Find out what you like
Working in a field that you don’t like, it must be filled with complaining. Grumpy, don’t feel at home. Likewise establishing a business.
Therefore, before starting a business, find out what you like. For example, you like to cook, then open a restaurant, cafe, restaurant, or other culinary business, such as opening catering, taking cake orders, and so on.
If you build a business according to your interests, the results will be positive. Because you run it with love and with all your heart.
Find a target market
After knowing what business is suitable for you, also find out who will be your target market. Whether your business is aimed at children, teenagers, adults, or the elderly.
Lower, middle, or upper class. Also gender and education. That way, you will be able to make or sell goods or services according to your target market. So right on target.
Look for relevant information
The next step is to find information related to the business you are building. For example, you want to open a fashion business.
You need to find information on suppliers of good clothing and home fabrics, fashion trends, various materials, and more. In this case, you can get this information from the internet, friends, family, and other sources.
The more information you get, the more references there are. But make sure you filter the information you get. Don’t just ‘swallow’ all the information. Choose which one is the most suitable for your business later.
Continue to create business concepts
Don’t miss creating a business concept. From pre-production to production to post-production. Draw a rough outline or outline.
This business concept will help you maximize the business plan that you want to make happen. If necessary, discuss the business concept with the person who is your mentor.
That way, you will get input, criticism, and suggestions so that the concept is better and can be carried out optimally.
Calculate venture capital
Once the concept is compiled thoroughly, it’s time to calculate business capital. Among them are capital to purchase business equipment, procure assets, and office equipment if needed.
If you want to recruit workers, also calculate the capital for employee salaries. Not to forget, the costs of electricity, telephone, water, rent, and other operational costs.
Make sure you have prepared the funds. If it turns out that you still lack capital, while operating and non-operating costs cannot be trimmed, you can take advantage of a loan facility from a bank.
Making business happen
There must be action to make dreams come true. So, don’t just plan and business concepts. Realize becomes real.
Build a business according to the business plan and concept that you have created. Make sure nothing is missed. Run the right production and marketing strategies in order to produce.
Get opinions from consumers
Business has been running for days, weeks, or months, do an evaluation. If you feel it is not on target, evaluate the shortcomings.
Ask for criticism and suggestions from consumers. Do the goods or services that you sell and buy have answered their needs. What should be improved or should be improved from your product.
You can ask for consumer opinion directly, as well as through consumer voices and social media. Mobilize all channels to accommodate consumer aspirations, including complaints. After that, make a thorough repair.
If necessary, develop an existing product or create a new product, so that the product is the answer to the needs and desires of consumers.
Manage profits accordingly
If your business or business is already generating, pocketing profits or profits, manage it appropriately. For example, it was rotated again to develop a bigger business.
Business profits should not be used for personal gain. Because business and personal money is mixed up. This problem is one of the causes of businesses crashing.
Stay focused on building a business
Focus on the business you are building. Thoughts do not branch out or be upset opening other businesses. Better to grow a business from small to large scale. From a national scale to an international one. It’s better than you opening a lot of business, but not being focused. Finally, because it was not taken seriously, all the business went awry.
