4 Ways You Can Take Your Business To The Next Level in 2017

It’s a new year and if you are anything like thousands of business owners across the globe you probably aspire to take your business to the next level in 2017.  Throughout the year there will be thousands of webinars and professional development courses that will promise to take your business to the next level. While these courses are beneficial there are 5 things you can do right now in order to take your business to the next level in 2017.

Social Media Marketing

We live in a social media world and if your business is not present on any social media platform you cannot expect your business to go to the next level. Keep in mind most social media experts suggest that you should only be present on social media networks that make sense for your audience to get the best usage of your time. For example if you own a senior citizen home it may not be a good idea to be on Instagram or Snapchat. Not sure which social media channels work best for you and your brand? There are lots of resources available to send you in the right social direction.

Sales Enablement

Although still a very new concept, sales enablement plays a huge role in growing your business to the next level. If you’re not familiar with sales enablement it is defined as practices, tools, technologies, and processes that improve the productivity and performance of the sales organization. Sales enablement as an entire entity encompasses several takes such as sales coaching, on boarding, performance analysis and also content generation. If executed properly this one step could take your inbound marketing to the next level.

Just because you are a business owner doesn’t mean you’re good at everything. Take a moment to sit down and focus on what things you are good at and what things you are not. Once you recognize what areas you’re weak in, find someone you can outsource the work out to and delegate. Delegating not only takes the pressure off of you but it allows you to focus on the areas that you are strongest in.

Digital Products

This new and evolving business model works not only with books or training courses you have created, but it also works with tools and or templates you’ve created that may have helped your own business grow significantly—books and training, but with tools, themes, plugins, software and so much more! Plenty of creators sell everything from Photoshop brushes to templates and plugins. Income can be unlimited when working with digital products.

Believe in Yourself

The last way you can take your business to the next level in 2017 is less about marketing and sales and more about your mindset. If you really want to see your business go to the next level you have to believe in yourself. Over the last few years a negative connotation has been placed around the concept of self-promotion and simply believing in yourself. Many outsiders often view self-promotion as a sign of cockiness but there’s a fine line between being cocky and genuinely admitting you are great at something. Before anyone can believe in your business you must first believe in yourself. If you don’t, your business will fail just as quickly as it started.
