The year has come to an end, which means new beginnings. You are prime to make new clients, refresh connections with old clients, and to make new business goals to accomplish these tasks.
But where do you start?
We took a look at some New Years Resolutions statistics and came up with a few pointers to help you prepare for your best business year yet:
Tip 1. Your business can help others accomplish their resolutions.
It’s not only the fitness-based businesses that are going to be booming this time of the year as people resolve to get into shape; resolutions come in all shapes and sizes, and odds are, you offer a service, class or workshop that can help with one of those. You just need to identify how you help others and promote that.
Can you help others become more organized in their finances or their homes? Do you offer services to help relationships? Maybe you offer a beauty or wellness service that will allow people to start off the new year as the best version of themselves?
Tip 2. Resolutions aren’t just for individuals.
What do you want your business to accomplish this year? We all have goals and big dreams, so you should ask yourself, why not this year? Maybe it’s increasing revenue, getting 50 new clients, or offering more classes? It could be as simple as wanting to be able to spend less time working and more time with your family.
Don’t forget to look back on the past year and see where you could’ve improved your business or where things might have went wrong. That’s a great starting point for defining what you want to accomplish this year.
Just make sure you outline your business resolutions with actionable items and deadlines. And make a reminder to check back on them throughout the year to see your progress and possibly reassess.
step 3. Communicate with your clients.
Begin with a simple Happy New Year. Schedulicity has email marketing templates to help you with these well wishes, and social media is perfect for this type of communication. Maybe you’re even offering specials for the new year that you can spread on these outlets, too.
Then let them know the services, classes and workshops you have to help with their resolutions; and tell them you’re on their team for success. That includes following up in a few weeks, in a few months and throughout the rest of the year to make sure they’re still on track.
Now if these tips weren’t enough, our designer got excited and made you an infographic, too – because, let’s face it, everything is better with pictures:
