The end of the year is a good time to reflect on your business’s progress over the past year and plan how you want your business to develop in the coming year. If you have trouble setting realistic goals for your business, we have shared a few resolutions that are actually attainable and effective. These New Year’s resolutions are designed to help you set realistic goals and practices rather than unrealistic ideas that are so far out of reach they only lead to frustration. So welcome the year 2020 with a clear 20/20 vision for your business.
Resolution #1: Be Consistent At Marketing and Promotions
Marketing has changed. It’s no longer about what company has the bigger billboard or longest commercial. Marketing has now become all about consistency and being personal. If you want to attract new customers and interact with current ones, you have to make promotion and social marketing a priority. Set up a marketing strategy that works for your business.
Resolution #2: Don’t Just Have More Meetings, But More Meaningful Meetings
You may want to change the way you handle meetings going into the new year. Yes, meetings are necessary, but how often you hold meetings doesn’t actually mean that progress is being made. When you hold meetings going into 2020, make sure your meetings have goals and points that are not only being addressed but solved by the end of the meeting. Keep track of what worked and what didn’t work, set new directions or adjust old goals. Not only will this help you avoid costly mistakes and stay on track, but you’ll feel more productive and focused.
Resolution #3: Have A Plan To Grow
Business owners may expect their business to grow year after year. But expecting and planning are two different things. If you want to ensure that your business grows, you have to make a plan to make sure it happens. You also want to make sure you are growing personally at the same rate as your business. Make personal resolutions to learn new skills. Business consultants, trainers, and business coaches can help set you on a path to adopting new skills. Depending on how you choose to learn, you may meet new and interesting people, who may become customers, colleagues, or friends.
We hope you have a great and successful 2020! If you choose to apply any of these New Year’s resolutions throughout your year, you’ll put your business on the right track to accomplishing your goals.
