The implication of finance in business

Hello readers! Finance is an important tool in business, when it is not managed well in business, it can lead to the end of the business. Today, I will be telling you about the implication of finance in business. There are different sources of finance and they all have different implications. Finance gotten from your personal savings is the best.

Finance gotten from friends and family is another good form of raising capital for business. Friends and family usually do not ask for interest, however, I have been informed in my research that some do ask for interest but lower interest if they do ask do not accept the loan. You should not deal with interest because it is bad for you. You have to make your business halal. With friends and family the risk associated with raising money from them is lower this is because if a business challenge occurs, some may let the money go because of the care they have for you. Others might patiently wait for you to bounce back before collecting there monies from you. Close family members and friends should be the ones you ask for loan to execute your business transactions. Make sure you return the money.

Halal means anything lawful Islamically.


Other implications will be discussed in another article. Keep checking my blog regularly. Cheers!

Benefits of timeliness

Hello readers, sorry I did not write any article on Monday and Tuesday. Well, I am back now. Today, I will be writing about the benefits of timeliness. In business, one of the key factors that lead to success is timeliness. You create a good impression when you are on time and a bad one when you are not on time. Let's us be realistic, you cannot always be on time 100% of the time but at least 80% and that is good enough.

- When you are on time, it builds the confidence individuals have in you, as such they will be willing to do business with you.

- When you are on time, it gives you a competitive advantage over your competitors.

- When you are on time, it makes you feel good about yourself, come on you know how it feels when you are late. You are much more confident when you are on time. So you are able to deal with business transactions efficiently and effectively.

- When you are on time for a business meeting or a job interview. You feel more relaxed and it helps set your mind in the right state.

- When you are on time it also shows individuals that you respect them.

Planning before taking actions helps you become timely.

Image courtesy of Salvatore Vuono at FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Hello readers, I hope you are good so today I decided to take a look at India as it is one of the fastest growing economies in the world.

Agricultural Industry

This industry contributes 17% to the GDP of the economy. The country is the largest producer of fruits and milk in the world. Which suggests that the country is well patronised when it comes to agricultural products, as such, an investment in the industry will be profitable. It is largest employer in India.

Automobile Industry

This industry also contributes to the development of the economy. It accounts for 7.1% of the GDP of the economy. It is one of the largest industries in the world. They produced over 23 million  vehicles in 2015. An investment in the industry  will be a lucrative one.

Real Estate Industry

A lot of individuals are moving to the Indian cities annually, as such the demand of houses is meant over time. More than 30% of the people living in India are between the ages of 15 to 35. It can be said that it will also lead to an increase in the demand for houses over the years. They are the second largest employer in India. An investment in the industry will also be profitable.

Marketing tips for a make-up company

Image courtesy of Praisaeng at FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Hello readers, today I will be giving you few tips on how to market your make-up if you are planning to start a make-up company. The marketing mix will be used to give you few tips that you could use.

Product

The quality of the make up must be good. It must have the effect the customers are looking for. As such it must complement their facial features rather than making them look horrible.

Price

The effect the make up will have on the face of the customer must be reflected. Well, there are notable brands out there in the market. So if you want your brand to be known as a luxury product, ofcourse the price of the product must be higher. However, the quality of the product must match the price of the product.

Place

Your product must be easily accessible. It can be distributed to stores that have outlets available in most locations. The internet is also another place that your products can be made available, that way anybody can access it.

Promotion

The truth is nobody will know that your product exist if you do not tell them about it, as such a promotion should be done for those that cannot afford an advert, flyers can be distributed through outlets were your products are available. However, tv and radio adverts are also very good if the company can afford it. Discounted prices could be used to lure customers. Buy one get one free can be used for any products.

Hello readers, I hope you are great. Always remember the script writer of a movie is a person just like you so before you accept any message being passed in movie apply your critical reasoning.

Choosing the appropraite target to motivate your staff


Image courtesy of Simon Howden at FreeDigitalPhotos.net


Hello readers, so it is good to reward your staff members for their hardwork. A reward scheme will contribute to the development of a business and that of its staff if used well which is a good thing, as such businesses should use reward schemes.

Owners of businesses sometimes make a mistake of setting a reward scheme that ends up jeopardizing the success of the business. For example, if a hairstylist is given a target to attend to a certain amount of customers (braiding) in a day to get a reward. Then the hairstylist might decide to cut the braids big in order to hit the target, however, leading to dissatisfaction of customers which will affect the business eventually.

The main aim of a reward scheme is to contribute to the success of a business while meeting the needs of employees. As such targets should be strategic. A target must be equal, like various employees must have equal targets and it must be achievable. A target must not be vague and it must be within the control of the employees. It must lead to meeting the needs of the business as well as that of the staff

Getting the best from brainstorming

Image courtesy of chatchai_stocker at FreeDigitalPhotos.net


Hello reader, yes you, I hope you are good. Today I decided to carry out a research on brainstorming. Definately, we all know brainstorming is an activity carried out by a group, where members of the group contribute ideas in other to overcome a business challenge. What everyone will not know are the rules to abide by during brainstorming. Here they are:

-All members of the group should be encouraged and allowed to contribute during brainstorming.

-The more the ideas, the better cause at the end of the brainstorming sessions, ideas that are of low qualities can be eliminated, as such do not criticize ideas. Quantity is better than quality during that stage

-Make sure the group members do not divert from the goal of the brainstorming session.

-Crazy and Wild ideas should be encouraged. 

-Ideas should be built upon, one idea could lead to another idea or two ideas could be joined together.
