Running a business can be overwhelming, and you’re probably not going to be able to do it all on your own. Unless you’re planning to be your only employee, you’re going to need to build your business team to get your company off the ground.
Your product is built by people. Identifying your founding team, understanding what gaps exist, and determining how and when you will address them should be the top priority. Figuring out how the team will work together is equally important. Defining roles and responsibility, a division of labor, how to give feedback, or how to work together when not everyone is in the same room will save you a lot of headaches down the line.
Except for creating a loyal team, collaborating with more established brands in your industry is a great way to achieve growth. Reach out to other companies or even influential bloggers and ask for some promotion in exchange for a free product sample or service. Partner with a charity organization and volunteer some of your time or products to get your name out there.
Your launch and first sales are only the beginning of your task as an entrepreneur. In order to make a profit and stay afloat, you always need to be growing your business. It’s going to take time and effort, but you’ll get out of your business what you put into it.
