'Within a few weeks of joining we'd taken advantage of FSB’s Online Legal Documents. We started a graduate programme and access to these documents gave us an understanding of the legal side, and has helped us to create a number of processes and procedures.'
'When we first took on a member of staff, we used the online legal document template library. FSB does more important stuff than you think it does, there are lots of member benefits, probably more than we actually use.'
'Having somebody like FSB behind you is fantastic. There is a whole team behind the organisations, whatever is required: support, advice, finance, you know that you’re not alone, you’ve got FSB.'

These days it seems that no matter what ideas you come up with, whether to start your business or grow it, there is already several other people doing the same thing.
So, how do you get your business noticed when everyone is vying for the same ideal customer’s attention? Here are our top 5 tips.
You don’t always have to undercut the competition with lower prices to stand out, especially not if doing this will harm your business in the long run.
No matter how saturated your market, there is always room for a good deal. If you consistently come up with good offers, whether that be sales or special promotions, you will stand out from your competition. People love a bargain or a freebie, so just tailor your promotions to what resonates most with your buyers.
Try and do something different. Don’t blindly follow your competition. Make your promotions unique and you will immediately grab the attention of potential customers trying to decide which option to go for.
There may be a lot more businesses that do the same thing as you, but none of them have you.
What’s your unique selling point? What do you and your business do differently? What’s your experience and area of expertise?
Elaborate on your individuality and make it work in your favour.
Providing exceptional customer service will always make your business stand out.
When there are many different options available to your potential customer all matching in service and price, they are more likely to choose the business with the best service.
Make sure that your customer service is consistently a cut above the rest to give your business the edge over your competitors.
Building trust and a reputation as an authority in your field can be the deciding factor between your business and someone else’s.
Trust matters. Customers are more likely to choose a company that has a proven track record than someone who may offer the same service even at a reduced cost, but doesn’t have a solid or any evidence that they know what they’re doing.
Your positive customer feedback is an incredibly handy tool to have in your box. Make the most of your recommendations or positive reviews.
Use case studies or customer stories and comments in your emails, social media, on your website and in your advertising.
Your business does not need to be one of the many in a crowded market. Use our tips and be inventive with your own campaigns, and there is always a way to stand apart from your competition.
We will help you to take your first steps in promoting your business online.
