As we inch near the fourth quarter of the year, it’s time to think about planning for business growth in the new year. At Alliance Business Coaching, we offer business growth consulting to help you stay relevant and grow even during times of financial uncertainty.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses, especially small businesses, have faced unprecedented challenges. The idea of growth may feel like a distant dream as you fight to stay afloat. Yet, we believe it’s vital to create a strategic plan for the new year to get your business back on track and growing.

How to Grow a Business in the Face of Market Challenges

As the market continues to shift wildly and business feels uncertain, a growth mindset easily falls into the background. However, it is during these kinds of times where a growth strategy creates focus and a blueprint to weather the storm.

In fact, growth strategies work to reestablish your business from crisis mode to the new tactics needed to revive and survive in 2021.

  1. Consider the Current Business Condition
    We begin business growth consulting by taking an in-depth look at your current business standing. We consider all parts of your business, including financials, employees, business model, marketing, and more. Our goal is to understand who you are, what you do, and how you do it. In other words, we want as clear of a picture as possible of your business so that we can help you develop improved strategies to move forward.
  2. Identify Problem Areas
    While the pandemic has caused unexpected problems for businesses, it’s also exposed existing problems that made many businesses more vulnerable during the pandemic. For example, if your business didn’t have accurate budgeting before the pandemic, it’s likely exacerbated your financial management issues.
    Likewise, if you had poor employee communication or delegation before, now that more employees work from home, you likely have a communication and job responsibility crisis. By identifying the problems, you understand the areas that need improvement and creative solutions.
  3. Consider Possible Solutions
    To grow a business, you need to offer clients a new solution for their problems. Also, you need to run your business efficiently. Find workable solutions to your business problems that allow you to focus on meeting the needs of your customers or clients.
    When you waste energy dealing with the same business issues constantly, you cannot provide the best products or services. We help you determine the right solutions to better manage your budget, inventory, employees, and more. An outside view provides insight to discover creative problem-solving.
  4. Develop Strategy for Sustainable Growth
    Many businesses have found ways to adapt to new market conditions. If you want to keep your business alive, you must stop looking at COVID-19 as a short-term problem and consider how you can make strategic changes to operate if the current market conditions continue into 2021 and beyond.
    As we’ve learned from these last six months, it takes grit and flexibility to run a business. You must plan for the unexpected. We help you build a strategic plan despite market challenges. We walk you through the options for your business moving forward, including how to change your mindset and persevere in the face of uncertainty.
