25/8 Marketing Group shortlisted for StartUp Awards National Series 2022

September is an exciting month for us at 25/8 Marketing Group Ltd, on the 8th September we will be attending the StartUp Awards National Series where we have been named one of the most exciting new businesses in the region after being shortlisted within the B2B Services StartUp category. Starting your own business is always a difficult yet exciting prospect, you want to make it the best place to work in the world but that’s easier said than done. We have pulled together 5 key points to think about before you get started. 1. Start with a solid plan Every good company starts with a good plan. Writing a business plan for the first time can be daunting, but it’s really about just writing down what was in your head to start with. It should include both your short-term and long-term ambitions. 2. Begin networking as soon as possible Professional networking is the way forward. Business is about the connections you have because your network will push your company to the next level. Word-of-mouth marketing has never been stronger. Right now 88% of people trust reviews from online consumers just as they trust recommendations from family and friends. 3. Surround yourself with the right people Running a business is hard and you need to make sure that you have all the right people around you. Mentors and strategic partners will become crucial during this initial growth phase. The right team can help you to accomplish far more than you can do alone. 4. Stay ahead of everyone else To be successful, you need to be able to pivot and keep up with the latest trends. There are so many companies that go extinct just because they couldn’t keep up with what was going on in their field. Make sure that you’re studying your competitors and the major trends in your industry. 5. Maintain a balance between work and life The balance between life and work should be roughly equal. It’s difficult as a startup owner to disengage from your business. After all, this is your baby and it is hard to leave it alone for a single second. However, you can and you should. Founders that want to succeed have to be able to change with the times, maintain a healthy balance, and surround themselves with the right people. The journey is exciting with many ups and downs, but one thing is for sure, trust the process and enjoy the ride. #business #marketing #team #startupbusiness #sua #startupstars #trusttheprocess
