Everything is on-line these days. There is no exception when starting a business, technology plays a major role.
First you need to have your business vision and a passion. Is there a need in the marketplace for your service or product? Does your idea make energise you? Having a strong passion for what you plan to do can really help. There will be a lot of work for you to do and this will mostly be unpaid until you get your idea off the ground. Launching your business requires networking, and working with others that have come before you. There are many free small business services, help and resources you can tap into from the local chamber of commerce, to government NEIS plans and business coaching.
Forward planning can really save you time. Zoe at Computer Coach Australia has been training people in computers for small businesses for over 3 decades. Initially starting with accounting packages and then moving onto to Windows and then Mac based systems.
Your business name
First off you will need to choose a business name that will work with the URL Uniform Resource Locator – or the www.address.com.au. I love the catchy names that some small businesses use, some work most flop. When choosing a business name do you want to put the description of the product or service in the URL? What does Google recognize and what will help you?
KnowEm allows you to check for the use of your brand, product, personal name or username instantly. Search over 500 popular social networks, over 150 domain names, and the entire Trademark Database to instantly secure your brand on the internet. You can grab your name and secure your brand before someone else does.
You will need to do this research to see if the URL is available for other social media sites? Each social media site allows a certain number of characters for the file name. All these things can be considered upfront.
Social media options
Do you know what social media tools best suit your business ideas? There are many available and each has their own unique demographics. Is Twitter, Instagram, FaceBook, LinkedIn, Google+ or Pintrest going to be used by your client demographic?
One-on-one Computer Training can unravel the mystery of which sites to use including website platform and developing a marketing plan.
There are also many different types of websites. Some you can easily create and learn to use – but will they suit your complete business plan in the future?. With WordPress you can you start a website and easily upgrade to a site like WordPress that provides offering more flexibility as your business grows.
You might have paid for a new website, waited months to receive it if at all, and then left with no idea how to use it. You may have to keep contacting the web designer for the slightest up date. I have heard of people not even receiving their website after spending thousands of dollars. If they do receive it, sooner or later they will need to make changes and are left having to spend more money feeling totally powerless.
Updating and posting to your website is a skill you can learn. Websites can be complex and mysterious. Computer training can help you to learn to learn to use your computer effectively. Learning from a qualified computer trainer has its unique advantages. Technology is not something that anyone can teach (especially not the kids, which is why most people are left feeling hopeless).
Connecting to use social media and understanding the process can save you time and promote your business easily. One of the best ways to promote your business is organically. Just think what types of promotional material that may suit your industry. A website, e-news campaign, or simple forms to improve your business processes?
