Buy a van

Although the initial price or buying or renting a new van can be a hefty cost, a reliable new company van is an amazing asset to any business and definitely worth investing in. Leasing a van is a great way for small businesses to save cash and get all the benefits of having a company van without the huge costs. With a company van you’ll be able to generate more business by making timely deliveries and be able to extend your services to different areas which are further afield. A company van also means you can take your businesses along to conventions and meetings which you might not have had access to before.

Review processes

Taking time to sit down with your business partner and employees to review your processes and procedures can be really beneficial to your budget. Little things like whether you’re posting mail first class or second, which suppliers you are using and assessing whether you can cut back on the gas and electric used at your business premises can all help to cut costs. When you go through your finances you’ll be able to identify areas where savings can very easily be made.

Use Social Media

One of the best things about social media is its free to use and can work wonders for your business. As a start-up, instead of spending lots of money on expensive marketing campaigns why not put your energy into boosting your followings on social media. Most businesses generate a lot of new business from running Facebook competitions and regularly tweeting with links to their site, so it’s a great way to attract new customers without having to spend a lot of money. If you encourage people to share and like your posts you’ll become much more visible to new customers too.

There are so many ways to keep your costs down as a business owner if you take the time to carefully think about budgeting and identify areas where you can afford to cut back, you’ll be able to make valuable savings in no time.
