Get Your Business in Order
The world we live in has become more technological and now social media is like the core to every business, if your business does not have a website then you are already five steps closer to business failure.
Experts in business and those who are ruling the world with their businesses always give one advice saying that if your business is not on the internet then you do not have a business.
So how can you get your business up? Well the most easiest way to get started with your business is to have an official website for it, because if you have a website it makes people to easily what exactly your aim and goal is and most people might end up falling in love with your website if it has a good look and easy navigation lol.
Apart from having a website creating social media account for your business is also a good thing as it creates transparency and makes people trust you more because they know that one’s they have an issue they can easily contact you, do not go creating an account on all the social media platforms as that’s a waste of time create account in platform that you are sure can get your more reach to potential customers such as Facebook and Instagram.
Get Licensed By The Government
You will also need to meet the government of your country and inform them about your business ones that is done get your business registered and start developing your website.
Get A Reliable Supplier
This is the next big step, you can not just enter into Importation and exportation with out having a reliable supplier that you can get goods from.
We do not recommend you going to google and searching for suppliers even though they might seem reliable they just can not be trusted a hundred percent.
That’s why we suggest picking suppliers either from alibaba, global sowels and thomas register.
After getting suppliers you will need to convince the suppliers of the benefit of partnering with you.
Price your Product And Locate your Customer
Now you must have done your product research as well as done the basics and found a supplier next up is to set a price on your product.
Make sure you do not charge much for customers as I have seen lot of businesses losing sales due to high price, make sure your price falls within the range that your customers will be willing to pay for.
Find your Customers
Now it’s time to locate your customers and know who you will be selling to, I suggest you find your Customers first of before even starting up with the basics.
