Abe Malla: Tips for Starting a Business 1 Ask yourself what values you are bringing in the business To become a successful business in the world you have to Search what significance you are bringing in to the business. Are you feeling the gap between end users and manufacturers Are you offering something that no one else is offering in the target market Is your product or service unique If your product or service is not unique then be ready for competition and hard work. You have to have a good marketing policy that will make the competitor sweat. 2 Do market research and find the chance:- So you think that you have a good product or service to deal. But how good is it exactly Its always good to do some market research for the size of the market price quality delivery time etc. You can opt for professional market research companies. But what if you dont have enough money - the common problem with the startups Just ask your friends and colleagues. What do they think of your idea Keep your mind open for any improvements. 3 Draw the business plan:- The outcomes of the first two stages are positive and you think you can do it.

You can go to the professional guys like chartered accountants and company secretaries. But be aware that they are there to do business dont expect them to give you honest advice. 5 Legal issues and licensing:- Make sure that you know the government laws and licensing procedure for the product/service you are selling. It takes fair amount of time to get through this. You have to plan this very well and well ahead of other things for your company. Do some research and hire the professional to do this for you. Again everyone is there for a reason. So please meet two or three experts and drill down the details and get the clear idea of how they will complete the task. Make sure there are no hidden charges. 6 Marketing plan:- A single most important factor in todays competitive world is marketing. Work out how much revenue you want to generate in a month.

7 Documentation:- If you are going for a partnership which I recommend for young entrepreneurs make sure you put the agreement in an official document. Make sure everything is clear right from investment to profit and loss sharing. The partnership also shares your risk efforts and also it will bring in the more professional network which is vital for the startups. 8 Always good to have the technical knowhow: - Whatever business you are in make sure your company has technical expertise in the relevant field. How worth it would be if your marketing team get you the business but you simply can not do it. Soon the motivation for the marketing will dry up. Marketing is good to get new customers and technical expertise is a proven tool to keep the customer satisfied and bond with you in long teams. 9 Organizing and planning everything:- Something that we never been taught of until we do professional work. Emails meetings conferences follow-up calls contacts all sort of daily work - Plan it. Organize it properly with the latest technology like Google applications and other personal information manager software available for free. Make planning and organizing as your work culture and make everyone follow this. This single thing prevents so many reworks and saves a good amount of time we spent on just searching for things. 10 The Golden Rule- Never Give UP: - There you have it. You have heard it so many times before and here is the perfect time for the execution. If you are an entrepreneur you are always a winner because entrepreneurs never give up. If one idea doesnt work then another will. Keep trying and success is sure.
