2015 is the year of the BOSS CHICK and it’s so beautiful to watch so many women launch new brands and embark upon the journey of Entrepreneurship! As you embark on your Entrepreneurial journey, here are 7 essentials that your start-up will need:
1. A domain
Whenever I think of a new business idea, I check to see if the domain name is available. If it is, I purchase it- whether I have a business plan, strategy or even a full concept in mind. If the concept is on your mind, surely it’s on someone else’s too!
Successful entrepreneurs have established trustworthy brands. In order to gain the trust of your clients, you have to establish yourself as an expert. The easiest way to do that is by blogging about the topics that fit your expertise, industry or interests. Blogging is free and allows you to have a voice!
Do NOT. I repeat DO NOT use @yahoo @hotmail @me @aol or any other personal email extension. If you absolutely refuse to go through the proper steps to get an official @yourdomainname email, at least create a google account dedicated to your business or brand. Whether you want to believe it or not, consumers judge you based on your domain, email and social media FIRST!
