We are currently living in the ‘tech age.’ Nearly everything that we do relies on the technology of some kind. Most people wouldn’t be able to live without it. When we relax we use our phones and watch television; when we work we use computers. The digital era has given people the opportunity to start their own businesses from the comfort of their homes. Commuting and working from an office is no longer needed. You don’t even have to touch the products that you are selling, anymore.


This article will tell you how you can benefit from the tech age and start your own business, with a view to achieving financial independence:



The first thing that you need to do when you are starting a company is to register it. If you don’t register your company, then you can get into a lot of trouble. One of the main reasons that registration is necessary is so that your taxes can be paid. According to the experts from Uniwide formations, company registrations can be arranged on your behalf by a registration company for as little as £15.99. By paying a company to register your business for you, you are able to focus on doing other things.



You will need a website, there’s no way around it. All businesses can benefit from having websites, even small locally owned ones. You have two options when it comes to starting a website. You can either create one using an internet template service or you can hire a web developer to create one for you? Template services are cheap and easy to work with, but your website’s template will probably be used by thousands of other businesses, meaning that it won’t be unique. Web developers charge more, but they create entirely unique websites and they offer support.

Online marketing is essential if you want your business to survive. The best thing about online marketing is that you can do it by yourself. With that said, if you are busy and can’t dedicate time to marketing, then you can hire a professional to do it for you. The most effective online marketing solutions currently are search engine optimisation, influencer marketing, content marketing, and social media marketing. Social media is a particularly effective method of marketing because it allows you to reach your business’s intended audience directly without intermediaries.



Who is your business’s audience? The internet gives you the tools to reach them, but first, you need to identify them. The best way to identify your audience is to research the service or product that you offer and then determine who is most likely to use it, which you can do by using analytical tools. In addition to using analytical tools, you can also use hashtags on social media to establish who is using hashtags relevant to your business. A marketing professional may be able to help you to determine who your business’s audience is if you are struggling.



Funding is also something that requires serious consideration, especially if you haven’t got the money to fund your start-up. There are several effective ways of acquiring the funds to run a business. The first is by using crowdsourcing platforms, which can be effective if you have a novel idea. Secondly, you can consider using an investor platform, whereby investors buy shares in your company in return for money. Finally, you could ask your loved ones to fund your business. This is the solution that is the least stressful. If you do borrow from loved ones, make sure that you pay them back on time. If you don’t pay them back then it could put a strain on your relationship with them.



If you want to build a large, strong business, then you need to find an accountant to work with. In your business’s early days, instead of hiring an accountant, you can just download accountancy software. As it grows, however, you will definitely benefit from having an actual accountant’s opinion and input. Accountants also function as financial and business advisors, making them very valuable. They can help you to make important decisions and can help to create strategies designed to further your business and achieve success.

In addition to being able to outsource your business’s accountancy needs, you can also outsource things like HR and customer service. If your business has just started it’s definitely much better financially to outsource. This is because outsourcing these departments is a lot cheaper than it is to hire full-time staff. Many of your outsourcing needs can also be automated, so you should definitely consider investing in quality software and outsourcing to automation agencies. Outsourcing will save you time and money. If you need full-time staff then you can hire them in the future, when your business has achieved some success.



How are you going to hire staff? If your business is an entirely online operation, then it’s highly likely that you can manage on your own for a while. When your business begins growing, however, then you can hire staff. The most effective way of hiring staff is to use an online hiring agency. Alternatively, you can make a post on social media or on a forum. If you need staff to work online, then forums are the best place to look. You only really need a job hiring platform if you are going to be hiring people to come in and work in a physical office.



Finally, make sure that you think through your networking strategies. Networking is how you meet other business professionals in your industry. If you don’t effectively network, then you won’t be able to make connections. The best way to network online is to use forums and platforms like LinkedIn. Networking is extremely straightforward and doesn’t take up a lot of time, especially when you do it online. You can also network at trade conventions, and seminars, and use social media.


If you want to start a business, then it’s never been easier than it is today.  Technology has made starting a business extremely simple and stress-free. It has even allowed people to start businesses from home, without needing an office or place to work from.
