Planting Utah Families and Businesses on Solid Ground

Call for a free consultation


It’s no secret that Utah has a huge start-up culture. Unique to the Utah and Salt Lake Valleys, more and more individuals are choosing to forego the typical office environment and attempting to open their own businesses. There’s a reason that they call Utah Valley “Silicon Slopes”. It’s the new Silicon Valley. With such a saturated startup culture, it can be hard to find success, since there are so many people starting up their own businesses. There’s a huge chance that someone else has already started a business similar to the idea that you have. So how do you become successful in such a competitive market?

Management Team

It should come as no surprise most investors look care most about who will be running the company.  If your start-up company is expected to need large amounts of capital from angel investors or venture funds, it is important that you hitch your wagon to someone with experience, drive, and vision.  Professional investors know that having the right person at the reigns can make all the difference.

Quality product

The second step to starting a business is to have a product that consumers want. If it’s a product that a lot of people are selling, you’ll have to find a way to make what you’re offering more appealing than what anyone else is selling. As you gain success, you’ll be known for the quality you produce, and that starts with the product or service you choose to sell. If you sell something of low quality, you won’t have repeat customers and you’ll have poor brand loyalty.

Setting a price

Setting a price is hard. You obviously need to make a profit off of what you’re selling. But if you price your products too high, no one will buy them. Get to know your competitors and what they’re charging for similar products and services. One strategy is to price yourself pretty similarly to your competitors. Consumers are always looking for a good deal, so before purchasing a product they tend to shop around to see if they can find something similar for a smaller price. This is something to keep in mind when deciding what to charge for your products.

Learn how to market yourself effectively

If you’re not promoting your new business, the chances of you succeeding are slim. In an area with less startups, it’s easier to build up a hype for a new startup business. But when you live in Utah, you have to use marketing to set yourself apart from your competitors. Social Media Marketing is quickly becoming one of the most influential marketing strategies you can invest in. Consider setting up some Influencer marketing campaigns to get potential clients excited about the release of your products before you even start selling. This will ensure that you have sales from the very first day you open your doors.
