You have taken all the necessary things to start an open mic, now we will see how to start and how to grow and promote it. All these things should be clear before you open an open mic.

No startup or business can grow in a day, but there are some factors that are behind its growth. So, let’s start to talk about them.



First of all, your mind and your thinking should be clear about your business or start-up you are doing, what you want from it, till things are not clear, you will not be able to take the right decision.


The budget is an important factor. Many times it happens, that we do a start-up or start a business but we cannot run it further because if we do not have money, then you will have to walk with a budget in your hand for this.

You can bear the loss, you have to spend so much money, you will have to walk all this.


Whether or not you are in the demand market of the business and start-up or you are about to start or close your eyes and start, then you have to see the supply along with its demand in the market.


The more information you can gather in any category or field you are doing, the better you can do. It will increase your knowledge in that field and you will be able to understand things more quickly and clearly.


It is very important for your startup to know how much competition is there in whatever startup or business you are doing. You can learn things from your competitor, you can learn a lot from both their failure and success and your business or startup can grow further.


How to use technology to advance your business or startup also becomes important. You learn things like how you use social media, Google, or Internet.

How you take your business forward is completely up to you. Use technology as much as possible and make your business as easy and grow as possible.


How much money do you have to invest in starting a complete setup like if you take an example of this open mic?

                  ITEMS                PRICE in (approx)
Camera      50,000
Light, Tripod and black screen      8000-9000
Microphone with speaker and stand      9000-10000
Logo      500-600
Rent      5000
Total      ₹72,500-74,600

As seen in this table, this is just an example, the budget can be more than this and you can do anything in the beginning.

You can also indulge in starting from work money as if you can use the camera’s phone, wake up the lights CFL and you can also use the caller mic to set up the entire mic setup. so that your cost will be very useful but if you have a budget then take all these things.
