•The first step into not having a failing business is to know what causes businesses to fail. A successful business is one that avoids all possibilities of failure in order to stay appealing to the consumer and maintain profit. Once any signs of a failing business are being shown a business owner must be ready to change and find a different path for their venture.
Look at how business' fail.
Put customers first •Although a business owner may believe they have great ideas if the customers think otherwise the business will not last. A business owner must be constantly willing to put the customer before themselves and to listen to feedback and approve off of it
Constantly innovate and improve •A business owner should always be ready for change. In any market what is being produced and sold is constantly changing and it is up to a business owner to adapt and improvise in order to fit into these markets. Business owners should not resist change and should instead always be ready to move with it and fit in. Otherwise eventually they will become outdated and unapealling.
Come up with new ideas to attract new demographics •A business owner should be able to always come up with new creative ideas in order to lure in new customers from different demographics. For example a business owner of a restaurant has a menu that is mainly food for adults in adult portions however they notice a lot of families with children coming in and come up with a new kids menu to appeal. Another example would be a business owner of a clothing line only makes dresses however they decide to make suits as well to appeal to a new demographic being men.
Always advertise In order for consumers and people to find out about your business you must constantly advertise it to as many people as possible. Online or physical advertisements such as billboards can be very effective at catching the attention of new people. Using Instagram business accounts to advertise your product is extremely effective as well
Reinvest! •Startingout a business owner should never take the profits for themselves. A smart business owner will put every penny they earn back into the business until it starts to grow rapidly. Constantly expand your business and make it as big as it is needed to fit for the customer base that your business has.
Stay away from competition! •Although some people may love a good competition, a business owner should never jump into a market that already has big competitors. Make new ideas that no big companies have seen before or jump into markets with smaller competitors that will not blow you out. Do not try to compete with a monopoly unless you have lots and lots of capital.
