Part 1 – The First 5 Ways
The year 2020 is almost fading, and 2021 is on the doors. Technology made things easy for many businesses, yet large number of businesses did not have the chance to grow and improve their revenues. As a result, some were under the risk of shutting down or bankruptcy. This is not some magical tools, charming methods that will guide to your way of success, but I guarantee, if you follow up these 10 ways, you will boost your business in an incredible way. These are 10 practical ways to boost your business, increase your revenues and build a brand that becomes a well-known and most-needed brand. You may need to get rid of all distractions, take notes and be serious to start your success.
Do you have priorities in your business? If yes, did you write them down and give them more thoughts on how to proceed? If no, do you think that your business can meet success if there are no priorities? Starting new business may seem easy but maintaining them is the trickiest part. If you have been conducting your business for quite sometime without giving much thought, then you must reconsider and write down all your priorities. Things get ugly and mixed up when priorities are not set up.
Let us give it an example
Jane has a beauty salon in a very busy town. But for some reason customers are not coming in or returning. Jane needs to set priority and she has a list of them, where (1) she wants to increase quality of the service she provides (2) build a software that tells her if customers are satisfied. In this case, building the software takes time, so it is highly (and logically) recommended to start with enhancing the quality of the services.
Ahmed is a freelancer working from home and he is interested in writing articles and growing his business online. He wants to publish an article or two every day and keep an eye on his website performance. Checking the website performance is no doubt important but focusing too much of the statistics may waste value time in which he can write even more articles or at least write quality articles.
Look at your time management skills if they require more improvement then do improve them. It will help your business grow and gain profits. Do not waste your invaluable time doing things less prioritized. If this step is fulfilled, then move on to the second way.
SECOND: Diversify Your Marketing Methods
You should never stick to one marketing method, particularly when you are not getting the results you want for your business. There are many methods out there that you can use for the advantage of your business. Here are some methods that you may consider growing your business.
- Pay per click advertising (PPC)
- Classified ads
- Marketing through social networks
- Writing articles on your business (Blogging)
- Using YouTube ads.
Using multiple methods is extremely powerful, without a doubt, and if your business is new, consider writing an article and publish it on blogs (many bloggers provide such a service). Other methods that will your business insanely are:
- Take good care of your blog’s SEO
- Use backlinking or link building tools
- Never neglect offline marketing (word-of-mouth)
- Email marketing
I am not sure if you are using the above methods but if you have never tried any of them, then you have to. Imagine if your business is in a good state and it is doing “just fine”, don’t you think that improving it to be doing “excellent” is better!
Are you serious about enhancing your business and grow it to the maximum levels you desire? Then this is not an option, outsourcing is very critical. Do you think that the Ford Motor Company made every single one of its car by itself? If it did then do you think the company would be where they are today? Outsourcing their work to enough people, who are good at their work and know what they are doing, enables the company to reach the success level that they desire.
You’ve heard the term “Two heads are better than one.” This is true in many aspects, professionally and in personal levels. It’s kind of like that will outsourcing. If you can produce 10 services a day with perfect customer satisfaction rate, that is great. But don’t you think that outsourcing more 10 services will be even greater? That will make the number of services you provided 20 services. The outsourcing method has a hidden value that most people don’t pay attention to. It is a great way of marketing your service. Don’t you think so?
Awesome! This has DOUBLED your profits and marketing effort. You just need to focus on following and implementing these ways and you will be astonished with the results. Furthermore, you may know that outsourcing will allow you to use the millionaire mindset. Since there are people capable of doing things better, when it comes to certain tasks or skills, then why not hire them instead of competing against them?
FOURTH: Video Marketing
You cannot imagine how important it is to have a video marketing campaign. People prefer to watch video instead of reading ads. You can get a tailored video for your business just by outsourcing it. Find someone to do the video for your business and start marketing it on YouTube. You know that YouTube is owned by Google, so when people look for specific terms or keywords, your video may popup, if you do a good video and take good care about the SEO.
If you can stand in front of the camera and record a short video (1 to 1.5 minutes) that will be marvelous. Moreover, remember to use the desired KEYWORDS to enable google engines to recognize and list your video. By the way, using YouTube is FREE, so never waste this FREE marketing tool, just use it to the best possible ways.
FIFTH: Offline Business
Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Focusing on online marketing and overlooking offline methods is so wrong. You can use flyers, business cards and brochures to tell the people what you are offering. Put your phone numbers or some links on them, so they will visit or give you a call when they find what they are looking for.
Look for relevant places where you can put your flyers or business cards. May be a bookstore, gas station, restaurant, gym, etc. It can generate more traffic to your website than you might have NEVER got if you had not put your flyers and/or business cards. Use newspaper ads, car magnets, etc. you can be as creative as you can in this type of marketing.
