A recent article, Five Things Startups Must Do to Rev Up Business in 2016 by Tracy Olmstead Williams says that for a startup to grow, it will require several key things. This includes substantial funds, the ability to keep stakeholders interested, attracting the necessary talent and maintaining the team you have. But how?
Here are four best practices to do just this and rev up your business.
Writing can make you an industry expert. Commit to writing for blogs like TechCrunch, newsletters,business and trade publications. The key is not to sell information. Your goal is to offer your readers information they don’t have and knowledge that others aren’t offering. Post the work on your Facebook, Twitter and share it in your eNewsletter.
Speaking sharpens your thinking and messages. It is a great discipline to have a grasp of your marketing plan for the whole year. This way you don’t miss opportunities by missing deadlines.Panels and webinars are great opportunities for exposure to your target market. Webinars especially give you the ability to reach a niche audience transcending geographic limitations. Brainstorm with your team in agile office space where you need to be.
You can’t substitute the act of meeting with people in person. Create a calendar of events and conferences. For instance, you can look for a flexible meeting room for rent and set a conference with fellow businessmen and colleagues. This is about more than business and sales goals, it should be your aim to develop relationship through conversation. Such relationships increase your network and your life. You might just meet a key business partner who can take your business higher than you’d imagined.
Find a local nonprofit that could benefit from your services/products or volunteer as a guest lecturer at your local college. It’s not just a good thing to do, it’s good for business. Nearly 60 percent of Americans tend to buy a product connected with a nonprofit partnership.
