    1.provide value to community.
    it may help you engage more audience and create more fans.The more you provide value,the more they love you,
    the better your businesses is.So,Engaging the online community is core to social media and one of the keys to your success.
    2.Marketing or advertising:
    you have to choose either invest time or invest money.Sometimes we need both.If your budget allows,
    put some funds toward Google AdWords to help bump your website to the top of search engine results.
    the easy way,you can advertise manually on Facebook,linkedin,Twitter for free but in a matter of time,
    it can't be compared to paid traffic.
    3.focus on quality not quantity.
    There are tons of method you can use along the way but just a small number really work.Yuor job is find out it and focus on
    what make you money and we also call "Repeat what worked".

    For any small business, especially one that is just starting out, the quality of the product is key, along with customer interaction.

    Customers like to feel wanted and that their custom is important to you, you don't have to thank them for their custom or anything like that, just ask them about their purchase, if they're happy with it, just general interaction to make them tell others how good the service was, and to also make them want to come back themselves.

    I also believe in quality and not quantity. However, my friends who are into business follow the profitability principle that if there is no profit then there is no business. For them, it does not matter if what they sell is quality or not because their reason is the cost. If the product is of poor quality then you pay low and if what they sell is of high quality then the price is high. With marketing, it is not enough to advertise depending on the product you sell. Sometimes you have to reach out ot your market with promos and presentations.

    Nothing happens overnight. Any business owner must be willing to work hard and for a relatively long time before they start reaping the fruits of their labor. Once you start a business which you are certain will earn you some money when you feel like giving up [when things don't go as you planned, and they will], always remember that a positive attitude will see you through the tough times. Keep your eyes on the goal and no matter how slow the progress might appear to be eventually you'll have what you sought in your grasp.

    My tip is to underpromise and over deliver. For example, when I sold on eBay, I would state shipping times as 3-5 working days. In reality, I was always able to ship the item the next day after payment. This led to a great deal of positive feedback, saying the item arrived much quicker than expected.

    Give them what they want, not what you want to give them. That's something I've learned to me cost - creating a service that I thought that the market wanted without getting a feedback loop to get an idea of what type of product they would be willing to pay for. Quality is always important, though producing the very best of the best isn't always required. Giving them more than they expected is enough, in my view.

    As someone with close to two decades of business experience, I can definitely agree with those points you've put forward. However, another point that should be added is that it takes at least 2 years (in most cases) to build up a profitable small business. Therefore patience is an absolute necessity, people that want to make large sums of money quickly - will fail.

    I know of other people who started out very strong in their first year of business, only to burn out and go bust by their second or third year. Obviously they didn't take time to build up their business correctly, only focusing on the income they could generate.

    I think quality matters the most. If you have a quality products then no need to invest on advertising. The peoples will automatically advertise your products by sharing their experience with friends, office staff and on social networking.

    My tip for everyone who run some business is to get a good and reliable lawyer. There are some great law companies nowadays which specialise in different business issues like linkagemind.com which can make running a business much easier. Has someone used a lawyer in business? I guess, yes :)

    A proper SEO company or consultant will help you get more traffic to your website and in turn to credible leads. There are digital marketing companies that help in getting a lot of positive leads by providing more visibility to your business service through online medium and social media.
