How to Build a Small Business in London

July 06, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 176

Building a business can be very tough indeed. When you're starting out you'll be working long hours and will have a load to organise and think about. If your business is in London then you have an even harder job. With roughly 16,000 businesses operating in the capital there's stiff competition. Follow these tips to give yourself a flying head start.

Get your business in London directories

Directory listings are a useful tool to get extra exposure for your business. There are many print based local directories available throughout the capital city such as the Yellow Pages or Thomson Local. However, the best way to gain exposure is to list your business in online directories. There are dozens of business directory websites that focus solely on businesses operating in London. A great one is Londonnet, but there are plenty of others. Most of the online directories that focus on the London area are free to use. Many also offer premium options where you can feature advertisements and include extra details and pictures in your listings. When you're trying to build your business, this can be a perfect way to capture the attention of a wider target audience.

Get your business online Nowadays people use the internet as their first resource. Cyberspace is full of useful information and is much quicker to use than other outdated search methods. Searches for businesses in London are extremely common, after all, there are 7.7 million people living in the capital, most having the internet. If you don't have a website then you're missing a potentially huge market and will soon fall behind your competitors.

Use conference rooms in London

This is highly important if you need to have regular business meetings. It is even more important when you are starting out in business. London conference venues are plentiful and found in all districts, from London Bridge to Hammersmith. Using conference centres gives you a much more professional image and is great for meeting clients in a pleasant location. You'll have access to all of the state-of-the-art equipment needed to make a memorable meeting. When building your business, using meeting rooms is especially important as you'll want to impress any potential clients you meet. There are a few London conference centres that focus especially on small businesses and mobile workers. These centres often offer reduced rates or special pricing tariffs that are suited to the small business owner.

Hubworking are one of these London conference centres that are aimed at supporting small businesses. They are competitively priced and offer a range of meeting options.
