Starting a business consists of research, employee’s, a business license ,permits, finances and marketing. In some cases you might have to wear all the hats until you can afford to hire employees. Right now I find myself in that position of wearing all the hats to sustain my vision.
My challenges are ongoing, I’ll get into more details in a future post about going into business for yourself however my biggest challenge is maintaining a consisted social media presents. When preparing good content and product you don’t have time to focus on your social media presents at least not in an effective way. I now understand why big companies hire social media managers.
If you learn to leverage Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc. theirs no better marketing tool, besides word of mouth. If you have a great product people will talk and spread the word.
