There are many businesses which could work from within your home. You just need to find the space. Our self storage Brentwood can help.
Deciding to start your own business is extremely exciting but it can be a bit of a minefield as you begin to find out everything you need to do and everything you need to know.
The first step you must take is to define your business goals.
Why do you want to start this business? What are you going to be offering? Who is your target market? How are you going to develop your business?
Next, you must move on to your business plan, using the answers to your goal questions in order to create it. This is also the time to begin conducting marketing research, looking into any other companies that offer a similar product or service to your planned business. Look at their business model, pricing etc.
The next step is where you need to begin making some hard decisions, thinking about the legal structure, the business name, banking and accounting, website and social media and, last but certainly not least, your business location.
Running a business from your home
It is perfectly legal to run a business from your home and it is the place that many businesses do begin. You will need to make sure that you have the necessary permissions from your landlord or mortgage provider or your local council, particularly if you will be having a large number of customers or deliveries.
It is also important that your business won’t be a nuisance for your neighbours and that you are paying business insurance and any possible business rates.
What type of businesses works from within your home?
There are many different types of businesses that will work from within a home environment:
- Web-based services such as social media management and copywriting
- Home-based services such as physiotherapy and counselling
- On-call services such as plumbers or electricians
So long as you don’t need a large office space or multiple offices for staff, your business will work well from within your home.
You will however need to find the space in order to work. For businesses such as copywriting, this will be as simple as making the space within one room in order to set up a desk and your computer.
For services that require clients to come into your home workspace, such as physiotherapy, you may have to think bigger and give your whole home a clear out as your home will have to be inviting for each of your clients.
