If your dream was to have a startup and that is now a reality, how excited are you about the prospects of being a success?

Yes, having a successful startup takes a lot of time and effort. You will also need to sprinkle in a little good luck along the way.

That said the steps you take from day one with your startup will go a long way in determining its success or failure.

Big Decisions Go a Long Way in Determining Success

In putting forth time and effort to give your startup a chance for success, be sure you have thought it all through.

As an example, where will your startup operate out of?

Along with where you will work from, you also want to think about incorporation for your business.

Incorporating your startup in the First State can be one of the best moves you make.

From tax benefits to a business friendly state when it comes to the courts and more do your homework.

Speaking of doing your homework, you also need to think about if you will need office space or can work from home. This decision will of course be affected by if you will have foot traffic coming to your business. It also will be influenced by whether you have employees working under you.

As you make these and other decisions; think how best to position your business for good things from day one on.

Letting the Public Know You’ve Arrived

Even once you have made decisions on where you may incorporate and will work out of; there is more on the table to do.

One of the big decisions to make of course will be how you alert the public to the fact your startup has arrived.

It goes without saying that you will need to get the message out that you are open for business. If you are in a quite competitive field, getting the message out takes on added importance.

So, think about the resources you can turn to when it comes to promoting your startup.

Among the possibilities would be:

· Your website

· Your social media platforms

· Your small business app

· Your online store

· Your activity in the local community

Those are but a few of the areas you should be focused on so that you are getting the word out to the public.

Finally, provide the best service from day one until the day you decide to call it quits with your startup.

Keep in mind that solid customer service will endear you to many customers. In turn, there is a good chance a fair number of them will recommend you to their family and friends as a result. This of course opens the door to gaining more business before you know it.

When you do all you can for your startup from the minute it is out there and open to the public, you are off to a good start.
