4 Small Business Goals for 2013, by Rocklin, Roseville, and Sacramento Area Attorney Terry L. Gilbeau

roseville attorney Terry L. GilbeauWith each New Year that passes people make resolutions for themselves. They do this in hopes of bringing a better year. But at the same time, businesses should also be making some resolutions, or goals, for the new calendar. Doing so can help to keep the business going, growing, and making sure that all bases are being covered.

Whether your business is located in the Rocklin, Roseville, or Sacramento area or elsewhere, it is important to set yearly goals to meet. Here are four small business goals to set for 2013 and why they should top your list:

  • Better customer service. Every business’s success depends upon good customer service. Take a look at what you can do to make your customer service experience even better. Get some feedback from your customers to help point you in the direction of what they would like to see in terms of changes.
  • Getting help when needed. All good managers must learn to delegate and let others help when there is a need. It may be difficult to do, but not doing it can bury you in more than you can handle. In 2013, learn to delegate more so that you can focus on what you do best, rather than the smaller tasks that can be handled by others.
  • Promoting in new ways. This year look for a couple of new ways to try and promote your business. Try something new. If you haven’t tried online routes, such as using social media, then give that a shot before trying others. See what works and what doesn’t.
  • Evaluating what isn’t working. Take a look at your business to see what isn’t working. If it is something that you can let go of, drop it from your business. Focus your efforts on what is working, rather than putting all that energy into something that isn’t giving you a good return on investment.

Whether you choose to make these the four goals for your company in the New Year, or you choose others, be sure to choose something. In order to get the results you want and the growth you need, you will want to set some type of yearly goals and work to achieve them. Businesses in both Rocklin and Sacramento have flipped the calendar to a new year . Now set the wheels in motion to help take their businesses to a whole new level.
