    Spamming forums with pointless lists isn’t a good way to promote yourself.

    Very nice ideas you have shared with us in which I really like your point of the brand that it really important and when marketers think about to expand their business then they need to focus on the branding and they do marketing such as online marketing and offline marketing.

    Great list! I like the idea of hiring the right people because this is so true in so many ways: in the present (how they position/represent your company; how they bring in business) and in the future (will they be able to keep the business going; are they here for the long-haul; could they take over for you if you are no longer able to run the business, etc).

    Also, a point on thinking of the future: this had never been truer for me until I was in the future and having to sell my business (due to circumstances out of my control). Because of my experience, I would say that planning for the future is so important, not only for growing your business but also in planning for things that are out of your control. Selling a business is a lot of work, and while I was doing research on how to properly sell my business and be able to achieve the highest return, I came across "5 Things to Do Before You Sell Your Business," that made me wish I had been more careful throughout the life of my business so the selling process would be slightly easier.

    You have a great list here. Just be sure to think each element over and really consider what it means specific to your business/business idea.
