While they appealed to their Ghanaian audience, the tips happen to be applicable in any business far from Ghana.
The tips they shared have been listed below;
Manufacture your products locally
The unstable nature of the dollar can make production outside the country expensive, which would require an increase in the selling price of the products.
Doing that would also help avoid unnecessary shipment costs.
Build a good brand
See the business as a part of you, and do not sleep on it.
Utilize social media
Social media is the new and improved marketing platform.
Set up a page on all social platforms, especially if your business is a start-up.
Having a physical store is unnecessary. In addition, renting a place for a startup business is not cost-effective.
Try and avoid extra expenses in any way possible.
Know your niche and what they want. This will help you sell more and prevent product waste.
Be positive about your business and work hard toward it. Invest positive energy in your trade.
Set targets and put necessary measures in place.
