Is Your Business Ready For 2023?
Doesn’t time fly. I do not know about you but for me time seems to be going faster in fact, just last week I had a car problem and being a bit of a hoarder as I am. I had three cars 2 in the garage so I decided to take one out the crazy thing was I realised I hadn’t driven the car for about 7 or 8 years..
When I got the car I spent about £1200 pounds on an anti hijacking car alarm system with a lot of bells and whistles. Including Autostart and lots of other features that 8 years ago seemed quite modern. 🙂 I had a friend who fitted it and went round to their house to see if they would remove it from the car, but when I got there the house was empty. I popped a card through his door and as I went to drive away a car pulled up in the driveway and a man got out. I asked the man does my friend Gary ______ live here. He replied I have been living here about 7 years I think he used to live here.
Hmm, well have you ever watched one of those movies where you see some time traveller arrive in a different century . And wonder what was going on? That kinda explains the way I felt, it seemed like a few months or years ago that I got my car alarm installed and it was 7 or 8 years. Scary where the time goes too.
Well, today I can imagine there are a lot of people still operating their business the way they did the last decade or even maybe 50 years ago. The thing is that business and technology is moving so fast now that if you do not catch up on some of it there is a big danger of your business becoming obsolete.. A dinosaur from another decade or century and unfortunately extinction is not good for business.
Today there are multiple opportunities for getting new clients and customers or finding buyers for your products but the most powerful medium for many businesses is now online. Yes of course word of mouth is good but if everyone is online talking about their next purchase on Facebook. Then sitting looking out a shop window from a half empty high street is not necessarily where you need to be. If you want your business to survive into the next decade.
So you have a few choices
1. Is retire and say I am too old I don’t care anymore and try and sell the business? Which may not be as profitable as it used to be.
2. Pay someone a fortune to create online advertising mediums to get you noticed more online.
3. Set up your own online presence get a blog or website and figure out over the next few months or years how to do it all yourself creating the blog, how to market on social media and all the info overload that comes with it maybe paying tens of thousands of dollars in the process.
