Secrets to grow your company quickly in Malaysia
Always think ahead
While agility is an important quality for a startup, you can’t fly by the seat of your pants when you’re running a business. Planning your next step, even if that means anticipating all possible scenarios, is the best way to stay grounded and secure as your business evolves.
“Set the foundation in place, water it and watch it grow,” Davis said. “If you do the foundational work, when you experience growth, it won’t be that difficult to adjust, since the hard part is already done.”
Boost customer service
According to Small Business Trends, another great method of growing your business quickly is by focusing on providing superior customer service. When you exceed customers’ expectations, they are likely to tell their friends, family and followers about your business. Further, when you go out of your ways, such as offering discounts if a customer has a poor experience or following up to ensure a client was satisfied with your product or service, you establish a reputation for having great customer service.
Focus on social media
Another method to grow your business is to create profiles on all of the major social media platforms (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc.). Creating a profile allows you to better market your and interact with far more potential customers. Too, when your business has an account (and is updated regularly on each site) on the major platforms, consumers can find your business more easily, and they are likely to share your business with their friends.
Attend networking events
Attending networking events allows you to connect with like minds, many of which have unique perspectives and insights that you wouldn’t find elsewhere that can help you grow your business. The connections and relationships that come from attending networking events can be beneficial for years to come.
Work on corporate social responsibility
Consumers want to buy from businesses that are passionate about causes that help make the world a better place. Whether you choose to donate to cancer research or support nonprofit providing solutions to homelessness, look for ways to provide a meaningful contribution to the causes you support and share that with your customers.
Hire the right people
Before you can even think about your company’s growth trajectory, you need to ensure that you have a solid staff that can help you achieve it.
“With a small business looking to grow, it’s important to have the right players at the table,” said April Davis, founder of online dating service Cupid’s Cronies. “They need to be people who aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves. The words ‘That’s not my job,’ do not exist in their vocabulary. They need to have the dedication to the mission.”
“Hiring the absolute best people you can is a surefire way to ensure fast growth,” added Christian Lanng, CEO and chairman of business software provider Tradeshift. “It’s all about having the right team.”
Invest in yourself
In the early stages of your business, you’ll likely see a very lean profit margin (or no profit at all), so any money you do make should go directly toward helping you grow.
“A startup’s ability to invest in itself [helps] accelerate growth,” Lanng said. “In those early years, it’s critical to make sure that you’re redirecting any revenues back into the company. It’s vital to invest early and heavily in order to grow quickly.”
By following all of the tips above, it is very likely that your company will grow very quickly in a short period of time. These are very important factors that will definitely strengthen your company.
