In this article, we'll outline the basic steps you need to take to start a business from nothing.Watch the training video here.
Let's get started!
Starting a business can be a daunting task. You have to worry about funding, marketing, and operations--not to mention the actual product or service you're providing.
LIke my client Lysa.
Lysa had been wanting to start her own health and wellness business for a while now. She was passionate about helping people live healthier lives and felt confident in her ability to do so. But she was struggling to get any clients. She had tried working for free in exchange for testimonials, but that wasn't generating enough business.
But one day, Lysa came across one of my articles that outlined a simple framework for getting your first client quickly. She decided to give it a try and within one day, she had secured her first client! Lysa has been growing her business ever since using this same framework.
Start a business from nothing by using a framework for success
When you have a framework for getting clients, starting a business becomes much less scary. The thought of having to "sell" can be daunting, but if you have a system in place to attract clients that need your product or service, it becomes a lot easier. There are many ways to get clients, but some of the most effective are networking, referrals, and online marketing. If you focus on these three things, you'll be well on your way to getting all the clients you need to succeed.
But when you have no plan, getting clients and starting a business can seem impossible.
It's no wonder so many people are afraid to start their own business. With all of the unknowns, it can feel like taking a leap into the dark. The biggest unknown for most people is probably getting clients. How will you find them? How will you know if they're the right fit for your business?
And once you get them, how will you keep them coming back? These are all valid concerns, but there are ways to mitigate the risk. First, let's take a look at how to get clients. There are a number of ways to go about this, but the most important thing is to be strategic.
Starting a business with no money takes work
You can't just put up a website and hope people will find you. You need to be active on social media, attend networking events, and maybe even run some ads. But getting clients is only half the battle.
The other half is keeping them happy. This means providing great customer service, being responsive to their needs, and always going the extra mile. If you can do that, you'll be well on your way to success.
You're tired of working for other people. You want to build a business that works for you, and you need help getting started. But where do you start? How do you get clients without spending all your time marketing? And how can someone with no experience possibly compete against the big guys?
Take a shortcut to success by getting business mentorship
I've been helping small businesses succeed online since 2001. My mentorship program is designed to give new entrepreneurs everything they need to launch their own successful online business in just 30 days or less! It's like having me by your side every step of the way as we go through each phase together - from setting up your website and social media profiles to building an email list.
A lot of people think that starting a business is a very chaotic thing where you just have to wing it and hope for the best. But the truth is, when you have a plan and you stick to that plan.
You're able to get your first clients much quicker and then you have a structure you can follow every day. That structure gives you the ability to see what's working, and what's not working, and make course corrections as you go along.
When you don't have a plan, it's very easy to get sidetracked and not focus on the things that are actually going to move the needle in your business. So if you want to start getting clients quickly, make sure you have a plan and stick to it.
