Something has literally popped out the blue right now (which kind of sucks), so this post won’t be as descriptive as it should have been, so I’m going to break each section down into small bullet-pointed, and hopefully it’ll be good enough to give you the information you need just to get going (I’m very sorry).
So, before you start a business you need a plan, and this plan should start off with the following once you know what you’re trying to sell or provide:
- Why is your product or service unique?
- What is important to your customers?
- Why they should buy from you now?
Then you’ll need to profile your customer, asking the following questions:
- Who and where are they?
- What makes them unique?
- How can they be identified?
- What are they interested in?
- What are their pain points?
You also need to establish a brand, which I’ve talked about many times before. Your brand should inspire people to reach out to you over your competitors as you’re giving an expected quality that is better than the others. Making a professional brand over time requires:
- Uploading meaningful content
- Consistency across all platforms when communicating with customers
- Timeless content
- Quality design and presentation
Once you’ve got these down, you’ll be able to establish your marketing strategy, determining the best path for success to get the best Return on Investment (ROI).
Of course, there are so many other things I haven’t touched on like; what incentives you can use to get people to buy, and creating content which gets people to engage with you and etc. But unfortunately, I have to jet off now so I’m sorry it’s not informative as it would have been.
I hope these few bullet points will get the dice rolling for you, and look out for my next post very soon!
