SMALL BUSINESS TIPS

Here are a few quick business tips that could help you be more successful.

 

Choosing a Business:

 

When choosing the type of business to go into, choose something that you could really see yourself enjoying.  Do a search online for business ideas.  If you work a full-time job, operate your business part-time until you are comfortable with the income you are generating.

 

How to Start a Business Online:

 

Get a website (ad).  Post your website link on Facebook.  Search the web for free online advertising.  Learn about affiliate marketing and Google AdSense.  You can make additional money by adding those to your website.

 

How To Promote Your Services Online:

 You may want to try free and low-cost advertising services first.  You may not see results right away.  Continuous advertising is important for all businesses.  People may not need your service the first time they see your ad.

 

Ask several people to critique your ad before your place it.  Read books on marketing and sales, and online websites like ehow to learn how to write an ad.  Also, read other people’s ads.

 

 

How to Get Money to Start a Business:

 

Do Research on SBA Loans.  Talk to Your Bank.  Talk to your family and friends.  Consider raising money through crowdfunding.

 

How to Handle Business Finances:

 

Keep a separate bank account for your business finances.  Using an Accountant costs money, but it could free up your time for other business matters.  Keep all of your business receipts for the year in one place.  Keep track of all of your business expenses.  Check with your accountant about what tax write offs you may have.

  

How to Stay Focused On Your Business:

 

Create a “To Do” List for the Following Day.

 

Keep Your Work Area Nice and Clean.

 

Although you may work from home, stick to a set work schedule.

 

Don’t let your emails overwhelm you. Schedule a specific amount of time each day and stick to it.

 

Force yourself to take breaks.

 

Set Goals for Yourself (daily, monthly and annually). But don’t beat yourself up if you don’t reach the goals you have set. Setting goals helps to keep you motivated.

 

Delegate small tasks when you can.

 

How to Get Customers:

 

Promote your business every single day.

 

Search online for free advertising sources.

 

Consider using social media, such as FaceBook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Instagram, Tumblr, Google Plus, etc.

Don’t Give Up.
