If starting a business is on your agenda for the year, or if you had a business idea that you couldn’t bring to life in 2021 then 2022 is the perfect year to get that business started while you’re on campus. Here are 5 tips for starting a business on campus that will turn your money-making new year resolutions into a reality.
Be Creative With Your Ideas
If you’re trying to start a business on campus, then it’s true that you have to be creative. If you want to start doing make-up, it might be difficult to get people to use your services just because of the number of make-up artists that there are on campus. While you’re trying to come up with a business idea instead of doing exactly what is working for people, don’t limit your thinking about the different ways that you can provide value for other students.
Use Social Media To Your Advantage
All it takes is one viral tweet to get your business and your profits sky-high. However, getting to that viral tweet takes time and before that you can still leverage your social media following to get clients for your business. If you’re cooking stews for other students for a fee, take videos of the food and share on your socials to get more people to buy.
Do Some Research Beforehand
When you have a business idea that you think will make you some money it’s a good idea to get some feedback from your friends or people who have experience with a similar business in order to learn about the problems that you might encounter and to learn if people actually want what you’re planning to sell.
Use Graphics And Videos To Make Your Business Stand Out
If you’re sharing ads for your business online, you can only get so far sharing text and telling people about your business. Visual ads are much more likely to catch people’s attention. And the good thing is that you don’t even have to be a pro to make ads for your business. Tools like Canva and the Boosted mobile app simplify the whole process and allow you to create graphics and videos easily on your phone.
