The FSB has supported businesses for over 40 years with their membership package. This provides a range of benefits intended to aid small businesses in a competitive local climate.

For example, all FSB members gain support to protect their business, save money and expand. These services can range from Insurance Servicing to Pension Schemes. Membership also provides access to networking events and business leads. Networking is great way for Plymouth businesses to interact with other small businesses, making contacts and promoting services all in a cost-effective manner.
It makes sense for any Plymouth business to be interested in the FSB, as not only do members gain access to many benefits, all intended to aid their business, but the goals of the organisation itself directly aim to support all of its members through a certain criteria that the company incorporates into its values. The FSB like to retain as many members as possible, promote and protect the interests of their members, as well as publicising to a wide market the positives of self-employment and business ownership. Furthermore, due to the ever changing nature of business, the FSB are always aware of the needs of its members and how to adapt and meet these needs on a continuous basis, so both the organisation and its business members can grow and expand. Expanding is the ultimate goal of most businesses. With the support of communities such as the Federation of Small Businesses this is exactly what PL1 Web Design intendeds to do as we hope to become the top web design company in Plymouth.
