My signage business started when I decided to get a business license for my sign company. The license required me to install a sign in front of each office and any of my sign company employees would be required to help with the sign. When I got my license, I was shocked by how much it cost and had to determine if this type of sign business was going to be an economic investment for me.
The next step I took to determine if the signage business would work was to go online and do some research on the signs. I found that there were many different types of signs that you could purchase and I began looking at them. The variety of signs you can purchase is vast and you are sure to find the right sign for your business.
After spending money on the signs I realized that this was an opportunity to make a lot of money. I decided to see how much money I could spend in a month and figured out what the monthly profit from the signage business would be. I ended up making several thousand dollars in a month and it gave me motivation to keep doing my signage business.
Once I had this information, I looked into setting up the business. It was fairly easy to set up and make sure that I knew exactly what was needed. In order to make sure that I had the sign businesses open everyday I went to the store and purchased the supplies needed to keep it open on a daily basis.
The only thing I needed to purchase in order to get started was a phone line and web site. Once I purchased my web site, I made sure that I started an account with PayPal. This way I would be able to accept credit card payments online and buy the sign parts.
I prepared a small business plan and listed all of the costs involved with the business. I looked at what the monthly profit would be, whatI could afford each month and whether or not I would need to spend more money later on. I also talked to my lawyer about what I could legally charge for a sign. He told me that he didn’t think that the cost would be a problem and I made sure that I would be able to handle all of the costs without having to borrow any money.
When it came time to set up the Internet sign company, I called all of the local businesses that I was familiar with. I told them about my sign business and asked if they would consider helping me. They were very helpful and gave me recommendations of businesses that I should contact. After contacting all of the businesses I was very happy with the number of businesses that helped me.
After setting up the sign business I continued to add new sign companies that I knew. Since I was in such a hurry to get started, I was able to set up as many businesses as I wanted. My sign business grew rapidly and I have been able to support myself working a part time job now as well.
