Most people leave small towns for big ones to earn money. They are right if they seek to work in a large stable company, which are not available in the province. But small towns provide ample opportunities for earning money for those who want to do business.
Take advantage of the lagging behind your city metropolitan areas. You probably do not have any necessary shops, service enterprises, cafes, restaurants. Think about what your city needs. It is easier to choose a business idea that will work in a small town than in a metropolis.
Draw up a business plan for your potential venture and calculate the costs involved. It's good if you have funds to invest in your business. If they are not there or not enough, then you will have to either look for an investor or think about a less expensive business.
To find an investor, you need a well-written business plan. When compiling it, the main emphasis will need to be made on the need for your future business in your city and on its quick payback. You can directly search for an investor through friends, the Internet, forums for start-up entrepreneurs (they usually take place in large cities, but anyone can find an investor there).
Once you have drawn up a business plan and received the necessary funds, take action. The sooner you start working, the sooner your business will pay off and the sooner you can make money. To do this, first of all, register with the local tax office as an individual entrepreneur, since the business must be registered.
Start an advertising campaign. The specificity of small towns lies in the fact that large-scale and expensive advertising campaigns are almost never required, because information spreads quickly. However, you will need to put up a colorful sign on the site of your prospective business, indicating its imminent opening, as well as advertise in the local media.
Rent the necessary space and hire workers. At first, you should limit yourself to their minimum number so as not to pay salaries to those who are not properly loaded. Also consider renting equipment and furniture as it is cheaper than buying it. Reducing costs at the initial stage of starting a business will help you make money on it faster.
