Making learning practical for small business owners

When it comes to the small business section of your bank’s website, you might be thinking about what content you can publish that’s fresh, dynamic and above all, useful for your small business customers. One of the most important things to keep in mind is that it’s never too late to learn.

In other words, if you can provide content that’s both useful and educational, it’s a win-win situation.

Take business plans, for instance. You might be surprised at how many business owners don’t actually have one, and although they ideally should be created for the launch of the business, and updated subsequently throughout a business’s lifecycle, there’s nothing to stop a business owner from crystallizing their ideas and goals by getting them down on paper. This is where a comprehensive guide, and an easy-to-use business plan template are essential resources for the small business section of your website.

The same goes for cash flow and sales forecasts. A template, and a guide on how to use them and analyze their results are not only practical, but your small business customers are learning at the same time.

The below article looks at other ways for making learning practical for small business owners.
