Make your business dream a reality in 2015

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

The new year is the perfect time to take that great business idea floating around in your head and make it a reality. Here are some simple tips that will help you on your journey to a thriving, profitable business.

What’s in a name?

Before you can start printing business cards and telling people about your company, it needs a name. Thinking of what to call your business can be an exciting part of the process, and trading ideas with other people involved is a good way to generate a list of candidates. Some people go for a word related to their industry, others go for something a bit more abstract in an attempt to choose something memorable or witty. Whatever you choose, make sure you a comfortable with it; it will be representing you to your clients after all!

Get a plan

Whatever area of business you want to operate in, you’ll need a thorough plan to help you through your exciting first year. This should cover things like who your target customers are, how much money you plan to make, what you need to start trading as a business, and how you want to market your product or services. It can be tempting to make it up as you go along, but a well thought out plan at the beginning can save a lot of trouble down the road, and helps to prove you are serious about success if you choose to get a business loan.

Start taking calls!

So you’ve got a great idea, a snappy name, and an ironclad business plan. The next step is to sit back and watch the money roll in, right? Well, not quite. You need someone on the end of the phone to take orders from your customers, and to field enquiries. That’s where a telephone answering service can come in handy. Our service allows you to have a team of friendly and professional staff dealing with customers at hours of your choosing, without having to hire your own staff or maintain offices; happy customers and lower overhead costs are the result. Even better, our service is completely customisable to your needs, so you will never miss a sale and never spend a penny more than you need to. We reflect our commitment to our customers with our short rolling contracts – our clients stay with us because it’s the best option, not because they are obliged to.
