The money you save is often more important than the money you make.
A common business mantra is that you must “spend money to make money”. In reality, nowadays there is no need for a start-up to spend a small fortune trying to get their business off the ground.
Starting a business by yourself really does not have to be expensive. WinWeb recommend budding entrepreneurs use a technique known as ‘Bootstrapping’ when launching a start-up. The main objective of bootstrapping is to convert a business idea into a fully functional business on the lowest possible budget.
There are numerous ways in which a start-up can bootstrap. If possible, you should run your business from home. Don’t spend a lot of money on supplies for your new office, even if you feel it might be worth it in the long run. Try to barter a discount on absolutely everything – you might even offer to trade your services or products with other small businesses if it will be beneficial.
Don’t spend a fortune on marketing. Instead, try to be creative to find ways to get your company noticed and always use WinWeb software to keep down the cost of your IT overheads.
