The chances are that you’ve worked for a wage for a decent part of your life, but you might not have realised the exact nature of the transaction that was going on.

The Top 5 First-Year Mistakes.

Even once you’ve got past the starting-up stage, there are still plenty mistakes to be made, and most of them are going to be made in your make-or-break year — the first one. Here are the top five things to avoid.

Waiting for Customers to Come to You.

Too many people wait for their customers to phone, or come to the door, or whatever. They get one or two customers through luck, but nothing like enough to even begin paying their costs. These people sit around, looking at their competitors doing lots of business, and wonder what they’re doing wrong.

Setting Up a Company.

So you’ve written all your plans, you’ve got any financing you need, and you’re all ready to set up your company. Uh, wait a minute… how do you do that?

The Basics.

A company is an entity, separate from you, that you need to create before you can do business. You decide what type of company it will be, you give it a name, and then you send off all the relevant papers to your government and pay any fees that need to be paid. Even for a one-person home business, it’s good to form a company — it keeps the finances apart, and means that you can sell your company to someone else if you want to. Besides, it might be a legal requirement where you live anyway.

An often-neglected part of home business is the pricing of your services. You know what you can do, you know there’s a market for it, but do you know how much you can get away with charging, without putting the customers off? Here are a few tips to maximise your profit margin.

Find Out What Your Competitors Charge.

Ring round some of your competitors (you might want to use a fake name), and find out what they’re charging for the services you offer. You can then make a price comparison table. If you’re working in an industry where price isn’t a big thing customers look at, you might charge around the average of your competitors’ prices. If price is a big factor in your industry, play aggressively — put your table in your advertising materials, and price yourself so you beat everyone on the list (you might not be able to do this in some industries, however).
