My name is Warren and welcome to this awesome video around a topic that I am super stoked to make a video about something that’s, quite personal, quite close to my heart.
Last year I finished studying marketing, and this year I’ve gone after some of my very own social media and digital marketing agency, and it was quite a quite a crazy process thinking what on earth I wanted to do with my life, how I Could find a business to start and what I could actually start.
So we’re, going to go through a couple of the steps in the tips that I use in order to get myself out of running before that. I just want to give a bit of a background to Warren Bryce. As a little kid I like to think of myself as quite a creative person, quite a creative thinker.
I remember growing up. I always used to come up with these crazy and weird ideas, and these things that I thought I could invent that I could solve a problem, so I would say my sense of entrepreneurship developed from a very young age.
I am 100 % a right brained person fast forward a couple of years. My creativity is booming. I’m growing. I’m developing. I get to the end of my course and I start to think to myself. Lauren. What on earth are you going to do it kind of was a very stressful situation? Who doesn & # 39? T teach you about how you can start your own business, so I don & # 39.
T really know what to expect. I hadn’t had any experience in starting my own business. Yes, I had thought up all these ideas, but this is something that was totally new but very exciting. So the tips that I speak about are going to link directly to my experience in starting a social media agency and what I used to, I guess get started.
The first tip is to be really involved or interested in a particular industry. The digital space was something that I am really interested in. I was pushing out content on a frequent basis and I really had an understanding of what was going on.
If you want to be running a business, you need to make sure that you’re invested in that for the right reasons, which is for personal satisfaction, not from a monetary point of view. Opinions may differ.
The second step is to find a gap in the market now South Africa, to give you an idea is so far behind the rest of the world when it comes to online marketing, social media and the digital internet connection, we are getting better, but comparing it to A lot of other countries, we are quite a few years behind the way in which the rest of the world is moving.
It’s important to advertise online that you can easily connect with your customer. However, in South Africa, because we’re, so behind the rest of the world, this is a bit of a problem. Often you find there’s, a lot of companies, very traditional companies who have been stuck in their methods for years and years and years, and they aren’t really prepared to explore the whole digital route because it’s.
Something that is very different, this lists quite a big gap. On the one side you have the Internet and the digital space, which is super important and the other hand you have these businesses that aren’t pays to move across to those quite a big gap in the market.
Now the third step is to solve a problem. How can you come up with a business, a product or service that really appeals to those people and appeals to the gap that you have identified? This, for me, is the most exciting thing, because this is really where my creativity thrives, and this is what I love doing.
I’m, not thinking out of the box, no matter what industry you are in, or no matter where your interests lie. There’s, most probably a problem that can be solved and it is up to you, the creative entrepreneur and a business person to come up with the solution to solve that problem, and that is why I started a social media agency.
