If a business owner finds their credit needs to be fixed, they should seek help that is readily available at little or no cost.
Allow Experts to Advise You
Most business owners are experts in the operations of their business. It is often their specialized knowledge or interest that drove them to open the business in the first place. For example, a love of food may drive a new restaurant owner, or a sports enthusiast may open a specialized retail establishment to share their passion.
These entrepreneurs may be very successful in their endeavors, but they may also encounter problems that develop outside their area of expertise.
When problems beyond your area of expertise develop, there may be free resources available to assist. Experts within your community are available through SCORE, a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting small businesses.
Jumpstart Your Business Credit
One area few business owners will have expertise in is business credit, especially if problems develop. There is expert help available for this important process, and it could be beneficial to turn to experts from the very beginning. Small Business Starter™ is a service offered by Dun & Bradstreet that could help your business move from startup to success.
With this service, you will enjoy an expedited process to obtain a D&B D-U-N-S® Number. That number can help you begin documenting your business credit in your D&B credit file, and prove your company’s financial stability to prospective creditors and suppliers.
Further, you will have access to your company’s online profile on the D&B Credibility Review, which can help promote your business with a business description, logo, custom video, and photos. The listing can also enhance your rank on major search engines.
With a premium profile in the D&B Credibility Review business directory, you will also be able to display a D&B Credibility badge on your website that links to your directory profile. This could make your small business appear much larger than it actually is to potential customers, lenders, and investors.
