The following are some of the most recognised ways to grow a business.
Increase the number of customers of the type you want to have.
All business people have limited time & resources and that is why it is important to target the type of customers you want attract to your business.
Increase the number of times customers come back.
The more you can get clients to return to your business for additional sales the better your bottom line will be. Look closely at what your sales/service offer is and think about what you can offer to get clients coming back more often.
Increase the average value of each sale made.
Business often makes the mistake of thinking that selling items at a low price will increase sales and it often will, but being locked into lower prices means that your margin (difference between cost of goods & sales price) is always low and this leads to low profitability even though you are very busy.
Look closely at your pricing and what the market will pay for your product.
