Should you start a new business or buy one?

May 07, 2015

Starting a business often means starting everything from scratch, finding a good business idea, a suitable name and turning that idea into something viable and hopefully profitable. Here are a few pointers to help you make the decision.


Buying an existing business

When buying an existing business, someone else has already done the groundwork. You can choose to buy a standalone business and improve it with added skills, added drive or simply a fresh perspective.


Buying a franchise

This tends to be a safe choice. You are buying into a tried and tested business, often an established brand and retain the benefits of being your own boss. The risks are obviously a lot lower than starting a business from scratch, but this comes at a cost. The most profitable and safest the option, the more expensive the franchise will be.


Starting an online business

Starting costs of an online business are considerably less than the ones of a bricks & mortar one, with often greater ROI. No wonder why the number of businesses ran from a PC or laptop has grown so much in recent years.


Starting an offline business

Even when starting an offline business, it is essential to have an online presence, whether you consider selling online or not. People need to be able to find you when searching online. Ensure you get listed in local directories and have a website that has all your contact details. The outgoings of such business are important, but may well be worth it if you have the right idea in the right location.
