Making a plan for a project using an online presence as well as social media platforms is a huge amount of work. I’m talking more than you could have thought of. The first step is planning. Planning isn’t just for the website, but for all its parts and elements like those of the Vision and Mission statements, the Goals, and the overall business model, along with the strategy for the various “divisions” that comprise the business. Even if you’re only one person in your business, it isn’t a reason to stop you from needing to follow all of the same steps. This just means that the group of decision-makers is smaller. The process will remain exactly the same. You need to be aware of where you would like your project to take you, what kind of revenue you expect, and the method you’ll use to reach out to your market. That brings us back to the necessity to be aware of your audience’s preferences and what they are spending their money on.
It appears that there are endless hours spent putting all the information and ideas. People who skip the steps might be successful, but those who follow each step determine what is relevant to their company and then proceed to integrate this information into the plan are much more likely to reach the revenue stage quicker.
If you’ve ever seen The Dragon’s Den as well as Shark Tank, then you will be aware that the investors want to know the steps you went through to arrive at where you are now. The ones with no or little income are less likely to get funding like those who have the best strategy and are executing it with some satisfaction. My concern is, “Where are you in the process of planning in relation to your company or project?”
Here are some ideas that you might be able to implement. They come from my own experience as an entrepreneur and in an executive team in a large corporation.
1. Be aware of the market you’re about to join.
How many consumers are in this market? What percentage of people purchase products similar to the ones you’re planning to launch? Are there opportunities for a third competitor? Are there any features that are not present in the existing offerings that your market would want to own and be willing to
2. Choose a model for your business that is suitable for your needs.
Do you plan to operate solely online? Do you plan to have an actual store? What is the location where you will do the majority of all of your job? What are your working timings?
3. Are you a solopreneur?
Are you planning to hire other employees? Do you plan to outsource some or all of the tasks?
4. What is your strategy for marketing?
What strategies will you employ to implement that strategy? If you plan to use Social Media, do you have software to automate your posts? Do you have enough bandwidth in response to queries or questions? What are the platforms you use, and how often will you be a part of them?
5. Who will develop your website?
Are you the one, or do you use the drag-and-drop software that will simplify the process? Are you able to draw on your SEO (search engine optimization) experience to be able to do an excellent job with your traffic-driven efforts?
6. What other activities are you involved in?
Do you volunteer within your local community? Are you a regular attendee at networking events? What is the time you’ve scheduled to study your field? What hours are you available to be physically in shape?
In the event of the start of your business, it is essential to be all-encompassing to everyone from the beginning. You are the business and should take care of your health as well as that of your company as well as your family. It is not a good idea to ignore anything. If you require extra time to get everything done, ask for assistance from other people.
