3 tips for anyone wanting to startup a company and succeed

When you decide you want to startup a company, you think you have the best idea and everyone will flood to you, but that doesn't always happen. You might not have done the proper research and now you're in a flooded or semi-flooded niche, and now you feel it's too late to back out, so you keep pushing forward since you're not scared of a little bit of competition. It's good to have competition, that means you're in a niche that is making money, and you will be able to tap into that stream eventually when you make your mark on the industry.

It does take a while to brand your company, get a design idea started for your website, find customers, and pretty much anything else consisting of bringing in clients and keeping them happy. If you don't know all of these things prior to launching, you'll already be behind on what you need to do, which puts stress on everyone involved. So, to avoid being over worked and super stressed, follow the tips I'll touch base on below so you can watch everything fall into place and your company will be more successful with what seems like a little amount of work 3 tips for anyone wanting to startup a company and succeed


Always have a great business name, domain, and logo
Your business name is what people will remember when they're talking about you. If they can't remember your name, they won't be able to refer anyone to you, so be sure that you have a name that is easy to remember. You may think it's a great name, but the majority of visitors may think it's one of the dumbest things they've ever seen, so be sure to ask everyone what they think of the business names you're interested in using.

A great domain name will stem from your business name, so I won't touch too much on this. I will tell you to keep it short and sweet so people can remember how to type it easily, which will boost your sales a little bit 3 tips for anyone wanting to startup a company and succeed

Your logo needs to stand out from the crowd, so make it unique, you can even have a logo designer work on it if you don't have any design skills. If you're going to make your own logo or have someone work on it, you need to know what people expect to come across, and this means you'll have to do your competitor research. Check out your top competitors and see what they all have in common, then use that in your own logo, or show your designer these logos as examples.


Know where you're going to target customers before you even launch
If you don't know where you're going to start bringing in customers from, you're already falling behind when you do decide to launch. If you're running a company, you need to know what is going on at every single step, so be sure to have your fingers in the marketing campaign and know where the leads will eb coming from.

If you outsource this work, you don't have to worry too much, but if you're outsourcing to a company that can't produce your leads then they will need to be cut off. If they can't produce, you'll need to do the lead generation on your own, and a good source of leads is usually Facebook and Adwords. If you run some PPC campaigns, and get super targeted, you'll usually be able to bring in some leads without losing any money.


Know what you're going to do to brand your new business
Branding takes a long time, so you'll need to get started on this even before you decide to launch. You'll need to implement your branding strategy into your business name, domain name, your logo, and even how you want people to see you through your content. Yes, your content has a personality, so be sure people see it as a good one and you will be able to brand yourself in a positive way 3 tips for anyone wanting to startup a company and succeed

Work with influencers often and get them to publish content with your logos or links to your website in order to build your own influence. You'll need to do this multiple times with each influencer before it begins to stick, so starting off with influencer marketing as soon as you launch is always a great idea.



In conclusion
Starting a company isn't an easy thing, especially if you're online 100% of the time, because it takes an insane amount of work to get your branding right and get customers into your site that will actually buy from you. If you don't know what you're doing, you'll get overwhelmed, and eventually shut down or sell what you have started. You need to know what you're doing before you even start, this means you need to iron out all the wrinkles and even go over your marketing campaign before you start to think about incorporating. You never know what could happen along the way, so if you already know what you're going to be doing, a problem won't be a massive hurdle since you're already implementing everything else that works well 3 tips for anyone wanting to startup a company and succeed

When I was starting a brick and mortar business, my father suggested using our ancestor name as the business name. I did not like this idea because the name was too long, but I could not refuse him. However, these days I like my business name because the meaning of the name is related to the niche of my business. Since I cater to the local customer, I do not have a website for this business, however, I have many other online businesses. While launching these businesses, I took a lot of care in naming, domain, and logo. My name matches the business names.
I cannot talk about success yet because I am still struggling to get traffic.

Family names are hard to pass up because of emotional attachments to them. I bought a bunch of family related names for my own purposes, but I've yet to use any of them lol. I really just didn't want anyone to have them and potentially ruin my familys name 3 tips for anyone wanting to startup a company and succeed

Getting traffic is tough, you're in the same boat as a lot of us, but it's out there and just takes time to pull in. Some niches take a few months while others take a few years, but both require that you invest your time into it in order to achieve success. So, keep pushing forward and never stop even if you become successful online 3 tips for anyone wanting to startup a company and succeed

Sometime back I bought a domain name for my surname. I bought the domain because I did not want another person to own my surname. I have also bought a domain for my name. My purpose was same like yours. However, I decided to use the domain by setting up my personal website.
Thanks for your encouragement. I appreciate.

The name of the business matters a lot when it comes to the eyes of the public. Some business names that are not attractive fail to get more prospects because those who see the business name are turned off. The Chinese who are the masters of business in our country have a very high regard for the business name. One successful mall here is named with 3 numbers only because the owner said that business name means luck.

I think one thing I have noticed with the startups and the small business is that one has to constantly spend the money and time into this. And this can then take off slowly. You can see that having the positive cashflow in such case can be really hard. I'd say on the same reasons people have to spend money on branding and getting more conversion. This way they don't have to worry about the incremental customers and branding helps in that case to get them new people.

Buzz is important when engaging in a new business venture or startup. You have to make sure that your business starts off on a good foot, and in order to do that - you need to build great amounts of anticipation for it.

Yeah, it is definitely a good point to have a lot of buzz surrounding your business idea. This could be the first step to a successful company.

I have been a freelancer for a few years, that's because I wanted to stay at home and take care of my kids, though I have got a few projects throughout the years, I am not spending enough time and effort to set up my freelance business. I did not have much ideas how to start, but I just my own website and logo. I have to learn more about how to find customers and also do the marketing and branding. There are certainly much more for me to learn, but I will learn it slowly depending on the time I have.

I am so grateful for finding so many good tips and guides from this platform. I feel more confident and motivated after reading all these tips. Thanks for sharing!

I only see 3 bolded tips, where is the 4th tip? 3 tips for anyone wanting to startup a company and succeed

Here are my four tips:

1. Domain name will make or break your website (highly recommended tip)
Always have a domain name that is very easy to remember, you don't want something like "AngelasWholesaleMakeupMarketplace" because that is really long, takes forever to type and is not rememberable. However, having a domain like AngelasMakeup is short, sweet, marketable, brandable, and easy to remember.

2. Get more than 1 type of support system (email, support tickey system, live chat, social media)
Surely you may offer support via a platform, but make sure to also include social media support. It seems a lot of customers will actually contact via your social pages for support more so than on the website itself - i have a lot of experience in this, and most of my own customers reply via email.

3. Know your products actual worth
Some new business owners really don't know how to price products. Make sure you are making a profit and at the same time make sure you can actually sell the product or service at the price in which you priced it at. Don't get too greedy. A good profit margin is 20-30% - you can increase this later as the business grows of course.

4. Customers are actual people -- some with feelings and some with none
A great thing to remember is that yes, your customers are real human beings (hopefully they are human) and have feelings. Sometimes on some platforms they make it seem like you're a hassle to deal with or that they really don't want to help you. Just remember that you know your business inside and out, so some customers may not fully understand something, so be sure to explain it to them, treat them kindly, and they may just come back. Don't treat them like a robot, or a dummy.

@Everett Definitely agree with the fourth entry on that list. Sometimes from the beginning, there's a language barrier or information disconnect between customer and seller. Nothing feels more satisfying than being able to bridge that gap, as the lead-in to a successful sale.

It is imperative to do a market research before actually launching your company. Your business will go nowhere is there is no market. Just like the solar company that opened here in 1980, there was no client for 1 year and the company had lost much. It’s just fortunate that the government lent a hand and gave some contracts. Until now, solar energy systems have a very small market and I think it is not a good business to pursue. A market study will let you know if your planned business is viable.

Every business or company have something to offer and such services are meant for a particular set of people. It's paramount to study such groups and understand exactly what they crave, the stuffs that makes them tick and give it to them as they desire it. It's only in this manner that your business or company can survive and make a big for itself as a result of intense patronizing from the target audience. Never belittle your target audience because they have the power to make or break your company.

Amazing tips! I think this advise is very useful and covers the steps you need to get your business off the ground. In my opinion branding is the most important. I think brand attracts the customer and ensures repeat sales. That's why we have brand awards. Think of brands like Co-cola ,and Pepsi. They spend alot of money on advertising, but if they never made another advertisement again you would still crave your Coke or Pepsi.

I totally agree with you. But I would pay more attention to the legal aspects of registering a company since this is insurance against many risks in the future. More information you will find here. Even considering the stinging change of legislation.
