Expand your market

A larger market brings more customers. There are several ways how you can increase your client base.
      Offer complimentary services – Offering free products will drastically increase your client base and make you current clients more loyal. Free products and services should be useful to your targeted audience. They need to be easy to deliver and they can also come in the form of extended warranties, consulting services or complementary products wrapped in a bundle with your main product line.
      Extend your geographic market area – You can do it by offering your products or services online or extending your advertising reach to other cities, counties, states or countries.
      Sign cooperative sales agreements – If you’re not able to deliver your products to faraway places or you have troubles with introducing new packages, you can sign a cooperation agreement with companies in other cities or states or with companies from other industries that will enrich your bundle offers with their products and services.

Outsource financial tasks

Many small business owners spend a lot of their time on accounting and bookkeeping. If they’d outsource these tasks to professionals, they’d have much more time to invest in their company’s development. Writing tax returns is another task DIY entrepreneurs like to do by themselves, although in this day and age, it’s easy to find an affordable tax accountant in Sydney and in other Australian cities.
Time and accounting agency’s availability are not the only factors in this mix. Small business entrepreneurs should look up to big companies. They often outsource their whole financial department, from basic transactional processes, to more complex tasks like budgeting, forecasting and internal auditing. By outsourcing financial tasks, entrepreneurs increase their transparency and develop better benchmarks that help them to satisfy difficult regulatory requirements and improve their business performance.

Raise your prices

Although this doesn’t sound too intuitive, it can be a very effective move for battling high production costs and slow sales. Price raise shouldn’t be taken lightly. Before you decide for this move, you should conduct an elaborate competitive research. Try to determine one or few things that make your products remarkable and use them in your advertising in order to retain your customers after the price jump.
Of course, you shouldn’t raise your prices quietly. Schedule your price jump and make a big announcement. Call all of your current and potential clients and give them the chance to renew their contracts or to purchase your products at a lower price.

Eliminate unnecessary costs

Routine is the worst enemy of progress. There are many expenditures we make just because we don’t have time to assess our company’s spending. In order to stay competitive, companies should conduct regular audits. All unnecessary costs should be written off as soon as possible.
When we start our business for the first time, we usually offer long list of complementary products and services in order to attract customers and position our brand on the market. Many of these incentives are overly expensive and sometimes even useless to the newly acquired clients. In order to cut company’s costs we can discontinue these services without affecting our customer satisfaction.

Boost your sales channels

Entrepreneurs who want to improve their sales, need to generate enthusiasm and give their customers more reasons to buy their products and services. You can upset your market dynamics in many different ways.
      Strengthen your sales collateral – Regularly update your website’s information and post articles, eBooks and infographics that navigate your leads through the sales funnel.
      Make sales partnerships – Offer your products to other companies and allow them to charge commission on each sale they made;
      Improve your customer’s loyalty – Remarket your products and offer discounts and other incentives to your old customers;
      Introduce different types of payments – Add PayPal and other online payment options to your check-out pages.

These tips will directly affect your business revenue and therefore they’re very useful for newly founded companies and for enterprises that are affected by low sales and other cashflow problems. Remember that your company’s finances are strongly connected to the sales of your products and services, and that every revenue boost starts from improving your overall marketing strategy.
