New Year’s Resolutions For Your Business

It’s a new year and officially 2023! A new year means it is New Year’s Resolutions Season. With everything wrapped up from last year, it is the perfect time to reassess your business. If you are not sure what new year resolutions to set for your business here is a list of some examples you can get inspired from. 

Update Your Business Plan 

Since you started your business when was the last time you updated your plan? If it has been a while, the time is now. Make updating your business plan one of your new year’s resolutions this year. Your business plan should serve as a roadmap and guide you to success. A good business plan is a great asset to keeping you organized and showing to potential investors so you want to ensure that it stays up to date.  

Expand Your Network Business meeting

Having a good network is a great resource for your business. Having connections are important, especially for local businesses. Make it a goal in 2023 to expand your network. Figure out what fits your schedule the best and find a networking event once a week or at least monthly. Networking can result in business leads, learning valuable information, or creating a strong professional relationship. Make you keep up with it and schedule it on your calendar to keep it a priority.  

Update Your Marketing Plan 

Now that we are in a new year you should audit your marketing plan and strategies from last year. Make updating your marketing plan one of your new year’s resolutions for your business. Figure out what worked and what didn’t. As well as, what platforms are working more than others. Take a look at what paid advertising did better and what platform it did better on. For example, if you ran the same ad on Facebook and Instagram, which one did a better job? Once you identify what marketing efforts helped you last year, update your marketing plan to reflect these efforts. Cut out anything on the plan that didn’t work so you can prioritize your time, money, and efforts into what did work. 

Prioritize Your Employees 

Your employees are crucial to your business and the success of your business. First, start with evaluating the workplace culture. Ensuring your employees are feeling valued and motivated. When employees feel inspired and engaged they are much more likely to be more productive. Be mindful that you foster a positive work environment for yourself and your employees. Be open and encouraging of frequent feedback. Listen and respond to their feedback and needs. Prioritize work-life balance. Post-pandemic has shifted the way employees look at their work-life vs their personal lives.
