1. Be open-minded You think you're looking for a bank loan? Think again. Yes, bank loans are one product that your business can use to get the finance it needs, but what many people don't understand is that there are hundreds of other products available. The chances that a traditional term loan is right for you are slim, especially with bank criteria being as tight as they are following the crash. Other products that might be more suitable for your business include crowd funding, short-term loans, invoice finance, leasing, commercial mortgages, merchant cash advance and others.
