Like many business owners, you may find that there are times when things come to a standstill. Work comes in slowly and turnover drops. This makes meeting your fixed overhead costs extremely stressful. You want to generate more business and have a more constant workflow. If you’ve found yourself in this position, you’ll find this article very useful. Normally when we think of generating more business, we consider increasing our advertising or in some cases, opening a new branch that will bring in extra revenue. When you look at it prudently, you’ll see that this is a risky approach. Increasing your advertising is going to cost more and there is no guarantee that it will bring in the business required to cover these costs. Expanding your existing premises or opening another branch is even riskier. This requires a large capital outlay and you will be increasing your overheads by employing more staff, additional utility bills and the like. If this decision doesn’t result in a substantial increase in turnover, you’ll be in a worse position than before.
