1. Use Available Tools

This goes for promotions that other businesses may be offering too. If your bank is advertising a special business credit card or line of credit, now may be a good time to apply. Even if you don't need funds immediately, it can be useful to have the resources at your disposal just in case.

2. Educate Yourself

3. Rethink Office Space

Maybe you've had a plush office space in the past. Unless you have a sizeable nest egg or you really need to impress clients with a fashionable office space and location, this is not the area to splurge. If you can get away with a home office or shared workspace at the beginning, that can help you save on fixed costs.

Choose colors

4. Market Wisely

The reality is, you need to attract new customers and retain the ones you already have to be successful. It really doesn't matter what type of business you are in, that is a fairly universal premise. And, there are tons of savvy marketing companies that will gladly take your money and get your name in front of potential customers or clients. However, you may not need to go that route.

In fact, smart marketing doesn't have to cost a lot of money. There are tons of resources available to help you promote your own business. Look to host special events or sales that can draw attention. Social media marketing can be incredibly effective and it is relatively inexpensive. If you run a business that has a large amount of foot traffic exposure, consider signage or flyers to help spread the word. Get involved with community events and industry or trade shows to let others know you are on the scene.

5. Track All Spending

Track all of your business spending, no matter how small or insignificant it seems. This will give you a realistic picture of how much you spend to operate, and can help you plan and budget for the future. For tax purposes, you will want to keep these expenses separate from your personal ones whenever possible. That will probably mean setting up a business account at your bank.

6. Establish Goals

Any business must have goals. If you don't have an established mission or goals statement, now is the time to create one. Determine what you are trying to do with your business, what service it offers to the world. Then set up smaller goals that can help you achieve the overarching big picture.

7. Plan for the Unexpected

No matter how financially responsible and frugal you are at managing a business, there will be unexpected expenses that arise. Starting a rainy day fund as soon as possible can help you avoid incurring debt in the case of an emergency or sudden decline in revenue.

Managing a business can be a challenge, especially if you are not familiar with common management practices. Following these tips can help you establish a solid financial base for building a successful and thriving business.
