Start-up in Centurion

Through years of experience and valuable lessons from our customers, we share 5 tips on starting a business in Centurion that will help your entrepreneurial endeavours flourish.

  1. Enter the market with energy

As a newcomer into the business market, you need to make yourself visible and active in order to grab the attention of potential customers. The Centurion business landscape is thriving, but it is easy to become lost in the noise unless you enter the market with a drive to succeed. Make sure that you utilise dynamic strategies that can give your business the upper hand in order to gain an advantage over your competitors. Do everything with passion!

  1. Take advantage of all the help you can get

The Centurion community is typically very supportive. Even a small bit of help can make a huge difference to your success, so don’t be afraid to ask for it. Pay close attention to different pieces of advice that are shared, especially from people who have experienced the journey you are on. Guidance, mentorship and partnerships can boost your business, helping to build a strong foundation and reputation for your brand. 

  1. Strategically select areas to advertise or market in

Make the effort to only advertise where relevant. Many companies make the mistake of frantically advertising without strategy or thought. Avoid overwhelming people with unnecessary information as they will simply switch off from your brand – it’s all about relevancy. You need to be selective of what you advertise, where you advertise and to whom you communicate with. Don’t be too traditional – make use of the many digital platforms focused in and around Centurion. 

  1. Choose quality over quantity

A thriving landscape is often a competitive landscape. Don’t give customers a reason to reject your brand based on quality – you usually only get one shot. Consider every aspect of your business’s operations and ensure that every department prioritises quality. Ensure your products and/or services are aligned with your customers’ expectations and make sure you wow them whenever you can.

  1. Invest in a self storage unit

There is usually nothing more important than cash flow when it comes to building your business and surviving the first stages of growth. Self storage has become an affordable and convenient solution for many businesses. The safety, security and accessibility of self storage make it a trusted space to store excess stock, files, collateral and equipment. Self storage also reduces expensive overheads typically spent on rent and leases are generally fairly flexible. Stor-Age Centurion, located in Samrand Business Park, offers a variety of different sized storage units, depending on your needs.
