6 Tips for Your Small Business in 2023

As we welcome the new year, business owners should consider ways to expand and grow their businesses. Why? Because growth is crucial for reaching the right audience and improving your sales.

Let’s look at the following six tips for growing and expanding your small business, in 2023.


Analyse Your 2022 Performance

Look at your successes and failures in 2022 and make a comprehensive list to calculate debt, profit, close ratio, and other key performance indicators (KPIs). Try to stay as objective as you can.

Analysing these factors helps you understand your business outcomes and establish practical business goals for the coming year. You can also develop a spending plan for 2023 based on your financial projections, the team here at Glance Consultants can assist with this.


Accelerate Your Digital Transformation 

Transformative technologies play a huge role in businesses. For instance, artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing, and the internet of things (IoT) have enabled businesses to explore new operations and expand.

These technologies also help automate manual workloads, centralise disparate data streams, and conduct in-depth analyses of huge amounts of data.

Customer relationship management (CRM) systems and enterprise resource planning can help boost productivity and improve business efficiency. These elements are very lucrative for business growth, as an expanding company will have to deal with more data and deliverables.


Know Your Numbers 

Your revenue isn’t really yours unless it’s all in the bank. So, it’s important to know exactly what’s owed to you and when. Setting up email reminders through automation software or software such as Xero helps to streamline your payments.

Plus, you should also know your cash position at all times. Why? Because having an overview of your expected cash movements can help you maintain and track your funds. Glance Consultants can assist you with cash flow management.


Revise Sales Strategies 

Giving your clients what they want will help you offer a unique selling proposition (USP) and keep your leads interested in your products and services at all times. So, it’s important to analyse market trends and find out what your potential clients are interested in.

Once you do that, optimise your services and goods to what you find in your research. CRM systems can also assist you in developing lucrative sales strategies that are more effective and targeted.


Celebrate Small Milestones 

Celebrating milestones is important, no matter how big or small.

But share your company wins with your employees. Why? Because it will help you increase employee motivation and satisfaction, which will, in turn, enhance time-to-completion, task delivery, and business efficiency.


Review Your Supply and Costs Chain 

Reviewing the amount your customers pay for your services/products is essential when setting goals for the new year. This is because performing regular analyses helps you see whether or not you’re operating in line with your production costs, demand, and competitors.

A business or competitive analysis will allow you to find ways you could streamline the business process, such as using CRM software to communicate with and save your customers’ personal information.

Similarly, it could help you understand whether you need to make a change in product or service prices.
