We're three months into 2013, which means those new year business resolutions and personal resolutions should've been resolved or be in the process of resolving, right? You should be in better shape from going for runs more often, saving more dollars from less impulse buying and that smoking habit should've been flicked into the ashtray. But what about the New Year business resolutions? Have you analysed what goals you set in December last year as your New Year business resolutions and whether they have been reached? Even if you didn't establish some New Year business goals, for whatever reason - maybe business at the end of the year was too hectic; this post is still for you. In this post is a list of New Year business resolutions that your business might have and ideas on how you could be achieving them if you are having trouble, and if you don't have any New Year business goals set you can still employ them into the current New Year business stance you are trying to attain for 2013.
Within your new year business there are five sectors you as a business owner/manager should remember; the community that you work in, customers, your employees, the business itself and you as a leader.
Firstly, have you given back to your community as a New Year business resolution? You could donate time or money into a local community branch of a charity. You could get your team together and work behind the scenes on an initiative, host a fundraiser or even get your hands dirty by getting physically involved; for example you might be a construction business and your local community's playground needs some work done. By doing your but for the community and including your team you are boosting moral in your business and growing a positive reputation. And it can be a reoccurring thing you do throughout the year, not just a New Year business resolution.
Now, you've done your bit for the community fro your New Year business goals, what have you done for your loyal customers? You could update them on your business news and include a personal note on how they contribute to your business and maybe add in a wee perk, like a discount. This will have your loyal customers telling everyone how they add to your business, from your New Year business letter, and by doing so how they got discount.
Two major points to a great business are the team of employees and the function of the business. Under your New Year business resolutions, have you paid attention to your team? Do they know how much you value their efforts? It's time to insentivise… Why not host a end of summer work-do, perhaps a day out at the golf course followed by a upmarket dinner in the city, all paid for by the employer of course. The next importance, business function, is a no-brainer New Year business resolution. If a good, service, piece of equipment, supplier, customer or employee isn't pulling their weight it is probably to remove that dead weight.
When it comes to you as the business owner and running the New Year business show, it is also time to take an analytical look at yourself. In the New Year business are you really listening to your team, customers, suppliers and shareholders? Are you up-to-date with the industry and markets? Are you keeping up with the latest training and growth of your expertise to make sure you are engaged in the future of your business, not just the new year business. As you may have noticed, these points aren't only geared towards the New Year business. How is your time being managed? As most business owners/leaders/managers will say, there just isn't enough hours in the day.
This then leads me to you. Are you being a good role model within the New Year business goals, and overall? And are you treating others (employees, suppliers, customers and shareholders) as you would like to be treated? Remember, more often than not, you are dealing with other people so as a New Year business resolution, make sure you are working with them.
Lastly, promote your business. You are a quarter of the way into the New Year business and are you promoting your business effectively? Is it time to step it up and invest in some new ideas? You don't want the same old efforts for promotion because these can be less effective with potential client's seeing the same thing over and over. Make sure new and exciting ideas for promotion are a part of your New Year business resolutions.
Even though this article is about New Year business resolutions the ideas raised can actually be applied to your business all year round. This is one way we can give back to the community, showing you some insider ideas on the New Year business scheme.
