Before Going Into Business!
Listed below are some reasons why your business is important.
Anyway about the business you are in — the very first question that you must ask yourself before anything else. You got to demand yourself to an answer to this.
Why the heck on earth would anybody pay for what you're selling?
1. Why should there be anyone would do business with you? This could be the very first question that you must ask yourself before anything else. You got to demand yourself to an answer to this. Why the heck on earth would anybody pay for this "Junk" you're selling? Yup, "Junk", as I phrased it.
It doesn't matter how good your product is to be, to the eye of others, it's just another piece of product in a sea pool of other similar products. So, still be very proud of your product or service? Truly you're 100% proud of it? You truthfully and deeply believe people would be dumb by NOT buying from you?
Well…you passed the first barrier! You're ready to start go to next stage.
2. The basic business needs 3 things: Lawyer, a Professional CPA, and Creative or crazy fellow, which could very well be you.
Almost every business gets themselves for the first two. It's understandably so. Good creative people are really hard to find, hard to manage, and you'll never sure of what you're paying for. Every established and sizeable business knows the creative side plays a heavier weight than the lawyer and CPA. CPA's and lawyers can help you when you are up there.
But at the early stage when your business is still an infant, your business live or die depending on the business branding activities in areas like business identities, logos, marketing campaign, advertising copy and business slogans. Now, are you NUTS enough? Have people been calling you NUTS?
If so, you are ready for the next stage! Do give yourself a "Cheers"!
3. Singing for Your Own Business? You Got To Promote Yourself In Every Possible Way. Do all of them.
Yes, do whatever possible to get your business name to be up there! Get your Business Brand being noticed by others. There more the merrier! Businesses can just come and go so fast before anybody could hear of them. People are busy, what do they care? They don't care about you and your business.
Why should they care? Get serious. Do everything you can possibly and reasonably afford to do. But beware; you must not mislead others because it'll backfire quickly enough to wipe your business off. Do you "Sing for your own self"?
Then you've passed! Move on to next stage…
4. Big Decision: Could You Win The Competition. It's very likely that you're entering a crowded business market when you first started. Take a hard and closer look at what other fellows are doing; what your competitors are doing right now could affect your business greatly. At this stage, you got to decide: Are you going for "Head to Head" fight?
Competing on better quality? Crazier pricing strategy? Extra Mile Service Level? Better Marketing Campaign? or what else? Or you would avoid all that, and create your own niche, where you are the leader?
If you decided to be offering the same or very much similar product at the same price, but your marketing materials doesn't look half as good as your competitors hey, you're in deep trouble! If you're charging half compare to others, then it's still alright to "Look" cheap, simply because you are the "Cheaper" alternative where people are looking for. Do Love Your Business, just like you love yourself.
