Lack of Planning
Planning is always the first step and people often make mistakes in this phase as they are beginners. But even as a beginner, you can make perfect plans for your business. Risks will always pop up but you also have to have the backup to fight with these risks. Planning successfully can make you manage to get the best productivity out of your business.

This planning part will include your personal plan, financial plan and most importantly the marketing plan. When you will be able to mix these three in a very balanced combination, the fruit of success can never refuse you.
Starting the Business Only with Loan
Let us clear you one thing that, construction business is never the cheapest one. By only taking a loan, you cannot execute your perfect plan either. Every basic and typical construction company too needs a starting point between 50,000-100,000 US Dollars. There are many costs as equipment, labor, vehicle, management, production, licensing, registration, insurance etc. So, if you only start with getting loan, you will not only be left with a little cash but also can face problem with the loan repayment as we have mentioned before, there will be many risks. A small portion of your investment can come out of loan, but the larger one has to be your own savings.
Not Getting Proper Certification
This is one of the biggest mistakes that small construction companies generally make. They usually think that they can easily get away with their business without maintaining any legal procedure. But, this should not be done. Not only for the ethical cause, but also for the safety of your company. Because very soon you can be caught up by the government, you may even have to go to jail and your company will be vanished even before it starts properly.
Lack of Marketing
Publicity is often the key to success nowadays. Almost 90 percent of the construction companies now use social media marketing for their business. Don’t fall behind, get a shot of publicity to develop your business successfully.
Spread your business through national and finally international borders because except that, you will never be as big as you dream. So, for this, you have to create a great website with all rich contents and designs representing your ideas and of course, your own business purpose. This vast web presence will attract and engage many online leads that will eventually lead you to some destination. And maybe those destination will pave the way to some other attractive destination. Through consistent blogging and social media marketing, you can flourish your business.
