Ten Tips for Small Business Success in 2012

Ten Tips for Small Business Success in 2012 | Dumpster Diving | Scoop.it

Small business success is top of mind for business owners who are hoping that 2012 will be a sharp improvement over 2011. With that in mind, we recently asked our readers to share their top tips for small business success. Here’s what they had to say.


1. Business Plan Success. A well prepared business plan will keep your company focused and on track for growth and business success. Christine Krivicich Cesarino of Advantage Payroll Services recommends small business owner’s dust off their business plans to make sure they have the right strategy in place for 2012.

 

2. Business Strategy. A strong business strategy, combined with alignment and discipline, can yield impressive small business growth. Ann Latham, president of Uncommon Clarity advises her clients to begin with a clear and short list of top priorities.

 

“What are the few things you can do that would really make a difference?” This could range from launching a new product to managing your most profitable set of clients to make them more profitable still. “You then must align your people and resources behind the strategy in order to achieve high levels of success,” notes Latham...

Thanks for that - would you care to expand? Your input is appreciated..

Sure,

A Strategic plan was the best advice there. Their #1 of having a business plan was awful. Business plans do not keep one focused or on track. They are ficticious estimations. No company has ever stayed on it. Why? Because their business changes as it grows.

Also, investors don't look at them and if BPs were important, why did Apple, Microsoft, Google, Ford, etc. etc. not have them?

Customer Service is not what sets a company apart, it's a Brand Identity that does. CS can be fit into an identity, but not visa versa. Besides, CS is determined by the customer. A company may have good policies in place but the moment it upsets the customer(s) it goes haywire.... look at what happened with Sprint. Known for great customer Service but as soon as they mentioned a $2 fee - kaboom!

The bottom line is this: Look at the source of the article. It's from an employment site. They aren't going to know much about running a business.

There is a reason that http://www.GlobalCEOspace.com has had huge success for decades in pumping out member hits like Chicken Soup for the Soul, 911 Locator Services, #1 Pet Product, #1 Automotive, #1 Educational, Robert Kiyosaki's "Cash Flow", and the lead companies in just about every business category.

Thanks Dave - it's great to have such clarity on issues where there's tons of info but easy to be pulled in all directions.

Thanks too for taking the time to do that for us :)
