5 Ways You Should be Growing Your Business this Summer

The majority of any businesses’ planning takes place at the beginning of the year. After all, that is when the budget is set, the numbers are finalized, and new goals are established. But what about the middle of the year? Are there opportunities we as businesses’ are foregoing by focusing so much energy outside of summer?

In our opinion, yes – and we’re here to put a stop to it. Here are our top 5 middle-of-the-year checkpoints for your business this summer:

1. Promote teambuilding. Study after study illustrates that those who work well together, play well together. In other words, it’s not enough to have your office set up in to teams. Your staff has to feel like a team. Summer is the perfect time to organize company activities to build a little more office gusto and even show a little employee appreciation.

2. Do a little summer cleaning. It isn’t always the first thing you think about, but sometimes cleaning up an office and doing a little organizing is a great way to motivate your staff. Make some time to do it together, hold an office lunch and you’ll find your office may seem a little more cheery – and a lot more efficient.

3. Review your goals and check in with staff. If you haven’t had time take a good look at your company since January, now is a great time to do it. Check in with your staff and see if they are happy. Ask if they have any issues. Review your end of the year goals and see if you are still on track to accomplish them. By checking in now, you can avoid big issues later.

4. Set new goals and resolutions. Yes, you already did this in January, but that doesn’t mean you can’t establish new goals now. A lot has probably changed since January – both with the economy and with your business. Now is a great time to create new goals and find new ways to strengthen your business for the future.

5. Check your marketing success. Are your emails, postcards and posters working for you? Now is a great time to take a keen eye to the hard data, review it, and see if your current marketing plan is working for you.
