Starting a business can be expensive!


There is a lot you will need to invest in before the dollars start rolling in to cover those costs. So, how can you make your money work for you?


When it comes to sourcing the equipment you need there are a few things that you can do to save some pennies.

The first is to only buy the things that you need to get you operational, then you can shop the specials to see if any of your essentials are on sale, and finally, you can join the FED Products Loyalty Programme where you will instantly make back 5% on your purchases.


Let’s look into all these points in greater detail.



Only Buy What You Need


It can be very tempting to rush out and buy everything under the sun that you could possibly need when starting a business. Unfortunately, that kind of spending requires a champagne budget, when in reality, you probably only have a beer budget as a startup.


Instead of jumping in guns blazing and credit card waving, try and be sensible about your purchases. Before you hit the shops, make a list of the essentials you need to get your business running.


For example, if you are starting a cafe then a coffee machine is going to be an essential purchase. However, you could probably skip the linen napkins monogrammed with your logo for now! Start with the basics and build upwards from there. You don’t want to blow your budget before you have even begun.


Sometimes it can be hard to know exactly what you need for a new business. If you are unsure, then come and speak to one of our expert sales team. We have masses of experience and will be happy to share our recommendations on the essentials you will need to build a successful business from the start.



Shop The Specials


Often you can find great deals on essential items by shopping the things that are on sale. Just because an item has been marked down does not mean that it is poor quality. Businesses create sales for a number of reasons. The main ones are to clear existing stock to make way for other variations, to sell the last couple of items left in a certain size or colour, or simply because they don’t want to have to count it at stocktake time!


This is amazing news for budding and existing businesses. You can pick up great deals on high-quality items that will help you to preserve your budget. We always recommend any of the sale stock at FED Products. It will definitely do the job you need it to, and do it well.



Join The Loyalty Programme


We love to reward our loyal customers at FED Products and to help you to get ahead in your business. That is why we run a loyalty programme for our existing customers.


Don’t panic, there are no annoying forms to fill in or cards to lose in your purse or wallet. Every customer that buys from our business is automatically enrolled into our loyalty programme. That means you get great savings simply by shopping with us.


You can make use of the loyalty programme in two different ways…

  1. If you shop with us regularly and intend to purchase again, then we will apply a discount to your account. The discount is calculated at 5% of your spend. So, if you made purchases totally $10,000, the next time you shop with us, you would have a $500 credit waiting on your account.
  2. The other way to utilise the programme is to refer friends, colleagues or family to us. If they mention that you referred them when they are making a purchase, we will send you a 5% rebate based on the value of their spend.


The loyalty programme is our way of giving back to our amazing community of clients.


If you are starting a new business or updating the equipment in your existing business then FED Products can help you to minimise your spend. Grab the essentials from us and be enrolled in our loyalty programme at the same time. AND, if you are an existing customer, you will get 5% of your spend back.
