Ways You Can Grow Your Small Business Today
As a budding (or already super seasoned, let’s be honest) business owner, you’re always looking for ways to grow and expand your business. After all, isn’t one of the reasons you became an entrepreneur so you could take your industry to another level? But all of the articles out there about taking your biz to new heights say to expect results in x weeks and y months. Some can even take years. And while it’s true that success is found in riding it out and trial + error, it’s nice to do some things every now and then that can grow your business today.
So what are those things?
We have a few ideas...
1. Attend a Networking Event
Attending a networking event with like minded entrepreneurs is a surefire way to immediately get your business in front of new eyes. People are always about the social media exchange (growing your following and engagement) and it’s a wonderful time to find people to create joint venture opportunities with.

2. Influencer Marketing
We’ve seen incredible results with influencer marketing. Specifically using brands that can prove they get true blue engagement (harder to find than you’d think these days!) and actually care about your product. Find an influencer whose rate is within your budget and start a conversation. Even if you can only do one a quarter, we know many brands who have seen this grow their yearly profits ten-fold!
3. Send an Email
Send an email to your list — like, as soon as you’re done reading this! Remind them of your brand, your products and the incredible effort that goes into creating your inventory. We recommend a small coupon and/or referral program to really get things moving. If they share a special code they can get 15% off their next order? Done. Deal.
