Small budget, big benefit from good design

An article in the FSB Network Magazine explained the benefits for companies who put design at the heart of their strategies to overcome the challenges of the economic downturn.

The article gives details of the studies made by the Design Business Association (DBA), who run the Design Effectiveness Awards, proving that design can permeate all aspects of business, by improving profitability, creating new revenue streams, raising a companies profile, building brand recognition and empowering staff to deliver results.

However, it is not easy to convince businesses to see design as a vital investment rather than a cost, especially when budgets are tight.

Start Your Own Business

The Start Your Own Business website (www.syob.co.uk) is designed to help new business start ups and existing small business owners by pointing them in the direction of where help can be found locally. We work closely with a number of business support organisations, but would also like to establish a network of ‘specialists’ who are prepared to support this potentially attractive market.

If you would be willing to receive enquiries from local new business start ups, we would be delighted to promote your services. This could be a simple listing on the appropriate page, or even better, we could add you as a recommended local partner. This would entitle you to: 

  • Have your logo at the top of the page
  • Supply editorial/explanatory text
  • Include details of your services and reasons why visitors should make contact

This is completely free of charge! All that we would ask in return is for you to consider adding a reciprocal link to your site.

Although there is no guarantee that you will receive any enquiries, neither will it cost you any money!

We hope that you like the idea, if so, please contact Andy Pringle (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)) to find out more and to reserve your spot!
