Commercial Loans – Take All Aspects In Consideration

As the saying goes, taking a loan is easier than surviving with it. A shrewd businessman is one who borrow but with an eye to repay it as soon as possible. Sometimes, business requirements arise because you get a new business order hat is hard to manage within your own business funds. You obviously cannot afford to lose big business opportunity only because the funds are not there.

These and other similar situations force you to take help of external sources of financing. These sources may be temporary or permanent, depending on the nature of funding. Large body corporate often have huge financial needs, and therefore, they resort to public financing by inviting deposits or going for a ‘rights issue’ meant for the existing shareholders. On the other hand, a new business concern or sole proprietorship undertaking would obviously not be able to take benefit of that sort – neither are these meant for them.

Before applying for commercial loans, first of all decide the type of debt financing that your business firm will be comfortably able to get. If you do not own any property in the name of firm, secured commercial business loans are out of question. You will have to rely on loans that do not require any security. These loans will offer you a limited amount – upto £25,000. The interest rate is likely to be little more than what you can get by pledging some property. The amount of loan that you can qualify for can be increased by involving some property in the loan transaction.

Brilliant Business Ideas: Turn Useless By-Products Into Cash

Anybody who is looking for brilliant business ideas needs to study the life of a man called Henry Ford, the founder of the Ford Motor Corporation.In case you don’t know who this man is, Henry Ford was the inventor of the Ford Model T – the first mass-produced automobile in the world. The man literally invented the assembly line which is used in industries all over the world today. The assembly line invention was significant because it enabled Ford to increase production and produce many more cars than before.But what I want to focus this post on was another business he was involved in which very few people took interest in. This business genius took the wood scraps that were left over from the production of his Model T’s and turned them into charcoal briquettes (used in cooking and heating).This “side venture” (built off of by-products) became so profitable that he built a separate charcoal plant and founded the Ford Charcoal Company, which was later renamed Kingsford.There are obvious by-products or waste that are generated by many enterprises. To give an example, there is saw dust which is generated by sawmills. This can be put to a lot of profitable use. For instance it can manufacture particleboard and even fireplace logs.It is said that every art of creation has a byproduct which means that whatever business you are doing or want to do is sure to generate “waste” which is actually a byproduct that you can turn into huge profits.A few of the brilliant business start-up ideas in my book involve making huge profits from byproducts and they don’t have to be your own byproducts. I hope that gets you thinking in the right direction.But let me tell you another true story from right here in Kenya about a company that made huge profits from the waste it was generating.Everybody knows about Nation newspapers. The company publishes the highest circulating daily newspaper in the region. A few years ago they had a serious problem. The price of oil, as always was on the rise and the cost of distributing their newspapers was growing alarmingly. The waste they generated was the extra space in the huge pick up vans that remained when the newspapers were packed to be delivered to various towns and destinations. There was even more “waste” when the van came back from delivering the newspapers virtually empty. What a waste.And so they devised a way to turn the “waste” or by-product into huge sums of money. They launched a courier service to deliver letters and packages all over the country. They called the company Nation couriers. Immediately they had a huge advantage because newspapers are delivered daily and they usually have a very tight delivery schedule because daily newspapers are perishable products that must be delivered on time. Today’s newspaper cannot be sold tomorrow. It has to be sold today and preferably early in the day. And so Nation courier could promise it’s customers that the package will reach it’s destination without fail the next morning.This brand new overnight courier service created from a “waste product” has made huge profits for the Nation media group and also makes their newspaper delivery very efficient.Take a closer look around you.What is being wasted?Can you turn it into profits?

How To Launch A New Online Business Product – A 4-Pronged Approach For Guaranteed Success

If you have an online business, you are more than likely trying to figure out how to launch a new product to the marketplace. Now there are many ways to “launch” a product, but there is a trick I’ve been using for a while that is similar to a launch, and I call it a “perpetual launch”. What this strategy does is it introduces each one of your leads to a launch sequence within your email list so that as soon as they opt-in they are exposed to your product launch.

Now this is a great way to introduce any product, but I’ve found it to be most effective for products that are higher in cost, and ideally those that are a couple hundred dollars or more.

Now, if you like the idea of exposing each new lead to the same sort of “launch sequence”, then I will give you a quick rundown of exactly how you can implement this strategy into your own online business:

Step 1 – Create a teaser-product that introduces the product to be launched

Whatever your product is about, you want to create a product that is sort of a “teaser”, meaning it gives valuable information and is related to your product to be launched. What this does is it provides value to the customer who is looking for it, and for those who happen to stumble upon it, it will let them know that maybe they do in-fact need the product.

Step 2 – Build credibility for 5-7 days through your email autoresponder

After your lead has downloaded your free teaser product, embark on a campaign to build your credibility for 5-7 days. You can do this by sending content-rich emails or by sending them some of your other products that have lots of value. The ultimate goal of this week-long campaign is to educate your subscriber and also let them know that you are the expert in your field.

Step 3 – Hint at the product around day 7 then create buzz for 3-5 days

Send an email telling them that you are putting the finishing touches on your product to be launched, then give them a look at what it is and how it will benefit them in their own lives. This can be done with a report or better yet a short video.

Step 4 – Launch the product

After you have created some buzz about your product, proven that it is effective, and built anticipation, it is time to release it. A fantastic way to generate sales quickly is to release a limited amount of your product or to give the first few buyers a deep discount.
