At some point, every business will seek financial assistance to support some type of goal or company initiative. While funding is an incredibly important aspect of business growth, that’s not all it takes in order to succeed today. It also requires access to business growth services that help to boost sales, cut costs, streamline operations, and reduce risk.
Whereas only the largest and most successful corporations used to be the only ones that could afford to seek help through big firms, this is no longer the case.
Thanks to different legal, marketing, operations, and insurance services that are offered by companies like National, businesses of all sizes within any industry can now access the same resources as those global, billion-dollar corporations, but at a higher service level and lower cost.
80% of small businesses survive their first year. But only about 50% of small businesses making it past the five-year mark!

A solid marketing plan is sometimes all you need to take your small business to the next level. Update your logo, optimize your website, share quality content on social media, and run effective ads to capture, engage, and convert your target audience into ideal clients.
Save time, money, and effort by simplifying the way your team conducts business and works every day. There are so many ways to streamline your daily workload that you may not be taking advantage of as often as you should.

Finding and working with a mentor can help you avoid making common entrepreneurial mistakes that can hold your business back. Mentors have been there, done that and bought the metaphorical t-shirt. They can offer valuable advice as you navigate the sometimes-choppy waters of business ownership.
A mentor can be a business owner you look up to, a contact provided by a group like SCORE or a knowledgeable online source. Getting objective advice on how to strengthen your business model, improve processes and connect better with customers increases your chances of success significantly above those of non-mentored businesses.
Reducing risk is a vital part of any business strategy. Make sure that your company is protected from any and all risks that it can run into by securing the best possible legal framework and insurance.

Customers are the heart of your business. Connect with more of them using simple, effective marketing tools to spread your brand message.
Seventy-two percent of people conducting local searches choose to visit stores within five miles of their current locations. So, local marketing is essential for any brick-and-mortar business relying on foot traffic. Claiming and optimizing your Google My Business (GMB) page increases visibility in local search results and can lead to a significant boost in local traffic.
Reviews add a great deal of credibility to your brand and are an important part of your GMB listing. Customers searching for local businesses want to know who has the best products and services to meet their needs, and 70 to 80 percent look at the top five organic results instead of paid ads to find their answers. If you’re near the top with a fantastic collection of stellar feedback, guess who they’re going to pick?
Email marketing is a quick and easy way to connect with existing customers and engaged members of your target audience. Unlike social media, where algorithms can bury your messages before anyone sees them, email is a direct line from your business to an interested group of warm leads ready to take advantage of the offers you send their way.
MailChimp is one of the most popular email marketing solutions and provides an impressive variety of tools to make your campaigns stand out. You can use segmentation to send the most relevant information and promotions to subgroups of your audience and set up automations to be triggered when someone signs up for your list, has a birthday or clicks on a link in an existing campaign. After you’ve sent a few messages, check the analytics from each campaign for ideas to improve your email marketing techniques in the future.
