I am hoping to start up a business from home. I have spotted a gap in a market and have a small amount of capital to set it up. The business is providing hire of equipment (associated with parties). The equipment is simple, not technical or complicated. I think I will need public liability insurance, do I need any other kind of insurance?
I will get a website, I think I need one with the ability for a customer to book/pay on a calendar....are they much more complicated than a 'normal' website. I could manage bookings by phone/paper I suppose? Do I need to set up a separate bank account for the business, I would like to keep it separate if possible. I think I am able to set up as a sole trader but need to do a bit more research.
I have set up Instsgram/FB accounts and will do cards/flyers for marketing but hope to get lots of word of mouth referrals...as it will be unique to our area and a new concept.
Anything else I need to think of....I am really excited by it but a bit overwhelmed with all the practical things to get it off the ground. Any tips would be much appreciated!!
i have started a private home cleaning business on my own to fit around school hours. from deep clean to carpet cleaning plus ironing included to oven and fridge freezer cleans aswell though I've tweaked my prices don't have many clients yet but how do i tell them my prices have gone up.
Sounds very exciting, I have been using Create as a website builder for my small business (I sell bike parts) and it is super easy to get set up and you could easily add some type of booking system. They are also not too expensive compared to some others.
