Happy New Year
Make your perfect business New Years resolution
It’s 2018 and the Holidays are over which means, your pants are tighter and your wallet is getting lighter. You keep telling yourself that tomorrow is the day you change your diet, spending habits or daily routine, but it’s cold and dark outside once you leave work. At this time of year, many people fall into a SAD (seasonal adjustment disorder) haze, where you just feel bummed out. How can we shift our thinking?
The New Years bell has rung and the winter equinox has passed, which means longer days and more sunshine. This is also the time we all start acting on our New Years resolutions. These are often personal, like joining the gym (if you haven’t been to a gym in January, imagine Boxing day shopping, except everyone is in workout gear). Usually people start planning these resolutions over the busy week with friends and family between Christmas and New Years.
New Years is unique in that it inspires us to evolve for the better. It creates a movement of people wanting something to change, which can initiate support and understanding from those around you that we are in this together.
As a business owner, you should be thinking about how you can take part in this movement. Have you considered sales goals you want to reach, or what resolutions your company should be aiming for? For example, asking yourself “how can we make the client experience better?”
Perhaps your business needs a fresh online look, or a streamlined way to organize contacts and create invoices. Whatever the issue is, you should be proactively reflecting during the holiday break. Everyone is planning to start fresh. How will you?
An update of a stale website is one solution. However, a beautiful website is only half the battle; it has to be functional and easy to navigate in order to provide real value. Another great way to start fresh is to get your website noticed – this is where Search Engine Optimization comes in. With a little hard work and dedication, you can get your website bouncing from page six to page one in no time.
