Almost everyone makes personal New Year’s resolutions, whether it’s to get in shape, save money, or start a new hobby.

If you’re a business owner, it’s a great idea to make resolutions that will help simplify your life and grow your business. If you don’t know where to start, we’ve put together a list of ten corporate resolutions anyone can stick to.

Business New Years Resolutions 2020

10 New Year’s resolutions for small businesses for 2021

1. Review your business plan and goals

The start of the year is a great time to review your business plan and goals. Do you need to revise your business plan? Did you set any goals last year? If so, how did you go about them? Have your goals changed? Write it all down so you know what you’re working into for the New Year. Having a plan and defined goals helps you stay on track throughout the year and can make all the difference to being successful.

2. Plan more

You have set your goals, now you need to plan how you will get there. If one of your goals is more leads or customers, a new digital marketing plan will help you attract more customers.

If your website is over a few years old, a website redesign should be part of your plan to bring your business into the New Year.

3. Prioritize

When everything is a priority, nothing is. Use your goals and plans to decide what to focus on and what you can get lower on your priority list (or take off entirely). Not only will this make your life easier, but you will also be able to focus on what is important and start to see results.

4. Start a blog (and update it regularly)

A blog is one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to add new content to your site, which is essential for SEO purposes. It also allows you to share valuable information with your audience, provides you with ongoing material for social media, and positions you as a leader in your niche.

Blogging doesn’t have to be a chore, and you don’t have to post every day. In fact, one high quality article per week is better than one low quality article each day. And when it comes to writing, get creative! If you were a client of your own business, what would you like to read? Chances are, your customers will want to read the same things.

5. Make more use of social media

Social media is invaluable to a business. In 2021, resolve to use social media every day: interact with customers and other users, answer questions and post engaging content. There are several free social media scheduling tools you can use to schedule a week of posts at a time, which makes social media easier.

Don’t know which network (s) to use? Don’t jump into all of them! Prioritize the network your customers are already using. For most businesses, this is Facebook and / or Instagram. Build your audience on one of these platforms and if you feel comfortable you can connect to Twitter, Pinterest, Youtube, etc.

6. Attend networking events

This is often overlooked by many small business owners, but it is so important. In 2021, resolve to attend a few networking events to meet other small business owners in your area. Networking can help you find new opportunities, customers, collaborators, suppliers, service providers, and even friends. Use a service like Eventbrite to find events in your area. Chances are there are plenty of free networking opportunities already planned for the New Year!

7. Learn to delegate

If you only choose one New Year’s resolution for your business, choose this one. As a business owner, there are probably a thousand things on your to-do list, but you don’t have to do them yourself. Learn to delegate and let others do some of your work this year.

Have trusted employees handle the day-to-day chores you do, hire an agency to handle your digital marketing, or even find a housekeeping service to handle some of your chores around the house. The idea is to outsource tasks that others can handle so that you can focus on the parts of your business – and your life – that you want.

8. Get rid of what doesn’t work

In 2021, get rid of the parts of your business that aren’t performing the way you need them to and find solutions that work. Whether it’s your uncomfortable office chair, the printer that sometimes works, or a supplier that regularly runs out of everything you need, it’s time to say goodbye to them and use only items that work the way you need them.

9. Listen to your customers and employees

The old adage, “the customer is always right,” means that if your customers are asking for something that you aren’t wearing, it’s time to fix it. Is there something your customers have been asking or even demanding? See how you can provide them with that good or service. They will thank you with dollar bills.

And the same goes for your employees. Listen to them: ask them what works, what doesn’t and how you could make their job better and easier. And remember: a good leader listens and follows through.

10. Document your processes

With all the positive changes you’ll be making in 2021, it’s important to document your processes, especially if you haven’t done so in the past. Documentation of your day-to-day operations, integration, business plan, business goals, etc. will make things easier for you and your employees throughout the year.
