The New Year’s resolutions every business should make for 2021

The New Year is a time for fresh starts and of course dreaded and often difficult to stick to resolutions. Whilst you’ll no doubt be busily making pledges in your personal life, doing the same professionally could be just what you need to take your business to the very next level.

Like many of us, you’ll probably be glad to see the back of 2020, so why not start 2021 as you mean to go on and make it a great year for business with the following New Year’s resolutions…

Get to know your audience

You may think you know your target audience inside out but with a whole year of upheaval behind us and 2021 also set to get off to a shaky start for most, reviewing your business landscape should be a priority.

Businesses and individuals alike have had to adapt in the face of Covid-19, which means your audience’s wants and needs may have evolved. Get to know your audience once more with a new round of market research so you can address their current requirements and even attract a few new customers in the process.

Reconnect with your customers

With a renewed enthusiasm and the extra information gleaned from your market research, you can get to work reconnecting with your customers.

The customer experience remains a vital part of thriving online so make sure you’re doing all you can to give new and existing consumers a great service. Obtain customer feedback through short surveys, focus on returning customers, collect reviews to entice new ones, and up your communications across all channels to feel more connected than ever to your audience.

Give your brand a makeover

It’s never been more important to stay true to and communicate your company’s mission. But if this has moved with the times, it’s vital your new ethos is reflected in your branding.

A disjointed brand will not achieve the same success as a cohesive one. Refine and share your brand values, keep your tone of voice consistent, see how your competitors are faring, and make sure your website and branding is up to scratch to ensure you’re recognisable for all the right reasons.

Invest in your team

It’s said that a company is only ever as good as its worst employee so make sure you nurture your talent just as much as your target audience. Whether your employees are based alongside you in-house or are still working from home, keeping your team positive and productive will have a great impact on your business.
