Startup Your Business
When you go to start a new business there are a variety of things to consider. There is the fun of picking a new name, but also the toil of the legalities involved. You also have to consider where your business address will be and what kind of digital footprint you want. All of these things and more can be helped with by utilizing Officense’s new business startup services.
When you startup a new business, the first thing to consider is where it will be. You can work from home, many do, you can use a p.o. box, or you can rent space somewhere. How much space do you need? How professional do you want your business to appear? Where do you want to locate your business for the best traffic of those you are there to serve? After all, a business is all about making money by serving a portion of the population. The key to any business placement is “Location, Location, Location”.
Registration and Online
Get registered so that your state can properly assess and tax you. Not the most fun of tasks, but a necessary one none the less. After you have accomplished both of those tasks, you need to decide how much of a digital footprint you want. Do you just want clients to be able to email you? Alternatively, given this digitized age, do you want your startup to be found on Google Maps or have a website detailing the service/s you provide? To do this you need to register a domain name and set up a website.
Lastly, is your startup the kind of business that will need someone to answer your phones? Are you someone who does not like to speak to people but still wants to make a profit? Do you expect a variety of spam calls to come in (believe me, you will get far more of those than you dreamed possible, they are not limited to just household and cellular phones)? Do you simply want to be able to focus on your clients one at a time without distraction of setting up appointments for other clients?
