It would be nice if business growth happened organically, but in most cases, any organic growth business experience happens slowly, which is why business owners like yourself should consider the different ways the can stimulate business growth in 2019.

Don't Have a Value Proposition? It's Time to do it!

Your business's value proposition is a written statement that outlines what sets your business apart from your direct competitors and why customers should purchase from you. Even though the value proposition is a key component in a business's brand image and marketing strategy, a surprising number of businesses never create a value proposition. The failure to have one can make it difficult for the business to experience future growth.


What to Include in the Value Proposition?

The information you to include in your value proposition is:

  • The quantified value of the benefits consumers receives from your business
  • The relevancy of your product/service to consumers
  • An explanation of the unique ways your business differs from the competition

Keep redrafting your value proposition until it is a fluid read at which point, post it on your website's homepage as well as the landing pages for all your sale funnels.


Take Advantage of Your Talented Employees

Your employees are more than just people who complete the business-related tasks you assign them. They're the face of your company and just as important as your brand image. If utilized properly, they can also be the key to your 2019 business growth. 

Take a long look at your employees. Read through their resumes. Ask them what aspects of the business interest them. You may find that a large portion of your team has skills and talents you can utilize to make your business run more smoothly than ever before. 

Use what you've learned and apply it when you're hiring. You want to invest in talent. Don't just look for somebody who meets your current needs, but someone who has the skills you'll need once your business grows.


Have you Been Considering Developing Products? Now's a Great Time to Start!

Has your business experienced steady product growth over the past few years or has your business hit a plateau? If you've plateaued one launching a new product is something you can do to trigger a new surge of business growth. While there is some risk connected to developing and launching a new product, there are also some great rewards, which include:

  • Increased revenue
  • New marketing options
  • Opportunities to establish yourself as an industry leader
  • Network building
  • Increased market share

When it comes to taking your business and shifting it to a more product-based development, you'll want to memorize the seven-stages of product development.

  1. Idea generation 
  2. Developing an idea into a solid product concept
  3. Developing the product
  4. Market testing
  5. Commercialization
  6. Launching the product
  7. Post-launch analysis and marketing

 You can choose to handle every single aspect of new product development in-house, or you can decide to outsource some parts.

If you feel that developing a completely new product is too risky, you may want to opt for redesigning and branding one of your current products that haven't been garnering many sales. A good product redesign can trigger as much business growth as developing a new product.
