you embark on your journey. If you were a consumer, is it something you’d be tempted to purchase?
If you are going to manage a large website with social media accounts; or if you need to maintain a physical space (with or without the website) you might need employees as you go on. Always conduct an interview and make sure they are able to sign a contract for at least a year. Make sure they fit all the required criteria. Try to never just go with someone because you think it’s better than not having an employee. Always find the right person for the job.
Then go on, keep that step, embark on your journey with confidence!
