Regional Business Incubation or Acceleration?

Ki Media is working with a range of people in the Southern Highlands looking into the best model for business acceleration in regional areas. Agribusiness, tourism product development and health innovation are three areas of interest to the region.

Local banks, schools, retail, government and service providers are in the discussion.

We welcome involvement in this development for the Southern Highlands and examples of best practise happening elsewhere.

Southern Highlands Food and Wine Clusters

This is a great regional development project – where locals and visitors are able to explore our local food communities. Meet local growers. Eat where the locals eat. Stay.

Ki Media consulted widely and developed the project’s Destination Management Plan for this project and their funding submission to the NSW Destination Regional Visitor Economy Fund.

$4.6m landed for local council

bridge  Ki Media is pleased to announce the latest successful application penned to the Regional Infrastructure Fund landed on behalf of a local council – $4.6m for a bridge project.  This is on top of an application that landed the council a further $7.5m for a road bypass project.

This is how most SME’s handle their debtors

In all my years consulting to small business – cashflow is king. But most small business is challenged by cashflow issues created by slow or non-payers. In fact, a recent survey undertaken by a Ki Media client, showed 62% of the small businesses did nothing to follow up on non-payers. The businesses don’t have the resources to follow up – and are concerned they might jeopardise future work.

The message came back loud and clear. They want their accountant or bookkeeper to do this work on their behalf. But following up on debtors is expensive and time-consuming. And debt collection agencies take a high premium of the sale.

Introducing – IODM (Innovative Online Debt Management). IODM who have a smart, low cost solution to the problem. Their system is a Xero Add-On, MYOB, QuickBooks and other platform agnostic. It’s an effective Accounts Receivable reminder software – the best on the market today.

And it can be white-labelled. Which is where the accountants and book-keepers step in. They can operate the system on behalf of their clients and charge a service fee. Client gets their invoices paid, at the same time the service provider earns an additional revenue stream.

I have asked Damian Arena, CEO at IODM to present how the white label system could work for service providers in a short webinar on April 15 at 12.00.

So my request to you – if you know accountants or book-keepers who would be interested in offering a value-add service to their clients – could you please send them this email for me? Registration details are here:

My thanks – if you have forwarded a link to this post – it’s much appreciated!

Damian and I hope to see you on the webinar next week.

What’s the Difference between a Quotation and a Tender?

We are sometimes asked what is the difference between submitting a quotation and a tender?

A tender works for businesses supplying goods or services to other businesses or the public sector.

Yes, you need to quote for the job. However just submitting, as I have seen done on a number of occasions, a standard quote, will not get you the job. Your submission will not be considered.

Formal tenders apply to bigger jobs or for supply contracts spread over time. Public-sector work in particular has specific tendering processes, such as your local government.

Those requesting a tender are not just looking at price, but also your capacity to deliver the service, your occupational health and safety management, your employment practices.

Even if you are not awarded the tender, the process can clarify your business aims, strengths and weaknesses – and clarify which documentation or insurances are missing from your business process.  It makes for a better business with clearer goals.  It raises your profile with the customer and the community.

My business online – argh – get me out of here!

Social media – where does a small business owner start?

You want everything to be simple. But how much time or knowledge do you have to deal with online marketing.  You know you have to “do social media” to be successful, but really don’t want to have to deal with it.

You know you and your clients need an online connection. Ignoring social media doesn’t mean it ceases to exist, or doesn’t affect you. You most likely need a social media game plan, and maybe a part-time social media manager who you can trust to help you create an online presence and maintain it so you don’t have to deal with it – or can have minimal input.

You worry about going online. You’ve heard a horror story about a business that got a bad review. You panic when they think about having to deal with anything internet related.

And you don’t want a junior having a big impact on your brand’s online presence.

If this is the case. Talk to Ki Media. Simple, effective solutions for small business.
