Nicholas Beugg and his team of experienced growth marketers recently shared some important information for business owners looking to grow. The firsthand knowledge possessed by the team includes learning a lot of important information that they can now pass along. These are three of their top tips for business owners that are looking to grow their organization successfully.
E-Commerce Continues to Holds Its Position as a Top Vehicle for Success and Growth
The world of e-commerce continues to be among the most lucrative ways to do business. There are many reasons for this fact. The e-commerce business model has some significant advantages over more traditional ways of doing business. These advantages include the absence of a need to pay rent for a retail space, retail sales associates, and the types of utility expenses that traditional business models must deal with. The factors benefit the e-commerce retailer but they also benefit today’s consumers as many of these cost savings can be passed onto them. In turn, even small e-commerce companies are often able to offer highly competitive prices for high-quality goods. The simple fact that e-commerce allows for a far greater reach than operating from a retail location is another clear advantage that the model has. It makes it possible for e-commerce retailers to appeal to customers on a global basis rather than a local one even if they are a relatively small company. The e-commerce model is also perfect for today’s digital advertising/online marketing campaigns that can help a company to grow. It is far less costly to place ad spots on social media platforms than it is to try and advertise on the television. It is also easier to zero in on a specific target audience/ideal customer by advertising on social media. Digital advertising seems to be the future of marketing in general. It is certainly a field that can help today’s businesses to grow their e-commerce operations.
It Is More Important Than Ever to Provide Employee Education
Another thing that business owners need to look at as they work on growing their operations is employee education. One of the most effective ways to keep good employees around is to train them correctly and offer them educational opportunities. It can become costly having to always replace employees who left due to a lack of education. Today’s technology continues to drive virtually every industry. This fact adds to the importance of employee education. Providing them with learning opportunities is a great way to help employees from becoming obsolete in their current roles.
Vertical Integration Is a Sound Strategy for Reducing Operating Costs
Vertical integration refers to a business taking control of as much of its supply chain as it can. Doing this is a great way to cut operating costs and save a lot of money that can be put toward growth initiatives. The more that a business can do under its own umbrella, the more money that the business can usually save. Nicholas Beugg has pointed out an example of a company allowing one of its e-commerce ventures to directly supervise areas such as manufacturing, shipping, and delivering customer service. Cutting out the middleman is a way to save money that can be passed onto the customer and can aid in growth.
