Are you thinking about growth and expansion for your business this year?
It’s a new year and it is only natural for you to think about how you can expand your business and watch it thrive in 2020. While you may know that you want your business to grow and expand you might not be sure exactly how to go about making this happen.
Here are some tips that will help you expand your business in 2020.
1. Start Up-Selling More
Do you already have a product and service that is in high demand? If this is the case you have the perfect launching pad for a new product.
Create another product that complements the product that is already selling well. You know your customer base better than anyone else, sit down and do a careful evaluation of what kind of service you could attach to one that is already successful.
When customers purchase the popular product or service you can gently nudge them in the direction of your new add-on explaining how it would enhance the first product to make it even better.
2. Dig Deeper Online
If your business is done mostly online then you are halfway to a successful online expansion. Even if you are primarily a brick and mortar business you can take a look at what you are already doing online. Is there is any way that you can expand your business to a wider geographical audience?
With the advent of social media, this is more possible than ever. It may be that you are trying to find more customers for your products and services locally while ignoring people who are outside of your geographical location or even abroad.
If you do decide that this is a viable option, you will need to design your advertising campaign in a way that will appeal to persons in specific geographical locations.
3. Increase Your Efficiency with Delivery Services
Sometimes in order to grow and expand a business, you need to look at customer satisfaction. For example, you may want to think about offering a delivery service to your customers either for free or at a cost.
Amazon perfected this model by offering delivery to its customers’ door. People are even willing to pay for this kind of service even if you can’t do it for free. If it is not often done in your field it is something that will distinguish you from your competitors.
For example, if you have a business that manufactures trucks, once a customer orders one you can tell your customers about ATC Driveaway, let them know that you have partnered with a service that will deliver their trucks safely and quickly to them.
The bottom line is that no matter what type of business you are in, people like delivery service, especially fast and efficient.
