Who are you? You’re in the food business, yes, but so are many other companies. How do you propose to distinguish yourself from the competition?
A name will be the first thing to make you distinct from other businesses. Take your time choosing the best name for your business. It’s important to choose something catchy yet simple, one people won’t have a hard time remembering and understanding. It’s best to use your business name as the domain name for your website so hopefully, it’s easy to spell, too.
Choose logos, trademarks, taglines, color schemes, and the likes to go along with your name. All these will help define your business and hopefully establish brand recognition.
Mission and Vision
Startup business ideas will remain just like that – ideas – if they are not accompanied with a mission-vision statement. More specifically, you need to formulate goals for your business to give shape and direction for your ideas.
The best goals are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-bound. Vision, on the other hand, must clearly and concisely describe the future you see for your business as well as the principles you wish your business to be founded on.
Plans, Strategies, and Tactics
All talk and no action is what will happen to your startup business idea if you can only enumerate your goals but you’re unable to conceive the best courses of actions for achieving them.
