Manbags and pet hotels

Did you know that ‘manbags’ constitute a fifth of luxury handbag sales? And did you realise there was such a thing as handbag hire services?

The latest update to COBRA, our collection of online business information factsheets, will tell you everything you need to know about how a handbag hire service works, and how to go about setting one up.

If dry stone walling, children’s cookery classes or opening a pet hotel is more your thing, there’s brand new guidance on those opportunities as well, along with up-to-the-minute advice on developing marketing plans and a list of the most common reasons why small businesses fail.

(Three of the reasons listed are poor planning, lack of market research and lack of awareness of legal issues – and of course the first step to remedying any of these problems is enlisting the services of a tool like COBRA)

COBRA is free for members of Edinburgh Libraries – so if you’re not already a member join up online today.
