STEP 1 - Creating a Profile
Go to the registration page by either following the link below, or clicking “Register/Login as a client” in the top left on the Business Station website then choosing the yellow “Register as a new user” button.
Below is a screenshot from the Business Station website:
Enter your email and choose a password on the Register page. If you want you can choose to use the “Register with Google” or “Register with Microsoft” option, but I only recommend doing this if you are certain that the service is linked to the email you wish to use to receive correspondence (e.g. appointment reminders) from the Business Station.
Note: Because of how the ASBAS program is funded, you will need an ABN to register. If you are not the owner of the business, you can use your employer’s ABN, but it’s best to check with them first!
Open your email (from any device) and click the blue link. If you don’t receive it within 10 minutes, make sure you check your junk mail folder! It will come from the email address “*protected email*”
When you click on the link, you should be redirected to the below screen where you can log in using your email address and the password you entered in Step 2. If you accepted the link on a different device, you can click the “Login” link in the top right of the “Confirm Email” screen.
Once you have logged in you will see the below screen. Before you can book any sessions, it is a requirement of the program funding that you complete your needs analysis.
STEP 2 - Needs Analysis
In the Needs Analysis, it will ask you for some information about your business and personal experience with business advisors. Most of them are pretty straight forward, and just answer honestly. There’s no right or wrong – it’s just so we can deliver the best possible services to Business Station clients.
On the last section, be sure to tick the boxes for anything you might want help with either now or in the future, so we know what opportunities to send you information about.
Once completed, hit the “Close” button in the bottom right corner of the window and it should take you back to the Client Portal where you will now have the ability to book advisors.
STEP 3 - Booking an Appointment
Once you have completed your Needs Analysis, you should see a list of advisors in your area. Note that most of our advisors also offer online sessions which might be more practical for you – all you need for an online session is a web camera and a microphone! Most laptops will have these built in, and your advisor will send you a link to start your meeting.
To view all advisors (not just those in your physical area) click the “See all advisors” button at the top:
To book with a Ross, type 'Ross' in to the search field at the top of the page. You can leave the postcode blank if you are happy to book an online or phone session, or filter by postcode if you prefer to find someone you can meet with in person.
You can click on the relevant icon in the “Book Advisor” column next to the advisor you would like to book with. If you are having trouble choosing someone, you can view more about that person by clicking on the info symbol next to their name.
To finalise the booking, it will then ask you to choose a time/date for the appointment and then for credit card information to make payment. Once this is completed you will receive a confirmation email.
If you wish to reschedule the appointment, the easiest way to do this is simply get in contact with Ross.
