Tips from June 30, 2009
The Small Business tips today will be about taking a step back and readjusting how you manage your business.
- If things are slow, change your look and feel about your business. Keep your business updated with current times and trends to catch potential customers' eyes.
- Ask for feedback from customers about what can be done to update your business. Loyal customers can give a great response as they are dedicated to your business.
- Recalculate your budget. Some of the money you thought was a good idea to spend in one area may be better in another. If needed, write up a modified budget and think about how you can save.
- Keep track of your office supplies. Take inventory and cut back on your overstocked supplies and focus your money on purchasing the essential ones.
