Keep Your Business Moving Forward During The Summer
Depending on what type of business you run, as we head in to Summer, you may be facing a slowdown of business and a quieter period. This got us thinking what you could do during this time, to help move your business forward ready for when it’s back to business as usual!
Search For Summer Themed Networking
During the summer months, there are usually lots of summer social style networking events going on, including BBQs for example. Why not do some research and book to attend some? This will help increase your network, potential clients and maybe lead to some new opportunities too!
Plan New Products Or Services
Use the Summer slowdown as a chance to review your current offerings and plan new products or services to introduce later in the year. It’s important to do this when you’re less busy, so you have lots of time to think, plan and goal set!
Add Value For Your Clients
Have a think about any areas you could add more value to your clients. Whether that’s providing a useful, regular report for them to show insight into your work for them, or updating your ways of contact so it’s easier for them to get in touch, set time aside to review your current processes.
The Summer is a good time to refresh on training or a time to learn something new, as well as running team building exercises with your staff, so be sure to make the most out of this time!
As small business owners, few of us have the luxury of big teams or experienced peers to talk to, and it can feel quite lonely at times. It’s hard making all the decisions, working through new ideas, implementing changes, staying compliant – the list goes on… wouldn’t it be nice to have someone to talk to about it all!
