You may be limited in budget when you want to start your quest in business, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have any options. It’s certainly possible to startup with very little in financing. We’ve all heard of the great tech companies and how they founded; Michael Dell started his Dell Computers back at school, Apple was founded by Steve jobs at his dad’s garage, Mark Zuckerberg also founded Facebook immediately after dropping out of school.
If your idea and plan of action aren’t well thought of, then no amount of money is going to turn it into a winner. If you have a great idea but little money, then don’t let that stop you from your quest to greatness. Below are few ideas that may help your startup off the ground with limited fund
- Build your business around your skills: Instead of venturing into unknown territory, build your business around your skills and knowledge.
- Word of mouth: Tell everyone, your contacts, family and friends of your new found start up. This type of grassroots marketing can help introduce your company to a much larger audience.
- Take advantage of Social Media: Use social media profile, LinkedIn profiles, websites that can be help full on the long run. Social media is a great way to gain exposure and interact with potential customers.
- Get ready to hustle. Hard work is a necessity, but when you are starting a business with little to no capital then you must be prepared to work everything you have into making the business a success.
- Outsource: Outsource what you can’t do, find your friends and colleagues to run errands on your behalf.
Starting a business requires commitment and a passion for what you are doing. Once you find yourself doing something you enjoy, you will be more likely to find ways to make it all come together.
