How to Start a Granite Business

If you want to start a granite business, you should first decide on your primary focus. Once you’ve arrived at a decision, you can now work out a detailed and comprehensive plan.

When everything is set, you can purchase the needed materials, furniture, fixtures, etc. Advertise the business online and offline.

It is important that you have interest in granite and stonework if you want to become successful in opening a granite business. The market is highly competitive and you can benefit greatly if you do your homework. There are many challenges along the way and you should be prepared to face them. The key to success is having a business plan. You can use the internet to conduct some research and look into the current competition. It is important that you identify the weaknesses of your competitors so that you can use it as your strength upon entry in the market.

Startup Granite Business Guide

Decide on the type of business that you want to focus. For instance, you can become a distributor of granite products by establishing contact with manufacturers. Another option is to offer architectural services with primary focus on granite works. If there aren’t enough granite products in your state or country, you can become an importer. Financing is a great concern but with a detailed plan, you can easily secure the needed funding. You can check with Small Business Administration and see if the agency can offer you loans with reasonable interests. You have to consider your background and your expectations. Calculate the needed capital and apply for loans.

To ensure that you reach potential customers, you should have a good marketing plan. Will you focus in selling granite online through your own online store or would you rather lease out a store space? You can choose to have both if you want to. Aside from the marketing aspect, you also have to do some financial projections. If you can prove the viability of the business, you can earn great profits. All these things should be included in your business plan. As you can see, the plan is not only for startup but it can still be used when managing your business.

Have you decided on the area where you want to focus? When everything is set, you can now set up the online website. You need to lease out store space. Purchase the needed furniture, fixtures, supplies, and other materials. Make sure that you setup the store properly. Don’t forget to attend networking functions in your area. This is your chance to meet potential clients and connections. You should carry business cards with you and make an impact when you introduce yourself to others. Decide on the right advertising methods to use like fliers, online ads, and many others.

    @sanchitha ..Banglore is a blooming and bloomed market for granite and stones. Areas like Jigani fairy circle are good option to start with . But competition is big there . I suggest to start an outlet in distant city where there is much less completion for startups . Basic knowledge can b gained by working under someone supervision additionally you can keep skilled person for selling Ang purchasing.

    I want to start a Marble/ Granite and Tile business in Eastern Nepal. I have tried taking suggestions from businesspersons in local area but they are reluctant to provide any information. The only thing I know is that I will have to import marbles, granites, etc from India. Since I am trying to operate my business in Eastern Nepal, the location of supplier will also have a great impact on cost of the marbles. There are a lot more things that I will have to take into consideration. But can anyone give me the general idea regarding how should I move forward to contact the suppliers and start my business.
