Learn Now How To Build Your Own Startup with The Lean LaunchPad by Steve Blank | Entrepreneurship for Young Dreamers | Scoop.it

Robin Good: The Lean LaunchPad is a free online course taught by Steve Blank and based on the course by the same name that he teaches at Stanford, Berkeley, Columbia, Caltech and for the National Science Foundation.

 

In his words: "It is the foundation every entrepreneur should have to build a successful startup."

 

"Steve Blank is a retired serial entrepreneur-turned-educator who is changing how startups are built and how entrepreneurship is being taught. He created the Customer Development methodology that launched the lean startup movement, and wrote about the process in his first book, The Four Steps to the Epiphany. His second book, The Startup Owner's Manual, is a step-by-step guide to building a successful company."

 

The course expected average completion time is estimated in two to four weeks.

 

Free to enroll into. (Pay with a tweet)

Without A Strategy, There Is No ROI

Without A Strategy, There Is No ROI | Entrepreneurship for Young Dreamers | Scoop.it

The bottom line – when you create channels and get to strategy later, your site is more likely to fail.

"By giving yourself no real direction or the accountability of a strategy, your channel has a high probability of dying a very public death, joined possibly by a hallow Twitter egg, months or years of inactivity, and, oh yeah, the company name."

 

Social media channels cannot be started as tests. Even though there is a low barrier of entry to create these channels, they are still living, breathing examples of your company and its reputation. 

Clear objectives and measureable goals must be outlined from the onset.

 

Without a strategy, there can be no ROI.  

Hence, the return must be defined through objectives and ultimately development of strategy.

 

Looking at the following 5W’s + How…

 

Who: Identify and target the people you are trying to reach

What: Learn what are they saying and what is important to them.

When: Determine how often are they engaging and when to engage in real-time and at the right time.

Where: Discover the networks, communities, and technologies that facilitate conversations as you design a “build and/or join” approach.

Why: Define why we should engage, why customers will value our engagement, and why this makes business sense for us based on our objectives and goals.

How: Develop a strategy that communicates how you will add value to the community, the bottom line, and the technologies and channels that will enable engagement and desired outcomes.

Starting your own business can be difficult, but it can also be highly rewarding.

For many people, it’s a dream that is never realised, but for a lucky few, it’s a reality.

 

The freedom of being your own boss can be one of the best things about being self-employed.

For many, the thought of managing your own workload without being under the watchful eye of an employer is very appealing.

 

Your own business can also give you the opportunity to purse something that you’re really passionate about. It’s often said that if you can find something which you enjoy doing, you never have to work a day in your life. Turning a hobby or an interest into a profitable business can give you immense satisfaction.

If you run your business well, the rewards can be huge.

 

If you’ve considered going it alone and pursuing your dreams, take a look at this Infographic from the team at XLN BusinessServices,  which is full of useful information about how to approach starting your own business.

The Spark in the Eye - Inês Santos Silva

"Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."
