Research Toolkit

You might convince yourself that your idea is the best thing since sliced bread. ( I wonder what ideas were compared to before sliced bread...any ideas? Let us know!) business toolkit
Anyhow, unless you actually set about researching whether or not there would actually be a demand or even if there’s a need for your business, you may be wasting your time.

And then once that’s been done and you discover that the world actually wants you, the research goes on.
You’ve got to start researching things like:

  • your business name
  • registering your website
  • where you’re going to set up
  • what are the costs to startup
  • where are you going to get the money you need
  • how and where can you promote this wonderful idea of yours

One thing to remember? Guesswork and assumptions don’t really work where research is concerned.

And to make your research a tad easier, we’re highlighting some resources and tools that will do just that.
