2) Why should I introduce this product into a market?

You must know why you’re going to launch your product into market. If you don’t know about this, that really means your product isn’t unique and isn’t able to meet requirements of the market.

3) What is the end goal of your business?

If you don’t know a goal or a target that you set for you business, then it’s gonna result in failure. You must have a target set up for your business besides the profit that you must reach within certain time.

Pricing is a very important aspect of an business. The pricing of the product must be like that it goes in the favor of customers with a particular marginal profit of yours as customers want the product at least amount. You can opt for sales maximization or profit maximization depending upon the nature of your product.

    It took me a year to start my own business. I researched and planned everything out and finally decided to take the leap. It’s been a slow process getting my brand out there, but I trust it will start to take in the future.

    Really true to seek answers to these questions before setting up. Rather we need to jot down answers & raise a cost benefit analysis before heading
