Hello everyone, I started my first business in February, its a computer training center with 4 student capacity and up till date I've made zero income. I attributed some of this to:


1. Location is low population density

2. People dont know the business exists yet


I'm planning to startup in another location with a higher population density when this one starts growing.

I've done some marketing like visit 2 of the only universities in the area. Yesterday I printed some A5 flyers and went about town pasting them in front of stores that potential clients buy their necessities.

Any additional input is really appreciated.
Thank You

With the rise of services like udemy, I doubt that people would want to pysically go some place to be computer trained.
Moreover, what kind of training do you offer?

do you have any evidence that suggests people want it?
There is no strong evidence for that

What credentials do your customers get after the training? Most people don't take training for what they learn, they take training for what learning it will allow them to do.

All of what you mentioned is already on YouTube for free. It's on Udemy too, if you want to pay $15 for something more structured perhaps. For someone to pay to enroll in your training at a physical location, they better be getting something so amazing it can't be found online, or receiving a fancy, widely recognized certification for completing it. That kind of service already exists in the form of universities.

Yesterday, I spoke to the owner of a business center who told me people come inquiring for computer training which they don't offer, I'm going to advertise my poster there incase of referrals.
Optimism infinitum
