This post deals with your initial marketing drive and marketing your new business in general. In the first three parts of the XYZ Business Startup Service articles, we looked at creating your Corporate identity, Computer requirements, and Online presence. In this article, we take a look at your initial Marketing Drive.
A good initial marketing drive
A story told by Richard Branson about a move he made while starting Virgin Atlantic. It starts with British Airways was to lift up the wheel in London, from its lying down position. At first, British Airways did not manage to lift the wheel all the way and had to try again.
In the meanwhile, Richard Branson responded by arranging a blimp to fly over the wheel, at that point still lying down. On the blimp, a gigantic banner sying “BA Can’t get it up!”.
That instantly made the papers and drew lots of attention giving Virgin Atlantic valuable exposure. You can see a short piece during an interview here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4IMf5KO-Ntk
The idea is to get your products or services known, get people talking and excited about your products, and make sales. To do this we bring together and use as many parts of your business as possible.
It does not matter what type of business you are starting, you need a way to become known.
Components available to use in your first Marketing Drive
At this point your startup business is opening doors, you are stocked up, the staff is trained, everything ready. The parts available to use in your initial marketing drive includes:
- Graphical branding elements: logos, posters, etc.
- Your website with the right features ready to use.
- Facebook Page and Twitter to attract people to the website.
- All your equipment and employees.
- Your products/services with some promotions.
A little bit goes a long way
To create your first marketing drive you need a great idea and the right tools to build your initial marketing drive.

Some basic advertising skills will save you money and help to speed things up, during your new business startup.

Having some basic advertising skills helps to streamline and reduce costs. Insight of requirements helps when you decide to use a marketing company. Understanding some of the requirements like logo size and image resolutions and file formats can speed things up.
More than an initial marketing drive.
A false belief existed for a long time. This is that you simply get a single page online, and you make sales. Not so easy and not the way it works. How it really works is that a web site must stay active to make it worthwhile.
Social activity is used as a measure to determine which websites to show first. Obviously the busier website gets more priority.
We spend time together.
Trying to market your business online can become difficult without the right set of tools. By using the XYZ Business Startup Service you get the tools set-up, and ready before you open your doors for business. We take care of all the setting up and configuring for you.
