Only 1 in 2 companies cross the 5-year mark, which shows the importance of a successful launch! Here are some important tips for building a solid foundation for your business.
It often happens that the entrepreneur focuses on one or two points and devotes all his energy to them. But to be an entrepreneur to succeed must have a global vision and therefore endeavor to leave no gray area. It is therefore essential through the advice given below to draw up a list of actions to be taken which will allow you with a calendar to become successful in all areas.
Build your motivation
Starting a business can be like an obstacle course. Strong motivation and big confidence in you and your concept will grant you the necessary springs to overcome all the negative things that are sure to arise, often where you do not expect them. A motivation to all tests is necessary!
Clearly define the added value of your project
Whatever your project, failing to offer a radically new concept, it must bring an advantage that stands out from the existing offer. Clearly identify this added value and highlight it. It is the keystone of your entrepreneurial building.
Do a real market study
The best entrepreneur is only worth what he/she offers! Evaluate the relevance of the things and their adaptation to the local market.
Assess your funding need
Know how to assess foreseeable start-up expenses. Do not expect to live in your business for some time. Excluding micro-enterprises, 35% of creators start with more than 16,000$, 20% with less than 2,000$. Think about it!
Know how to attract a banker and maintain a real partnership. Also, target Business Angels capable of understanding your field of activity.
Find existing help
The business creator can benefit from aid to launch his business and reductions in social security contributions. Inquire!
Go step by step to develop your business in the most pragmatic way possible. Establish a development plan!
Do not start this route alone. There are so many organizations that provide you with monitoring and sometimes decisive tutoring. Joining them can also be a good idea!
Make yourself known
Finding partners, funding and attracting attention to your concept implies being known. Use all available springs. Social networks, contests of young creators, press. Everything is good for promoting your brand!
Skilfully combine technical, commercial and marketing
Refine your product or concept technically without ever losing sight of its marketing and marketing component.
Identify the right people
Choose employees with varied and complementary skills.
Know how to delegate and trust
As an entrepreneur, you need time. Know how to delegate to focus on the essentials!
Entrepreneurship is never a long, calm river. Be prepared to make risky but potentially winning choices.
Keep your commitments
Be professional. Never fail your partners, your customers, or your collaborators.
Take care of your accounting
You don’t run a business blindly. Your accounts must be precise and provide you with reliable navigation indicators.
You have talent but you will never be omniscient. Listen to your customers, partners, and employees. They can guide you on how to develop.
Measure your expenses
Find the right balance between development, equipment, and marketing expenses.
Only hire at the right time
Hiring must bring value! Recruit well and at the right time.
Do not be discouraged
Of course, if the adventure does not take off, you must sometimes know how to give up. But as long as the situation is not hopeless, hang on and give yourself time to convince and grow your turnover!
