Building brand awareness and strengthening rapport

One of the biggest challenges for many companies in Minnesota is the quest to build and advertise a brand that is uniquely different from all of the other competing companies in their industry. This aspect of growing an organization requires time, assessment of objectives, research and risk-taking for leaders to discover how to create a brand that is effective at both informing and motivating consumers to choose their product or service. 

What to know about general liability policy

One of the keys to making a new business last in Rochester is to build in protections so that the company does not fall prey to lawsuits that could deplete its resources or drive it into bankruptcy. Investing your company with general commercial liability insurance is one way you can shield your business in the event another party brings a suit against your company for damages. If you are considering buying insurance for your business, here are some important things you should know.

Using strategy to decide on a new location for your business

As you grow your business in Minnesota, you may encounter the need to invest in some more commercial property to help with the development of your organization. Deciding where to purchase this property is critical to your success and will require you to spend considerable time comparing your options. At Dunlap & Seeger, we have helped many business owners to secure and protect various aspects of their company. 

Negotiating strategically to win over investors

When new companies are testing the waters with their products, investors can play a critical role in expediting the process of building small businesses and helping them scale their initiative. What organizational leaders in Minnesota should be aware of is how critical their content delivery is when pitching to investors. What they say, or do not say, and how clearly and confidently it is presented can make all the difference in whether or not they can seal the deal. 

Preparing to facilitate the process of a company merger

Merging two companies in Minnesota is a strategic business play that may allow two organizations to effectively build their success by feeding off of each other's strengths and core competencies. With joined forces, the newly-created company has the opportunity to gain momentum to soar beyond their competitors, but only if adequate steps are taken by corporate leaders to facilitate the merger and guide the process. 

Building a company to attract committed investors

When people are building their company in Minnesota, they have a lot of different tasks to try and manage. Often, they experience difficulties when they encounter the need to perform certain operational functions where they do not have adequate strengths or know-how. This is where the coaching, support and encouragement of investors can make a considerable difference in how effectively new companies can scale their business. 

Tips for developing a good business partnership

Entreprenuers in Minnesota often know that partnering with the right people can be the way to success with their venture. This believe is based, at least in part, on the knowledge that no one person can truly be an expert in every aspect of running a business. However, there is a bit of an art to selecting the right person to work with in order to set things up for a positive outcome.

What are your options for transferring business ownership?

If you are ready to retire, want to exit one business deal so that you may pursue another or simply want to transfer part of your stake in a Minnesota business to another individual, you have several options for doing so. Each comes with its own merits and pitfalls, each of which you should inform yourself of before making any final decisions.
