Rules For Good Business!
When running a small business or any business for that matter there are a few rules that are always good to follow.
Good business rules for small business! Rules or procedures ensure that the work and service is efficient and consistently delivered.
Here’s a few that I use for good business rules for small business! :
1. Be Honest:
Honesty is huge in business and life in general. If feel you will not make a deadline or find yourself in a situation “over- your- head,” discuss it with your client. Avoid under delivering or tactics like “sweeping things under the rug.”
Your reputation and quality of work you provide define you and is what keeps customers returning. It is also the major reason why customers recommend you to others. Always “over deliver” whether it is expected or not. It’s a simple plan….. say what your going to do, do it, and make sure rock it!
3. Customer Service:
Communication is huge here. Thank your client for the opportunity to work for them and continually provide project updates. Smile, perform your work and make your decisions with the best interest of your client in mind.
Make the clients experience with you a happy and memorable one. A happy client will be more likely to recommend your services than one who has for gotten about their experience or is trying to forget about their negative experience.
4. Strive To Improve:
Whether your an artist or a craftsman there is always room to improve. Take the time and energy to read, research and learn new and improved techniques, materials and methods. attend continuing education classes and seminars.
Becoming better will only make you and the service you provide that much more sought after.
