Saving money and managing expenses are important especially at the beginning of the business. If you are looking for office furniture for example do not overspend your budget. Set your budget then stick to it, keeping a close eye on what you are spending and check with your accountant on what you can claim back through business tax. For example, office furniture items can be claimed back at the end of the tax year.
Carry your business cards everywhere and always be ready to promote your business no matter where you are because networking is very important. Keep your business cards close to hand in the top draw of your office desk to pass to any visitors.
Ensure that every invoice that leaves your office provides your customer with additional promotional information based on future purchases.
Place yourself as an industry professional and start writing specific industry related articles for online sites and newspapers, people will start remembering you and your company name and you will already be depositing into their emotional bank accounts as a trustworthy figure.
