If you run or own your business, there are certain tricks and tips you need to know in order to grow it properly. After all, if you aren't growing your business, then it is dying. Don't let your competitors catch up or surpass you this year. Get a head start with the right actions early in the year and enjoy success for the rest.
Many companies today are focused on online opportunities. These can be great leads, but don't neglect local customers. Get out there and hand out fliers, cards, and attend networking events to build a local following. Reward your repeat customers and keep them coming back. From an HR perspective, local leads can also be great ways to find new talent, connect with competitors, and clients. Use your local events as a place to network, find sales, and improve advertising techniques.
Business can be a hard road if you try to go it alone. Consider getting a professional involved in some of your processes. A third person perspective can often be just what you need to change things up. Consulting firms can do this, or you can even work with a mentor who knows you and your business. Communicate with others to achieve the vision you want for your business' future.
There are probably avenues you have not considered when it comes to getting more attention for your business. And if you don't advertise correctly in today's noisy world, you're going to be in for a world of hurt. Consider investing more money upfront in resources like social media. Do posts regularly on Facebook and Twitter to get more customers in the top end of your funnel.
