By on Sep 29, 2015 in Businesses | 0 comments

We here at iBusiness know a thing or two about marketing. In fact, we know a lot more than a thing or two, and are always eager to share with our customers. Building brand recognition, finding the right customers, broadening your demographics, and building customer lists are all best approached with an organized strategy for gathering and analyzing information. We can guide you in marketing your business, no matter what you sell. In this case, here are some pointers on how to market your planters business. Planters UK Planters have become a go-to product for individuals, corporations, and municipalities that are looking for ways to beautify their properties. It’s good to keep this in mind as you market your planters. Cities and townships are working diligently to increase their green spaces in an effort to purify air and add humidity to the atmosphere. One of the most logical ways to do this is through the use of planters. This is because cities have a great deal of paved area, with streets, sidewalks, and parking lots coating the soil with impenetrable concrete. To counter this, they often order custom planters to bring soil, water, and living plants back into these areas. In the interest of marketing your planters business, you should prepare a sales pitch that shows what can be done with planters in urban situations. If you have not done a lot of this work, yet, then hire professionally done renderings that can demonstrate what certain areas would look like when landscaped with planters UK. On your website it is an excellent idea to have a tab for municipalities, with a full listing of services they may hire from you. While you may not be interested in landscaping maintenance, you can see to it that customized planters are placed in the correct locations, with the appropriate plantings. By presenting this material to city councils, you can begin to add potentially large orders for planters. Corporations also are looking for ways to add green space, both around their office complexes and inside large buildings. This can be another section of your website, in which corporations can see just what your planter business can do for their facilities. It has been...

Starting Your Own Health Spa

By on Aug 25, 2015 in Businesses, health business | 0 comments

Starting your own health spa can be an exciting, yet scary proposition. You are not only taking on a business, but it is a business that can affect people’s health. This goes beyond simply providing a product or a service – you will be part of the hospitality industry, with even more responsibility. Here are some things to keep in mind as you start your own health spa. Your Passion You probably have a passion for some feature of healthy living. Perhaps you practice yoga, or you truly feel inspired when eating a vegan diet. Maybe for you, healthy cooking is a fulfilling passion, and you want to make a living with it. Others may specialize in massage therapy. All of these are services people expect to find at a health spa, and you can build your own niche focused on your passion. As you develop your business plan, center it on your passion and build out from there. As your plan comes together, you may find that your passion gets pushed to the side. Are you ok with that? If not, revise your plan so that you will be doing your dream job as you work onsite. If this will not be possible, maybe you need to change to a different business that focuses strictly on your skill. Choosing Location Your location will be important to the success of your business. Or, at least, your marketing of your location. Some people want to feel like part of the natural world, and are looking for remote locations for their health spa. Others want urban locations so they can go shopping during their stay. All you have to do is market your own location. You may have found an opportunity to buy an old hotel or farmhouse. Play up the history of the property. Plan to make it as comfortable as possible, and those who want a retreat will surely have one. Plan Staffing Needs The services you plan to offer your customers will have to be supplied by someone – and that would be your staff. Interview carefully, and do a background check on anyone you want to hire. This can be crucial to the success of your business,...

Starting Your Lawn Care Franchise

Starting Your Lawn Care Franchise

By on May 19, 2015 in Franchising | 0 comments

Many young pre-teens have earned money during summers off by mowing lawns. Even more of the earn an allowance by mowing the family lawn. It is only the most enterprising that build this pocket money enterprise into an actual profession. There are probably local lawn care companies in your area, but what you may not know is that there are also lawn care franchises in the UK. Whether you wish to start your own lawn care franchise or purchase into an existing one, here are some pointers that will help to make your business run more smoothly and create more profit. Depth of Service If you are considering starting your own lawn care franchise, you’ll need to decide the depth of service you wish to provide. Generally, if you want people to call you instead of the neighbor’s kid to mow the lawn, edge, and run the weed eater, you’ll have to offer service a little more specialized. For example, you may need to study treatment options for various lawn diseases and pests. As a lawn care professional, you will need to be able to troubleshoot and determine why a particular lawn is not doing well. It could be because of pests, disease, or traffic. You will then need to propose a solution to the problem. The neighborhood kids usually are not certified to apply pesticide to kill grub worms, but, are you? As a professional, you’ll need to get the training necessary to apply whatever chemicals the lawn needs. Another facet of your service may be tree pruning. Don’t undertake this dimension without proper training, because you don’t want to pay for ruining someone’s specimen tree. This may be a service you should consider, though because most people who hire lawn services want someone who can take care of the entire landscape. Business Sense Some people are born entrepreneurs. They have a way with people and have no trouble building up a customer base, and they have the mechanical sills to do the job right the first time. They also are good with time and money management Unfortunately, most people are good at one or the other of those skills, but not all three. They can either do...

Artificial Plants In The Office

By on Mar 16, 2015 in Office Motivation | 0 comments

The workplace can often be sterile and unwelcoming. Office workers, in particular, can benefit from more personal touches. The simple addition of plants in an office environment can reduce stress and increase productivity. While real plants can sometimes be a problem, causing allergies and the occasional spill, artificial plants yield almost the same benefits. That is why ilBusiness has purchased artificial plants for its offices. Ambiance The entire ambiance of the offices has changed with the addition of artificial plants. While live plants would add the additional benefit of cleaning the air and increasing humidity, all of the other benefits of plants in the office are accomplished with artificial plants. The plants have softened the hard edges of cubicle space and industrial furniture. At a subconscious level, employees experience less stress. The lower stress levels increase morale, and productivity has improved. Employees and visitors all report being more relaxed, because the spaces seem more “friendly” and less harsh. Delineated Spaces Another benefit from the addition of artificial plants is that spaces in the office are more delineated. Visitors to the office no longer aimlessly wander through hallways, because the reception area is clearly, yet subtlety marked with plants. Plants in the reception area also help guests to relax more and feel less threatened. The entrance to our offices is also easily distinguishable from other offices in the hallway because of the strategic placement of plants. More Energy Employees have stated that they feel more energetic at the end of the day. This is a deliberately sought-after effect, and one of the reasons for adding plants to the office. Plants of varying sizes, textures, and colors create shadows and shading that reduce eye strain. The various shades of green interspersed with blooms in different colors give employees different fields of focus. Employees are more likely to take “eye breaks” when there are attractive plants within their view. Ophthalmologists recommend regular eye breaks for people who work at computers all day. These variations, while subtle, have a big impact on the work environment. Besides filtering light, the plants also buffer sound. Even carpeted cubicles bounce sound around, but the foliage of plants create better acoustics, dampening the noise of a coworker’s...

How to Make a Good Business Website

How to Make a Good Business Website

By on Sep 30, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Your business can make a great splash on the internet with a well-designed website. But, how do you get one of those? Two Method of Building a Website There are basically two methods for getting a business website. The first one is to do it yourself. This is actually not as hard as you may think. Web hosts have templates available for that very reason. You can plug your information into the templates, using the colours, fonts, and graphics you want. You can also determine the navigation you want on the site, and it is your choice as to where the tabs are placed. When you do this, you will need to visit your own website regularly. Click on every link, and open every tab, to make sure everything is still working. Every time you make a change to the website, you need to check to make sure that everything works. The other way to build a website is to get the web host to do it, or to hire it done. If you don’t have any experience in graphics or in design, this may be the best way to go. A professional designer will be able to make your website attractive yet captivating. Considerations One of the considerations for building your website is to make sure it will download quickly on mobile devices. This will require the development of files that enable your website to convert to various Oss smoothly and quickly. This coding is somewhat advanced, and you can learn to do it yourself, but is it worth the time? Most business owners don’t have the time to develop these intricate coding files, so it often falls to the duty of the web host to do so. Design The site itself will usually have flash on it. Flash is the software that makes things move on your website. If you have video, strobes, music, or speciality cursors on your site, it will not download onto mobile devices. This has caused many savvy business people to make sure their websites are redesigned to translate well, regardless of the OS. In general, you want to make sure that the colours you use in your design are easy to look...
