Everyone knows that in today’s world that you can’t depend on an employer for your future. You now have to bet on yourself and build a business that will pay your bills or at least give you more income. This article will show you how to test a business idea before you waste your time.
Money = Freedom
I have been interested in starting a certain business for some time now.
My only hangup was that it would require me to take what resources I have and direct them towards it.
At this current time I am working for myself and my number 1 goal is Freedom.
I am able to continue this Freedom with one thing.
That thing is money.
So I am very careful about what I spend my money on right now.
Until I get myself into a better position I will continue this.
I didn’t want to create a website for $170. (You Need A Website, More On That Later)
I Found A Solution
I have let lack of money keep me from pursuing this idea for a while now.
Nobody is perfect.
We all hesitate sometimes.
But I decided that I was tired of letting my idea sit in my head.
It is a business that could generate good money for me.
There is no need to allow that idea to collect anymore dust.
After searching around I found the solution by accident.
While on Facebook I realized that I could create a Company Page.
This is something that I had never thought of before.
Here is what the screen looks like:
As you can see, there are other options.
For what I was wanting to do, I decided to choose the Company, Organization, or Institution page.
From there I selected Consulting/Business Services.
After I typed in the basic information, now it was time to build the page.
I added all of the stuff such as our Mission and other things.
From there I clicked the Services tab and added the services that I offer.
It was really easy.
I then promoted it and got my first few likes.
But then I started getting private messages from people who were interested in my services.
That is when I got a good feeling that this idea would get traction.
Within 4 hours of creating the page I got my first client.
He is someone who is in the Financial Industry.
This guy already has a website, but he wanted to speak to me about ways he could improve his site.
But now let’s cover if you need a website or not…
Why Not Just Start A Website?
Unless you have money to pour into a venture that may not succeed, I recommend you start with a Facebook Page.
But it also comes down to the kind of business you are wanting to start.
If you are starting a Drop Ship business, I recommend you stay away from a Facebook Store.
Instead start the right way, by creating your store with Shopify.
I’ve already talked about it before but you need to go Pro from the start.
On the other hand if you are starting a Service based business you can get away with starting a Facebook page before your website.
The point I am making here is stop giving excuses for why you haven’t started your business.
You can literally start your business for FREE with Facebook.
So no you don’t need to start a website to get your business started, but you will have to at some point.
