Business Guides Categories
Automotive The automotive industry can be complex and covers businesses as diverse as spare parts through to detailing. One thing remains the same, however. Australia is a country which relies heavily on motor vehicles for transport and as such, businesses in this industry will always be in demand.
Building & Construction The building and construction industry can be tough. It is often subject to “boom or bust” periods and careful management is required as well as a commitment to quality work in order to survive in this business. Handling costs is key as well as a flexible workloads and watching your overheads. Pricing is also another factor.
Business Planning In order for your business to succeed, you must start planning, not just at its inception but also throughout your business life. A good business plan becomes a business' “blueprint” and can mean the difference between success and failure. Most businesses don't plan to fail, they fail to plan.
Business Services One of the main targets of many businesses is other businesses. The business market can be very lucrative and this is particularly true of the business service industry. If you aim to tap into this particular industry, then you will need the correct and timely information as it can be a difficult market to break into.
Buying a Franchise If you are looking for a business that has a “tried and proven” success record in the marketplace, then franchising could be the perfect option for you. Find out why franchising is becoming the preferred option for many when it comes to purchasing a business.
Child Related Services There's no doubt about it - children are expensive and their needs constantly change, depending on their ages. This is good news for businesses which focus on child related services. Parents want the best for their children and they are prepared to pay for it. As a business in this industry, you can take advantage of this constant need and offer a service which can quickly become indispensable.
Computers Love them or hate them, no one can survive in today's world without a computer. Computers are the backbone of most businesses and have become almost as prevalent in the home. This is a very dynamic industry and although the computer industry is undoubtedly here to stay, it is constantly evolving and businesses have to evolve with it in order to survive.
Financial Services Money - every body wants it but few know how to get it and once they do, how to manage it effectively. That is why the financial services industry is in demand both in the “good” times and the “bad.” And this is not just for financial advisers but also a range of other businesses from valuers to debt collectors.
Food & Hospitality In today's busy world, people often look for ways to relax and enjoy themselves which doesn't involve them having to do anything themselves. The food and hospitality industry fills this need perfectly from a quick “fix” at a lunch bar to enjoying a drink at the local pub.
General Management Managing your business effectively is key to achieving long term success. A good management strategy will enable you to not only maintain your business but also to grow. The products available in this section will enable to take charge of your business and make it work for you. It can mean the difference between just surviving and thriving!
Getting Your Business Online With the surge of businesses having their own Web sites, now is the time to consider putting your own business online. It can be a relatively inexpensive way of reaching a mass market while at the same time, becoming an effective marketing tool. However, if done incorrectly, it can also be detrimental to your business.
Medical Services With Australia's population rapidly aging, the medical services industry is becoming more and more crucial. However, the increasing demand for services and the overburdened system has created its own problems as has the insurance crisis. It is getting harder for the industry to work efficiently and profitably in this environment.
Other The products in this section will provide you with the tools and resources necessary to succeed in your particular business and industry.
Personal Services The personal services industry needs a high commitment to customer service as businesses in this industry in particular will succeed or fail based on how they deal and interact with their clients. In this business, it must be service with a capital S!
Residential Services The residential services industry largely focuses on the home but can be very diverse. Businesses range from a home renovation service through to pet sitting and there is no end to the opportunities available in this particular industry. It just takes ingenuity and persistence.
Retail Business The retail industry is perhaps one of the biggest industries in Australia and has the widest variety of businesses from small corner delis to large retail chains. But regardless of the size and the particular business, they all have one thing in common - trying to predict what their markets want in order to make the best possible profit.
Sales & Marketing Regardless of what type of business you own, there is one thing it can't live without - sales and marketing. This is the lifeblood of your business and without it, your business will not be able to sustain itself, let alone grow. You need to ensure that you have the right strategies and promotions that will work for your individual business because advertising by itself is not always the answer.
Service Industry As the name suggests, to be a success in the service industry, you must supply second-to-none customer service. Without it, your customers will quickly find a competitor who is willing to offer better service and often at a more expensive price. This is an industry where price can become secondary to the service. In many cases, customers are willing to pay more in order to get the “best.”
Starting an Online Business Starting an online business can be the cheapest option when it comes to a new business but it can also be the most difficult and both for the same reason. An online business basically only exists online and while that will cut your costs when it comes to overheads, it also means you won't have customers just “walking” by and stopping on impulse.
