The following are the procedures needed to register yourself and your business with the SME Association of Zimbabwe. Registration can be done online by following the instructions below, or by downloading and completing this form. You can also do it at our office. Registration is free of charge.
- Register as a user by completing the registration form. If you are looking to become a Subscribed member (i.e. you do not have a business running, but wish to get into business soon), this is all you need to do at this point. Further instructions are obtainable on the Subscribed membership page. This registration automatically subscribes you to receive our weekly newsletter.
- To proceed to become a Registered member, log into the site using the username and password you registered with above, and register your business in the business directory. Note that you will not see the option to “Add an entry” on the business directory if you are not logged onto the site.
- While still logged on, enter your products in the online shop. Include prices where possible, or indicate how prices are calculated (e.g. hourly rates, success fees, e.t.c) in the product description space. This information is useful for us in marketing your business, and more importantly for potential clients to see what products/services you offer. An increasing number of people are searching for products and services online, and because of our website’s high ranking, your products will feature prominently in any search results.
- Get your customers to give feedback on your business’ performance by requesting them to complete a rating and review of your company. You can easily send out e-mail requests for referrals by using this form. Reviews are important as they give us and other people who may wish to do business with you a third party confirmation of your abilities as a business. You can see an example of a reviewed business by clicking here.
