WHEN YOU WANT YOUR SMALL BUSINESS TO APPEAR BIGGER, HERE ARE SOME THINGS YOU CAN DO.
When you start a business, there are times that you may lose business to a competitor just because they are a bigger company. Let’s face it, people just favor a bigger company because they give the impression of stability. Customers and clients believe that a big company has more resources and will be better for them in the long run. You really can’t blame them for thinking that, they’re only looking out for their best interest after all. So, what can you do? Make your small business appear bigger for one thing. There are some simple tricks you can do right away to make you look like a bigger company.
Get your own domain on the internet. It doesn’t cost much, but the impact can be big. Your email address will reflect your business name and hopefully you can include a website to go along with it.
Virtual offices are everywhere, and for good reason. You may be working out of your garage to save money, but at some point, a potential or existing client may want to meet with you at your office. What do you do then? Your potential or existing client may be understanding and overlook the fact that you work out of your garage, but why leave that to chance. It’s sometimes worth the money to rent a virtual office. Virtual offices come with great conference rooms and many have receptionists who will respond as if they work for you. It’s a nice touch.
Get professionals to work up some branding materials for you. It’s worth the money to get a professional logo and graphics to use on everything from your website to your business cards. It gives the big business impression for a reasonable cost.
Don’t miss another good opportunity because your business seemed too small. Investing in making your business appear bigger now will pay off in the future.
