From Heating To Meeting: Upgrading Your Home Business To A Big Company

The stories you hear of people building up their companies from nothing is part of the fabric of self-made millionaires. Their “I didn’t get to where I am today by…” mentality is an incredibly intimidating one, especially when you look at these people and feel you don’t have half the business knowledge or finances behind you. It can feel like a seemingly impossible race to run, especially when there are so many other small businesses or home-run companies clogging up the eBay or trinket-selling markets. Whichever way you look at it, it’s a struggle, and that’s not a reason to give it up. By understanding a few of the fundamentals will give you a renewed sense of perspective and will give you a much better idea of how to build your business from your humble home base to a larger operation.

Don’t Be Tempted To Cover As Much Ground As Possible…

…instead, focus on one single service or product, and then work hard on that one thing. It is a common business mistake to try and spread yourself out as much as you can. However, this will only spread you thin. By focusing right down on one or two products that you know inside out, this is a more sensible approach and is more profitable. Set out what goals you would like to achieve with these one or two products, and how they can be marketed, and go hell for leather with them.

Asking For Help…

…is absolutely fine. In the early days of business, outsourcing freelancers or asking friends or family to help out on occasion will free up cash flow regarding your expenses, but as you are likely to only be able to afford people on a short-term basis, this expands your level of resources. As the business expands and you have an increased roster of people to choose from, you can slowly gather employees and invest in their skills. And by having a big roster of people, this saves you money on things like tax and medical expenses. As time goes on and your business gets larger, you can invest in programs like sales team enablement software to give your staff a basic training ground that everyone can access, saving you time and finances in training them yourself or setting up a training session.

What Can Fit In…

…with your product? Choosing go-along products with your main item is a sensible option. In the retail business, it is very appealing to customers who are looking for related products and don’t need to shop around. If it is all in one convenient place, this will encourage return custom. You could do the Amazon trick and have a discount on buying two or three items at the same time. A wider selection is what customers need out of their items.

When The Time Calls…

…expand to another location. This is a way to corner other markets you haven’t thought of, and if you need to upgrade your business, there are plenty of virtual offices and rented spaces available, so you can hold meetings there instead of at home, making it look more official, which can result in better clients and contracts.
