One of the factors that determines a small business’ failure or success is its willingness to seek advice from experts.
Too many SME owners try to cope alone, only to fail because nobody can be an expert at every aspect of
MoneyOne recent survey commissioned by an accountancy firm suggests that 1 in 4 SME owners loses sleep because they’re stressed out by money worries.
Struggling to keep track of company money, and concerned that hiring more staff to grow their business will also mean implementing complex payroll systems, some small business owners simply soldier on without getting help. Don’t be one of them. Talk to an expert to get your money organised and you’ll soon feel back in full control.
SalesEverybody seems to be concerned about sales. A whole range of surveys come up with the same answers: you need more customers and you need to sell more to each customer. The problem is that you can’t quite see the path from here to there.
Again, this is the type of problem that needs outside assistance. It’s amazing how often small business owners try to manage everything almost single-handed when there are many simple, functional alternatives to wrestling with the problem alone. If you’re not a sales and marketing expert, you can’t expect to boost sales as much as an expert would. So find an expert you can use for help with planning and executing your sales strategy.
SecurityOne of the biggest security stresses for many small business owners is cyber security. Another survey reported that 87% of SMEs in the UK experienced a cyber security breach in 2012, and that number is likely to rise if business owners don’t put solid security measures in place for their businesses.
Unless you’re a technological genius, you often simply have to take on trust that your IT security is sufficient. And that means you need to find reputable IT services you can rely on to take care of all the usual security requirements without any mistakes.
