Article by Chelsea Lamb - Our Guest Newsletter Contributor

Your savings account balance is lower than you’d like - yet you’ve been daydreaming about launching your own business for as long as you can remember, and you don’t want to keep putting off your plans. But if you’re truly committed, launching a business on a small budget is absolutely possible.Here’s how to fix your credit score for loan applications, get started with social media marketing, and more!

Map Out Your Plans


Don’t dive into entrepreneurship blindly - instead, carefully define your plans so that you can identify opportunities to cut costs.


    You only need minimal cash to build a business centered around one of these products or services.


    By creating a strict budget, you can keep your spending in check.

If you can’t tackle your business launch to-do list on your own, hire contractors rather than employees to save

Obtain the Funding You Need


Even if you’re short on personal capital, you can look to other funding sources.


    Research business grants that you might qualify for, and start sending out applications.

    Do you plan to apply for loans? First, make sure your credit score is high enough.

    If grants or loans aren’t a good fit for your needs, consider seeking out business investors.

    Get your family and friends invested in your plans through crowdfunding!


Business Promotion on a Budget


The internet has opened up countless low-cost - and free - marketing channels for new business owners.


    Create social media accounts for your business - it won’t cost a penny!

    Purchase a domain name and build a website for your company.

    Publish a company blog on your website for content marketing purposes.


Anyone with a strong work ethic and a flair for customer service can become an entrepreneur - regardless of the amount of cash you have on hand. There are plenty of avenues to business ownership, even if you’re on a budget. With these tips, you’ll be prepared to increase your credit score, apply for grants, and advertise your business without spending big.
