Secrets of Success: How To Make Your Business Look Bigger

Perception is important when it comes to business. While a smaller business can be seen as being efficient and personal, if the business is considered to be too small then it can miss out on larger contracts and deals as clients can infer that the business is not big enough to handle it. In business, size is often perceived as a sign of success (despite the truth often not reflecting this).

If you’ve found this to be the case, what can you do to get your business to be taken more seriously? A good way is to alter perceptions of your company by taking a few simple steps to make your start-up appear bigger.

Be professional online

A great way to get your business taken seriously right from the start is to make sure your business launches with a great website. A startling number of businesses don’t have a website and that often shows browsers that your company is on the smaller side. Find a great local website designer and start your business on its way to a professional online image.

Once you have a website, you’ll also be able to have a company email address. When networking with other business owners, using hotmail or gmail addresses can really let you down. Make sure your email is something like:

Choose the right company name

Trading under your own name might be a big mistake, as it immediately shows you up as a sole trader. If you would like to register your limited company and start being taken more seriously, why not register today using our online company formation service?

Avoid telephone tells

Avoid your company being geographically pigeonholed by getting an 033 number. Alternatively, why not use a professional telephone answering service or pay for a prestigious city number to forward on to your own phone? Using your mobile number also gives the impression of being small, so look into using a Skype number instead.

Pick the perfect address

Network like a pro

Networking is a must for any business but when it comes to exchanging business cards, make sure your cards measure up. Instead of just having your name on the card, make sure it also has your job title, business address, professional email, telephone number that isn’t a mobile, and website address.
