My business is very much concerned with small business. We want to change the that appointment based businesses advertise and while we are at it, we want to change the way that we as customers find these companies.
We believe that its about time that there was a shake up and that small business shouldnt be ripped off when it comes to advertising costs.
Here's my take on the small business.. with a few facts and figures. I'd love to hear your views on Chambers of Commerce or Trade Guild membership.

I agree more could be done to help small businesses have a voice - however joining this group or the other comes at a cost, which at a time when establishing a small business there is generally limited finances. If there was a way for small businesses to join a group on a deferred payment option until turnover reached a certain level, I'm sure this could help small businesses thrive in our economy.

I know that our Chamber of Commerce has a number of free events each month for non-members. That said our subscription (as we only have 4 members of staff) was £288 for the year and that was split into 4 payments.
