So You Started a Business – Now what?

Man runs fingers through hair in frustration

What happens after you start your business? What comes next? This is a topic I feel I can speak on with some authority – I’ve been in your shoes! Whether you started an Etsy store for those cool whats-its you make, or incorporated a services or products-based business, the next steps can be scary and confusing. If you’re not careful, your business may join the 80% of entrepreneurs Bloomburg says will fail in the first 18 months.

A coherent marketing plan is an essential part of ensuring that you don’t join the ranks of failed businesses, but at the very beginning, it often feels as though everything needs to be done at the same time. You have to: build and launch a website, design a logo, print business cards, start social media, write blogs, seek funding and clients, and the list goes on. Now, you can try to do all of this on your own, or you can hire experts, consultants, and specialists to save you time, headaches and – yes – money.

A consultant like BJG Consulting can knock out your to-do list in less time than you, and with better results. Need a URL? We can get that for you. Don’t even have a business name? Cool, we love to brainstorm. No logo? Let us brainstorm with you and introduce you to one of the many talented graphic designers we love. Have a URL but no website to park on it? We gotcha covered.

So don’t let your new business, or even new business idea, drag you down before you’ve had a chance to take off. We’re here to help you make your business successful.
