3 Tips for Small Businesses to Consider in 2016


The new year is well under way, and we’re deep in our daily business routines. But, did you know routines or familiarity can be dangerous? Well, 2016 is a fresh start to embrace new things to help your small business stay agile and viable. A recent article Three Things Small Businesses Need To Do In The New Year by Nicole Leinbach‐Reyhle says that learning new things and approaching business from a different perspective can be beneficial to start 2016 successfully.

To reassess where you’re heading in 2016, consider these three tips.

Consider areas you can improve in your business.

  • Do you need to reinforce your marketing efforts?
  • Are you left behind when it comes to social media?

Whatever it is, make it a point to join in various learning opportunities in 2016 that can help your business reach new heights.

Aim to be visible in places you haven’t in the past to connect with clients and potential clients that are ideal for your business. For instance, if you’re already thriving in your social media efforts, consider how you can augment your efforts and take it to new levels. For example, provide Wi‐Fi for your customers
to use such as Cloud4Wi that allows local businesses to personalize their free Wi‐Fi offering businesses the opportunity to get to know their customers better by capturing consumer behaviors while also collecting data never available before to small businesses.

Challenge yourself to view your business from various perspectives.

  • Consider how your employees see your business. Are they satisfied working in a team office space or flexible office space?
  • Consider how your clients, your business competitors, and even local non‐competitive businesses perceive your business. Are you fully satisfied with what you think they see?

Strengthen the areas in which your business may be perceived poorly.


Embracing these ideas can keep your small business competing in the business world.
