3 Things you can do for your small business in the New Year
It’s the new year soon so naturally resolutions come to mind. This is the right time for you to do the same for your business. Here are three things you can do for your small business in the New Year.
No matter how small, these things can make a huge difference in the long run. So give them a try. You can measure the difference they make each quarter.
Be more social
Have you been putting off doing your social media calendar and strategy? This is the best time to start fresh. Social media isn’t going anywhere. Like we said in our post, you need to be on Facebook. And you can’t be just on it once a month. You need a regular social media presence. But to do this, you need to have a plan. Start planning now. You need to be more engaged with your customers.
Work with your accountant
Accountants are not just for end of financial year tax requirements anymore. You want better cash flow and less headache during tax season? A strategy for the future of your business or a plan for when you retire? Find an accountant who can do these things for you. It is best to plan ahead instead of just putting out the fire when it comes. Better to be prepared.
Reassess your methods
Go through the results of your strategies the year before. Figure out which promos worked and which ones didn’t. Find out what was your most popular social media post and keep doing it. Go through the ‘suggestion box’ and see what you can do better. Businesses that keep changing with the times have more chances of surviving the future, and surviving well.
