How can I start up a business with low start-up costs?
So, you have decided you want to set up your own business but now you are wondering logistically: How do I do that without spending lots of money? There might be several options out there such as a loan or searching for an investor and deciding the right option for you can be daunting and stressful. It is a fact that money is inevitably essential in the start-up of your business, however, there are also ways in which you can start off without that extra capital.
Social media is arguably the most powerful method of setting up a profile for your business and it comes completely free. From Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tik Tok and Linked In, there are several options you can use to suit your target audience as well as see the evidence that using the latest trends can do for your business. Keep your social media constantly updated and active to ensure you are reaching new people and interact with your audience as well to increase brand awareness.
Utilise the use of free graphic design websites such as Canva. This is a completely free website that comes along with hundreds of templates to choose from suited to each social media platform. It is an excellent gateway into designing templates before potentially upgrading to Photoshop once you start making money.

Google My Business is a key feature you can use to boost your business profile and ensure that your business ranks higher within the Google algorithm. You can add basic information, a website link (WordPress is great for starting off!), regular posts from your social media, reviews, and contact information for potential customers to reach you through. It is a highly recommended resource that will assist in raising awareness for your brand!
