If you’ve always wanted to grow your web development business, but don’t have a clear idea on how or where to start – then what I’m about to share in this article may just prove to be useful.
Sure, you may be a talented web designer or developer but successfully scaling your business to ensure a stable, healthy financial position every single month is no easy task. However, with a clear strategy, you can implement action items that position your business for success: resulting to increased revenue and growth.
But before you proceed any further, I’d like you to read this quote from the CTO of Dijiwan (a digital marketing startup based in Bordeaux, France) so that you’ll appreciate more what could be considered “boring” to most people (such as business processes, customer service, business models, scalability, etc.), but are actually important components for a startup to make its mark and succeed:
Now, let’s look at 3 major ways to grow your business, so you’ll make more money month after month:
Business Growth Method No.1: Always be marketing your business
Look, all businesses that have been profitable over time never stopped marketing their products or services. They don’t wait for lean periods to come before they aggressively market, advertise or promote their businesses. Why? For three good reasons: 1.) to keep their brands top of mind, 2.) to establish themselves as prominent players in their fields, and 3.) to position themselves as the obvious choices when their prospects are ready to buy
Business Growth Method No.2: Establish business systems and SOPs
Is this actually applicable to you? I honestly believe so – every professional business needs standard operating procedures (SOPs) to become highly efficient. Because only when you have SOPs can you start improving your systems and processes to achieve optimized operations. Having optimized operations means higher profits. Higher profits will give you better cash flow. Better cash flow means your business is in good financial condition, positioning you well for growth.
Business Growth Method No.3: Improve your customer service
Exactly how should you do it? Here’s how: by delivering on your promises. By meeting – even exceeding – expectations. Your aim is to wow your clients. Your business should also have a way to get your clients’ inputs. Having this in place, you’ll know how you’re doing and will be able to innovate on areas of your business needing improvement.
