What are your New Year’s Resolutions for your Small Business?

Every year at this time, we hear everyone’s New Year’s resolutions, whether it’s losing weight, spending more time with your family, or giving it your all.  As we move into the new year, let’s not forget to focus on ways to improve our businesses, too.  Let’s just not give up on these this year…
 
Susan Ward discusses ten great resolutions that you should focus on in the upcoming new year.  One of our favorites is #2 … “Promote your business regularly and consistently.”  She says:
 
“Too often the task of promoting a small business slips to the bottom of the to-do list in the press of urgent tasks. If you want to attract new customers, you have to make promotion a priority. Make a New Year resolution to hire a marketing expert, or take the time to create a marketing plan on your own and follow through.”
 
Take an honest look at your marketing strategy now.  Are you doing all that you can to promote your business and generate more people wanting to use your services or purchase your products?
