It’s a new year and by now you have probably started planning your new business goals. Do you want increased success this year or more chances to enjoy the success you’ve achieved? Our Top Tips below are designed to help you do both. Strike a better work-life balance and increase your business success in 2021.
1. Promote Your Business Regularly
More often than not, promoting a small business slips to the bottom of the to-do list, unless you have a dedicated marketing team. If you want to attract new customers, you have to make promotion a priority. Take the time to work on creating a marketing plan with your team. Do your research, check out what your competitors in the industry are doing. And most importantly make sure to follow through and not lose sight of the long term goals.
2. Drop What’s Not Working and Move On
Not all products or services will be super sellers, not all sales methods will work for everyone and not all suppliers or contractors will have exactly what you are looking for. If you have tried and tested and it’s still not working then stop using it. Don’t invest a lot of time and energy into trying to make the unworkable workable. Move on. Something better will turn up.
3. Join a New Networking Group
Talking to other business people is sure to spark new ideas, refine old ones and make new contacts. Make the effort to go to networking events or join a new organisation decided to your industry. This is sure to revitalize you and your business. Approaching networking events with a strategy will make your next time out a more successful experience.
4. Celebrate your Team
All work and no play is a recipe for mental and physical disaster. Celebrate and give back to the people that have helped you create and build your business. If you struggle to free up regular time to celebrate your successes, why not schedule a fun team bonding afternoon once a month or quarter?
