Affordable funding is vital for small businesses but many who apply for the first time can find it difficult to know what is required to get the best chance of securing finance. In 2013, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills found that half of first time borrowers were rejected for finance, resulting in 37% giving up and cancelling their spending plans. By the end of this workshop you should have the information to avoid becoming one of those rejections.
This free workshop will take you step-by-step how and where to apply for finance in order to raise your chances of a successful application.
Setting The Right Price For Your Products or Services - Wednesday, 22 November 2017
Old Cleeve Community Hall, Old Cleeve, TA24 6HJ
Setting the right price for a new product or service can be one of the biggest problems faced by small business owners. Costing your product or service can be relatively straightforward, but pricing must take account of what competitors are charging and what customers will be prepared to pay, but clearly the price needs to cover all the costs and allow for a profit.
The workshop will consider practical strategies to balance the right price for your product or service and sales volumes – so that you are working towards achieving your business objectives.
