Over the next few years, how can we best stimulate business for local SME businesses? For example, do we need to make more funding available to discount entry cost to attractions in order to attract more people to an area? Another example: for B2B’s, would it be feasible to launch a loyalty scheme?
The best way to stimulate business for local SME’s is to empower them to create it themselves.
This can be achieved through mentoring or coaching or championing.
Discounts can be helpful to our industry and assume that people will only come on price. We need to create quality and value in our local SME’s.
