Craze in the field of business is unquestionably high. Most people crave for their own business and those really considerate about it work hard and take the required steps. What really matters is what one wants to do and develop one’s own unique way to do so.
Before starting a business there are certain points that are needed to be kept in mind:
- Problem identification: this is a very crucial step towards the idea of a start-up. The person must be aware of the problem that is existing in the society. Though there are many problems in the society but one has to choose wisely which problem they can take up and take possible steps towards the improvement. For example- trees are being cut down on very large scales for paper production. This is the problem that has been identified.
- Now the next step is thinking of the solution to the problem for developing a product. For example- instead of deforestation, for paper, can be replaced with recycling. Recycling can be done either industrially or at home by collecting all the unused papers from different notebooks and compiling them to form a new notebook. Now this can be of self-help too and also can start a business of those notebooks by selling them as recycled notebooks.
- Industry knowledge: one must be aware of the industry he/she is entering into. Proper knowledge is a must and all the processes and legal proceedings regarding it should be understood well enough. One should be aware about the current market trends and future growth rates. For example- for starting apaper recycling business one must get the necessary permits and licenses for the same and also this is a growing industry as deforestation is a great threat so alternatives are required for it.
- Target customer knowledge: awareness about the target customer (customers to whom the product is required) is required as they are the ones who will be interested the most in the product. For example- students and office workers are the main target customers for the paper industry so proper knowledge about their requirements is required to launch an effective and useful product for them.
Setting up a business plan is a really interesting thing to do but it requires a lot to actually do it in real life. So, one must be ready to take up the challenges and the hardships that would get into the way to achieve this goal.
