    Simply, Strategy is a result of a detailed strategic planning process.

    One of the imperative feature of an effective business strategy is that it should be cost effective or break even.

    Moreover, a good strategy is designed in a smart and clever way aligned with SMART goal principles inferring that your goals are –

    • Specific
    • Measurable
    • Achievable

    •  Timely

    There are some easy steps to answers this question

    If you take it from after the fact, looking at strategies that worked. As per the point of view, a good strategy is one that worked. Every successful business had a good business strategy for more growth. A good business strategy focuses on a well-defined targeting market, with a business offering. The part of business identity is what you want from your business. Some businesses are about your lifestyle or pursuing your passion and work.

    Hey - one of the most effective ways to develop an effective business strategy is to identify a successful business that is where you want to be and learn everything you can about how they got there. Business is a team sport and often startups forget that thousands of entrepreneurs have already walked the path they are starting out on. It doesn't matter whether it is manufacturing a new barbecue grill, opening a yoga studio, providing professional services, or selling fortune cookie fortunes (one of my clients actually had such a business.) The point is that you can learn from what worked and what didn't work by studying a "pilot business" that is already doing what you want to do.

    For extra credit - call up the owner, introduce your self and ask them what was the dumbest thing they did on their startup journey. Most successful people will gladly share advice as long as you are respectful of their time and don't come across as trying to hustle them or blow smoke.

    Hey. Also, a part of strategy is implementation. Couple days ago I read about proximity marketing beacons. This is a technology that takes the advertisement campaigns to a whole new level. Recently, the proximity marketing devices called beacons became a revelation for the retail stores and small start-ups. Proximity marketing uses Bluetooth to transmit information to mobile devices in the nearest proximity.
