When I started up altspace in 2016 I was faced with the universal challenge of a startup, to overcome a lack of awareness and interest. To counter this I split my days and weeks into segments and committed my efforts to meeting new contacts, educating myself and finding my feet in the local community. In short I had a lot of time on my hands.
If you have a similar challenge now then maybe my abridged ‘lockdown’ task list might help you find some inspiration.
|– Organising events in the space||– Participate in virtual meetings|
|– Networking||– Start a dialogue with new people on social media|
|– Handing out flyers||– Take photos and create interesting content|
|– Meeting my neighbours and the wider community||– Plan future events to engage in with local community|
|– Studying||– Take inspiration from others in business|
|– Operating another business and doing contract work||– Think of complimentary services and means to diversify offering|
|– Volunteering||– Reach out to friends and colleagues. Be a positive influence.|
