What makes a
Never stop investigating
ways to improve all areas of your business. The astute businessperson will seek
information to assist him or her in making the changes necessary to stay profitable
in a competitive business world.
Here are some ideas
that could improve your profits:
Before you start a new business, be sure the community can support such
a business. Some areas are not large enough to warrant certain specialty
shops. A bicycle shop, for example, may take a population base of 50,000
people to make it profitable. A grocery store, on the other hand, can
be profitable in a town of only a few thousand.
review business proposals
Business deals and special franchises which sound too good to be true
usually are. We will gladly assist you in reviewing any business purchase
or business proposal.
the services of professionals
Accountants, bankers, insurance agents and lawyers can help you solve
your business problems. These professionals handle a variety of business
problems every day. They make excellent sounding boards for proposed transactions.
reasons for incorporating
Don't incorporate your business without first checking the long-range
tax and nontax considerations. There are many small corporations that
would have been better off operating in some other legal form.
payroll deposits on time
Some businesses receive penalties for late payroll tax deposits. To avoid
such problems, don't sign payroll checks unless the first check in the
stack is the payroll deposit to your bank. This may have you paying deposits
earlier than required, but you will not be receiving penalties.
to your customers
You are not only selling products or services, you are selling customer
satisfaction. Satisfied customers return to spend more money and are likely
to refer new customers to you.
to retain customers
It is estimated to cost ten times as much to acquire a new customer as
it does to retain a current customer through good customer service.
make yourself indispensable
If your company runs well now in your absence, it will run well in the
event of your disability or death. If you are currently indispensable,
start training people now. One of the most rewarding forms of retirement
is to own your own company and to be absent as much as you like.
