What do you own that you would be willing to put on the line in…
In our last blog, we listed a number of effective ways to get your 2019 started off on the right foot. Among them, of course, was going through the super quick and easy merchant cash advance application process offered by Synergy Merchants. Believe it or not, you can have an injection of cash into your business within 24 hours – and with that cash, you can do anything you like!
Many of our clients have utilized their merchant cash advances to renovate their stores, buy new equipment, launch their latest advertising campaigns, hire and train new staff and even open new store locations.
What do you have in mind for your growing your business in 2019? Here are three important steps to take:
1. Work on building a stronger team.
No one likes firing employees – and no one should. However, far too often, a company is stunted by the one bad apple in its bunch. The importance of teamwork cannot be underestimated. Having a strong team is a key ingredient to business success and its inevitable growth. Be sure to work closely with employees who may not be performing at their best. But when the time is right, do not be afraid to cut the appropriate ties.
Inc.com also suggests you put effort into hiring top-quality employees. “Eventually, you’ll need help managing the demands of a growing business,” says the site, “Hire team members who add new skills and abilities to your team…Today, many accomplished professionals are offering their services on a freelance or contract basis, allowing you to hire talent when you need it without paying for a full-time employee.”
2. Encourage your team to be active on social media.
In our last blog, we championed the use of social media to grow your brand’s reach. However, it should be noted that you shouldn’t be the only one working on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the like. The best advocates for your business are the people who work for it. Happy employees, in fact, make the best marketers for your business. To grow in 2019, you’ll definitely need the help of your team promoting your brand online.
“Good talent, attracts good talent,” insists Medium.com, “Encourage your employees to advocate on your behalf by highlighting their experience on social media. This not only gains wider exposure of your brand but is a great tool to recruit high quality talent.”
3. Develop stronger content for your site.
We’re talking about blogs, customer testimonials and videos, for starters. In today’s world, the most effective advertising campaigns are those that include real people. In other words, customer reviews have greater impacts on the average consumer than a standard television commercial. Invest some money in developing customer-centric online content. It’s a great way to attract more positive attention.
“We knew years ago that people were running away from traditional ads,” notes John Hall on Forbes.com, “A Nielsen study from 2015 showed that the top four most-trusted sources of advertising were: people you know, branded sites, editorial sites, and reviews. Ads are near the bottom of that list, and that fact hasn’t really changed.”
