Our Beliefs and Values
At Local Trade Link we believe that local business matters.
Often it’s the beating heart of a thriving prosperous community.
Local business and the local entrepreneurs who drive it not only provide jobs for the community but provide support for the infrastructure of a local community. One where there is pride, good housing, quality schools, low crime, good public services, and a place that people genuinely feel safe and want to live in.
Without our local businesses and local business community many places would be a grey and desolate shell of what they once were. Places where the only choice of shopping is out of town retail sites with the same collection of multiple retailers and fast food chains that appear everywhere.
Gone would be the local pubs, the local high street shops, restaurants, bars, cafes, stylists and the range of specialist services and businesses that we come to expect in a thriving community.
Business and wealth is always attracted to communities where services and infrastructure are vibrant, and the people are skillful and positive.
Our local business community (Your Local Business Community) needs all the support it can get in the face of huge retailers and online shopping, and that is the drive behind Local Trade Link.
How Local Trade Link Can Help You
As the owner and driving force behind a start up business, existing small business or community project, your time is precious and should be focused on what you do best ~ Converting your ideas and expertise into sales.
When starting out you simply can’t know or do everything and shouldn’t be diverting your time and energy into areas that are unfamiliar or require completely different skill sets.
Unfortunately though, a lot of new business owners quickly get knocked off course by trying to master all the requirements and knowledge to start and run a fledgling organisation.
To an extent it’s understandable that they feel precious money can be saved by trying to keep all developments in-house.
However, if it stops you focusing on the reason why you set up the business in the first place and detracts you from making money, then it’s dangerous territory.
