In addition to ensuring that you are protected with NY business insurance, employing the right people, and getting the right type of products, one of the biggest challenges of launching a business is getting your name out to consumers. As equally important as this, you’ll want to build a good reputation for your business in order to retain the customers and/or clients that you take on. So, how can you accomplish this?
First, talk with the experts and cultivate good business relationships. This will not only help you share your brand, but you will have resources to ask for free business advice about important matters such as local licensing and laws, business plans, selling and marketing techniques, and financing. Just a couple groups that are extremely helpful to speak with are the U.S. Small Business Administration and the Small Business Development Center.
Next, lower your financial risk level. This can be done by planning ahead and making sure that your personal life, your credit history, your business plan, and your business operations are in order before you seek financing. Practice organized record keeping for inventory and accounting purposes, and show lenders that you have expertise in the kind of business for which you are seeking funding.
Lastly, it’s important to follow some very basic customer service principles. Be truthful in all advertising claims, disclose all terms of any promotion or sale you are conducting, always honor your offers, protect and respect your customers’ information, and comply with the law by familiarizing yourself with federal, state, and local laws that regulate your business.
