Yesterday, I signed up for a 30-day blog challenge through a Seth Godin initiative in honor of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s birthday.
My goal is to post a blog post each day for 30 days, meet new people, and gain new information that can help me move my business (and yours) forward.
To bolster our business bottom lines, we constantly need to be researching, adapting and tweaking our business models to stay ahead of our competition.
In the case of business, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” doesn’t apply. I’m not saying that every business needs a huge overhaul ever six months, but there are always updates and small changes that can add potential revenue or build relationships with current customers that will keep them loyal.
For many businesses, especially local, these changes mean taking your brand online. Do you have a website? A Twitter account? A Facebook fan page for your business? If you don’t, you are missing an opportunity to grow.
Maybe you have excess inventory you can sell on eBay for some extra cash (and space). Maybe you can reach a new demographic with a simple website and a Facebook page. If you don’t try these things, you’ll never know.
It can be scary to try new things. It can be scary to change what seems to be working. However, if we don’t attempt new things, how will we ever grow?
So I’ve joined a 30-day blog challenge to get myself in front of new potential clients, build my brand and grow my business. I have lots more in store for my business in the next 30 days as well.
So tell me, what will you do for your business today?
