In terms of marketing the most consumerist, because the Internet has proven effective for disseminating information.
  • Format Electronics - With the electronic format, an information easily spread widely via email, IM (Instant Messaging), or RSS feeds.
  • 24-Hour Service - Anyone, anytime, and anywhere you can access the service for 24 hours. Compared to the normal working hours, are only 8-10 hours per day, this is a value-added. This is also the opportunity to serve customers in remote or have the time difference.

Easy Ways Starting Business

To start a business or a business not wait for ideal conditions. Adequate capital, strategic location, the employees say, the spare time to start a business is the ideal condition. And to get it all in the same time take on a greater sacrifice.

Moreover, for us, we are still as employees in other places, awaiting the ideal conditions can be a difficult choice.

One option for an employee to have their own business is to open the business side. So that we can still work and get a salary. And we try to get additional revenue through the efforts of our path.

Opening the business side can be a choice that we can determine the type of business and the business scale according to our interests and capabilities. If we have the ideal conditions, the options open to companies, shops, or take the franchise is the right option.

But for those who have not dare to take risks by opening their own shops, there is one choice that is easy to immediately start the business, namely with the consignment system.

With the system we commend consignment merchandise to our stores, kiosks, or minimarkets / supermarkets others. We do not need to have their own shops and do not need to have their own employees. Clearly it will save much money. We only need to inculcate in the capital goods investment of time and energy plus stores to offer to others. goodsn not need their own, can we buy goods wholesale and then we loan to several shops.

Consignment agreement can be flexible, to small shops such as kiosks, we just made a family / deliberation and discussion with the agreement that much easier. How many goods that are, how much it costs, like when checked, when the payment is done, and other agreements and discussed with the deal after both parties agree or the consignment can be run. There is agreement that this be done in writing (and indeed should be written), although in a format that is simple, so if there is a dispute, there is pedomannya.

To commend the goods to companies that have large (minimarket or supermarket) on the terms more stringent. The supermarkets have set conditions that must be met.

Our experience in kiosks (Kiosk Addina), after the visible store (a lot of customers and many transactions), who had come to offer consignment. Initially we are very careful, there is a sense of worry goods will not behave. But Alhamdulillah many consignment of goods sold successfully in our kiosks.

He offered to the kiosks, we also varied. Initially only the veil and similar products, and offers a perfume, and even now there are women who leave the bag. The owner of the goods that leave us in kiosks, periodically check the barangya behavior or not, need to be added or not. Sometimes also be conducted by SMS, and if it is behavior, the owner of the goods come to our kiosks to receive payment of goods that behavior.

Continue what if the goods do not behave? Owners usually swap goods with other goods and goods that may not lakuk in kiosks we can, and probably behavior in other places. So I commend consignment of goods should not only to one store. If you can leave the goods to many shops, the same we have many stores without having to rent a store, without having to pay employees, and money flows ...

Ethics violations can occur anywhere, including in the business world. To achieve the benefits, many companies do various moral violations. This shady practices not only harm other companies, but also communities and countries. Practices of corruption, collusion and nepotism are mushrooming in many companies.
Business ethics should be turned on in the company. In this regard, companies that operate in the field of consultants has big role in the establishment of norms. How a company consultant uphold business ethics? Dingy A. Stamboel, Managing Partner SWEETCAKE Stamboel & Partners was a consultant with Price Waterhouse of the world Coopers (PWC) explains Lika-bay business consultant and efforts to enforce ethics and transparency in the company.

How a company consultant uphold business ethics? Dingy A. Stamboel, Managing Partner SWEETCAKE Stamboel & Partners was a consultant with Price Waterhouse of the world Coopers (PWC) explains Lika-bay business consultant and efforts to enforce ethics and transparency in the company. Check out the various views:

"Companies such as international consultant PWC has a global standard. They will find that consulted the same standards in various countries. Companies that have a standard will be known reputation, both as a brand, content services, quality people, and the output of the people.

Approach with the standard qualifications, not "the origin-asalan." Company consultants carry very high quality of the mind. Excellence companies located in knowledge management. For example, how to empower and enhance the knowledge with a clear program. These efforts require a business that is not small.

To build a reputation, the company's highly respects ethics consultant. Therefore, the consultant company that rarely advertise in excess. So that reputation remains intact, the consultant company has several criteria. We reject the high-risk clients, although he provides a lot of money.

In choosing clients, PCW more research industrial selection. Parties, each company has the possibility to obtain consulting services. Most clients already know our reputation. They will pay a fee in accordance with the services offered, such as setting up the financial system, information technology, and increasing the efficiency of other companies. Package offered by the consultant company specifically will help the complex problems faced by a company, including the company's collapse cure.

When the Indonesian economy to grow rapidly in the last ten years, many new entrants in the business. There are traders who became a banker. Many businessmen also a very expansive outside ability. They compete to build the business konglomerasi exit from the core business without the management of both organizations. As a result, during the difficult economic lot of companies that go bankrupt.

One of the company's ethics consultant is to maintain the confidentiality of the client. Consultant companies can only handle two companies in the same industry, but the confidentiality of each company will remain intact. The company that one can not take advantage of other companies. Each company has a resolution of the problem, so it can eventually compete with one another.

Company consultants have value and provide recommendations to be implemented clients. For example, there are ethics, the company does not employ staff children. In overseas, there is a restriction of trade relations with companies that do not carry the ethical trading. We also suggest, companies do not take advantage of overcharging consumers by way of deception.

Violations of ethics in business companies are many, but the efforts to constitute a need to be encouraged ethic. For example, companies do not need to fudge to achieve victory. Relations are not transparent, can cause special relationship or collusion, and provides opportunities for corruption.

From where efforts to enforcement of ethical business started? Business ethics most readily applied in the company itself. Leaders of the company's start this step because they become role models for their employees. In addition, business ethics must be implemented in a transparent manner. Company leaders should be separate companies with their own property. In the operation, the companies that trade rules set by the ways of law.

Business ethics will not be violated if there are rules and sanctions. If all the behavior of one left, I will become a habit. Repotnya, a norm that this will be the culture. Therefore, if there is a violation of the rules provided for sanctions to give lessons concerned.

Business services consultant may not be separated from the irregularities. In this business reputation and the necessary understanding of perception. Therefore, if there are negative perceptions do not diremehkan. In facing the problem, companies do not defensive, but action to reform.

Efforts can be made by the company to enforce the culture of transparency, among others:
  1. Enforcement of culture is responsible for all what to do. Individuals who do not have the error hiding behind the institution. To state the truth sometimes considered against the flow, but now there must be courage to declare a new opinion.
  2. Measurements used to measure the performance clear. Not based on proximity with superiors, but the performance.
  3. Management of human resources must be good.
  4. Vision and mission clearly reflects the behavior of the organization.
