Running a business and starting new business ventures bring forth many new adventures and fun challenges. In the online world, it can sometimes be extremely difficult to gain any headway, even with a truly great idea that you think many people would love to take advantage of.
If you are an entrepreneur or thinking of starting a business, there are a number of rules you will want to remember when planning and running your business. I highly recommend reading through the linked 100 rules for being an entrepreneur if you are in the business world or running your own business.
Some highlights from the list include:
- “Your customer is not a company. There’s a human there. What will make my human customer happy? Make him laugh. You want your customer to be happy.”
- “Don’t be greedy pricing your product. If your product is good and you price it cheap, people will buy. Then you can price upgrades, future products, and future services more expensive. Which goes along with the next rule.”
- “No friction. The harder it is for a consumer to sign up, the less consumers you will have. No confirmation emails, sign up forms, etc. The easier the better.”
Remember, if you are doing what you love, many of these suggestions will come naturally and automatically flow out of you and your business. Enjoy what you do and others will be glad to make sure you can thrive to continue doing it!
