As 2019 nears its end, Corpkart has got all the tools you need to prepare for the change ahead. Our team wishes you a happy new year for 2020! Read on to learn how you can plan to boost revenue, productivity, and more!
Strategizing for the new year is probably the last thing on your mind right now. Most businesses seem to follow the tired old mantra of ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’ But the truth is, 2020 is bringing with itself a new swathe of technological changes that will replace the old with the new. To stay ahead of the curve, or at least catching up to competitors in terms of productivity, you have to gear up.
2020 has got great potential for businesses that are willing to don a new suit. Don’t procrastinate planning, schedule the task on your calendar, and get to it. Here’s our guide on how you can strategize for 2020 and beyond.
1. Reflect the Past Year
This involves reviewing all the goals that you managed to strike off your to-do list, and the goals you couldn’t take time out for. Speaking of goals, 2020 presents the perfect opportunity to reshuffle and reprioritize your goals. All you need to do is review your calendar and get your team involved in discussions.
When crafting new goals, you have to pay attention to one crucial detail: can it be realistically done? For instance, if your goal is to get 250 new customers by March 2020, is it doable? If not, change it back to something more attainable, such as 150, or even 100. Be realistic about what you can achieve next year; don’t be afraid of pushing some projects further up your schedule if need be.
2. Use Live Chat Software
This is extremely important if you’re an online business and have a website. Your customers have fleeting attention spans of less than 8 seconds, leaving your marketing team with a short window to work with. This is where live chat software proves to be so useful. It lets you instantly connect with prospects as soon as they visit your landing page.
Live chat proves particularly useful when you’ve set up ad campaigns via Google, Facebook, and Bing. With live chat, you can maximize your ROI and productivity in 2020.
3. You Need a Website
Speaking of websites, does your business have one? The new decade is upon us and technology has pervaded all aspects of our personal and professional lives. Whether you’ve got a brick-and-mortar business or an e-commerce store, you need a website and a fast one at that. Remember the 8-second rule? Your website must load in as little as 2 to 3 seconds; otherwise, they will move on.
4. Using New and Improved Workstations
When it comes to workstations, your goal should be simple: out with the old, in with the new. Many enterprises have slow computers that don’t respond to demanding applications, with some failing to load up basic apps like Excel, PowerPoint or Google Chrome. Now that’s embarrassing. 2020 won’t wait for businesses that are still stuck booting up Windows 7!
Our team at Corpkart can evaluate if your old workstations are still up to the task or if they need to be replaced. Get in touch with us now to learn more.
The end of the year is close, and our team wanted to wish you all a great holiday season and a New Year filled with growth and success. We wanted to thank you for visiting our blogs and being a great all-round customer.
