Everyone makes new year resolutions, why shouldn’t businesses when more is at stake. These top 6 New Year resolutions can help you achieve new levels of business success, not to mention, make your life as a founder a lot easier.
1. Learn how to delegate
You have a vision for your business and you want everything to be executed just the way you like it. No one is more invested, or committed, and they don’t quite try as hard as you. We get it, but you have to let it go! No matter how capable you are, you can’t do it all.
Let someone else do some of the tasks for you. You don’t have to compromise on quality, you just have to hire a team that lives up to your high expectations. If you cannot afford to grow your team yet, there is always the option to outsource. Delegation is the key to a healthier work-life-balance, more importantly, it frees up your time to perform your primary duties of visioning, planning and leading!
You can delegate part of your work to Kiple to take a big load off your shoulders. Kiple is a mobile payment with an effective marketing and loyalty platform that gets your promotions across to targeted consumers.
2. Promote your business effectively and consistently
The days of ‘build it and they will come’ is long gone. Even if you are first and truly unique, copycats are waiting to pounce. Channel more resources into promoting your business effectively and regularly. To attract new customers and get them to spend with you often, you have to make marketing a priority.
Pay attention to marketing trends and what works well with your specific customer segment. Go on to craft a marketing plan and track results on a quarterly basis to know where to focus your resources.
