5 Ways To 'DIY' With Your Business

Businesses starting out in the 21st century face the unique task of competing with the big companies without having the big monetary backing. A company succeeds based on how it develops, how it reaches people and how it can take any data, successful or not, and use it to increase productivity. There are, however, ways of looking like a million dollars for free. The do it yourself approach is fast growing and is a superb way of taking control over the different areas of your business. 

Business Planning 

Starting with the basics by creating a plan helps to iron out the kinks in your business approach. Using a free business model can be used to map out how you will get from an idea to a fully-functioning business. Then following on from that, you can use the same format to grow the company by exploring more ideas and projects. The simplicity of creating a model is almost like a step by step guide to a successful business. 


Building a website can be sourced out to professionals, and has been the practical choice for many years. The coding that goes into a website is something of a foreign language to most - however, with technology the way it is today, the ease of creating and managing your website is at your fingertips. With tutorials available online, nothing is out of reach. Most DIY websites have a similar look to them, which may let yours sink in the background, so make sure the content stands out. The familiarity, however, can put the user at ease; they know how to navigate your website, and you can use that to optimize their experience. 


Data is the lifeblood of businesses; it ensures that targets are being met, that numbers are rising rather than declining and that profits are being managed. By using online database software, all your numbers are in one place, and you can organize them in a way that makes sense to you. Online tools have the benefit of online tutorials and often have a person on standby to help - they get their business by ensuring that their software is as easy to use as possible. 

Get Reading 

As old-fashioned as it sounds, there are many books written about business management that are worth the read. By schooling yourself in the business industry, you give yourself an edge over competitors. There is a reason why students study business management or marketing. It’s an art in itself, and the best way to becoming truly skilled in the area you have chosen is to become the authority on it. 

Social Media 

Never doubt the power of social media - it might seem like it’s taking up all your time, and you’re posting all the time, but the reach that you can achieve with a well-placed tweet can be ten times that of a business card or a website. Social media should always point people back to your website to drive that revenue.
