on my channel I talk a lot about how to start and grow business and entrepreneurship in general and so a lot of the people who watch my videos are interested in doing exactly that but a lot of what I talk about has to do with using a computer and that's something that not everyone has access to so in today's video I'm gonna share with you how you can start your own business using just your cell phone so you that you can start a business even if you don't have access to a computer or you don't have a lot of resources yourself if you want to start your own business but one of the very first things that you'll need to do is of course decide what kind of business you want to start and you might be wondering what kinds of businesses you could start with just your cell phone well there are a lot of different opportunities because there are all sorts of businesses that you can run online these days but I came up with a few specific ideas that are definitely possible to do with just your cell phone and I made a separate video all about that it's called seven businesses you can start with your phone and I'll link it up in the cart and also down below in the description so that if you need an idea you can start there in this video though I'm gonna walk you through exactly what you need to do and how to do it with your phone in order to get your business off the ground up and running and making money oh and by the way what you need to do to start a business with your phone isn't really different from what you need to do if you were to start a business and any other sort of way you just have to do it in different ways okay so with that being said let's get on into it and talk about how to do this the very first thing you need to do to start a business with your phone is just to create a business plan you can of course do this in a lot of different ways whether you have a computer or not you can write your business plan on a note on your phone or you could just pull out a pen and paper and write your business plan down there now I have a different video about how to write a business plan so if you want a detailed guide for writing a plan for your business so that your business can be successful right from the beginning then you can go check that out but some of the basics are you need to create a plan for exactly what your business is going to sell how that product will help your customers and how you're going to mark and deliver that product to your customers you need to have those basic bases like covered if you want your business to be a profitable venture once you've created a tentative plan for your business the next step is to do some market research the whole point of market research is to figure out if there is a demand for your product you want to make sure that people actually want your product before you go to the work to make it and try to market it now this is something that you can absolutely do on your phone because most market research these days is done on the internet or else with individual people your phone is the device that you can use to access the internet and access social media which is a great place to do some market research and it's also obviously a device that you can use to connect with other people you can connect with people on social media give people a call have a chat with people via text there's all sorts of different ways that you can connect with prospective customers in order to do this market research first you have to find prospective customers and then you need to talk to them and figure out if they would be interested in your product and interested in paying money for it typically the best and easiest way to find people is with social media so you could either find people who are in a Facebook group or you could find people who are all following a particular business or influencer online you want to find a group of people that based on who they're following or what group they're in leads you to believe that they might be interested in your product so for example if you wanted to provide health coaching services to a certain demographic so for example two women over 50 then you would want to find Facebook groups about being healthy or losing weight topics like that that were full of women of that demographic or you could find an influencer or brand that targets a similar demographic and helps with a similar sort of concern and you could start interacting with some of their followers in the comments on their social media posts once you find these prospective customers then you need to connect with them and get some more information from them you can either do this by putting a survey out there and offering an incentive for people to complete the survey or you can ask them to hop on a 15 minute Skype call with you so that you can ask them some more questions once you've completed your market research and you're confident that there is a demand for your product then you'll be ready to move on to the next step of the process and actually develop the product now depending on what type of business you're starting and what you're going to sell this process could look like a lot of different things for example if you were a health coach and maybe you just need to outline your coaching plan or on the other hand if you are going to be selling a physical product then maybe you need to actually have the physical product created or find a source that you can get the physical product from on the other hand if you're going to create a digital product then you might need to film videos for your digital product or have your digital product designed by a graphic designer now as you're developing your product keep in mind that if you want to be able to run this business from your phone then the product that you create will need to be something that can be delivered from your phone so for example you could provide consulting services from your phone by video chatting with your clients or by providing services via email or you could send a digital product over the Internet using your phone and selling a physical product isn't out of the question either you can use your phone to connect with a fulfillment company that could store and ship that physical product to your customers for you as for how to actually create the product there are some types of products that you could create using your phone itself for example you could make an online course by filming videos with your phone and then uploading them to an online course platform such as teachable or you could outsource the creation or part of the creation of your digital product to some else for example you could have a graphic designer create the PDFs for your product you also could write content on your phone you could write an e-book or you could write the content for the PDFs for your course beyond that as I already mentioned you could provide consulting services in which case you could outline your coaching program or your consulting program on a note on your phone or you can use your phone to contact all sorts of people who you can outsource aspects of product crea
Thanks for your comment Kraig Sakoda, have a nice day.

hey now it's anthony with a a professional services and before we start this video go ahead and join the new wave facebook group all right let's get right into it let's talk about how to start your business what i mean how to start your business i'm talking about those llc's those licenses uh bank accounts all that stuff you're gonna need to be an official business now the first thing you got to have is you got to get your ein number this is how the irs identifies your business okay so you simply go to irs.gov i'm gonna say it again irs.gov if you type in irs if you search it it's gonna have a lot of stuff you know a lot of different companies that are trying to get money to help you start your llc's they're legit but they're going to charge you for everything and if you want to save a little money you want to go directly to irs.gov if you don't see gov at the end of it it's not a government entity so you want to use irs.gov you go to irs.gov and you simply go to ein you go ahead and you submit your application now for the most part most of us in this detailing business we're going to probably want to choose limited liability company that's what you want to go with and right there when you press that it explains to you what a limited liability company is i like the limited liability company option because it allows you to separate the business from yourself your personal and your business remains separate this should be your first step in starting your business you're gonna need your ein number because when you get your bank accounts when you file with the state and when you also file your taxes you're gonna need that ein number if you want to get a business loan they're going to ask you for your ein number it's very important a lot of people are out here calling themselves a mobile detailing business but they don't have the proper paperwork you may get by with it and you may not and if you don't get by with it it's going to cost you dearly so smarten up it doesn't cost you anything to go to irs.gov and get your ein number it's totally free now the next thing you should do is you should go to your secretary of state to register business with your state now some states are different it's different from state to state some don't require you to register most do the price is going to vary like the state of tennessee is 300 but the state of mississippi is 50 so each state is going to be different but you're either going to have to do this at your department of revenue or your secretary of state which is pretty much the same thing alright so to register with your state just simply go to google search sos which stands for secretary of state and just type the abbreviation of your state for example my stage mississippi so sos ms and as you can see my secretary of state pops up now this also ends in dot gov most government website entities were ended dot gov i do understand some end in u.s but the majority of them that i've seen ending.gov if you're not sure call your state if you're not sure call your secretary of state by phone and ask them what's their website address so you can know that you're on the right site because there are imitation sites out there that will take your money to register with the secretary of state does cost in each state it's different prices in each state and as you can see uh it asked me would i be doing llc do i have an ein how many people that i employ they also give you information on things that you're going to need to start your business which is pretty cool so if you notice everything ties back into each other if you notice in the beginning with the irs.gov for your ein now you're at the state and they're asking you do you have an ein because once you start to fill out the application it's going to require you to have an ein to attach that to your llc for the state most platforms will require you to register pretty much set up a login id and password and the process is simple but you're pretty much answering questions that you should know things such as your business address your business name ein number once you have that social security number things of that sort uh once you complete it and everything's a goal and you pay your money you get all the information that you need right then and there you can just download it directly to your computer or phone the next step is to get your privileged license you're already dead with the federal then you dealt with the state and now you have to deal with your local government which is going to be your city or county you go to your local courthouse and you're going to have to apply for your privileged license the privileged license is what you're gonna need to do business in that city or county uh that's more for like legal reasons so if you're out watching somebody's car and code enforcement runs up on you and hey do you have your privileged license and you have all this information and let me tell you this you're gonna also need your ein number to get your privileged license so all this stuff ties into each other all right thanks for watching like share subscribe and shouts out to the new wave peace you
