It is said that the best way to increase your business’ profits is to cut your costs by saving your money as much as possible. There are many different ways to do this, some of which I will highlight below.
- The first way to save your business money is to advertise on absolutely everything from invoices to putting leaflets or promotions in people’s purchases. Advertising online is another cheap way of making your business known. You can ask people you know to refer your business and even give them leaflets to advertise at their own shop or business if they have one too.
- Instead of investing money into trying to get new customers. Focus on increasing customer retention by improving customer satisfaction. You can do this by prioritising customer service. You could also offer customers who have already bought from you, special discounts to encourage them to shop again.
- If you have your own courier service or fleet to deliver or transport products or items for your business, you can save money on their journey and the petrol they’ll need by giving each driver a fuel card. You can pick which petrol stations they can go to, and it will be a lot more secure than giving them cash.

- Another way to save your business money is by only buying used equipment, and free software. Of course, there are some pitfalls to this as it can be more expensive in the long term if they don’t work as efficiently as you need them to. However, if you know what to look for, you could get a good money saving deal.
