How to secure your first customers

Starting a business

Resident of Sunderland? Thinking of starting a new business but don’t know where to start?

Pallion Action Group is hosting a series of events in partnership with the North East BIC to help residents set up their own business.

This free workshop will help you develop an understanding of how to secure your first customers.

Often seen as the most daunting prospect when starting out, this workshop will provide an overview of the basics of market research and how to get to know your customers.

Understanding who they are, where they are and how best to reach them is key to any successful business, and we’ll help you overcome each of those barriers.

The session will also help you look at who and where your competitors are and research the market you will be competing in!

One-to-one appointments are also available.

The events are FREE to attend and are exclusively for residents of:

Pallion, Ford, High Barnes, Pennywell, South Hylton, Grindon, Hastings Hill, Thorney Close, Springwell, East & Middle Herrington, Farringdon, Silksworth, Humbledon, Plains Farm.
