If you have your own business, it can feel daunting to consider making changes, but doing so can actually really boost your sales, so it may be a worthwhile move. My brother and sister in law run their own home-based Soy Wax Candle business and, although it is doing well, I have discussed with them the importance of building on their success. These are some of the ways you can think about taking your business to the next level in 2020.
Renting Office Space
If you are currently running your business from home, it might be beneficial to look into renting office space, to give yourself somewhere to work from more effectively, and to act as a base for business meetings. Click Offices London help to find the right serviced office in the capital, based on your personal requirements. A serviced office is brilliant as a no-fuss option for renting as they come furnished, with electricity, internet and phone lines already ready.
Selling on a Third Party Site
When my brother and his wife started selling their candles on Etsy, they saw their sales increase massively. They still sell direct from their website as well, but having this third party selling their products has really helped, and in the New Year they are looking at other websites as well. Generally speaking you would pay a commission to the website, but when you look at the potential increase in sales, it might make financial sense for your business to take this step.
Hiring a Marketing Company
Although it may be tempting to work on social media marketing and other promotions yourself, this can be hugely time-consuming and outsourcing this side of things can free you up for creating instead whether you are selling a tangible product or providing a service. Marketing and PR companies can offer affordable options, based on personal requirements, and may actually be less expensive than you think.
