Published On : 2017-01-19
Admit it, your business is your life. Without it where would you be? It is the future for your family and successors, and provides an exciting future for you this year. Imagine growing your business and developing it to run without you in the office every day, answering calls and putting out fires. Imagine spending more time doing the things you can only dream of right now, be it climbing a mountain, travelling the world or visiting space, these things will only be achievable if your business is successful.
Create a sustainable environment.
How are you going to excel in the competitive business world of 2017? Create a sustainable environment for your company to thrive in.
A sustainable business involves long-term, strategic planning that brings your growing company into a positive environment. Great culture, enthusiasm and determination to do better is your key to success. Engage with strong influencers in your industry, learn how to improve your business skills. Which area are you not confident in? Every human being has their weaknesses. Take a course and dedicate yourself to learn more to become an expert at something you once were afraid of doing.
Go about making great changes! Manage sustainability by improving processes, pursuing growth and adding value to your company. New systems, new ventures and a whole new outlook on the business world will bring huge potential for growth. Listen to your customers and your people. Believe what they say, act on it and prosper by adding value and boosting growth.
Survive industry downturns.
The economy moves in cycles. Survive industry downturns this year by diversifying. Being in multiple industries will keep your income consistent during good and bad times. Industries can be influenced by various factors, one being government priorities and spending. Find out what is going to influence your industry this year and get in there. Take your brand seriously and differentiate yourself from your competitors - be that one-and-only, indispensable, go-to supplier that your customer can't survive without.
Take the multi-national company 3M as a great example of providing for diverse industries. Across the globe, 3M is inspiring innovation and igniting progress, while contributing to true global sustainable development through environmental protection, corporate and social responsibility and economic progress. They are applying science and innovation to make a real impact in every person’s life around the world. They own many well known brand names and sell to a whole range of consumers, covering the automotive, commercial solutions, communications, consumer, design & construction, electronics, energy, healthcare, manufacturing, mining, oil & gas, safety and transportation industries. This huge customer base allows the company to take advantage of upturns in each industry.
Build great relationships.
Build lasting relationships to maintain strong name recognition and a solid reputation. Being a roofing contractor, roof and height safety is important to you. Give valuable information to your client on roof safety, suggesting fall arrest systems, metal walkways and aluminum roof ladders that will get their buildings up to code and provide lasting fall protection for engineers and future roof maintenance. Property owners will want to know their buildings are legally safe and not a dangerous liability. Roof railing protection and safe access ladders installed to code will give them that assurance.
Give this exciting year your very best, give your clients exactly what they want and be prepared to succeed in 2017!
