Online service helps small firms with business management

Small-business owners can access free advice on securing finance, reducing risk and finding new customers, following the launch of a new website by Experian.

The Small Business Services site includes advice for start-ups and business owners in three main areas – management, finance and finding new customers – delivered through checklists, guides and video content.

Topics covered range from cashflow management and recruitment to increasing web traffic and managing suppliers.

β€œIn order to continue to grow, small and medium-sized enterprises need to use effective online marketing, by harnessing the latest tools and tactics to increase their visitor numbers, raise their profile and help source new customers,” said Experian UK SME director Simon Streat.
