There are many different types of business ventures out there. There is an option for everyone. However, when we consider business start ups, you tend to focus on the same aspects time and time again. Of course, this is great as an overview however you need to consider your business to be as unique as you are.

So along with the basics of choosing what you will do, logo design, advertising, getting set on social media, etc, here’s a list of other parts of the business setup you need to consider and why. 

Your Business Niche

You’ve got your product or service in mind already and have a plan to get this out there into the wide world. Whilst, at this early stage you may not be considering expansion, it is important to delve into that unknown aspect and set goals. It could be expanding your product range. In this case, you’d want to consider whether you will expand your products, what other products you want to sell. This is where knowing your niche and your market really helps. It will help you establish a client base that will be able to continue coming back to you time and time again for their needs. The same principle applies to services too. By understanding your target client in depth now, you can plan those future steps within the services or products in the future. For example, if your service is landscaping and design you might want to venture into sales of plants, soils, wood. 

Start A Blog

Having a blog is not a business essential. However, it does help you build a better relationship with your customer. Linking back to knowing your niche, your blog should be targeted at the same audience. 

Your blog is an opportunity to show how much of an expert you are in that field. It allows you to let your personality shine through, which when setting up a new business is important as the customers are not just buying a product or service they are buying into you and what you embody. By building up a blog you’ll also be able to build up your search engine optimization (SEO). By doing this you will rank higher when someone does an interest search. This should drive people to your blog and your shop or site and help you continually gain organic customers. The even better part is, that blogging is inexpensive. By committing some time, you are generating content that is relevant and helpful to your customer market, inputting keywords that will help you show higher on online searches, whilst strengthening your brand and the relationship you have with your clients. 

Consider The Extra’s 

As you already know each business is different and unique. It is that very quality that makes your business stand out from the rest. So with that in mind, every setup is different. What each business requires is different. 

When considering your setup and getting going, you have probably already considered the big parts such as where you will work. Will you lease a building, work from home and will you require transport.

But, it is the small parts that help establish your business as a professional as well as guaranteeing your startup will go ahead smoothly. With any new business, it is worth considering copywriting your design, putting insurances in place whether this is for a separate building or your home. Along with also considering if your business will include travel having someone on speed dial to help you out if you encountered any mechanical issues such as if you needed a tow. 


When starting up, you don’t automatically think of hiring help or outsourcing help immediately as this increases your expenditures. Although this is true, the benefits of considering outsourcing and taking on help outweigh the cost aspect. Think about all that you need to accomplish within that first year of your business. You’ve got to work on making or completing the service, finances such as billing, invoices, and taxes, building and maintaining a presence within social media, writing a blog as well as living as an individual or even possible holding a second job down until your own business is more established. 

As you can see this is a lot. The joy of outsourcing is you are taking the load and passing some of it to a person who is an expert within that field and freeing up your time to focus on parts of the business you carry the most influence.
