by AmaruCity India List Your Business

Just because your family loves the sandwiches you make at home doesn't mean you should run to open a store to sell them. It would help if you considered many aspects before trying your luck as an entrepreneur.

Many reasons businesses fail include poor market fit, lack of marketing knowledge, financial problems, and lack of a well-defined plan or how the money will be made. Choosing the suitable business model for your product or service, you will add business listing that makes money while fulfilling a need and providing value to your customers.

What is a business model?

A business model is a plan that describes how your company will make money. But there is much more to it than simply stating how much you will charge for your product. Your business plan should answer these questions:

• Who is your target audience?

• How will you generate interest in your products and your brands?

• How will you continue to add value to keep customers engaged?

• How much will it cost you to supply your products?

The answers to these questions will define the model you will use to create and deliver value to your customers while also providing value to your company. A good business model can enable new companies to attract investors, recruit talented employees, and energize current management and staff.

But business models are not just for startups. Established companies use business models to keep up with or anticipate ever-changing market trends.

Different types of business models

Many different business models can be used for a wide variety of businesses. This means that you do not need to create your model from scratch. Someone else already took care of most of the work for you. Please choose the one that best suits your business and adapt it to your needs.

• Franchises

In this model, an established company gives you access to their proprietary business model with the processes, products, trademarks, and names that made them successful. You are typically charged an upfront fee and then have to pay royalties to continue profiting from the franchise name and products.

• Manufacturing

Manufacturers make products at their plants from raw materials. They sell their products directly to consumers or other businesses to sell to their customers. Any company that wholesales its products to other companies uses the manufacturing business model.

• Crowdsourcing

The term "crowdsourcing ", translated as "distributed open collaboration", combines the collective with outsourcing. In this model, individuals or organizations look to outside participants to support them with ideas, microtasks, voting, problem-solving, and finances. Crowdsourcing often uses websites to attract visitors who can accept tasks, submit ideas and solve problems to obtain a particular result.

• Advertising

This model is used by companies that make money by selling advertising space or time. Media organizations use an advertising business model to provide free content to consumers.

• Affiliate marketing

Individuals or companies using this model can earn money from commissions if they refer their online visitors to the products or services of a partner orally. Links on the site encourage visitors to purchase the products, and the affiliate receives a commission for each sale referred.

• Merchant/physical store

This is the model most companies used until the dot.com explosion of the 1990s. Retailers, wholesalers, and manufacturers sell their products through a brick-and-mortar store or an office they own or rent.
