It’s Wise Up Wednesday! 10 Ways To Make A Positive Impact On Your Specialist Contracting Business

Running any business is tough, but running a Specialist Contracting business is even tougher!

Here are 10 things you can do to make a real positive difference in your business;

  • Keep Score:It’s amazing how few Specialist Contractors have any idea of the daily, weekly, and monthly numbers. Make sure you know the financial trends in your business and keep that cash flow under control.
  • Set Goals: Like keeping score, setting goals and objectives is an essential part of business success.
  • Use High Impact Marketing: It’s easy to waste money on ineffective marketing. Learn how to use low cost marketing to improve your business.
  • Master Business Presentation Skills: Even talking one on one with a potential customer, good business presentation skills can help improve your Specialist Contracting business by leaps and bounds.
  • Monitor Trends: No business operates in a vacuum. The events and changes in the construction landscape have an effect on your business. Stay current by joining over 1,800 Specialist Contractors in this free group.
  • Sharpen Selling Skills: A high return area for business improvement is the sales function.
  • Find Best Practices: Every industry has its own best practices or ways of doing things that are tried and tested. Avoid wasting money and time reinventing the industry is generally a good approach!
  • Motivate Staff: Talented and motivated staff members can bring on big improvements in business.
  • Know Your Limits: Every successful business owner, even Bill Gates, has a clear idea of their limitations. Just accepting you can’t do it all , helps you to manage your resources andfind help when you need it.
  • Take a Break: Running a small business is hard work. Sometimes the best way to improve your business and re-ignite your passion is to take a holiday!
