All business tips are aimed at making your business bigger, better and more successful. Everyone speaks about business growth, about tips and methods that can make you stand out, attract more customers, earn more money. So many people are talking about growing, developing and getting bigger, yet no one talks about the consequences.
Is It Really Safe to Have A Drastic Business Growth?
No. We at Prestige Auditors think that a drastic business growth won’t positively affect your business and plans related to it. Even though we all start our business with the purpose of growing, we should make it our sole priority. We know that creating a business is exciting, but you have to understand that together with growth, responsibilities are getting bigger, the consequences are getting harsher, and the competition is getting tougher.
You’ll Get Lost In Accounting
Small businesses start with small finances. Even though accounting is not one of the easiest fields, small business owners can do everything by themselves, without any problems. It’s pretty easy to understand where your money goes to, why it goes there, and what you are going to get back.
However, everything may change when you experience a drastic growth in your business. Suddenly you’re not in control of your expenses and income: keeping pace with the never-ending flow is difficult, sometimes even impossible. What other companies do is hire accounting services who are constantly in charge of your company’s finances, consult you whenever you have a problem, and help you during the tax season. So, if you feel that your business is rapidly growing, apart from getting excited and happy, go and hire a consultant: everything may change in a moment!
You’ll Get Lost in Organizational Questions!
Small businesses either fail or succeed. Just like any other business. However, it’s not so simple! If you fail, you fail, but if you grow, you can fail too! This is a strange system which is however, real and practical. The worst thing about this, is that it can happen to anyone in this industry, it’s just the way it works! But wait, let’s not panic!
If you’re expanding, you will definitely need more people around. Remember those times when you were operating your business with 7-8 people? Well, now their number will also increase, and soon you’ll have an office full of employees and specialists. Now you have a team which should be properly managed and organized. But who is going to do that? You, of course. This is why together with growing, you should develop your organizational skills, otherwise, the managerial questions will strangle you to failure.
You’ll Get Lost in Customer Service Demands!
Growing means building: more precisely, it’s all about building a reputation. While you’re providing excellent customer service, and gaining a good reputation, business growth can ruin your plans… The thing is, customers always expect the best, because the client is always right, huh? They will never think of you as a business that is doing its best to grow, and become more famous. They think about you as an already formed, already established business that SHOULD provide the customer service they deserve.
Conclusion: getting bigger leads to stricter customer demands. If you don’t fulfill them, you’ll lose your reputation and you’ll have to start everything from square one!
