Today on StartupSmart, we have one business’ tale on how it managed to stand out from a saturated market – in this case, the real estate industry.
Gary Braams runs Clik International, a business that allows real estate agents to sell multi-listed property across Australia. With $3.64 million in revenue, the business won the Best Start-up Product Award at this year’s StartupSmart Awards.
But it wasn’t all plain sailing for Braams, who lost everything in 2000 as a building developer. Today, he explains the lessons he learned in business that allowed him to bounce back and succeed second time around.
Elsewhere, web entrepreneur Dean Ramler has his tips on how to set up online payments for your business and New York-based Aussie Michael Giles explains why settling for second best is never good enough for start-ups.
Finally, do you need help cashing in on the one bright spot in the retail landscape – online sales?
