Recognition of your company is important! One of the best ways to get your company moving along and having many people use your services is by having the perfect logo. A good logo can get you the recognition you need and the branding of your company that will make you famous. The problem is that having a good logo created costs money, and then advertising it so that it is plastered all over and so people can see it costs a bundle as well.
Fifteen years ago the Internet was a fantasy to some extent. No one knew that the Internet would take over the whole world the way it has. Today, no one can go far without having access to the World Wide Web, we even have access to it on our phones. The Internet follows us everywhere and we use it for everything. Thanks to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter it is also the way we connect with our friends and family. These same websites, as well as many other Internet perks are also the way we do business today! Everyone has a website these days to help promote their business, and if they do not, others think that the company is not as professional as they want to come across.
There is an old wives tale being circulated around many business people and communities that the only place to get a proper financing is a bank. Just like some other tales you might have heard, this is not true. If you break a mirror it does not necessarily mean that you will have seven years of bad luck, and if you eat chocolate it does not mean you are guaranteed to have acne break outs that are uncontrollable for as long as you continue. Banks are NOT the only place you can get financing from because there are companies that specialize in helping small businesses with their finances.
Small Business Financing can be obtained in a much simpler and less stressful process than the ones offered to business owners at a bank. For one, the paper work that needs to be filled out is significantly reduced. These business lenders do not need to know your whole life story and then some to see that you are good for the money, but only need a few key pieces of documentation to get the process moving along. Second, you do not have to wait an unspecified amount of days for the confirmation that you have been approved and then receive your funds. With these business lenders you receive word of approval, and if applicable your financing, within the span of 7 business days. Third, you do not need to worry about any hidden aspects of your financing popping up at you. All the details of the financing are ironed out at the very beginning.
In the economic recession that many businesses are forced to face today, it becomes extremely difficult to keep a small business in proper working condition. It always seems as if a piece to the puzzle is missing and even if you found that missing piece someone or something is standing in your way, making it almost impossible for you to grab it with your very own hands.
The reason why I say “almost impossible” and not “impossible” is because at Business Credit & Capital we want to help you get over the hurdles and get that piece of the puzzle you just cannot seem to get on your own. We want to push you, and lift you up and over so that you can keep your business running efficiently.
Most people looking to start a new business venture these days are advised by their peers, family and friends that they should wait until the economy is completely out of recession. The same excuses are told time and again: People just aren’t spending like they used to; banks are lending out much less money and to a more select group of individuals; start-up costs are much higher than they used to be and are just “not worth the hassle.” Well, it just happens to be that this is not the actual case.
Start-up costs are not always as high as people make them out to be and in many regions people are still spending, maybe not as much, but if your product and service is good then you do not have much to worry about. What is very true is that many, if not most, banks are not lending out as much money, and if they are lending out any money it is to a very select lucky few. These select few are the ones who can show so much paper work that you would think they are some form of “pack rats,” or they already have enough money/stocks/equities that can back up and be put up as collateral for any part of the loan that cannot be paid back.
Running a business is hard work. Making sure you have the right monetary funds to run that business is one of the main worries business owners have. These worries keep small business owners up at night, pushes them to find some crazy way to fix things, or come up with far-fetched schemes and ideas to make ends meet. This does not need to happen to you! There are some very reliable and simple ways to get the funds you need. By doing this you will have one less worry to keep you up at night.
Depending on the type of business you are running, different equipment and technology are necessary to make it run. No matter the business, you need to stay up-to-date with the technology you keep on hand to do whatever it is that needs to get done. If you do not do this, then your business is incapable of competing with others of its kind on the same level. The better use you make of the best technology out there to promote as well as to use within your business, the better off you will be in attracting, servicing and pleasing your clients.
Here is a story that many of you are probably familiar with. Your business is slightly struggling. You need a new piece of equipment or some other sort of advancement to help it compete with the big business chains and corporations, but the only problem is that this update to your small business does not come at a small price. To help pay for this you walk over to your local bank get all the information you will need to apply for a small business loan and get all the paperwork ready you will need for an interview you set up for at the bank’s earliest convenience. Once you are at your meeting you are nervous, you hand in all the paperwork you have diligently prepared and wait while the clerk flips through everything. Once it is validated that everything they need is there the clerk goes to a superior who decides whether you should be approved or not. Usually, you do not receive the response for a few days at minimum, but at the end of it all you usually receive a negative response – NO LOAN!
