6 Resources That Can Help Your Small Business

 

Do you want to make your new small business as successful as possible? Read on for some useful resources for every step of the way.

1. Small Business Administration

If you need help financing a major business purchase, the SBA can also help you get a loan. That way, you will be able to buy a bunch of inventory or commercial real estate. Each business is slightly different, and the SBA has plenty of resources to help. It's great for first-time business owners and serial entrepreneurs.

2. SCORE

SCORE is a partner of the SBA, and it has a network of business experts. These experts work as volunteers to help other business owners get started and grow. There are over 300 chapters and a total of more than 10,000 volunteers that can help.

You can go through training programs or get individual counseling as you start and grow your business. And you'll get access to business tools through SCORE. As you learn more, you can give back to other business owners and become a volunteer. Either way, SCORE is a great tool for new and experienced entrepreneurs.

3. Your Own Sales System

While using resources from organizations can help, you can also set up resources that help within your business. Setting up a sales system will make it easier for you and your sales team to keep track of leads each step of the way. Then, you can know who you've contacted and who you need to email or call.

A sales management system is crucial for bigger businesses. But you should have one ready from the start. That way, you can keep it the same as you grow your company. And you won't have to waste time setting it up and training people, potentially costing you sales.

4. Coworking Spaces

If you have a small team or everyone works remotely, consider using a coworking space. Of course, coworking spaces give you a place to work outside of the house. But they can also offer valuable resources to help your business.

You can get a meeting room to use when you need to talk to employees or clients in person. Or you can simply access the main work areas as needed. Some coworking spaces even have networking events, so you can meet other business owners in your area. Then, you can build up a client base if people need your services.

5. Later

Any business needs a good social media presence. It doesn't matter if you have a brick-and-mortar shop or an online store. Without active social media accounts, you'll struggle to reach your ideal customers. Luckily, Later is a free social media scheduling tool that works with Instagram, Facebook, and more.

You can also learn about social media by reading Later's blog. They post regularly and share information about updates to Instagram and social media. If you want your business to make the most of different social platforms, the blog is a fantastic resource.

6. LegalZoom

You should also know where to find legal help when you need it, and LegalZoom is a great option. The company's goal is to make legal help easier to access. They offer services for both businesses and individuals, so it's a great place for all of your legal needs.

If you can't afford to hire a lawyer, you can get help with things like business structures, taxes, and trademarks. That way, you can protect your business and your business ideas. And you don't need to vet tons of lawyers and hope you choose one who can help with your needs.

A small business can be a great way to make money. But running one isn't always easy. Keep these resources in mind as you start and grow your next venture.
