Entrepreneurship should be learned. Learn from practitioners, those who have experience in creating successful companies from the beginning.

In recent years, aspiring entrepreneurs have been interested in doing business. The situation in the youth environment is characterized by an interest in the possibilities of organizing their own business, pronounced socialization, and integration into an active entrepreneurial environment. Many young people who are considering starting their own business have sufficient motivation to take action. The inspiration is enhanced by analysing various information sources that characterize the entrepreneurial activity as less risky in the digital age, giving examples of successful entrepreneurs.

Make a business plan

A business plan is a business project with comprehensive assessments of its effectiveness, building a break-even schedule, analysing profit and loss, marketing statistics, cost planning, and everything related to running a business. After all, this is a step-by-step guide to business development, only on paper. With the help of a business plan, you will see where the main expenses will be directed and what to do in order to stimulate sales growth. Of course, engaging a professional writer service will help you to make your business plan more productive and successful. Although it is impossible to calculate everything, and many well-known businessmen did what they love without a clear plan, it is still worth calculating the basic business scenarios and market volume. All things being equal, good planning won't stop you from becoming the new Steve Jobs.

Bring your site to the first positions of search engines to attract visitors. In other words, as a result of performing specific actions for a certain time, you will finally find your business on the first pages of Google for most queries, and business workers will finally stop being bored with nothing to do. For example, some SEO services in Silicon Valley are offered by Tactica. The company can help you build an online presence and thus advance your career as an entrepreneur.

Or an SEO consultant with extensive experience, if:

  • You need to promote your site in a search and get clients, but you don't know where to start;
  • Positions have sagged, the business is losing or close to it;
  • You understand that there are mistakes on the site in terms of SEO optimization, but you do not know how to find them all;
  • Your site is already promoting, but no results, etc.

Test your product/services with a real audience

Telling everyone you know about a new project is a great idea. But this is not complete testing. Friends may praise a product, but that doesn't mean they'll pay for it. To touch the audience, conduct interviews with strangers from the desired segment via the Internet:

  • Professional forums. Look for active participants to write about them in private messages. If the forum rules allow, create a topic with an invitation to test.
  • Reddit. It is a social news site with a huge audience. Find the topic you need and write messages to the friendliest participants in the discussion.
  • Social networks. Join highly specialized communities and invite members to try the service.


Write to a potential buyer about the project and the desire to consult. Offer a gift or product review in return to appreciate their input. Many people are happy to express their opinion to an interested interlocutor. You will receive honest feedback and as a starting, you might form an idea about the needs of the audience or who is your targeted audience.

Save your money

Novice businessmen are afraid that no one will cooperate with them if they start saving and bargaining with suppliers. Save as much as possible. If you suddenly delete an essential item of expenses, employees will inform you about it. Contractors and suppliers should be bargained with on a regular basis.

Make friends with customers

A few months after the project's launch, the entrepreneur understands which clients are beneficial to him. But at the start, being selective about your audience is dangerous, because you might make mistakes about your potential audience and eliminate them from the list.

Instead, you should be open-minded and patient until you realize your buyer persona. Potential buyers easily find replacements for intractable companies. If you think your customers are not skilled or incompetent, you will lose not only sales but also your reputation. Communicate and be attentive with every potential buyer. Analogous to relationships, sometimes dating leads to success.
