There are but a few critical pieces needed to create a successful start-up business today.  In this example, you’ll see that it doesn’t take much and that it all stems from a simple GREAT idea that you can expand on and yet still have fun at the same time.

Here’s five important pieces of the puzzle for a successful start-up business.

#1 – You’ll need a niche, a group, or a target of people or prospects that need your product, tool, or service.

#2 – You need to be economically competitive, a price people won’t think twice about, they are sold on the product.

#3 – You’ll need to be able to tap into their emotional buying processes and signals using text, audio, and visual.

#4 – A great yet simple page on the web to access a globe of potential prospects and customers.
