If you are looking for ways to grow your business in the new year, or in general, here are some goals to start the new year strong!

Look Back on Your Last Year – What Worked and What Didn’t

Being honest about the success or fail of your current methods will help you better understand what goals you should set for yourself and your business for the upcoming year.

Take moment to sit down and think about your last year as a business. Before thinking about your goals moving forward, it is important to realize what didn’t work and what waisted your time and money. Being honest about the success or fail of your current methods will help you better understand what goals you should set for yourself and your business for the upcoming year.

Gain Outside Perspective

Gaining outside perspective can give you a whole new outlook on what steps to taking moving forward.

Although you may think you know what is working for your business and business growth, gaining outside perspective can give you a whole new outlook on what steps to taking moving forward. Ways to gain outside perspective can mean working with a business coach to try new methods or talk with customers and gain feedback. A great way to understand how your current process is going is to talk with people who are highly active in your brand. This doesn’t mean taking every opinion to heart, but filtering out the good criticism can help you grow your business.

Branch Out and Try New Platforms

Trying new social platforms may also help you gain new audiences and possibly find a new platform that helps with overall business growth.

What other platforms can benefit you and your business? As we all know, Instagram can be difficult to grow on, so branch out and try creating brand recognition on new platforms such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Pinterest, and other social media platforms. This gives you the opportunity to grow and establish your brand in more than one area. Trying new social platforms may also help you gain new audiences and possibly find a new platform that helps with overall business growth.

Trademark Your Brand Through the State or Federally

When it comes to your businesses, it is smart to protect it in any way you possibly can.

If you have not legally established your brand on a state or federal level, this should be one of your main goals for the new year. Even if you are a small brand, going through the legal process of trademarking your name and logo can protect your brand and let you know if you are trademarking someone else’s. Even for new or existing businesses, it is important to check the database for any brand names or brand structures that may be similar to yours and cause confusion. When it comes to your businesses, it is smart to protect it in any way you possibly can.

Work Towards Obtaining Copyright Materials

It is extremely important to know how to protect your business legally so you don’t have to experience hard legal situations in the future.

If you have a website or you provide certain services to your customer, it is important to obtain copyright and legal materials that can protect you against certain situations. This includes copyright policies, terms of use, privacy policy, contracts, and other documents or legal protection that can positively impact the future of your business on a legal level. Even for small businesses, it is extremely important to know how to protect your business legally so you don’t have to experience hard legal situations in the future.

Try new Business Methods

Trying new things could potentially grow and make a positive impact for your business.

Trying new methods can grow your business in ways you may have never expected. This can include advertising in new ways, networking with other businesses, getting involved in events, and thinking outside of the box when it comes to trying new things that could potentially grow and make a positive impact for your business. If you have realized that current methods are showing no results, its time to attempt new means of growing and establishing your business.

Motivate and Show Appreciation to Employees and Workers

Although showing appreciation may take time and maybe money, many businesses rely on employees to keep their businesses running successfully.

Showing appreciation to your current, employees, workers, or contractors can help them regain motivation and overall keep pushing your business in the direction you want it to go. This can also include showing appreciation to freelancers or remote workers that may be working on projects or tasks for your business. Although showing appreciation may take time and maybe money, many businesses rely on employees to keep their businesses running successfully. Showing gratitude to your workers can also create a better and longer lasting relationships between you, your workers, and your business.

Take a Risk

Sometimes to experience exponential growth you have to take risks.

It is easy to get stuck in the same routine and stick to what is comfortable, but sometimes to experience exponential growth you have to take risks. Taking risks gives you the opportunity to experiment with new means of growing your business and establishing your brand. Although taking risks can seem like an intimidated thing, your business could benefit for your willingness to step out of your comfort zone. Make it a goal to take one new risk in the new year, or one a month if you are motivated for big change!
