The Educators How To Start Your Own Business

How To Start Your Own Business

With unemployment at record highs, one way for you  to get a job is to start your own business.

Instead of waiting for someone else to hire you, why not set up a company and employ yourself? Some are natural-born entrepreneurs with a fantastic idea they turn into a successful new venture. Many want to earn more money or be their own boss. Some seek greater flexibility or a more favourable work-life balance. Many simply have no alternative, perhaps after losing their job.

Starting up a business can provide you with a more rewarding life, but there are no guarantees. The start-up survival rate remains low.

However, the good news is many new businesses do survive and if you take care of key start-up tasks properly and in the right sequence, you can get your new venture off to a great start.

The Sage guide to starting your own business covers all the topics you need to start your business, including:

  • Deciding when to launch your new business
  • Boosting your start-up knowledge
  • Deciding who you’ll sell to — and how
  • How to analyse your competitors
  • Creating a brand
  • Writing your business plan
  • Registering your business
  • Managing your business finances

Start your own business

Start with an idea

If you’re thinking of starting up a business, you’ll first need to come up with a realistic idea that you can turn into a product or service. Find local support, including help with developing business ideas, on theNational Enterprise Network website.

Register your idea

You might have already come up with an idea for a business you think there’s a market for, or invented something you think people will want to buy. Find out how to register your idea to make sure nobody copies it without your permission.

Turn your idea into a business

  1. Research your market – identify potential customers. Talk to them and find out if your idea is meeting a real need.
  2. Develop and plan – test your product or service with real customers, make changes, and test it again. Keep doing this until you’re sure there’s a demand for it.
  3. Find partners and suppliers – think about who you’re going to work with to develop and sell your idea.
  4. Set up your business – work out which legal structure is right for you, and whether you want to sell shares.
  5. Get funding – explore different sources of business finance, from bank loans to government-backed schemes.

Few Key Factors:

1- Timing 

The way the start-up entrepreneurs tell it, it is tricky to start a business at any time – not just during a recession – but their particular business idea is so niche, so focussed, and so special that they shrug off the gloom and just get on with it.

The upside of starting a business during a downturn is that things can only get better as the economic climate improves, and you will have learnt an awful lot in the difficult times that you can use in the easier ones.

2- Idea

Lots of people go about finding their niche by using business school tools such as market analysis or sector research. Clever, but remote. Why not start a business based on a need you yourself have, that is not properly addressed by existing suppliers? Keep it simple, and answer an in-your-face need. If you have got the need, and the idea, then come the operational problems.

3- Tools

Most homes and most students are already equipped with quite a lot of the tools any business needs to reach a worldwide audience from day one.A laptop and a mobile phone is all the infrastructure a new business needs to get up and running.

  • Laptops can edit sound or movies, design software, and keep track of all the details of a start-up business at minimal cost.
  • Internet connectivity allows a start-up entrepreneur to collaborate with video conferencing at almost no cost, an extraordinary breakthrough.
  • The internet also enables a new business to reach a specific, even worldwide marketplace with a minimal outlay.

4- Cash

Now, what about funding?

Starting any kind of business always used to need money: from savings, relatives, angel investors, a bank loan. The latter is reputedly horribly difficult at the moment. For several reasons, including the technology mentioned above, not having pots of cash is now much less of a problem than it used to be. Several of the start-up entrepreneurs I have met needed only credit-card loans to get their businesses up and running – a potentially costly route, mind.

Just get on with it!

Follow your instinct!

The Educators developing a practical and professional Internet Marketing course.

The Educators is pleased to announce its collaboration with DigitPro and Cavendish International, in developing this practical and professional Internet Marketing course offering the learners the skills needed to master marketing via internet.

In 2010 Forrester Research published that for the first time ever, the average reported time spent by US consumers online was equal to the time they spent watching TV. The interesting fact is that, this change hasn’t come as a result of a drastic decrease in the time consumers are spending with their TVs. The change is due to the explosive growth in the time consumers are spending online. This trend has been continued in 2011 and 2012 and the consumers are spending more time on Internet than any other media. According to a report by Forrester Research, companies will spend $77 Billion by 2016 on interactive marketing with a large chunk of it in Social Media and Search Engine Marketing. This expansion in expenditure is expected to create a tremendous demand for people with Internet marketing skills.

This course with its hands on approach is designed to not only give the learners an in-depth understanding of internet marketing but also it will equips them the skills necessary to deliver the job. The course will address the use Internet media to deliver all the marketing functions (promotion, advertising, interactive communications, market research, developing customer relationships).

The course will be available for online delivery in January 2013.
