Identifying prime locations for your start up

identifying locationIt doesn’t matter what kind of business it is, if it’s in the wrong place, achieving success is going to be more difficult, if not impossible. Your business location is more than just the place where you run your operations, it is also where you’re going to build your reputation and your brand. Choosing where to set up your small business is one of the most important decisions you will make, and while you can get more than just one shot, albeit costly, at it, you really want to get it right the first time.

What are the different considerations when choosing a location for your business? There’s the price, demographics, your suppliers, as well as your budget for this project. The basics also need to be well-planned, such as parking space, accessibility, and visibility in the neighbourhood. But wait! There’s more.

Safety – consider the reputation of the area and the kind of business you’re putting up. Do they match? If an area also has a high crime rate, would you or your employees feel safe going to and fro? Make sure to check these things before making any decisions.

Competition – Do the existing businesses surrounding the location you’re looking at complement yours or compete with it? Don’t forget, your business is going to be the new place in town, and if there’s already an established competition around, it might spell trouble for your sales and make it harder for you to acquire customers.

Local restrictions – You need to find out whether the kind of business you’re setting up will be allowed to operate there. Your local planning agency should be able to tell you how property is zoned in that specific area, and whether your business will be violating any of the zoning regulations they have in place.

The bottomline is, prior research (and a comprehensive one at that) is not only necessary but essential when choosing a business location. Getting the location wrong can be extremely costly, and this is something you can’t afford to happen. Consider consulting other business owners in the area, and using all resources available to you in order to make the best choice, because when it comes to putting up your own business and choosing where it will stand, you need all the help you can get.
