How to manage a successful business

In such a saturated and competitive market, nowadays it can be extremely difficult to run a successful business. There are so many different factors that contribute to your business’ success- which can vary from business to business. We at M.A.S Partners, a small business accounting firm based in Sydney Zetland, have created a list of key factors on growing a successful business. With such a vast number of factors that determine your growth, it is absolutely pinnacle that your small business utilises these factors towards your advantage.

Differentiate yourself
Differentiation is the key driver in growing your business. Why would anyone invest in your business if it is the same as every other business? Find the differentiator in your business and expand on that. Whether it is customer service, the product, the price, or the marketing- be sure to be creative with it. Offering “good customer service” is not enough to stand out- ensure that your customer service is unique and is a reason for consumers to return to your business. Every business supposedly offers “high quality products”, however, it is important that your customers are able to notice the difference. This can be done through marketing the product as “premium” which is a common tool to differentiate a business. In addition, a product can differentiate itself in the benefits it offers. When creating your business, make sure you decide on the key differentiators that will drive the growth of your business.

Maximise loyalty
You not only want new customers buying from your business, but you also want returning consumers. Not only, are you getting more revenue this way, but you are also getting more customer awareness through word of mouth. To achieve customer loyalty, the consumer must have had a positive experience dealing with your business. This ties back to the importance of differentiation. If your business is differentiated enough, customer loyalty should come with the business. However, to maximise loyalty, you should use techniques such as loyalty programs that provide an incentive for your customers to return. In addition, you should attempt to have your consumers share your business through incentives. This will help market your small business and achieve growth.
