Tips to Create a Successful Small Business

Starting your own business is a huge accomplishment. Yet, creating a successful business can also be very stressful. Keep these tips in mind to ensure that your business flourishes! • Make a plan. Before you start your business, make sure you have a plan. The plan should involve every aspect of your business, including how much money you’re able to invest and both long-term and short-term goals. • Find the right mentor. Find someone who has started a successful business and ask him or her to mentor you. There are many resources available to find a mentor if you don’t know anyone personally, including SCORE, which is a free resource. • Have enough funds. Committing all of your time and money into a new business can be risky. Make sure you have enough funds in a separate savings account so that you’ll be able to cover your bills for at least six months. • Stay competitive. Even if your business doesn’t have very many direct competitors, make sure you stay competitive in your market. Always stay up to date with the advertising, promotions, and prices of all the companies in your market. Also, capitalize on what makes you different from your competitors. • Get your name known. Word of mouth is the best way to grow your business, since most people trust the opinion of their friends and family. Offering a free gift for every referral is a great way to encourage your existing clients to refer their friends and family. Most importantly, make sure you have the right business insurance policies to cover your business from any unfortunate situation. Contact Lloyd S. Berkett Insurance Agency, Inc. in Los Angeles, California for all of your commercial insurance needs.
