1. Make good use of social media
In terms of marketing, there isn’t really a more cost effective solution for reaching your ideal audience. Social media allows you to engage with people who it would previously have been impossible to reach.
2. Networking for contacts
Don’t underestimate the value of knowing the right people. By networking you can build a whole host of worthwhile contacts that might be able to provide assistance to you in some unexpected way. You might also get some opportunities to make a sale.
3. Use Virtual Assistants
Running your own business doesn’t always have to be a burden that you bear alone. Virtual Assistants, particularly those that handle Back Office tasks in the cloud, can be deployed to help tackle your workload and avoid the need to hire proper employees.
4. Bootstrap your purchases
Don’t spend money when it isn’t required. The principles of bootstrapping ensure business owners are frugal when it comes to spending money and removing any non-essential expenditure from their business plan.
5. Get some focus
Avoid distractions that might derail your business. Every decision you make will have consequences so try to understand what they might be, before they actually occur.
6. Plan your future
Without a plan to establish the general direction of your business, it is difficult to know where you are going. Make sure that at the very least all the big decisions are thoroughly planned beforehand, making use of all the data available to you at the time.
7. Utilise the Cloud
There are so many benefits available to businesses which adopt the cloud, the most important of these being improving your back office to make it more affordable, integrated, highly customisable and adaptable in the future.
