We’re not quite there yet, but there is no harm in thinking about some New Year’s resolutions to start fresh and plan the year ahead for 2020, beginning with investing in new talent. Leading companies put talent at the top of their list and invest time and money into scouting and attracting expertise.
Everyone wants to be part of a winning formula, and most businesses will confirm that exceptional talent can exponentially enhance a company and attract new clientele. Similarly, the most successful companies look outside for ideas – turning to customers, data, industry and experts. You should also consider investment into analysis and research to continually adjust, adapt and reshape your business, and if you don’t yet have data, start collecting – targeting social media campaigns, competitions and newsletters are places you can start.
All successful business people admit to taking calculated risks at some stage in their business journey, and research suggests that many companies are following the lead of start-ups and venture capitalists – encouraging risk-taking in their businesses. through rapid prototyping and implementation of lead start-up methodologies. It’s a catalyst to encourage creativity, freethinking and innovation, develop talent and enhance employee engagement.
You should also automate as many tasks as you can so you don’t have to do them manually, opening up time and space to focus on taking your business to new levels. Marketing is at the core of every successful business and the marketing automation space is full of tools.
