Important tips to consider when starting a business

Creating brand assets

So many of you think, now what is brand assets….

Well, that is your logo, colours and fonts you use throughout your business. It is the unique look and feel of your business so that people can recognise you everywhere.

The tool I often use to create free logos and artwork for my business is Canva.com. It is easy to use and you have a lot of options to start creating your brand assets from a logo to facebook posts and so forth.

Make sure your branding is consistent throughout all your social media platforms so your customers can recognise you everywhere you appear. That brings us to the next tip.

Write and practice your elevator pitch

This is one of the most important things you can do for your business. An elevator pitch is a short and sweet description of your business It contains details about who your customer is, what value you offer and how you offer it. It should not take longer than 30 seconds to explain what you do.

Have you ever been asked the question: What do you do for a living? Then you either bore people with the technical details or you don’t even know how to answer it.

This is where your elevator pitch comes in handy. You should create one and practice it in front of the mirror every day. You will need it when you least expect it.
