The internet is as an entrepreneur is keen to try the soil, starting the initial how to find the market, Tun Capital, pull resources, model? Consumer-to-consumer, business, SNS, these are formed by the subdivision of the industry, then in these areas, "recruit" how to understand these "basic action"?
The deadlock in the new market
Southern Metropolis Daily (hereinafter called the South Capital): Many potential entrepreneurs are locked in the emerging industry or market, and after the real came, many people immediately fell, this is why?
Tangzhou: Personally feel that the new market, new industry for entrepreneurs, especially the first time to start a business is the most difficult to implement, because the profit model, market analysis, and the matching operation team, resource integration is blank.
Many entrepreneurs find the so-called "new market", facing the real problem is that the "new market" is actually very narrow, the expansion is too bad, this is a knot. Therefore, in finding their own piece of "Blue sea", it is best to first deny yourself once or even many times, rational entrepreneurship.
Many of the entrepreneurs we are exposed to in the beginning, often the target of their own locked in Beijing, Shanghai, such as the first-tier cities, and these cities are often the most competitive, and difficult to survive. I suggest they should put the attention of the people to the three or four-line cities, domestic consumption in the long run is the largest growth space, where more easily find new soil.
Hong Xiaobo: On the field of electronic commerce to talk about new markets, have to say department stores, the traditional way of selling online is still not shaken. Because there are a lot of commodities commodity prices are low, can be found within reach, convenient to buy. On the contrary, the process of buying on the internet is cumbersome.
Therefore, the current more sophisticated e-commerce will be used with industry and even the limitations of the business model of goods, a lot of goods to move online sales and can not form a good shopping behavior.
It's better to have more executive power than to find money
South: Entrepreneurs often have an embarrassment that too little money. Do they have a path to avoid or solve the fund short board?
Zhou: Open an online shop on Taobao also calculate a business, do not need how much money, also have a lot of people do well. Some people invest to burn money to do the internet industry, but fall miserably. For the internet industry, not rich can solve all problems, the entrepreneurial ability to execute more important. For example, this issue of the Elf pet dating site (see this topic C 10), the investment is not large, the market is also very distinctive, his early work can also, but the most important thing is to promote the site out. It is easy to think of burning money to promote, but for the new small web site, where is the money? In fact, small sites also have a small site to promote the path, I understand that a lot of webmasters are through the rich content of the site, so that search engine easier to find it, or in the relevant forums posted on the Internet to solve the way to promote. This is actually a manifestation of executive power.
Tangzhou: As an angel investment, we pay attention to those mature industry entrepreneurs, do not care whether he was successful in the past or not, pay more attention to whether he has a good executive power, because in the traditional field of competition in the enterprise survival to the last is particularly strong implementation.
Entrepreneurs, especially when they start early in their business, want Angel investment help, but to realize how many it entrepreneurs in the country can get the VCS? Don't rely too much on V C and PE. Because the investment bank is only concerned about those industries where the market is listed more cases.
Hong Xiaobo: Goods and consumers are always the sales industry to think about the problem. For some small money and want to enter the E-commerce industry entrepreneurs, will your target group of consumers more refined, for the more vertical consumers to marketing, based on the characteristics of different industries and products to innovate, will ease a lot of pressure. At present in the field of E-commerce is too heavy, are thinking big efforts in doing some hype, a great deal of spending for publicity, ignoring the essence of e-commerce, in fact, E-commerce and traditional shopping services are no different, down-to-earth to do every step more important.
The industry needs a new model
Nan du: Some people think that finding a good business model equals half the success, is that it?
Zhou: The innovation of business model is the core of enterprise competition, but the good mode is not to come out, but to find and reconstruct in the development. If the entrepreneur is just doing it on the brain's imagination, the result may backfire.
Hong Xiaobo: At least the industry is very much in need of a new model, the core of the company is business, the Internet is just a means. At present, there is more plagiarism and imitation. The new model is the best entry point for the consumer entrants, such as shopping shopping information and culture is the e-commerce industry needs to be upgraded, which will bring consumers a better shopping experience.
The rise of group buying network is a good example of model innovation. Good experience and interactivity can attract consumers ' attention with the selling point of limited daily sales. Group shopping behavior to eliminate the consumer's worry mentality and after-sales service worries, at the same time get more favorable prices, so it should be mature online buyers accepted.

B ArT AB was developed on the basis of F Acebookconnect, essentially an iphone app that allows users to give their Facebook friends a real drink on their mobile phone, costing just 1 of dollars, a platform to focus on social gifts.

Its use process is: users click "sendd rinks Now" to see the relevant bars and cafes supporting the activity, and then confirm, pay by credit card or online payment, when your friend will receive the relevant notice ——— only need to spend 1 dollars to drink the "digital drink ticket."
However, after you go to the bar, the only first glass of wine cost is 1 dollars, the rest of the drinks, still is the original price or discounted price.
Why is the merchant willing to cooperate with Bartab? Very simple, it can help marketers to promote marketing, after all, who do not know 1 dollars of 1 cups of wine will have what kind of spending power? If not, just advertise. For Bartab and businesses, as long as users have substantial consumption, they can enjoy a share.
It should be stressed that Bartab currently only supports Google Chrome, IE8, Firefox more than 2.0 browsers, and now only support the San Francisco bar.
