How to stay off Santa’s naughty business list
As your business heads towards 2017, Santa is getting ready to put your business under his magnifying glass. With a new year comes a new set of ripe opportunities and hidden challenges; so make sure your business doesn’t get left in the cold. And so, with a critical eye, Santa is coming to see which business owners have been naughty or nice.
Has your business received the attention it deserves?
Garnering the interest of potential clientele can be frustrating work, but vital. Obviously, your business’ survival is dependant upon a constant flow of customers, and the more you bring in the more your business can flourish. But, at a time when most people have their eyes set firmly upon their smart devices, just how do you draw their attention?
This is where having a website does wonders for your business’ visibility. Here, people can get an in-depth understanding of what your business is about and the services you offer. If you want to communicate and advertise new products, services, promotions, appointments or simply discuss the sector you specialise in, a website is the place to do it.
Time to feed your growth?
As more customers and clients take an interest in your business, you may decide it’s time to expand. If you’re having to turn away key opportunities because your facilities can’t cope, you may find yourself on Santa’s naughty list. You need to make the most of every opportunity that comes your way. This is where Rangewell can step in. With our in depth knowledge and experience of a number of sectors, we can grant you access to a diverse array of finance packages, including growth finance. Offering you a tailor-made assortment of secured and unsecured loans, this product can allow you to borrow anything from £5,000 to as much as £1,000,000.
Need to make your business sparkle and glisten?
As time passes you may find yourself needing to redecorate and furnish your business. With the constant flow of customers coming to and from your business, your furniture and decor are bound to get scuffed, torn and dirty. To ensure your customers are happy, that your business keeps up with the latest trends and doesn’t draw Santa’s ire, refurbishing your business is essential. Of course, refurbishing your business can amass quite the sum, but the elves at Rangewell are here to help. With our expertise, we can grant you access to refurbishment finance, allowing you to secure the ideal loan for your business.
Time to fine-tune your tech?
Ensuring your technology is up to date is imperative to providing high-quality services. Too many SMEs still haven’t installed Chip ‘n’ Pin and Epos systems like they should. The lack of sufficient technology is damaging, causing them to miss out on vital opportunities. When unable to pay using the method they prefer, many customers choose to walk away from transactions.
Is your business generating too much waste?
Of all the things, nothing is more irksome to Santa than unnecessary waste. It’s an issue that affects many businesses, but is all too easy to put right. So, are you doing all you can to reduce waste? Inflow and Carta are just two examples of the free inventory management tools on offer to your business. With their application, you’ll be able to review what’s selling, what’s not and how much stock you need to order in the future.
