Marketing Your Business

Whether you are starting a business, or growing an established business, getting your sales and marketing strategy right is crucial to your success. It is a critical part of your business plan.

Forecast and plan your sales: this will help you identify problems and prevent cashflow issues.

Understand the market you are operating in: decide on a pricing, advertising and selling strategy, think about how you will manage your customers. These are just some of the things you should do on a continual basis to ensure the survival of your business.

Marketing material: think about your marketing material, including your logo, what to include on your letterhead setting up a website and your social media presence.

Strong logo: information on what makes a great logo and how to create your own logo.
