How Small-Scale Start-Ups Can Help You Create a Blueprint for Success
For many people, this time of year brings out that inner-yearning they have for taking their entrepreneurial ideas to the next level. They want to start a business but are hesitant to jump into a significant investment when they have so little experience. However, at AVPS, we believe that the best businesses come from passionate people who scaled their operations smartly. In our incredibly unique economy, they have the ability to explore unusual business models that allow them to give their ideas a proverbial test drive without overextending themselves financially. Likewise, creative use of social media platforms gives them free marketing, and innovations like mobile credit card processing give them a world without limits.
Starting a small-scale test business begins with reimagining the traditional model of your genre. For example, if you’ve dreamed of opening a restaurant, you have other avenues to test your skills and marketing. Food trucks, event supper clubs, or festival booths can give you a way to get experience while building your reputation. If you have created a new product, a website, trade shows, or collaborative pop-up storefronts all connect you with customers and their feedback.
Whatever your market, you still need to have the basic foundation of any successful business. You need a budget, proper permits if applicable, a merchant account, and payment processing, even if you are simply using a mobile phone credit card reader.
At AVPS, we believe that small-scale test businesses can be an incredible opportunity for both entrepreneurs and their communities. They allow for creativity, promote innovation, and give new business owners the opportunity to learn with minimal risk.
