How long will it take to build a business in digital marketing, IT, and Web starting from scratch?Aug 13, 2018
Welcome to this video. I'm Tom Koster, and currently I'm in France, in the South of France. It's the last day of our vacation, and there are some palm trees here near the beach. And today I want to talk to you about what it takes to build a business in digital marketing, IT, and web, starting from scratch. And how long it will take.
So, the question is how long will it take to build a business in digital marketing, IT, and Web? And if you hear some noises from the background, there are some people here standing with their caravans. Moms and dads with little children. But let's get back to the topic, how long will it take? And the honest answer is it depends. It depends on the expertise you have. It depends on your network. It depends on the amount of action that you take. And it can take a year, it can take two years, three years. In my opinion it takes at least two to three years to build a solid business if you start from scratch.
Now, if you already have a network, if you already have people who can endorse you, who will bring you your first clients. If you already have people who will help you with generating business, it might go faster. But if you start from scratch, you have no network, you don't know what to do, then you need at least two to three years to build a solid business. Is it enough to do it full time? Also, that depends, but probably not.
So, if you're starting just from scratch ...
Hello, hello. People want to be in the video, that's someone else also in the video. Hi, hi. Yeah, if you want to be on it, that's fine. There's a little bit of Moonshine.
But if you want to start from scratch, it depends on how your business is doing, and how your networking is. And how much action you take. So if you take massive action, you might grow your business faster. But honestly, if you start from scratch with no network, no expertise, do it on the side. Just have a normal job bringing in steady income, and it's more important to do it stably than to do it fast, crash and burn.
So, the answer on how long or how short does it take to grow the business, it all depends on your expertise, on your level of action, on your network.
That's it for now, bye bye.
