No money for a startup investment? No problem!

Social Media- Social Media- Social Media
Did you know that F-Commerce (Facebook commerce) is very successful? Why does it work? It just works on the age old theory of word of mouth. If a friend recommends something you go for it without a second thought, this is not because you trust the product but you trust the friend’s judgement. There are thousands of businesses from Costume jewellery to Kids toys, Cupcakes to Party decorations which found great success on FCommerce. Harness the power of social media to get your business off the ground!

Doing a course relevant to what you are trying to do will build your confidence level as well as give you better credibility.
