Keeping in mind the diversity of audience that may read this article, I’m going to outline the small business growth strategies for all types of Industries, from Manufacturing to Pharma, Retail, Technology, Finance and Health care, from Online to Offline, from Products to Services.
Identify your Ideal Customer
It is important to first understand who your “Ideal Customer” is. The Ideal Customer’s profiling should include their location, things such as the type of music they like, the social networking websites they use, lifestyle choices, the brands they prefer, where do they shop, how do they search for information, their beliefs etc. With in-depth profiling of your customer’s behavior, you can convert them into potential sales.
Focus on your Strength
As an owner of a small business, you tend to be the jack of all trades which helps you expand business with low profits. Instead of working on low costs for multiple projects, it is better to identify your strength and stick to it. This will help you save time, increase revenue and expand business more effectively.
No one knows your business better than you do. Find out the key differentiator that sets you apart from your competitors. Use this differentiator as your USP and let it become your brand Identity.
Competition Watch & Kill
In the early stages of business growth, it is easy to grow by following your competitor’s strategy which has been successful. You don’t have to start from scratch or break your head for customer acquisition. You just have to target your competitor’s customers who aren’t happy.
