- Expand your garden’s produce - Think of all the vegetables you plant in a garden: potatoes, tomatoes, pickles, corn, etc. Think of your business as your garden and your customers as the produce. Instead of just focusing on one vegetable (or customer), expand your garden. Think about new customers that would benefit from the services your business provides. You may be missing an important market.
- Plant a new flower - Look to add products or services that compliment your existing selections. Work with your creative team to come up with a valuable product or service that would support your customer’s needs.
- Improve your gardening tools - One of the most affordable ways to grow your business is to make sure you and your employees are as sharp as can be. Set customer services goals each month and see how happy customers can be.
- Get your garden online - Does your company have a website? Are you on social media? If not, it is time to get your business online! Already online? Review your website and social media. See if your contact and business information is all up to date. Don’t forget to review your social media strategy, make sure it is up to par with your company’s vision and mission statement.
- Invest in your garden - If you want your garden to flourish you are going to have to invest in tools, seeds, hard work and labor. It is important to remember that very often substantial growth requires resources that are not free. Equipment financing can be an essential part of early and healthy business growth. Sometimes there may be options available that you never thought possible. Did you know that company’s like Tiger Leasing can give you the most innovative technology and equipment at an affordable price through leasing instead of buying?
