North Star Multimedia has created these specialty workshops with a marketing overtone because we constantly hear in social situations and read on social media about the dilemma of taking an idea and translating into a fundamentally sound business plan. Marketing as an umbrella will be key into meeting those benchmarks of building your foundation. We feel these specialty workshops can help your business tremendously.
According to a report by the SBA, the survival rate for new businesses is not very encouraging. About half of all new establishments survive five years or more and about one-third survive 10 years or more. As one would expect, the probability of survival increases with a firm’s age. Survival rates have changed little over time. Our experience along with other articles available on the internet typically indicate that 8 out of 10 businesses will not survive 24 months.
Ok, you have a great idea, you have funding, you have a business plan…And, all of that you came up with yourself. This is your baby. The hardest next step is to reach out and get professional guidance on how to implement the basics of marketing to ensure you establish your brand that falls inline with your Mission Statement. Oh, you don’t have a Mission Statement? Go back to START because most failed businesses will show they never had a Mission Statement.
