It’s officially 2019! While the years seem to be flying by, it’s important to take the time to stop and take stock of what’s important for your business in the coming year. Setting goals for yourself, your employees, and your company as a whole should be a priority this January; successfully sticking to these goals and redefining them as necessary should be a priority for the entire year.
One important task to complete for the new year is ensuring that your insurance policies are up to date. Contact your insurance company with any questions you may have, and consider adding additional coverages if you deem it necessary. If you don’t have or are unable to find a full copy of your insurance policy/policies, make sure you request one so that you know how much coverage you have in the upcoming year. In the case that you want to invest in an additional insurance policy, consider contacting an independent insurance agency so that you can be sure that your business is protected at the best possible price in 2019.
Another great way to start out the new year is to review your business’ website. If your website hasn’t been updated in years and you haven’t looked at it in as much time, take review each page of your website and make changes as necessary. Most importantly, be sure that your website is optimized for mobile use. More than half of all website traffic originates from a mobile phone. Due to this, if your website is not mobile-friendly, you could be losing some potential clients. Contact your website developer if you are unsure about how your page appears on mobile devices.
Set up a budget and stick to it. Meet with your staff as needed and fill them in on how much money can be spent within each department. Defining a clear monthly budget is an excellent way to both save and keep track of your business’ money. Keep in mind, however, that the budget may be subject to change depending on circumstances, so be prepared for some flexibility along the way.
Overall, it’s essential that you and your employees stay diligent throughout the new year and take some time to reflect on what worked in previous years as well as any areas that require improvement. Additionally, make a point to review each of these suggestions halfway through 2019 and check your progress.
Have a safe and Happy New Year!
