Business Tips Corner - - Things to consider when you are choosing a location for your business.

Business Tips Corner!
By: Dr. Cheryl Cottle

Be sure to drop in every week on a Thursday to view tips that would help you in your journey to successful entrepreneurship.

This week's tips are: 
  1. First find out whether your type of business is permitted in the area according to zoning laws.
  2. Make sure that your business location is accessible to allow your customers and employees easy access.
  3. Consider the surrounding community. Can the community support your business? Does it attract your niche market?
  4. Carefully choose whether you would have a ground floor location for your business or a second floor. Customers generally find it easiest to just walk in off the street. If you choose a second floor, make sure that you advertise to attract customers to your store.
  5. Similarly if you choose to have a location in a Mall, make sure that the Mall also has great access and secure parking facilities.
  6. Decide whether you want to be in an area where you don’t have any direct competitors, or decide whether they will provide a great business climate.
