New Business Startup Health Check

New Business Startup Health Check

Thanks to funding from West Devon Borough Council, we’ve put together a FREE online health check webinar for your new business.

Starting a business is often a very exciting and busy time, particularly in the early stages. Having got your business idea off the ground, it’s a good idea to take a step back, take stock and evaluate your next steps. This is often a critical time for any business, when you need to start attracting customers, develop a plan for growth and make sure nothing has been overlooked in the flurry of activity when launching your startup.

In this 2-hour session, one of our experienced business advisors will take you through a checklist to guide you through the early stages of your business and help develop a roadmap for the future.

We’ll cover:

  • Effective market research techniques and identifying your target audience.
  • Marketing strategies to attract (and keep) your first customers.
  • Developing a strong marketing plan for business growth.
  • Understanding profit vs revenue.
  • Financial forecasting, budgeting, and setting financial objectives.
  • Loans and borrowing.
  • Understanding and managing VAT.
  • Using a SWOT analysis to understand your market and plan for the future.
  • How to price your products or services to maximise revenue.
  • Using online accounting software to manage your accounts and self-assessment tax.

It is a live and interactive session, so questions are more than welcome at any point.
