5 essential services for startup businesses
- February 11, 2020
Starting your own business can be quite a challenge. In order to succeed you need to be independent and confident, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t ask for help. That’s why our Gold Coast team have put together a list of essential services to help you get your business off the ground.
If you want to build your small business, then you’ll need as many connections as you can get. Join digital networking services (such as LinkedIn and relevant Facebook groups) to broaden your digital contacts. You should also attend as many networking and small business events as possible so you can meet likeminded entrepreneurs and connect with potential clients, mentors and vendors.
To help your business to stand out from the crowd, you’ll need to focus on increasing your online visibility. The best way to achieve this is with integrated Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). SEO agencies, like Gold Coast based agency Media 93, can help you increase the quality and quantity of your website traffic and brand visibility by optimising your website and social media marketing.
The costs of starting and maintaining a business are complicated and without proper management, your finances can spiral out of control quickly. That’s why it’s important to find a trusted accountant, like Gold Coast based Dean and Cooper, that can help you set and maintain your budgets and ensure your profits always exceed your overheads. Accountants can also assist in loan acquisition, bookkeeping and lodging annual tax returns.
Human resources (HR) are an essential part of any business. A HR manager can handle your recruiting, hiring and training, as well as managing employee relations, salaries, appraisals and payroll. HR professionals can also help establish and maintain workplace organisation and culture.
Every start up business needs legal guidance. Before going into business, you should enlist a lawyer to give you startup advice and help you with ABN and business name registration. Lawyers can also help you develop structuring documents, secure business purchases and navigate lease agreements. They can also draw up employment contracts for founding members and employees and ensure all of your practices comply with federal and state laws in your industry.
