9 key points of marketer and  entrepreneur to become perfect bloggers and entrepreneur
So Today I am going to give an account of 9 key points of marketer and  entrepreneur  to readers and newbie.
A)Keeping options open:-

The smartest second and third time entrepreneurs either online or offline,I have seen raising capital in a very focused and efficient manner.They preserve option value at each stage of the company’s growth and make conscious decisions about how to proceed in each funding round.I have learned this the hard way in my first company,where we raised capital at a Rs 2.50 cores valuation and essentially priced ourselves out of an attractive M&A opportunity.Less acquisition target is the best to safe from lose other hand they will have raised too much capital will be lost.
B)Hire the best talent:-

It is one of the major factor in corporate world.The bottom line is A players may cost 50% more than B players,but will add 10X the value. Talent wins.Be proactive and always on the lookout for impact players.
C)Take advantage of the moment:-

My own notion says that Great entrepreneurs do n’t wait for any chance.When they are onto something,they move aggressively,and do n’t spend time thinking about Plan B.They realize they have a window of opportunity,and they jump through it.The leader is aggressive,maniacally focused on growth,moving fast,and delivering for customers.The followers are often bogged down by customer/product/board/funding issues.
D)Work with great investors:-

There is no need to read about on TechCrunch. Ever heard of Dave Strohm,David Cowan,or Jim Goetz?They are three of the most successful early stage VCs ever meet,but you won’t typically read about them on today’s hot tech gossip blog.Don’t get caught up in the hype. Focus on VCs who have built winners in your space and reference well with entrepreneurs and CEOs.They will make a difference.
E)Play bigger than you are:-

It is needed to create a market impression that is greater than reality.This has to be done carefully as history is littered with companies that failed to live up to the hype but done well it can really boost the company’s prospects.Artfully tooting your own horn is part marketing,part PR,and part an aggressive approach to today’s social platforms.Done right,Twitter,LinkedIn,and Facebook can serve as powerful platforms to amplify you company’s position.The key is to not just talk about how amazing your company is,but to show how it is succeeding with key customers,business milestones,analyst and media coverage,and key new hires.
F)Find and leverage mentors:-

There are many amazing CEOs in India who love nothing more than to help young entrepreneurs build great companies,you just have to ask for their help.It is one of the truly unique aspects of Indian culture.
G)Be honest and transparent:-

The most successful entrepreneurs I know are transparent with their team and with their board.They stay in regular communication with their board members and treat board meetings as an opportunity to have a meaningful discussion around core issues as not as a sales pitch. Your board and investors are “in the boat” with you,and fully invested in helping you build a winning company.
H)Enjoy the ride:-

I have seen that one of my friend started his first company when he was 22,and by the time he was 30 we had raised more than Rs.10 cores and hired 300 employees.It was awesome,but he was immensely stressed.The second time around, he surrounded himself with better talent,raised less capital,and had a lot more fun(and a better outcome).Great entrepreneurs have that unique DNA that makes them relentlessly focused on building something great,and it is a 24×7 thought process.However,the difference I see between first-time entrepreneurs and second-time entrepreneurs is that veterans are typically enjoying the ride.They have figured out how to make time to have fun,spend time with family and friends,and still build a great company either online or offline.

I)Let Be Think:-

After riding the race and getting success in corporate world leave the place to think others for you which give more pleasure then own self created gives.So find right talent and replace him/her in your place and enjoy the corporate life balancing.

It is better to look forward to hearing from entrepreneurs in the trenches.What did It miss? What kind of advice have it needed from valued mentors,investors,customers,readers,clients.This will make easier to take new steps.
