It’s often a wonderful experience when you actually get an idea that can work in the real world from which you can make money. You build on the idea and try thinking about it day-in and day-out! If one is really serious about the idea and really wants to pull something off and make it big, then obviously one would have to work for it!
A business idea can come from anywhere. It can come from an entrepreneur, an engineer, a doctor, a manager, an investor, a business owner, a consultant, an expert, an artist or even from a common man. All it takes is the will to work harder than everyone else to make the idea work and transform it into a reality and of course into a money-making process.
When we think of a business in general terms, there are two things that play major roles. One is the product, and the other is the service the product can offer.
The product takes R&D, multiple rounds of processing, coding, programming and a lot of technical details.
Service, on the other hand, is all about what the product can offer, how economically viable it is, how feasible is the solution at hand, and so on.
“At the end, if the product has to sell, one needs to know and master the art of selling services!”
So, let’s say, you have an idea, and now you are trying to set it up in the market. You are trying to work on the product and are now trying to sell it to potential customers. At this stage what really seeks priority is the art of knowing who and what the market is. In other words, you need to know the nuances of how the market works.
Therefore, it is rightly said that building a product does not seal a deal, building a service does!
Let’s look at some of the aspects of running successful businesses around the world.
- Sustainable Development and growth of a Business
One can own a house, by either buying it or by building it. One may not be satisfied after buying a house maybe because it lacks certain things you’d prefer. One can, however, design everything of a house according to preferences by choosing to build a house rather than buying it.
It’s the same as a product. What is the use of having a product and not being able to sell it?
The objective of a business idea should be well defined from its services and not the tech details that go into it. That way, one can think of engaging a customer right from the very beginning of the negotiation process. Therefore, business ideas should thrive of its services to be able to sustain in the market on a long-term basis.
Building a fool-proof business development model, therefore, should be a priority.
- SMART Goals on a Business
We often have spoken about the importance of how SMART concept can affect a business ecosystem. SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time Oriented.
The foremost aim of any business must be well-defined objectives with regard to the above aspect. Business development directly or indirectly involves SMART goals that are designed to make something quantifiable without compromising the standards of quality.
- Dynamic Variation in the Business Process
Every business before it can lead should get involved in a dirty-race where things and trends change in a matter of hours. People that are hired to work for in such an environment must be people who can be dependable and are willing to accept change and work accordingly.
When a ship enters the sea/ocean, no one knows if the ship is going to sail, what are the wind conditions, what to expect and so on. A captain will not abandon his ship just because the weather is harsh or unpredictable; instead, he learns to adjust the sails. That is what we mean when we say, change dynamically.
The only thing one needs to sincerely follow thereafter is to adapt and evolve!
- Strategy Cell-Building
Ever wondered how the biology class would explain a living Cell?
Similarly, in business, we can compare strategies to a cell. It’s all about how well you form strategies and how well you execute them in order to build a successful company.
Let’s take Marketing System for instance. There are three aspects that count. New Competition, Quality of Services that one offers, and what happens if one misses the deadline on customer delivery. One also needs to frame a strategy around it, such that it can be measured and taken care of without much hassle.
For example, we need to check creative marketing approaches, problems in production systems, and innovative techniques that will help you scale and look into alternative timelines.
- Evaluate your Strengths
You should begin by answering the following:
What am I good at?
Will my service and skill sell in the market?
Would anybody require a product like mine? If yes, then why?
After answering all of them, one needs to check if you have what it takes to deliver accordingly. One needs to know what the strong points of the product, what are the services it can offer, how well the services can work for a customer and what impact it’s going to create in the market.
