Write a guest article about how to succeed as an entrepreneur in an unsexy industry?
Okay Virgin Magazine, Rune’s on it. Fantastic Services’ Co-Founder and CEO Rune Sovndahl knows an awful lot about turning a start-up business in an industry as – theoretically – dirty as domestic services into a success.
So if you’re just beginning a new business venture in a sector not traditionally known for its glamour, this article might just be worth a read.
With a tagline like “Inspiration, innovation and advice“, and an entrepreneur as justifiably famous as Richard Branson as its CEO, it’s no surprise that the Virgin Magazine website’s “Entrepreneur” section is such a good source of tips and tricks for prospective business leaders.
For Rune to be asked to contribute the lessons he’s learned trying to grow a business in an “unsexy” industry was a signal honour for the Fantastic Services CEO.
Tips and Tricks For Entrepreneurial Success
Rune’s advice is equally good for most start-up businesses, but it’ll be of particular use to you if your new company is in a sector of the market that’s traditionally seen as mundane or unglamorous.
Some of the topics you might find of interest are:
- Sell your brand – just because your industry isn’t one known for being light-hearted or fun, it doesn’t mean that your brand can’t play with its marketing materials.
- Do your research – learn what your customer wants and how to communicate with them (this is such a vital business tip that you can’t really leave it out).
- Bring change to your industry – it’s no good just doing what everybody else does. By promoting change you’ll be making yourself relevant.
- Tell your story – this isn’t just about your brand. It’s about trying to connect with your audience, which is equally worthwhile no matter your industry.
That’s only a brief overview of course! To get more tips for entrepreneurs, and see what other pearls of wisdom Rune’s gained along the way – turning Fantastic Services into a £28 million turnover business last year – you should check out the article for yourself…
