Tips to starting a business in 2021

Posted: 02 July 2021

Start Up

The business landscape has shifted dramatically in the past year, creating new opportunities for small businesses and increasing the popularity of working remotely. Keep the following tips in mind when starting your own business in 2021. 

  1. Define your target audience. As a business owner, you should have an established understanding of the market you are entering and the audience that you’re targeting.  
  2. Collaborate strategically. Whether you have a business partner and employees or you outsource services, make sure that you select your relationships wisely. Make sure that you have the right people by your side to help your business grow.
  3. Solve a problem. The most successful businesses are those that provide a solution to a problem. Once you’ve isolated a problem and figured out how to solve it, you can build a better understanding of your customer and their needs. 
  4. Prioritise SEO. Starting a successful business in 2021 means that your online presence needs to be a priority. Focus on building a solid SEO foundation to benefit from future returns. 
  5. Streamline your budget. Starting a business requires capital and strategic investment. Consider your financing options and carefully determine your budget when drafting a financial plan.

This week, we profiled three businesses that make use of Storage King’s affordable and secure self storage to cut costs and boost profits during this difficult time. See who we featured below.
