Friends, family can be part of your unofficial sales team.
Whether you are speaking with possible investors, your employees, real or potential customers, or your neighbor, as entrepreneurs you need a communication strategy to make people feel like they are in the loop — at whatever level you deem appropriate. Often, people who know about your start-up venture may be interested in helping you, in a sense becoming an unofficial sales force. With good communication, you can equip them with your message of choice.
