Startups have taken us over with surprise, at least India if not the world. The government’s initiatives like Start up India Stand up India and Make in India among others have increasing boost up the number of startups running today. Apart from the push that the economy gives and the inborn talent our generation is blessed with, there are certain strategies one must adopt to climb up the stairs of success.
Here we bring to you the seven ingredients to successful entrepreneurship.

1. Say a Big No-No to Copy Cat-ting
Don’t doubt your intentions. It is a general human tendency to look up to the ones better than us and try to be like them; try to copy them. Appreciate their efforts, idolize them, but do not attempt to copy what they’re doing to be successful. It is only natural to face ups and downs in business, but always remember it is the authenticity that wins; world looks up to a model and not a photocopy.
Be unique, be yourself.

2. Know your Customer In and Out
You cannot be successful unless you know who the end receivers of your product are and what exactly are they expecting from you. To be a successful entrepreneur, target the audience you expect to benefit from. An arrow launched without a target hits nowhere.

Know your customers, study their needs and expectations, only then your efforts will be effective. Accept the criticism and make amendments accordingly to ensure smooth growth of your business.

3. Simplicity is the Best Policy
And too many chefs spoil the dish. Focus on one idea that you want to work towards. Indulging in too many aspects and overloading yourself with ideas and information will only make it complex. With disoriented and complicated algorithms, delay is guaranteed. Put in all your efforts at working out one product keeping it as simple as possible.

Your customers too will not frustrate over your products’ ambiguity. Keep it simple.

4. Keep a Backup of Strategies
The dynamic environment in which firms operate, demands for spontaneous strategies. Sticking to one rigid strategy will only guarantee failure. A successful entrepreneur must keep a bag full of plans which may be opted if the current one fails to work. Backup strategies must be ready to be implemented as and when the need arises. Not relying only on one form of marketing, not investing heavily on one product alone etc are some examples. One may even secure his business by inventing in more than one business as a source of income.

5. Study your Competition
Your customers are not your target audience alone. Each type of business faces competition in market today, be it the simplest. You need to keep an eye over your rivals in the market. Study carefully their product specifications, their strategies, and their weaknesses.
You will sell only if you’re better.

6. Research
Indians lay least emphasis on this significant aspect of entrepreneurship. Carrying out in-depth research about your product and its future potentials will help you gain in the future. Pioneering a change will bring all three horizons, name fame and money, together for you.

7. Adopting Customer Feedback
Social media provides a great platform to connect to our customers and gain their meaningful reviews. This customer feedback will guide you to better opportunities and hence success.

Pay heed to what your customers have to say about the loopholes and the drawbacks in your offering. Develop strategies to resolve their complaints and make your product better. Lend your ear for your own success.

Cater to your own needs by adopting the seven successful entrepreneurial strategies referred above.

Make way for yourself, Entrepreneur!
