'Be realistic' when growing a business


Starting and growing a business on a budget is not easy.



Organisations need to keep on top of their overheads as they seek to attract trade without having to commit too much money.


This can throw up a number of challenges in itself, but no one should find themselves in the position where they are literally minding the pennies.


Helen Lindop, a business expert at Sage, noted small firms need to be open-minded, especially when it comes to ideas and opportunities.


She added business owners should make sure every aspect of their company looks professional, from the logo to the business cards and website.


If you do not have the skills to complete certain tasks – such as copywriting or graphic design – then do not be afraid to seek outside help.


Ultimately, firms should be realistic with their aims and recognise that growth has be steady at the start, especially if it is going to last in the long-term.
