Business In Bolton, The Growing and Changing Business Community

At thebestofbolton we believe that Bolton is a great town, full of great people and amazing businesses. We can so easily get caught up with the doom and gloom of the current economic climate and grumble about the downturn in business but those businesses who want to not only survive the recession but to grow and flourish into something bigger and better than before, know they have to do something that sets them apart from their competitors.

We are meeting so many businesses each week and there now seems to be a common thread in what a buisness wants and this is:-

  • More local business
  • More word of mouth custom
  • A differentiator that sets them apart
Is this you, if so then we at thebestofbolton want to hear from you or if you know a business then you MUST recommend them, great businesses deserve to be told they are doing a brilliant job. 

Very few businesses can make it alone, they need support from a variety of places, other great businesses and also services who can point them in the right direction to key services to help their business grow and thrive.

Business Bolton a great resource for the business community of Bolton. Business Bolton offers direct help and support to all Bolton businesses including how to:

  • Improve and grow your business
  • Expand or relocate your business
  • Raise finance
  • Find the right staff
  • Reduce recruitment costs
  • Equip your workforce with the skills to do the job
  • Access local business networks
  • Make sure your business is a success
Another fantastic way of building up your business is by 'business networking'. and Business for Breakfast offers a great forum to do this. Business for Breakfast works on the principle of 'know, like and trust' and while there is a level of formality about the meetings, they tend to offer a relaxed and easy going approach to building your business.

Presenting yourself and your business through thebestofbolton, business for breakfast or meeting up with strategic partners such as Business Bolton can require an element of planning and as the old saying goes 'you never get a second chance to make a first impression'. Colour Me Beautiful image and colour consultants can help both ladies and gentlemen with their overall business and personal image and communication skills. It is a fantastic way to really increase your confidence when showcasing your business. 

Finally there is the Greater Manchester Chamber Of Commerce who again offer support in a variety of guises to help and support businesses at all levels of their lifespan. I have to admit, my previous experience of the Chamber has not been as positive as I had hoped but more recently had a fantastic meeting with Bob Spendlove, who really has a thirst to bring the local feel back to the Chamber. Bob is really working hard at generating the 'feel good' factor of doing business in Bolton and thebestofbolton hope to be working collaboratively with the GM Chamber very soon.

We know that Bolton is a great place to do business and at thebestofbolton we want to build a business culture that is exciting, vibrant and most of all amplifies what we believe is the best business generator of all...word of mouth. As we say at thebestofbolton....'WORD OF MOUTH JUST GOT LOUDER'
