What would your top recommendations be for people just starting out in business?
|A huge part about starting a business, and I wish I would have corrected this early on, is letting people know that you started a business. So promotion early on is very important. I wish I had done some promotional things even before the business was started. Case in point; business was going just steady, I wasn't shouting out I've got a business but then I did this thing. My site is "breakfast" my whole business revolves around breakfast, so we got these silly putty eggs and having these eggs as a promotional gimmick giving them out to people who visited the site and contributed to the site increased traffic just immensely, it increased profits. I would have to say out of a $1000 investment in a whole bunch of eggs, I think I probably got back 20 times the return. So promotion, announce that you got that business.|
