How you can help nurture your new business
It’s a given rule of thumb that you won’t see much profit in the first two years of an SMB. One, because of all of the money it requires to start up the business and two, because it takes time for your business to be recognized and grow. But if you notice your business not growing the way it should after the first two years, here are a few things that can help nurture your business.
Creating a business concept
A concept and theme adds considerable amount of character to a business. And for it to mold correctly, it takes time. Some people become impatient and dissociate their business from its foundation. This becomes the case for various reasons: losing faith, continuous edits, changing philosophies, etc. But staying on course with a good idea will be most beneficial. Think about the many big recognized brands such as Uber. Did this company every change their business concept/theme? No, not really. Did Microsoft ever change their identity? Not really. These companies established their ideas then continued to progress and grow into a larger idea. So building a business with a stable foundation in identity and theme is bound to pay off more than an ever-changing idea. In short, don’t become a chameleon with an SMB identity.
Being smart with the business
Technology is the modern version of “How to” books. They make life a lot simpler and a lot more convenient. Instead of using old-school point of sale systems, use something like an iPad POS system that create an overall upgrade to the business. From the back-office to inventory management, a modern POS system is bound to keep accounting a lot tighter.
A lot is emphasized on iPad POS systems because it not only helps with accounting but it’s also aesthetically pleasing. People knowing that you use a modern day system creates a mental trigger. And that mental trigger is a good thing because they will always associate your business of using modern technology.
