grow-revenueWe tend to treat ourselves in business as we do in life. If we lack the RESOURCES to grow in our businesses, chances are we lack the RESOURCES to grow in life.  As a small business owner, you will find yourself asking, how can I increase my sales?

Maybe you don’t have a succinct brand or the capacity to build one. It is essential to know where your company’s profits stand today relative to previous years. In life, you may evaluate where you stand as a role in your family. Like in business, life evaluations help you reach your personal goals. We should be treating our business lives in the same manner. One of the ways to analyze solutions to our business lives is to increase sales is to set a goal.

  Examine your current situation.

  • What are you focused on?
  • What is important to you in your company?
  • What or who are you currently spending the most of your time on?
  • How much time do you have per week? A few days or a few hours?
  • Who else is helping you?
  • What is the role of your colleagues and how do they align within your company?
  • What are the implicit and explicit goals of your company?

Like we do in our lives, understanding your past and present objectives will help you envision the future. At Synergy Marketing Strategy and Research, Inc., we keep these goals reasonable and attainable to help you flourish in both business and life. One of the ways to measure your performance before taking the necessary steps to improve profitability is implementing a SMART goal. The people who have the most success in achieving their intentions tend to identify their goals using the SMART framework.

A SMART goal stands for an objective that is:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Attainable
  • Relevant
  • Timely

Setting your goals based on your performance, the performance of your team, and data from your competitors will ensure that your goals are relative to your business. Having your performance measurable in past, present, and future, will increase the profitability of your business and the success in your sales goal. The information you have acquired is going to be the scaffolding that will help you build a strategy, and ultimately, execute the goal into success.

The same information is going to sync with your personal life objectives. Understanding your issues as to why you are not increasing your sales is the first step to identifying your problem with increasing your revenue. Create your SMART goals, and you will have a road map to flourish. Increasing sales in your business will ease the disconnect between your professional contacts, as well as the personal ones.
