How Can I Encourage People To Give My Business A Chance?

One of the biggest challenges you’ll face as a small business owner is getting started. After all, between refining your brand, developing products, and securing funding, you’ve got a lot of long days (and nights) ahead of you. However, the challenges don’t stop there! 

Once you’ve formally opened your business, you need to ensure that you’re building your customer base. This can be not easy when you’re first starting out, as you don’t have a track record of success that can be used to convince potential customers to try out your products or services. However, difficult does not mean impossible!

What Adds Legitimacy To A Brand In 2024?

While marketing is still a highly effective industry and, of course, essential in almost every commercial sector, it’s true that consumers rarely look to marketing alone as a form of legitimacy. That’s because if I market a product I benefit from selling, you know I have a bias to present this to you in the most glowing terms. Many people have grown up through decades of discarding the claims made by marketing packages, knowing they’ve been carefully designed to sound as impressive as possible. Anyone who has held a fast food burger up to the image used to sell it knows this difficulty.

So – what efforts might add real legitimacy to a brand in 2024? Are there a set of proscribed measures that can be the best place to start? Or is it different for every industry? Well, of course, different permutations exist, and you may wish to shift your approach depending on your audience. That being said, if you’re looking to soak in bonafide legitimacy within your niche, then we’d absolutely consider the following advice:

What If Your Employer Is Less-Than-Helpful Following An Injury?

It’s not a conceited expectation to assume that if you become injured, people around you will tend to feel somewhat sorry for your position and extend their best wishes, even offering help when they can. That’s what most people would do, and it may be how we’d act. That being said, this is not always the case. After all, an employer might not want to admit fault by apologizing or giving you undue help, and in some cases, bad management might even give the impression they don’t care or aren’t comfortable talking to you without a lawyer involved.

This isn’t so fun to deal with when the injury is more than just a box to tick or a claim to make, but a disorienting and deeply distressing life event. Moreover, if you’ve been injured due to neglect or a lack of equipment, you’re well within your rights to feel unhappy about the situation, and that’s putting it politely.

But what if your employer is less-than-helpful following an injury? Is there a correct step forward? In this post, we’ll discuss all of that and more:
