Unknown threats

The wisest man knows that he doesn’t know anything. That’s true for the best businessmen readying their firm for a new market. You’ll be facing new competitors, dealing with a different customer base and you’ll need to learn quickly because time is money of course. If your firm are enjoying strong sales and has great brand awareness, you have the foundations for this venture.

Discipline

A disciplined approach is the key to success when moving into a new market. You’ll need to make the appropriate level of investment but before you do that, you’ll need to know a bit more about what you’re getting into so thorough market research is absolutely vital.

Entry points

If you’ve really committed to this project, you’ll have done your homework and identified several entry points into the market. Don’t try and run before you can walk as there’s no need to enter the market in a major way. You’re best play would be to obtain a small chunk of the market first so you can assess customer needs. Set a clear timeframe at this point and plan your objectives carefully as you’ll need to be able to plot your progress in this new unchartered territory you will find yourself in. You’ll also need to make sure that your plans allow for future growth but don’t necessarily rely on this. Never forget that you’re the new fish in this pond and without any prior knowledge of the way things are, you should be very cautious.
