Cultivating and Facilitating Growth
There are two main ways that we visualise our business. The first is the early days when you are running on little sleep coffee, ideas and passion. And the later stages when you are kicking back on a yacht because you made it, your company is ticking over brilliantly.
But that bit in the middle is where the magic happens. The growth period can be a challenge, even for people who have a few successful businesses. Most businesses do naturally come to the point that they need to think about growth and how best to manage it.
It goes without saying that you’ll need to be hands-on and focused when you want to cultivate growth and then facilitate it too. But how do you go about it?
As much as you probably want to make tea with you, cloning is not a thing for us yet. But being able to be everywhere at once, getting jobs done twice as fast, you know that you can only do so much of the time. The right virtual assistant, however, can start managing your Emails, social media, and do your research too. Not only that but they can book travel and meetings and make sure that your business is running smoothly as possible. This frees you up so that you can work in your business. I want your business, and attend every meeting that you’re supposed to be at.
While you are no doubt incredibly skilled, There are some skills that you don’t quite have. And if you know there is a scale deficit somewhere, it is your job to plug it. For many companies it is actually their IT, that is somewhat of an issue. Making sure that you have computer IT services all sorted is going to give you a huge advantage.
If you haven’t already set up a range of sales funnels now is the time. Many companies like yours are hooked up to great online software that will not only guide you through the process but will make it as fast as painless as possible. I sense, but it will help the business like yours to scale and grow quickly and easily.
It should be noted that it will take some time to get your finals in place, and you are lucky to have some hic-ups while they are tested. If implemented properly, they are priceless. You may need to sit down and look at your point A and B though. Building fully automated systems will speed up yourself significantly, and give you access to a whole range Of data.
Your email list is going to be your bread and butter. In the early days, most small companies were deeply relying on social media. Remind him for a second that all the social media websites stopped. That abruptly. All you will have left is your email list. This links and deeply to pronounce. Your email list will go hand-in-hand with your funnels. It would be best if you worked on both simultaneously.
There is software like ConvertKit, GetResponse, and MailChimp to help you set goals and increase your email list length.
There is a wide range of tools that you can use to help your automation outside of your emails and funnels too. Everything that you use should be able to increase your output, with minimal effort from you. Sure, they will take a little time to set up, but once they are done, it should be smooth sailing. Here are a few options that are highly recommended:
- Zapier – might be the most highly recommended tool for most businesses. There are thousands of automation options for Zapier, so it is worth looking into them all.
- Buffer, Hootsuite or MissingLettr – any of these are great options for creating and automating all of your social media campaigns. And give valuable insight too.
- Grammarly – for all of your copy needs, can give a range of suggestions and corrections.
- QuickBooks, Xero – having your expenses and your income automatically tracked and easily put into a report for tax and VAt reasons takes a huge issue out of your hands.
- Leadformly – unless you have a whole sales team at your disposal you might consider an automate sale process to enable you to handle a higher volume of sales, it is designed to increase your web form conversions.
Much of growth comes down to making sure you have tools in place that will be able to speed up all of your processes.
