A Simple Step-by-Step Guide to start your full or part time company

Updated: 4 days ago

Starting a company with Peazy is easy, for the most part you be up and running in a few hours, especially if you're already a certified service provider. If not, choose a service that is in high demand—mobile hairdressers, estheticians, and pet groomers are particularly sought after. If you’re just getting started and plan to do all the work yourself, you can easily start a business as a sole proprietor. Here are the steps to get your business up and running:



Starting a successful mobile service business.



Step 1: No Need to Create a Corporation


You don't need to create a corporation because you can claim all your revenue as personal income with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). As long as you operate your business under your own name, you can keep things simple and straightforward.


Step 2: Operating Under a Business Name (Optional)


You can operate your business under your personal name or register a business name if you prefer. This step is optional, but a unique business name can help you stand out and be more memorable to clients.


Step 3: Apply for a GST Number (Optional)


If you make more than $30,000 in revenue in your business, you need to apply for a Goods and Services Tax (GST) number. You can register online through the Canada Revenue Agency's Business Registration Online. This ensures you're compliant with tax regulations once your business reaches this threshold.


Step 4: Purchase Required Tools and Equipment


Invest in the necessary tools and supplies to deliver high-quality mobile services. Ensure you have everything you need to provide a professional and efficient service to your clients.


Step 5: Get Insurance


It's important to have insurance to protect yourself and your business. This site offers affordable coverage for the services supported on our platform: Insure Bodywork.


Step 6: Sign Up for Peazy


Join Peazy and set up your profile. Register your Stripe account to handle payments seamlessly through our platform. You can sign up here: Peazy Service Provider Signup. This will make it easier for clients to book and pay for your services.


Step 7: Set Up Your Marketing


Start promoting your services on social media platforms where your potential customers are. Here are some key platforms to consider:

  • Facebook: Create a business page to showcase your services, share customer reviews, and post updates.

  • Instagram: Share high-quality photos and videos of your work. Use hashtags and engage with your audience through stories and posts.

  • TikTok: Create short, engaging videos showcasing your skills, behind-the-scenes content, and customer testimonials.

  • LinkedIn: Network with other professionals and businesses, share your achievements, and promote your services to a broader audience.


Set yourself apart by highlighting how amazing your work is. Don’t be shy—brag about your skills and the positive experiences of your clients. Consistent, high-quality content can help build your brand and attract a loyal customer base.


Step 8: Leverage Peazy's Network


By joining Peazy, you'll be put in front of our extensive customer and business network. This exposure can significantly boost your visibility and client base. While we help you reach a broader audience, it's still important to do some promotion yourself to maximize your reach and effectiveness. Together, we can elevate the mobile service industry, making it the most convenient option for customers everywhere.


 

Remember, while this guide provides a simple pathway to starting your business, it’s always a good idea to consult with your legal counsel or accountant to ensure this is the best path forward for you.
