Choose The Location Of The Business
After choosing the name of your company, another important decision you could take next is the place of your business.
To find locations for your business you could go to the classified ads in the newspaper or on the Internet, or go through the areas where you would like your business to be located (for example, cities, where similar enterprises exist,), to see if you find local or offices for sale or rent.
And then, to choose the right location, you must take into account different factors such as the influx of public in the area, the visibility of the premises, access roads, competition, costs, etc.

To determine your target audience, you must first segment the total market that exists for your product or service, in different homogeneous markets composed of consumers with similar characteristics, taking into account different variables such as location, age range, socioeconomic level, etc.
And then, choose one of the resulting markets that are more attractive to enter taking into account your ability, knowledge, and experience, but also making sure that it is not so small to the point of not being profitable, or so vast to the end of not being able to specialize at.
Analysis Of The Target Audience
Once you have determined your target audience, you must analyze it so that you can get to know it better, and thus design the product that best suits your preferences, as well as formulate other strategies that may have better results in it.

And then, collect this information, for example, through surveys where you ask questions that allow you to obtain the required information, or visiting the places where you used to make your purchases to observe their behavior.
