    KEYS will place qualified applicants into Kimco shopping centers with one year of free rent and additional benefits such as affordable property charges to minimize initial overhead; access to personal Kimco retail business counselors; a flexible four-year lease option after the first year; as well as access to shop space in established retail centers.

    The KEYS program seeks entrepreneurs who plan to open their first store, restaurant, or other concept (but not franchise companies), who have adequate funding for the venture, a written Business Plan with detailed business goals and who have the ability to articulate their plan for success in an interview. A certificate, endorsement, or letter of completion verifying entrepreneurial classes completed from an SBA sponsored business association, college, university or appropriate training organization is encouraged, but not required.

    Some people think becoming an entrepreneur is so difficult. They often think that to be an entrepreneur, money is the main factor. Actually, there is something else such as mental preparation that plays an important role.

    Some people choose to be entrepreneurs because they do not want to suffer tight competition in the workforce, to have the desire for unlimited earnings, to have the freedom to determine their own destiny, and to be more independent or to have extra satisfaction on their personal achievement.

    In the early stages of becoming entrepreneurs, however, people should realize that their income can be less than before, no more company allowances. Not mentioning that they have to work harder and longer hours, with the responsibility of employing their workers.

    Moreover, they should cope with critics from their environment about how stupid they are for letting go such a good job with good payments and benefits.

    People should have more than one income source, but by being entrepreneurs, they are working for themselves, and they alone will determine how much they want to earn and how.

    Tips for new entrepreneurs:
    Start with a low working capital, so people can minimize their potential loss that may occur.
    The other advantage is to train to survive in the new business with minimum facilities.
    Be flexible; entrepreneurs should revise their business concept with current trends and economical conditions.
    It is recommended to have a mentor who can share knowledge and give advises on critical points.
    Start with your hobbies.
    By doing so, hopefully they can cope with the frustration and do not give up when they have to deal with difficulties.
    Sometimes it is a good idea to do a completely new business idea that might bring less competitors.

    Starting a new business needs capital. It is a safe way to use their own savings, because they do not have to pay interests or risk their assets when taking business loans from a local bank.

    Avoiding interests should be considered since it is hard for a new business to gain profits during its first months of operation. It can take their breath away to pay high interests.

    For people with a strong network, they can look for partners to cooperate with, so they also can share the capital.

    Having a business does not mean that people will earn profits right away. Entrepreneurs should think about getting loyal customers and give them competitive services.

    After a business has been developed, entrepreneurs might need employees. it is important to put honesty as the first criteria. It is a fact that honest people become rare nowadays, and you do not want to be cheated by your employees.

    Last but not least, entrepreneurs should understand that running a business is a process. There will be some critical moments before they can earn a stable profit.

    A person with his own business enjoys more financial independence and greater control on his financial status. But to succeed in any venture, it is important for anyone to visualize first his goals, business structure to follow, and other related details before proceeding to his business. Three Basic Types of Business Entities

    The first thing an entrepreneur should decide is what type of business entity he wants to adopt before he starts the application for Singapore business registration.

    Is it sole proprietorship in which he would be the only owner and will enjoy full control? Is it partnership in which he can have up to 20 business partners which means more funding? Or is it private limited company (or corporation) in which his business will enjoy perpetual existence while his personal assets are protected from the debts and losses of his company?

    Every business entity has its own pros and cons which must be greatly considered. However, most experts agree that a private limited company is the most ideal for entrepreneurs with a long-term goal for their business as this setup will allow them to enjoy protection of asset, attractive corporate incentives, and other benefits.

    The Products and Services

    Bonafide entrepreneurs have always associated their products and services to their target-market so they can estimate the amount of capital they will need, equipment and materials to be purchased, and the level of quality they should offer.

    Meanwhile, these questions can guide budding entrepreneurs on deciding on what products or services they should offer: What are my niche skills and interests that can generate profit? What is the estimated profit of my product? Can it be easily sold? It is easy to produce? Does it have an existing target-market?

    Competitive and Market Analysis

    One of the most important things any entrepreneurs should do is examine the business environment which includes the existing competition, different types of consumers, media, social norms, and other factors which can have a direct and indirect impact on their business.

    When conducting competitive analysis, most experts agree that these four factors should be the main focus of entrepreneurs: who are the direct and indirect competitors, the specific market of competitors, the number of years they have been operating, and how do they attract their target-market.

    Operations of a Business

    Operations usually include the location, how many employees a certain business will need, the equipment, machinery, suppliers, materials, ways to track inventory and sales, and other related-issues.

    The great strides made in the development of the Internet in the recent past has enabled information to be transmitted thousands of miles away with such ease and clarity that time and space are hardly of any consequence to the Internet Marketer today.

    Marketing Programs have literally taken over the Internet and riding high, is Affiliate Marketing.

    According to the Computer Industry Almanac “The world-wide Internet population for 2004 was 934 million and the projection for 2006 is 1.21 billion.”

    Sean Michael Kerner in an article in Click Z News quoting a spokesman for eBay states “According to eBay their largest affiliate earned over $1.3 million dollars in January commission, the largest amount yet in their affiliate program’s history. Their top 25 affiliates averaged over $100,000 per month each and the top 100 affiliates earn almost $25,000 each per month.”

    With this sort of statistics around, is it any surprise that thousands of entrepreneurs especially those Home Based Business entrepreneurs with very small marketing budgets are jumping on to the Affiliate Marketing band-wagon!

    Given below are some of the Popular reasons for this desire and urge to do Affiliate Marketing:

    1. Cost Factor: Most Entrepreneurs refrain from starting a brick and mortar business or for that matter a Home Based Business (non internet) because of the investment required. In Affiliate Marketing the set-up cost is negligible with most programs being free to join and the merchant even providing you with the tools, tips and websites.

    2. Pick and Choose Products: With dozens of Affiliate Program providers and thousands of merchants having their own affiliate programs, there are several thousands of products to choose from. You name it they have it! In fact there are even Fortune 500 companies to choose from. The idea is to pick and choose your niche products and promote them.

    3. No need for an Inventory. The hassle of purchasing, stocking of items and storing of finished items (in a production unit) and dispatching them are not there. There is no need to maintain an inventory. It is all handled by the merchant.

    4. No need for Employees. In any business the wages of the employees is one of the major expenditures to contend with. Here the problem does not arise since the marketer himself will operate his home business and probably get the assistance of a family member to help him.

    5. Necessity for Customer Service does not arise. Customer service plays a major role in the success or failure of a business. The advantage here is that there is no direct dealing with the customers. The website will automatically direct the customers to the merchants.

    6. Two Tier Affiliate Marketing: An attractive feature of certain affiliate programs is that they have a Two tier system, whereby affiliates can sign up as sub-affiliates below them. When the sub-affiliate earns a commission, the affiliate above him too earns a commission.

    Starting up a business usually requires a lot of capital. However, other than its basic capital, there are also other unforeseen expenses involved in starting a business, no matter how small or how big the business is. This is the reason why many business experts and consultants recommend entrepreneurs to prepare for the overhead expenses that they would encounter once they start their own business.

    But what if they lack the necessary capital to accommodate their business overhead costs? At this time, financial assistance from loaning firms may prove very useful. This is the reason why BPI had started their own business loan services, such as their Fast cash loan Philippines, which aims to offer Filipinos the chance to start their own business even though they lack the necessary funds for it.

    Why Businesses Became a Popular Trend Businesses had become a very popular trend in the Philippines. The number of small businesses, such as food cart businesses had grown massively all over the country. Part of the reason why is because of the continuous growth of new business opportunities, particularly the franchise business industry.

    However, other than the growing number of new business opportunities, another reason why businesses became a popular trend is because of the many financial support that the government, as well as the private sectors, offers for Filipino businessmen and women. One of those services is BPIs Ka-Negosyo business loan services.

    Benefits of BPIs Loaning Services What are the advantages of business loan services? One of the many advantages of loaning, such as the popular Fast cash loan Philippines service, to start a business is that it allows them to start or establish their business even without the right amount of budget or capital to establish it.

    BPIs Ka-Negosyo business loan services offer one of the most reliable ways for Filipinos to get financial support for their business plans or ventures. However, other than supporting Filipinos in establishing a business, BPIs Ka-Negosyo business loan services can also offer fast cash loans Philippines that specializes in providing emergency financial support for businesses.

    Other than for establishing businesses, loaning can also serve as a back-up plan for expanding businesses. Expanding a business requires a lot of capital, which is why loaning may be one of the few popular ways to achieve the necessary funding to expand their business without the worry of overhead costs. And due to BPIs Fast cash loan Philippines services, many businesses were given the chance to expand their business and earn more.
