Business growth is vital. But it’s easy to get stuck at a certain level and be unsure of how to move forward. Here are a few ideas to get your business out of a slump.
Focus on What You Have
It’s easier to market to existing customers and prospects than it is to get new leads. Your current customers are the lifeblood of your business so do everything in your power to keep them happy. Finding new customers costs a lot more than reselling to one of your current customers. Keep in contact with all your past customers by email, postcards or even phone calls.
Go Beyond Wow
Find the one thing that makes your business different than your competitors. If there isn’t anything, then create your wow factor. Offer something that makes your customers say, “Wow, I can’t believe they’re doing that!”
Grow as a Leader
Never stop increasing your skill level by continuing to learn through new books and courses. Also, learn to communicate better and listen closely to your customers and employees.
Recognize your limits. Build partnerships that will cover any areas that you’re weak in but will improve your overall business. A valuable partnership is where you both feel you got the better end of the deal so make sure you give as much value as you receive. Business growth will occur when you partner with other companies in mutually beneficial ways.
Spend some time studying every system in your business. You may have increased sales but then have trouble delivering the product on time. Or you may have an amazing product but poor customer service. The turnover of your employees may be dragging you down.
Find the systems that have bottlenecks and work to improve them. All systems must work smoothly before you experience the business growth you want.
Systematize Your Sales and Marketing Funnel
There must be cash flow to keep your business thriving. Nothing happens in any business until someone makes a sale so make sure your sales and marketing funnels are working at the highest level. See what your competitors are doing or hire an outside consultant. Test and retest until you build strong funnels that work over and over for different products. These systems will be your secret to business growth.
Grow Your Employees
Offer training to allow your employees to expand their knowledge. This not only makes them more valuable but it keeps them engaged and growing with the company. You shouldn’t be the only leader in your company. Build up your employees so they can take leadership roles in various areas.
