1. Who will be responsible for running your AP Lazer machine?
Most of the time, business owners want to run the machine. However, I suggest that the owners’ time be spent performing direct revenue generating activities like sales, marketing, and business operations. Instead of an owner operating the machine, a business can hire a few graphic design students or new graduates to create the artwork for your engraving jobs.
Tip: Contact local community colleges and universities. They have internship programs and fresh graduates who are actively seeking new jobs. In addition to designing artwork and operating the machine, a graphic design student should be able to create/maintain a website, set up a social media campaign, and do all of the online/offline advertising for your new machine. You may consider training and utilizing a few interns at once and then hiring the best of the bunch full time.
