What do you own that you would be willing to put on the line in…
If you’re a business owner who has plans of expanding, you’re likely someone who rummages through a myriad of business ideas on a regular basis. Should I open a new location? Would it be a good idea to partner up with another business? Is a new product line in order? Of course, there are many different ways to expand a business. In today’s blog, we’ll consider a few steps that can help you to do so successfully.
Tap into a new market.
In today’s world, you are not pigeonholed into having to market to any one specific location on Earth. With the internet comes the ability to expand your business worldwide. Expanding globally is important for businesses that may be finding that their local communities have too many similar options to what they’re offering. As California-based corporate service company, NNRoad points out, at some point, for businesses, the local market becomes saturated.
Their website acknowledges that global expansion “is a step that many companies are afraid of because it comes with challenges.” However, it notes that it also offers “many opportunities because you are able to sell your products or services to more users. You should find local partners to manage part of your business operations and especially those aspects, like HR and payroll, that can cause you to lose money and being non-compliant with the local law.”
Acquire another business.
Is it time to swallow up some competition? Might it be worthwhile to expand your offerings through the acquisition of another brand? If you’re the owner of a gym, for example, you may wish to consider purchasing a clothing store that sells workout gear. The combination of the two brands certainly speaks to the needs of the same audience.
“Sometimes, acquiring other businesses is a very quick way to grow your own business,” says R.L. Adams on Entrepreneur.com, “If you can find competitors or businesses in other industries that would complement your own, you could use them as platforms to scale fast. Take a look within your industry and even outside of it to find potential for potential opportunities.”
Partner with another business.
“If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” goes the old adage. Partnering with another business can help to not just eliminate a competitor, but grow your brand stronger in order to outshine the others. A joint venture or acquisition agreement with another business that has a larger market share can work wonders in growing your brand, says NNRoad.
“You can leverage your combined business’s strengths and obtain access to resources and markets that you would not otherwise be able to do,” notes their website, “Your business’s success depends upon having the best strategies for business expansion. You want to expand your business to the fullest extent possible so that you can serve a greater number of consumers and provide better customer service.”
