Failing to plan is planning to fail

Numbers always dictate business plans but not necessarily the numbers you think.

According to the Federation of Small Businesses Small Business Index, over 60% of SMEs expect to expand in terms of recruitment and overseas trade starting early next year.

Irrespective of your business size or industry sector, when evaluating your growth forecast for 2015 and beyond, it’s essential to plan appropriately and that ALL of your numbers really do ‘€˜add up’€™.

Saying ‘€˜how do you do?’€™

The mainstay of growing any business involves getting in touch. Making that all-important first and lasting contact forms the foundation for building commercial deals and longstanding relationships.

For example, if the focus of your business development hinges on publicising your contact details be it through investing in a whizzy website coupled with pricey advertising you could be missing a fundamental trick.

Do-do-do-do: a ‘€˜to-do-list’€™ for sustainable growth:

• Do you use a great phone number that potential and current customers remember with ease?

• Do you encourage callers by being either free or cheap to call?

• Do you cover the geographic area targeted for expansion?

• Do call-handling features enhance your caller experience, primed for an influx of extra calls, or a Disaster Recovery Plan if your landline goes down?

If you answered ‘€˜no’€™ to any of these, then DO contact Windsor Telecom.
