Before Launching a Startup
There are 2 kinds of startups:
The businessman/entrepreneur has money and resources and is looking for ideas for a startup.
We meet such people at every step, they want to invest, want to have a money turnover and growth, they have a team who is ready to do anything, the only missing part is the answers to the most important questions: What? What? How? Why?
The second type is an entrepreneur with lots of ideas of business and it’s implementation but has no money.
Usually, such talent can be the owner and the employee at the same time. This idea arose the need for freelancers around the web. Each freelancer is a small business owner, a group of freelancers is a startup.
We all work for money. Let’s admit, there is no other important benefit of work considering the global statistics that 85% of people are unhappy with their jobs*. Each of us deep in the heart has the biggest goal of combining duty and pleasure. This is the time when we start thinking over startups that will give us more freedom and the opportunity to express ourselves.
So, let’s answer the main question you came for.
In fact, the answer is long, complicated, and has lots of specifications. When crawling the network, we see articles like ‘5 Steps to Set a Startup’, ‘10 Ways to Be Successful in Business’ and so on. Is that all true? Did you find your answers? Probably still looking for more. Forget all that you have ever read.
Look around. Explore the world, your country, region, your neighbors, friends, yourself. Set up the order of questions your business will answer from most important to the least.
What problem will your business solve?
Who are your target customers?
What do you need to start it?
What opportunities you have?
Who is going to implement all the ideas you have set?
What are the risks and threats?
Do you feel ideas filling up your mind? Start answering them step by step and everything will get easier. If you have a team discuss it, if not, then set a team. Do not proclaim yourself as the director, CEO, or founder unless you know the missions, vision, and goal of your startup.
Be honest with yourself and your team, your plan doesn’t have to be perfect but you may turn it into a useful and efficient business.
Listen to your team members, share, measure, and evaluate all the ideas and possible solutions. One head is good, two is better, and the more the best.
No need to rush and no need to wait. Be flexible and agile. Start from what you have and change it, mend and add and edit along the way.
Set up your social media accounts and start telling the world about the upcoming startup. More pictures and visuals and stories to attract future customers.
Ok, now you have the initial hint. Let’s take a break for a while for you to think it over and pass on the step-by-step guide to starting your Online Business.
