A Case Study on Using Restyaboard for Creating a Virtual CompanyMost people live their lives working on a full or part-time job, but if you are into being your own boss, and have that spark for business, then there are many ways in which you can direct your energy and create for yourself a nice amount of income.
Now, you have the option to create a business that does not require a physical sales place. This means you will need far less capital to begin with, and have access to a lot more people if your project can be presented worldwide.
This tool is proved efficient to me, since it allows you to track activities, hanging them in horizontally on your board by categories, this means, each card will have a list of activities you should do in order and time to get your new virtual company running. Restyaboard is an online or downloadable tool that allows you to create a board of cards, which will be separated in columns so they are easier to watch and manage. Each card can be modified, changed, moved or deleted any time, and may contain images, attachments, files, links, checklists, comments or dates.
Another way to set it is establishing the exact dates as column names (Let’s say January 31 instead of 1st month and March 31 instead of 3rd month)
Ok, now that you know how to structure your board, it is time to tell you how you will star your business by explaining these activities.
Creating a virtual company is not as hard as it sounds, at the beginning all you need is to make yourself a nice name, offer a good product/service, and get tons of followers that may later become your loyal customer community.
The first thing to think about now is what are you going to do, what service or product are you offering to this new market. Try it to be something you know and are passionate about.
At this point is time to validate the possibilities of your new idea, what you are going to do is:
- Search the market for demand or
- Search for your immediate and
You will do all this online, so your first task is to check Google trends where you will be able to see the amount of times people search for your product/service or similar online, how has the interest of people in this subject and an estimate of how it will behave in the future.
This is only valid if you are going to be a reseller or producer, so you should look around for the best quality/price providers you can find to start running your business.
Also now is the time when you have to make your first calculations. Based on how much you spend on each product/service you know how much you will charge your clients for it.
If your site is the store of your new virtual company, social media are going to be, by far, your best advertising places. Creating, feeding and keeping a community of followers in Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat is the cheapest and fastest way to get your business running
Is important to keep in mind, that the base of online marketing is NOT TO SELL, yes, most of the time you will avoid direct selling through your social media, you need to get people’s confidence, and that is done with fun content, promotions and contests mostly.
