If you’ve been interested in starting your own commercial finance business, you might have felt overwhelmed by the thought of diving headfirst into something new. As a business that can have a profound impact on the life cycle of other businesses, feeling confident in your beginnings is crucial to long-term success.
Create a plan.
Business plans are a great way to outline the processes and goals you plan to work with and achieve in your business. The more detailed, the better, as you should be able to reference this plan throughout your business’s life – not to mention, having a business plan to show potential partners or investors is never a bad thing!
Make packages for every type of client.
Even though every client is going to be slightly different than the next (and thus need an entirely different approach to their financing), it can be helpful to be able to show potential clients examples of your packages so that they can visualize what it can do for them. Throughout every package, you should be keeping your target client in mind.
Consider how you’ll find your clients.
Clients can’t use you if they don’t know about you… and that’s where marketing comes into play. What type of marketing strategies you use is up to you, although you should really pay attention to where your target client is and how you can reach them specifically. When you’re just starting out, expect to try a few different things at a time to see what fits your business.
