Secrets of maintaining a successful business

Competition is at its peak, irrespective of whether you are running an online business or an offline business. You are still in competition whether you are a start-up company or large enterprise. In general, generating optimum revenue out of the investment is not an easy task. It requires a lot of effort and planning.

In this article, I am writing effective and tested tips to achieve and maintain business growth. In a nutshell, I am sharing the business experiences and lessons that I learned in the last 20+ years of my business.

#Tip 1: Do not make unrealistic claims

If you are running an eCommerce store, be honest about the key specifications and benefits offered by your product. It’s good to highlight the main features of the product and sometimes even better to mention the product advantages if it adds value. Do not try to make false claims to entice the customers.

#Tip 2: Follow the 80-20 Rule

The 80-20 Rule states that 80% of results are derived from 20% of efforts. This signifies that a small amount of effort can lead to a large amount of results, if efforts are made in the right direction, at the right audience, time and place. Great results are not necessarily derived from working long hours and unending days. They come from working smartly on things that work best for your business. To magnify your business results exponentially, you should identify efforts that produce the biggest results and scale them.

#Tip 3: Always try to maintain a debt-to-equity ratio 

To maintain healthy business finances, never let your debt exceed your equity. You should always try to maintain a 1:1 Debt to Equity ratio. 

#Tip 4: Don’t be just an owner, take ownership too

Do not allow the success and failure of your company to be dependent on somebody else. The things that determine the success and failure of your business should be solely dependent on you. Change your players, but do not change your operations, control and goals you want to achieve.

#Tip 5: Understand how your business actually works.

Even if you hire an experienced team of professionals in your company, you still need to understand the strengths and their field of expertise. You need to ensure the role and work stream of every team member within your organisation.

#Tip 6: Make projections based on facts and figures

It’s safe to make business forecasts and projections based on prior history, authentic data, facts, and figures. At times based on your experience you may have a reasonable opinion to support your suggestions and figures, but it would not be a good idea to blind guess any future projections.

#Tip 7: Have a solid plan to measure your success

Where do you want your business to see in the next 5 years?

How will you achieve your business goals?

What parameters youll use to monitor the progress? 

To answer all these questions, it is vital to have short-term, medium-term and long-term business plans.

#Tip 8: Adopt new technology quickly

In this world of technological advancement, using outdated technology could be worse for your business. The sooner you adopt new technology, the more chances you have to increase the benefits for your business. Innovative practices do help to enhance the internal efficiency of the business, which is important for the firm’s success.

#Tip 9: Work with Freelancers

To avoid fixed expenses in terms of salaries, collaborate with professionals who work as freelancers. For the services and work that aren’t required regularly, hire people with specialised skills and knowledge. This will be a cost-effective way to get your work done.

#Tip 10: Analyse your competition

It is always recommended to study your competitors; you might learn some important business tips from them. Identify and examine the strengths and weaknesses of your competitors, analyse their strategies and spot the areas where they are most vulnerable. Analysing your competitors can help you to know in what areas you are lacking behind and what competitive advantages your business holds in the industry. Accordingly, you can plan your business strategies that work in a better way than your competitors.

#Tip 11: Be patient, creative and stay focused

Just because you chose the best website development company, developed your business website on the best web development platform and implemented the right business solutions does not mean your business is immediately going to make money. You need to be patient! Always make continuous efforts and look for new ways, ideas and approaches to improve your business.

#Tip 12: Do take out time for networking 

Try to take out time to attend industry events, join professional organisations, and conferences that can familiarise you with people or groups who can be important for your business. If you feel you aren’t good enough for networking, find a partner who can represent your business.

#Tip 13: Take care of your Customers 

Customer satisfaction should always be on your priority list. Be it any business, SME or large enterprise, the major portion of revenue comes from repeat customers. This is why retaining the existing customer is equally important as identifying and targeting new ones. Do take care of your customers and your customers will take care of your business.

#Tip 14: Dont be afraid of Risks

It’s important to take risks too! However, it is critical to balance risk-taking with safety. This is why we suggest you take calculated risks that have a higher probability to generate tremendous rewards. Make sure the return is worth the risk; thoroughly weigh the pros and cons when you decide to take big risks for your business.

Final Say! 

There is no one right way that guarantees business success. Following the best business practices, expert advises, effective financial management, and the tips listed above can give your venture a better chance of succeeding.
