Hey so as a new business myself, I was wondering what your key points would be for someone who is currently thinking about setting up or who have only been going for a short amount of time,
My points would be:
Know your market,
Research your competitors,
Realise you might not be able to do everything yourself (this one is the hardest for me and I am now 5 months in and only just realising lol)
I look forward to reading your key points

Good topic, will be interesting to read other peoples comments and I am sure that they will differ. My 4 points would be……..
1 – Do what you say you will do! – Example, If you tell a client you will get that email to them by 4pm get it to them by 355pm.
2 – Thank your clients for the order etc – After each of our events we send out a postcard in the post with images of the event they attended as a thank you for attending. Nothing better than saying thank you and the office seeing this.
3 – Don’t get lost working in the business rather than on the business – Although you must get your internal infrastructure, website, twitter and business working right you can lose yourself in it, you still need to work outside your business
4 – Don’t be afraid to ask for help – Find local enterprise hubs, organisations and get help and connect with them. They have a wealth of connections, support & guidance that could help you with an issue you can’t solve or need advice with no matter how small or big it is.

I am inspired of some other online business sites, they have really this great success, I thought that is because of their well driven marketing strategy as well as the brand they have. Speaking of branding and naming firm, I am eyeing on this naming firm at http://eatmywords.com/ and reviews are great for startups that has a need for brand naming. Did someone here find this company awesome?
