1. SET NEW GOALS EVERY MONTH
This might look simple but you would be shocked to realize that a lot of small business owners fail to do it.
Most of the time, you become comfortable with the sales that you’re making, fall into a routine and even forget that you can make so much more.auntyronke
How do you curb this?
Every month, have 1 or 2 goals you would want to achieve before the end of that month along with action steps of how you plan to achieve it.
Not only will you be excited once more, because this is challenging yourself to do better, you will also be taking your business to higher levels as you achieve those goals!
2. IMPROVE YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA GAME
Social media is a repository of leads and potential customers which can guarantee you more sales and higher profits. No matter how great you think you are at using social media, you can always get better. That being said, here are some things you can do to improve your social media reach
- Post better content (engaging and shareable), consistently
- Engage better with your followers and customers
- Introduce something new to your followers: it could be a weekly game where prizes are won like a trivia, quiz or anything that’s not too hard but very fun for your fans to participate in. The prizes can be a product you sell so that one new follower can be converted into a fan.
The thing with social media is that you might not be able to do it effectively so if you realize that you need an expert, please hire one! A lot of people think it’s easy but social media content creation and management is a whole different ball game!
Improving your social media game will take your business to a whole new level because you will get more followers converted into customers just because of your engaging content. It will also make you more reliable and trustworthy in the eyes of your existing customers who will need no convincing to buy from you over and over.
Most small business owners run their business all by themselves and you probably do too. However, it is important to recognize when you need a helping hand so you do not sabotage your business by yourself.
You should delegate small tasks that are important but do not need to be done by you. For example, if you have a store, you can get a store attendant to stay in while you attend to more pressing matters on how to move your business forward.
Doing this affords you the time and energy to focus on the future of your business, take a break and rest as well as brainstorm ideas to get your business to the next level which you might not be able to do if you have to handle every mundane task in your small business.
4. FOCUS ON YOUR BEST PRODUCT AND UP YOUR SALES OFFER FOR IT
Every business has a bestselling product no matter how small that business is. Ask yourself, what is your bestseller? That product that makes you the most profit.auntyronke
Isolate that product and make it more attractive so that it attracts even more sales.
- You could pair it with the least selling product and offer it as a bundle so that the other product can get increased sales as well.
- You could increase the product size and offer it at a slightly discounted price.
- You could even run a promo for it to create more awareness for that product
These moves will ensure that a wider audience comes in contact with your brand and you gain their trust which will make them want to patronize your other offerings.
Taking your business to the next level involves consistent work for you to see results. In all, always remember that your customers are your most prized possessions and should be treated as such!
