The turn of the year is usually a moment for businesses and industries to do various things, such as evaluating company activities in the past year and preparing strategies for the following year.
Growing a business requires time, cost, dedication, and hard work. Therefore, this article will discuss five things business people can do to continue growing and developing their businesses in 2023.
Review of All Business Results and Activities for 2022
The first thing business people can do at the end of the year is to review the business performance that occurred during 2022.
Here, businesses can identify all aspects of the company, for example, calculating profits, debt, closing ratio, and other vital indicators.
This information will help businesses create and design new business strategies and become more realistic about what is happening and what needs to be eliminated, and what needs to be improved.
Creating a Business Strategy for 2023
The analysis of business performance over the past year will reveal the issues they faced, why they are occurring, and the causes.
Furthermore, business people can find the right solution and create a strategy to overcome these problems.
This strategy can cover various divisions, such as finance, sales, business development, marketing, and technology.
Accelerating Digital Transformation
Due to technological advances, business processes that used to take hours can now be completed in minutes.
So, it is like an obligation for any industry to carry out digital transformation immediately. Technologies such as machine learning, artificial intelligence, and the internet of things have opened up many opportunities for businesses to improve and enhance business operations.
Some of the advantages of digital transformation include the following;
- Business processes are becoming much more cost-effective.
- Less intuitive decisions but more data-driven.
- Businesses can experience massive growth in a short period.
- Access to many products can help manage consumers more efficiently and generate more profit.
Revise and Reset Strategy for Sales
A business cannot achieve high profits or sales if it continues and still uses the same method or strategy. Therefore, conducting a business review is an excellent first step.
To be able to create a new sales strategy, business people can answer the following questions;
- How will the company generate leads?
- How do you qualify these leads?
- How do you upsell existing clients?
- Do you need to recruit more sales staff or not?
In addition, business people need to know trends or things currently preferred by consumers. This research can help businesses to meet the primary needs of consumers better.
Set a Budget and Communicate Effectively
The last step is to determine the estimated costs needed to carry out the strategy that was previously made.
Before that, businesses also need to see the total costs spent in the previous year and where these costs were spent. This information at least helps businesses to create a basic budget for 2023.
For example, how much does it cost to buy software A, how much does the company need to incur if hiring new people, what cash flow in the company, how much revenue you want to achieve in 2023, and so on.
After doing all the above, strategy makers must communicate the design or budget effectively to their team.
Because they need to stay motivated and follow the plans that have been made, communicate all of these strategies, and ask for feedback from them. This feedback can later improve the plan to change for the better.
Creating an Effective Business Strategy with LOKASI Intelligence
As mentioned above, technology is helping business people run companies more efficiently. Making a business strategy cannot only use intuition but requires in-depth analysis.
LOKASI is a spatial analytic platform for location intelligence that can help businesses create appropriate and effective strategies.
For example, a business plans to open tens to hundreds of branches in 2023. If a company manually searches for strategic locations for openings by sending surveyors, it will take a long time to find at least one good location.
However, with LOKASI, business people can find these strategic locations in just seconds. In addition, LOCATION also has data such as demographics, income, religion, socio-economic status, points of interest, land sale value, and the number of people active in one location, which decision-makers can use to make business strategies.
