After securing your business registration, permits and other legal documents to run your business, it’s tempting to just sit, back and relax for a while. But you can’t relax. Not just yet. You still have a checklist of things to prepare to officially launch your business. Did you already prepare these four things below?
1. Business card
A business card is a necessary tool to represent yourself especially in the setting up period. Check the quality of paper of layout you’ll be using because this is an opportunity to introduce your company’s personality. Follow a standard template in terms of design. You can either go for a simple minimalist design or a template that allows for more information to promote your company.
- logo – Make sure to put your company logo for branding
- photo – Your own photo to make it customized
- contact details and address – This includes company name, address and contact numbers
url/website/email Don’t forget to put your website (URL) and email address
2. Letter of announcement
A letter of announcement helps in letting people know about the formal opening of your company. When making one, make sure it’s direct and concise. Write a brief introduction with an appreciative greeting. To make it more effective, mention your business objectives and intentions to take the company forward.
3. Company Profile
Leaflets are a great way to explain what your company/ business is about and what services you offer. Prepare materials which can be provided instantly so you can take advantage of business opportunities.
- Things you can include in company profile:
- description of the company / nature of business
- pictures/ company images
- hiring announcement
- contact details (email)
4. Sales Presentation
It’s always better have a sales presentation and company profile at hand. It helps to clearly state your type of business, the main points you want to cover and what problems you intend to solve. Present your company profile in a way that potential business partners will clearly understand what your business is all about.
Ideally, you should combine a sales presentation and company profile in one file.
- This include elements such as:
- Title cover
- table of contents
- company introduction
- products and/or services
- price list
- contact information
