Early Steps To Take for a Long-Lasting Business

Starting a new business means juggling many responsibilities — not only for your livelihood but for that of your partners and employees. Administrative duties aren’t the most glitzy or appealing parts of the business. But if you develop effective and reliable methods to get them done — like these from Cymru Marketing — you’ll be closer to launching a successful business.

What, exactly, are the least appealing but most important behind-the-scenes tasks you need to do for your young business?

Banking Matters: Accounting and Payroll

From the moment your business launches and years into its lifecycle, you want to have organized, thoroughly documented financial data. As SmallBizDaily points out, accounting information helps you analyze your business’s performance, and it’s important for filing taxes — errors or missed deadlines in your business’s taxes can result in penalties. As your business grows, so will your accounting needs, so you may decide to hire an accountant or use software to take care of the books.

Similarly, a meticulous payroll system will serve you well both in the early days of your business and after it’s fully established. If your payroll taxes aren’t managed correctly, you may incur penalties, so look for a service that offers penalty protection.

The ideal small biz software apps will also streamline other payment processes to save you time, like employee time tracking, fast direct deposit, and automatic payroll calculation with all the payroll forms applied correctly.

Getting Your Start-Up on Its Feet: Funding Options

Accounting and payroll are financial processes that come into play only when your organization has actually secured funding. Funding is perhaps the most basic requirement of having any kind of business, notes Think Latitude, so even if it’s not an appealing part of the work, it is a priority. There are many ways to go about financing your enterprise, each with different advantages.

If you’re starting a business that has a chance at explosive growth, you may consider seeking out venture capital funding from investors. If investors choose to work with you, they can be a huge help in providing the money (“seed capital”) you need to launch your business. They’ll also most likely become members of your company or have some portion of ownership in the business.

Other strategies for funding a new business are crowdfunding, an internet-based effort, or self-financing, which means that you pay the expenses of starting the business yourself and own the business in its entirety.

The Organization at Its Core: Choosing the Operational Structure

One way to approach the need for funding, and the structure of your business as a whole, is by choosing the type of operational structure you’ll be running. Several options are available, including forming a limited company, a sole trader, a partnership, or a limited liability partnership (LLP).

Each type of organization comes with its own set of pros and cons, all dependent on what’s the best fit for your business. For instance, the LLP structure offers both immediate and long-term advantages: It limits personal liability in cases of debt or bankruptcy and is pretty easy to create and operate either on your own, with a lawyer, or through a service.

Starting a business is one of the most exciting career steps you can take, and streamlining the chores of getting started leaves more room for you to enjoy yourself. When technical tasks aren’t stressing you out or slowing you down, you can focus on perfecting the product or service that you set out to share with the world, celebrating what you’ve accomplished alongside your team, and maybe even taking time off.

www.MarketingCardiff.com

www.MARKETINGCARDIFF.com

I am pleased to announce that I have acquired www.marketingcardiff.com by a fluke.

It was not available last year as I am always looking for ways to generate more traffic, so I was surprised to see it on the IONOS marketplace and had to grab it.

SEO Link Wheel.

I am happy I have the dot com as I will have no use for any other domain extension, just in case anyone approached me regarding the .co.uk just saying… Furthermore, if someone then decides to develop the co.uk version there may be a reason to start a UDRP.

Website Development.

It is what came first the chicken or the egg scenario. I developed a website on a dot com (king of domains) long before any other counterpart.

Branding.

This domain will serve as another cog to my ever-expanding SEO link wheel. This domain is a keeper as it has played on my mind whenever I say ‘Cymru’ not everyone I speak to knows what the word means. It is the Welsh Word for Wales and as well as people not knowing how to pronounce it let alone spell it, may also find difficulty remembering it. Hence that is why I am excited to add an addition to my lead generation marketing strategies.

Obviously, the site is not fully developed as I only acquired it today but over the next few weeks, time permitting, I will build this site to accompany my default sites.

I have also kept my ‘Cymru Marketing’ Logo Initials where the (CM) stands for Cymru Marketing, whereas now the initials are reversed to Marketing Cardiff (MC). However had I re-designed the initials the M letter does not sit right on the letter C, hence I have left the lettering the same. As long as I get the traffic what’s a couple of letters in a logo. If anything it makes the logo even more unique and talked about after all ‘Cymru Marketing’ is here to stay and it will always be one of my default websites, with ‘Marketing Cardiff’ as an add-on.

The way I see it the logo is recognizable it has been around for a few years and people who recognize and relate to an image can memorize images symbols and logos far quicker than remembering words. People will see the logo and see it as a trustworthy source, so why confuse people with more than one logo, at the end of the day it is a personal preference and my decision. If anything the logo says that ‘Cymru Marketing Brand ‘ is behind ‘Marketing Cardiff’.

One has to remember that exact match searchable keywords and phrases domain names will rank your website far quicker and will secure global positioning providing you do your SEO correctly.

Having brandable made-up words, acronyms or personal brand names needs extensive Advertising and PR, whilst having searchable words people actively search for will save you money in the long run. Choose your domain names carefully and if you need some help with your SEO link wheel we will be happy to give you some free advice and do a free SEO audit report of your website.

As an example I have my own personal brand domain name www.renataentrepreneur.com but if people do not know who you are and have never heard of you before they are not going to be searching for you. Fortunately for me, I have been around for donkeys’ years so I am well known in certain circles.

Even if you are ranked for keywords that you have assigned in your meta description people are less likely to view your site as opposed to the and exact match searchable keyword or phrase domain name. You would have to be well known or a household name which can take a long time to achieve before people started to search for you.

Valuation.

The domain name www.marketingcardiff.com on estibot.com is according to the bot worth less than $100 but on Godaddy Appraisal Tool it is worth $904

To be honest, I rarely use these bots and whenever I am appraising a domain name. I do my calculations based on Google Keyword Planner and how many searches per month and the cost of the PPC bids would be. I then can advise that having a certain domain name would save the investor in advertising costs.

However, if the domain name has equity such as a product, service, website, and assets then you are talking about a different ball game, and even though I have no intention to sell this domain name my equity which these bots do not know about will increase the value.

40 Ways To Get More Business.

Advertising & Marketing.

40 Ways to Get More Business.

I have decided today to take a leaf out of my own book and practice what I preach.

With that said I am going to develop a directory of businesses and forums on my site where people can come and hang out. It is in the beta stage at the moment, watch this space.

I may even start a local periodical magazine.

There is a saying ‘If the mountain will not come to Muhammad, then Muhammad must go to the mountain‘ arises from the story of Muhammad, as retold by Francis Bacon, in Essays, 1625: Mahomet called the Hill to come to him. … If the mountain will not come to Mahomet, Mahomet will go to the mountain.

In other words get people to come to you, rather than you going to them. Moving one stone at a time you will eventually move the mountain.

  1. Design and market a business blog. In fact I have several and use them as part of my SEO link wheel. Once you have decided what your blog is about you need to have categories of different topics people actively search for and want help with. Tip use keywords in your categories.
  2. Guest Blog on other peoples blogs. This will create backlinks back to your default site. Ask bloggers in your LinkedIn contacts if they would be happy publishing your articles. Find Blogs similar to your niche and gust blog post there.
  3. Write posts on groups and social media pages. It is a good idea to also have your own group and pages.
  4. Online Social Media advertising, you can have a Video or Squeeze pages which can help increase your total number of conversions while providing you with enough information needed to nurture leads into sales. This applies to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
  5. Adwords, obviously you need a budget for this and Google often do promotional incentives for first time users such as get £75.00 free credit if you spend £25.00
  6. LinkedIn Ads are similar to Google Ads the only difference is your LinkedIn ads will only be visible on LinkedIn. However because LinkedIn is a Business Platform this by far one of the best ways to connect and network.
  7. Offer online courses and sell your courses on site like UDEMY. Obviously the best place to sell is on your own websites and social media platforms. Put to together a “how to” course and teach people a trade.
  8. Local Workshops are a good way to network and get like minded people together. This can be done online although pending lockdown restrictions regulations this can also be a physical place to meet.
  9. Business Listings, if you already registered with Google My Business you should, make Google your friend and they will track you and rank you faster.
  10. List your business with all the main business directories, like Yell, Yelp. 192 etc.
  11. List your business on classified websites such as Cardiff Free Ads. Just type into Google search, Classified ads and you will get your answer through the search results.
  12. List your Business on Business Forums and Community websites.
  13. Post articles on Quora and Reddit.
  14. Post Articles on all you social media pages consistantly otherwise people lose interest and the more times your brand is visible the more popular you will become.
  15. Events. If you like talking, why not speak at events, talk about your product, brand, story.
  16. Host a conference, get people to come to you and get them networking.
  17. Partner with a competitor, that way you can help each other.
  18. Partner with a non competing business, that may benefit your skills.
  19. Go to Networking Events Hosted by Other people, this can be online and physical.
  20. Ask for referrals. Start with family and friends and ask them to share your business cards and social media shares with their connections, you will be surprised how many people will get to see your business. Gettting referrals and utilizing your network can be a quick and easy way to score more client projects.
  21. Set up a suppliers page on your blog/website and get people to advertise.
  22. Set up an affiliate marketing program and get other people to promote your business in exchange for a commission.
  23. Start a competition and get people to enter their details for a chance to win a prize.
  24. Giveaways, give an ebook away about your niche in exchange for an email, everyone loves to get something for free. Give branded merchandise away.
  25. Consider outbound marketing and contact people that may be interested in your product or service.
  26. Editorial Advertising, put an ad in a newspaper or periodical.
  27. Leaflet/pamphlet advertising and post them in your neighbourhood.
  28. Notice Boards in Supermarkets and coffeeshops, leave your business card or small leaflet. Leave your merchandise, keyfobs, pens, handsanitisers, pin badges, balloons, mini notebooks (This depends on your advertising budget).
  29. Wear branded clothing that has your website address visible in bold, this is advertising on the go.
  30. Design a magazine and get businesses to advertise.
  31. Have an advertising banner on your car you can get magnetic banners.
  32. Gift your family, friends and neighbours with branded merchandise such as fridge magnets, pens, key fobs, mini notebooks, branded facemasks. Give things that people will use rather than throw away.
  33. Give a trial offer to your product or service. If you give something for free your are giving people the opportunity to test and trust you.
  34. Sponsor an event or auction off something using advertising, marketing strategies.
  35. Get your brand in the news get journalist to write about you.
  36. Video Marketing, you need to be professional and make your videos top notch. I do not mean tik tok style. If it looks like you have spent money on video advertising it will look like you are successful.
  37. Vlogging, this a good way to have brand awareness, get your staff to contribute. Have a video the day in the life of driving instructor or graphic designer etc. People like to have some sort of idea how you manage a business which may give them inspiration.
  38. Influencers are people that use social media platforms to promote, their products or other peoples products and service. Hire models and take photos and videos of them using your products or services and then share on all the platforms or get influencers to promote your products or services for you.
  39. Write a book about your business or if you do not know where to start hire a writer that will write the book for you and then send it to businesses that may find your book useful. (You could have a book the day in the life of a …….).
  40. Do a publicity stunt, publicity stunts are an organised events designed to attract the public’s attention to the event’s organizers or their cause. Be unique and amaze your audience with a well thought through campaign.

Final Thoughts.

Nothing happens overnight, however, if you concentrate on social media and post banner ads eventually people will like and share and even buy. Be patient, stay focused and be consistent.
