Don't forget to visit Wendy's Handmade Monday and read her other posts that always has lots of interesting business tips... I also signed up to the craft shop Wholeport after reading about Wendy's purchases and today Wendy has a competition in conjunction with Wholeport. We've entered! We shall order a stamp anyway as been searching endlessly for the right stamp for Feline Care. Be great if you could LIKE them too. They are so protective and when the land was being sold, raised tens of thousands of pounds to buy the land and keep the homes for the felines in there care. I admire that.
Does anyone listen to the Jeremy Vine Show on radio 2? Friday was about small businesses.
I made quick notes when I could at work!!!! You can always guarantee the phones rings!
1: Go for something that millions are not. (eg was give cupcakes a miss)
2: You can start with little capital. (ie hundred pounds IS ok. At least two people are now millionaires)
3: Avoid the overheads - work from home, no staff unless they can work for free, basically do whatever you can without laying out cash unnecessarily. Do what you can do yourself.
4: Flash the name about - email signature, a t-shirt, name on your bag, postcards to friends etc, join groups forums etc and leave the business name, local papers sometimes happy to report on a local business for free.. My plan was always to have a painted plaque to hang from the coat hook above the back side window of my car. Just cannot until the web is live. I pin business cards up on free notice boards too. I leave messages and always add our business name.
5: Yes, social networking. (FB, Twitter etc)
My time is taken up with the web now. My sister left in August as she has the chance to study for her chartered accountancy so that comes first. Slight back step for us yet we've made lots of headway in another. Sometimes I feel quite overwhelmed with the work involved with the web as it's the extras too - photos, costings, sku, meta tags etc etc. Plus ideas for events. Thank fully Ray makes the luxuries ... that's hubby, by the way!
I've been getting ready for November 8th and making signage. My leg is out of action and in lot of pain. Got hit by a car two years ago and every now and then my leg gives out. All because someone wasn't paying attention on the road. All that I've needed today has been upstairs lol!
Ok, I've rambled.
