SHIFT YOUR BUSINESS UP A GEAR

ORGANIC growth will drive the Gold Coast’s SME sector in 2011 and there’s plenty of scope to capitalise on opportunities. The trick will be how to convert confidence into profits.

Investing in key people, building relationships with financiers, diversifying services and products and protecting assets will help spur growth in the new business landscape.

This new landscape will present new challenges too. Lending remains tight and many are bracing for another RBA rate rise next month. Identifying new clients and offering new products to existing clients could be the difference between surviving and growing.

The experts tell us that 2011 will present opportunities, but there are ‘ifs’ attached. Get your copy of Gold Coast Business News February issue to read the full finance feature as our expert commentators outline how you can shift your business up a gear. Out now in more than 450 newsagents.
