Business Start Up Hint's & Tips


You’re thinking of starting a business. You have a vague idea of what to do, but you want to learn about all the little things that people tend to forget. It’s these things, along with all the major stuff, that can really put your foot in the door and make your business hold its own. Here we take a look at some of the common lessons all businesses must learn in order to get their foot firmly in the door…

You Can Never Over Plan

When getting all the plans together you may feel as if you’re being a bit fussy on some of the details. Planning for every scenario can look as if you’re being obsessive but in most cases it can save you from a lot of problems arising. For instance, if you’re running a bowling alley and a child badly bumps their head you need to make sure where their guardian is, you need a place for them to sit away from the alleys, you need a first aid kit to hand along with icepacks to ease the swelling and you need an accident book to specifically document the event and to document the customer’s details. If these plans were not in place you could be liable to the tune of a few hundred pounds if sued.

Remember Your Audience

Your audience is the best tool you have in terms of growing your business from the ground up. They are the consumers, and know exactly what they do and don’t like. It is important to build a rapour with them in order for them to give you much needed feedback and suggestions. Social media is a definite winner when it comes to getting the answers you need as you can not only see what people are saying about you but they may also contact you directly with thoughts and ideas of their own. It might even flag up some issues that you didn’t know existed until now.

Do Not Fear Rejection

When businesses start out all they want to do is please the masses and will do everything in their power to keep everyone happy. Thing is, not everyone will jump on the bandwagon. You need to recognise when people are not interested in what you have to offer as pestering them even slightly could lead to confrontation. You can’t please everyone, so don’t try to. Focus your efforts on pleasing those who have shown interest or those who are already onboard. Just because one person said no doesn’t mean to say they all will, plus there are thousands of people you can approach.

Study Your Competitors

One of the things that many companies, both big and small, do is that they keep an eye on the enemy. This isn’t anything sinister by all means, but researching the type of things your rivals do can help you to recognise trends and patterns in the market that they may not have even spotted yet. Price comparison is just one thing that has been on many company’s minds as cheap deals always sell. You may wish to consider a slightly lower sum for certain services or products, or alternatively you can offer them more for their money by giving a little extra.

Know Exactly Who You Are

You brand will be the face of who you are as a business, so it is essential that you know exactly what your ethos is in terms of running the place and how to deal with customers. Some sectors are quite blunt with their approach due to having bountiful amounts of regulations to abide by. Down to earth businesses tend to do well for themselves simply because they feel more human which is completely relatable. You should also consider the name of your company very carefully as you need to make sure it’s not already taken, plus it needs to be able to attract attention.
