Most small business owners don’t realize the most important tool for building business credit is already in their hands. Even more startling is the fact that it is free to anyone who needs it. We specialize in teaching and assisting small business owners to build and manage their corporate credit relationships. The first step to enhancing a solid business credit profile is to make sure you are registered and familiar with the D&B® iUpdate® process.
Ownership of your credit profile starts with knowing how to put the “i” in iUpdate®.
Do you know how to get a free copy of your D&B® business credit profile?
Many people operate under the misconception of having to pay for an outside service to start building their business credit, but the D&B® iUpdate® portal provides small business owners the ability to actively participate in how their company is portrayed in the credit community and impact the data that flows through normal channels into the D&B® database. Oftentimes, some of the simplest transactions that could be working for a company’s benefit fail to flow into the file due to incomplete or inaccurate data, such as old address or misspelling of the company name.
As a part of our ongoing “PAY IT FORWARD” service to small business owners, Starpoint Credit Solutions is providing the instructions below to help you to see, print, and download a copy of your profile. We are hopeful this will allow the average small business owner to have a better understanding of what data is being represented about their company and how to successfully manage that data going forward.
