Check out MTA Queensland’s Free Business Resources
MTA Queensland is continuously working to improve what we can provide for members and have now built a resource library in the MTA Queensland website which contains many useful business tools.
Designed specifically with our members’ needs in mind, the library of resources has templates and tools intended to guide you through all stages of your business including succession planning.
The resources include a marketing plan, social media plan, emergency management, financial ratios as well as advice for applying for grants and assistance.
There is information relating to small business tools, family business resources, taxation, superannuation and cyber security, with additional content being added regularly.
There are other resources available to MTA Queensland members which can only be accessed when logged in to the MTA Queensland website, including the MTA Queensland and Professional Circle logos, which can be used to promote your business and association with the industry’s peak body.
In addition, there are three key marketing messages (see pictures to the right) available for use on your website or social media, promoting your business’s ability to deliver service in line with the benchmark of industry standards and above all, showcasing your proof of professionalism.
