We Have Itemized The Ten Things All Farmes Have To Do.

Six out of ten start-up Farmes fall flat in the first three years, and 30% of those do not get through the first six months. To provide you with the best chance of getting through we have put together a list of the ten things you should do to make certain your Farm is successful.

  • Sole trader or limited company? The structure you select for your business will affect the tax you will have to pay and how much legal and fiscal accountability that you are exposed to. If you choose to be a sole trader there is no differentiation between you and your business, whilst the assets and debts of a limited company belong to the organization, as this is a separate legal entity.

  • Define your target audience. Trying to sell everything to everyone will not work. Your company needs to aimed at your likely customers and all that you do, from your companies online store to your advertising, must be relevant to them. Approaching your probable customers will make them feel like they are important to your business, should generate allegiance, and will boost the chances of them endorsing your goods and services to third parties.

  • Size up your Farmes competition. Is anyone else supplying the products and services that you are preparing to provide? What are their strengths and weaknesses compared to your business ? By analyzing your competition you can profit from their errors and also find out what their buyers value. You might also identify the price customers are willing to pay for your goods, and also the way you will characterize what you provide from your rivals.

  • Get your Farm noticed. There is little point in a marvelous concept if nobody finds out about it; so how will you get noticed? Assuming you do not have a considerable marketing budget, begin modestly and plug away at building connections. Utilize social media and online networking to start developing a good image with not only potential buyers, but also local journalists, industry bloggers, suppliers, related businesses and your local chambers of commerce.

  • Create a website. Did you know that half of all small businesses do not have a web presence? Most want one, but either think they cannot afford it or do not have the skills to get it together themselves. This might have been accurate a few years ago, but current website creation tools mean even novices can get an e-commerce website set up quickly.

  • Decide on your USP. Customers will only stop purchasing from other companies, instead of yours, if you supply an improvement or something distinct. Your businesses Unique Sales Proposition describes what is distinctive about your goods and services, describing what your buyers cannot get somewhere else.

  • Work out and obtain the correct amount of funding. In an ideal world you would have sufficient cash to bankroll the launch of your business, but, for the majority, that is not really an option. Instead you can ask friends or family to find out if they may be prepared to help, or you could look at getting a bank loan or track down a financier. You must also find out which grants are available for your organization.

  • Write your Farm Business Plan. Great Farmes were planned that way. This is where you must show that each section of your business works and is realistic. If it is not, should you really go ahead?

  • Decide how your Farm will sell to its customers. What is the organizations route to the market? Examine all your choices, from market stall to eBay store to catalog, to a retail or mobile concession stand, to doing business at networking events or on facebook and twitter, to cold calling or joint ventures or simply advertising via Adwords.

  • Decide when you should open your Farm. You are prepared to open your new company but do not be too hasty to leave the day job. The salary will be handy, as it may be advantageous to put together your business in your down time, and then make the big jump when the company can sustain you and is truly ready for your undivided attention.

When you are taking decisions about your company you must stop and examine these topics:

  • Is this the correct decision for me and my Farm?

  • What significance will this decision have within each section of your Farm?

  • How much will it cost and where will this money come from?

  • If there is not adequate money in the businesses budget, what will you do without and how will that affect the Farm?

  • Are these decisions reflected in your Farm Business Plan?

There are plenty of questions you need to ask yourself about the decisions you have to make. Thinking about your choices while you are under duress may mean trouble but utilizing a well-prepared Farm Business Plan means your decisions are significantly easier to make.
