If organizations commit to doing one or two of these each week, they should see a good return on their investment of time and effort throughout the year
Winnipeg, MB (PRWEB) January 1, 2008
Every business has a mandate to grow, which usually means driving profitability, increasing marketshare, and building stakeholder confidence. But the challenge businesses face is in knowing what activities to do and then finding the time to do them. This is particularly true of small and medium-sized businesses that do not have an entire department devoted to acting on these strategies. "I see it so often," says Aaron Hoos, "the new year starts out with great promise, but by the second or third quarter of the year, businesses wonder what they need to do next in order to grow."
The solution to this challenge can be found first by developing a list of proven strategies to help a business grow, and second, by scheduling those strategies as a priority at the beginning of the year and acting on them throughout the year. So, to help businesses with their 2008 action plan, Aaron Hoos has developed a list of 88 business-growing strategies for 2008 and is offering the list for free on his website. "Think of them as business-related New Year resolutions," says Aaron Hoos.
Each strategy, he points out, is fairly easy to accomplish and does not require large commitments of time or resources to complete. Strategies include well-known tasks like creating press releases and writing articles, but also other tactics like webinars and developing contingency plans.
And the timing couldn't be better: rumors abound regarding the state of the economy this year as recent news reports raise the possibility of a recession in 2008. Aaron Hoos points out, "if the economy does falter, a strong business has the greatest chance of survival and the best way to ensure a strong business is to start acting now to grow that business… But if the business grows and the economy remains strong, that's still a winning situation."
The entire list of 88 business-growing strategies for 2008 is available at http://aaronhoos.com/88strategiesfor2008. There is no catch, no cost for the information, no obligation to buy anything, and readers are free to use any of the information they find helpful.
"If organizations commit to doing one or two of these each week, they should see a good return on their investment of time and effort throughout the year," says Aaron Hoos. He adds, "of course, success is never guaranteed but organizations that proactively work on these types of tasks will likely see more success."
