Start Up Support
Congratulations! You’ve decided to start your own business.
Before you read on please take a moment to celebrate that because that one decision is HUGE!
Right now on to work… where to start?! That is the question.
When it comes to starting a business there is a lot to do and it can feel daunting & overwhelming to decide where to start.
That’s where I can help.
Take a look below at the range of services I offer to support you with navigating the start up of your small business.
Setting Goals & Direction
Before you dive in it’s really important to take a moment to set a direction of where you want to go & what you want to achieve. This helps to give you a framework to make future decisions around. Ensuring that each step you’re making is taking you the right way.
This is the first thing we’d work on together. And don’t worry I’m not asking you to write a big strategy document. Just take some time to set some goals around where you’re going to and what you want to achieve short term (and with a nod to the longer term).
Your Marketing Plan
Once you know where you’re headed it’s time to start getting there!
Before getting into the detail the first step is to define who your customer is. Knowing who you’re talking to and wanting to attract is vital before you start taking any marketing actions.
This can save you a lot of time (& money) and give you a clear focus.
Next we’ll decide where you’re going to show up. In it’s simplest form, marketing is all about reaching your customer where they are. This can be social media, in person, print and more.
Social Media is an obvious choice when it comes to your online marketing, as it’s mostly free to use and you can reach a wide range of people, but you don’t need to be on all the platforms. So as part of our work we will decide where to focus your efforts and what you should use that platform for.
We can also look at other channels and places to market your business. I may be able to support with connecting you with other local businesses who can help promote and grow your business.
It’s important to show up in a consistent way whether that’s online, in print or in person. Having brand recognition can really help boost your business and get people talking.
I strongly recommend at minimum having a basic brand kit to support your business; this gives clear guidelines for you to follow. And can also help save you a lot of time when producing graphics, choosing visuals, writing content and more.
Branding may be an expense that feels a step too far at this point in your start up journey. I’m not a professional designer but do have a creative flair and eye for design so I offer a basic package to support you. If you’re ready for a full branding design then I can recommend a graphic designer for you to work with.
