Why Your Small Business Is Not Growing

You’ve followed all the rules. You’ve invested time and money. You believe in your product. So why isn’t your customer base growing. Sometimes, you have to scratch beneath the surface to find out what is holding your business back. Review the items below and find out what you are (or aren’t) doing that’s keeping you from the next level of success.

Over-Spending on Technology

A common mistake often made in the business world is overpaying for multiple services or tools when one resource can get the job done effectively. Don’t fall into the trap of investing in every flashy new technology you find – do your research to find the best tool to get the job done and drop unused services that you no longer need.

Resistance to Outsourcing

Sometimes, there’s just too much on your plate for you to handle. Rather than trying to tackle everything at once, let a professional third party take care of the areas in which you or your staff are less-than-skilled. Whether you need a team to take care of your packaging or someone to handle your janitorial services, outsourcing can help you save time and money. Contact Goodwill B2B at 513-771-4800 to find out about outsourcing services available in the greater Cincinnati area.

Selling At the Lowest Price

Rather than focusing on beating your competition to the lowest price, invest in the quality of your product. Whether it means hiring well and training your staff to go the extra mile or upgrading your services, a boost in quality can often justify a higher cost.
