Small Business Startup Checklist

If you are planning to launch a new small business in the upcoming year, you’ll want to ensure you have everything prepared to put yourself on the road to success. Keep reading as I share my small business startup checklist and the things that any small business owner needs to have in place before launching their company.


1. A Business Name

One of the first things you need to consider is your business name. This will have a huge influence on your website and branding, so you’ll want to do this before getting started with other tasks. I recommend choosing a name that is timeless so that you can use it for many years to come as your business grows. Check out this business name generator.


2. Website

Your website acts as your storefront to the world online. Many businesses today solely operate online, and so they need to be able to take payments securely and interact with customers. I’m here to support you with that task and create a high-quality website that will help grow your business. No matter what type of business you are launching, we’ll work together to create a site that will attract new customers from around the world. View my web design portfolio.


3. A Business Plan

Without a business plan, you’ll have no idea where you are heading with your small business. Before you launch your first product or service, have a plan in place for the next year or two. You need to spend time looking at the finances for your business to ensure you have everything in place to successfully fund your venture.

Having a Small Business Checklist is A Great Idea.

4. Business Bank Account and Taxes

Keeping your personal and business finances separate is critical for a small business owner. Make sure you set up a business bank account before you sell your first product. You’ll also want to take the time to research taxes for small business owners. Remember, there’s always professional help on hand if you aren’t sure where to get started. Don’t ignore this side of running a small business though, as you’ll find that in the long run, it comes back to bite you.


5. Suppliers

If you plan to sell a product on your site, you’ll need to secure a good supplier or manufacturer. Ensure you purchase a sample product ahead of time to check out the quality of the items, and make sure you’ll be happy sending this to members of the public. Don’t rush the process of finding the right supplier, as hopefully, you’ll be able to work with them for many years to come.


6. Social Media Accounts

As well as creating your business website, I’ll also be able to help you with your social media accounts. You’ll find that this is another great way to attract attention to your business online and boost your sales. We’ll choose the right platforms based on your industry to ensure you are attracting the right client base.
