Introduction to Small Business Guide

In today's Nigeria, the stark reality is that tens of thousands of graduates are pursuing hundreds of jobs. The odds are becoming greater as more and more graduates joing the saturated job hunting market seeking fewer jobs as the economy shrinks further due to crippling power outages and deteriorating security and infrastructure. A handful of graduates have run out of patience, endurance and long suffering and have jumped on the crime and other vices bandwagon.

As a social responsibility to this growing army of Nigerian citizens, we started a free classified online job vacancies advert section, Galleria JobZone.

We have always maintained that the ultimate is to mind your business, literally. We can choose to be employers of labour rather that struggle for the few available spaces. We can reduce unemployment by taking some folks out of the job hunting market rather than adding to the number.

To match our action with words, we have decided to rol…

Are you afraid of spending money to grow the business?

As an entrepreneur, you desire to grow your business and take it to the next level. The challenge is, we often pull back from spending the money in areas required for our company to grow. We look for a short cut, trying to get something for nothing or making the lowest cost the primary driver of our spending decisions.

To grow your business, you need to spend. However, you need to be smart about it so that you get good returns on your investment. Any time the economy is not doing well, companies tend to cut costs and lay off staff. The CEO becomes an accountant overnight.

That includes training, research, and development, advertising and marketing, etc., activities that will lead to higher turnover. It could be hiring a business coach or consultant, getting help with your business plan and …

What are the benefits of listing your business in on online directory?

Directories are not as popular as they used to be ten years ago. Yahoo! and Google have since rested their directories, although Google has moved to a different listing format by locality - Google Places. However, directories are still relevant, especially if you want to extend your reach through the internet.

Directories have evolved since the days of Yahoo!. Listings are now localised and interactive. Customers can send you an email or call you at a click of the button (without needing to type anything), including drop feedback or rate your services. With Google Maps integration, you can get directions to a store via Google Maps through a directory listing.

So what are the current benefits of listing your business in an online directory?

You are more visible online.

How can your clients find you?

You started a business to solve an identified need in your locality. People are looking for people who will solve their problems without adding more stress to their lives. They are ready to pay for it. The question becomes, how do they find you?

How do we find service providers or where to buy things?

Word of Mouth

Let start with the old school method, which is still alive and well - ask a friend (or family) — the good old word of mouth recommendation. Word of mouth has limitations. One of them is that the standard of who is making the recommendation may be lower than yours. She may tell you "That guy is good" but when you try him, you may wonder why you allowed yourself to get into that situation. What may you may be looking for may not be available in your locality, or the people who you ask may not know. It is still a good way of finding what you are looking for
