Did you know that 520,000 new businesses were started in the UK during 2013? A recent Guardian article suggests that it’s not starting a business that’s the challenge, but rather small businesses need help when it comes to scaling up their operations.
According to the article, there are three main challenges that new businesses must overcome in order to grow: access to finance, access to talent and access to customers.
Here at The Great British Exchange we understand how taking your business to the next level can be a daunting task; whether it be increasing your geographical spread, introducing a new type of customer to your portfolio or increasing production.
Each business has its own challenges, however lack of time and resources to focus on several areas at once is a common issue. When time is precious just running your business often takes priority over trying to expand it.
We aim to support British producers with ambitions to scale up. We will enable British producers to sell to retailers looking for unique, high quality British goods. Through us, producers can sell to retailers across the UK, including a mix of independent stores and small chain, high street retailers.
We provide a secure and easy route to market for producers looking to increase B2B sales.
With The Great British Exchange there’s no need to worry about dealing with multiple retailers and stacks of admin. We are the only contact you will need to sell and deliver your items; we organise the sales orders and pay you direct so you don’t have to chase payments or worry if the money will come in.
If you’re looking to increase your B2B sales or want to start marketing your products to retail customers we can help. Register your details with us today and let us tell you more about working with The Great British Exchange.
