What's in this blog?
Step # 1
The first step to validating your creative business idea is to do your research. This means looking into your industry and seeing what other businesses are doing. Take some time to read articles, and blog posts, and follow some similar businesses and influencers on social media. This will help you get a better understanding of the market you're entering.
Step # 2
Once you've done your research, it's time to start testing your idea. This can be done in several ways, but the most important thing is getting feedback from potential customers or clients. You can do this through surveys, interviews, focus groups, or even just informal conversations. The goal here is to see if there is a demand for what you're offering.
Step # 3
If you find that there is a market for your idea, the next step is to start putting together a business plan. This will help you figure out the logistics of starting and running your business. You'll need to consider things like your target audience, your marketing strategy, and your financial goals.
Step # 4
The fourth step is to start working on building up your brand. This includes creating a strong visual identity and developing a voice for your business. Your branding should reflect the values of your business and appeal to your target audience. Keep in mind that this is an ongoing process – you'll need to work on promoting and evolving your brand over time continuously.
We are going to talk more about branding in another "blog post" but as a quick sneak peek, let's go over what is branding.
What is branding?
Branding is the process of creating a unique identity for your business. This includes things like your logo, your color scheme, your tagline, and your overall aesthetic. Your goal is to make sure that everything about your brand is consistent and that it reflects the values of your business.
Step # 5
The final step is to take action and start working on making your business a reality. This means putting your business plan into action and starting to promote and sell your product or service. It's important to remember that this is a journey, and there will be ups and downs along the way. But if you stay focused and committed, you'll be able to turn your creative business idea into a successful reality!
