Small Business 101: Episode 52 – Our Top Small Business Tips And Advice From 2018

Our Top Small Business Tips And Advice From 2018

2018 has been a great year of learning for us! In the spirit of new years, we’re sharing our top Small Business tips from 2018.

The Key Points

  • Prioritize organization. It may seem like a nuisance at first, but not having an organization process and procedure will hurt you when you scale up and hire more employees.
  • You have to know your audience and know what “language” they speak on each platform. People on LinkedIn will respond differently from people on Facebook.
  • For many positions, work-life balance isn’t realistic in 2018. People will still expect contact and calls after the 9-5 time. Aim for synergy instead.
  • Role-play in sales. It’s a great way for more senior salespeople to teach newer salespeople and learn common objections.
  • Use a 30-60-90 day plan or some way to measure employee success. This way you can set expectations so both you and the employee knows if they’re performing well.
  • You’re going to be told “No” many times as a small business owner but if you believe in your heart you can do it, you can do it. You just have to keep fighting through.
