10 ways to invest your profits in order to make your company better
When it comes to profiting with your business, you need to remember that you'll have to reinvest some, or most of it, back into you company in order to bring in even more sales. Have you ever been to store that has a dollar bill framed behind the register? It's usually their first dollar that came through the business and it's now framed as a sort of reminder to when they started out. You'll always need to be pushing your business in order to stay successful. If you think you're safe when it comes to reinvesting your profits, you're going to start failing
Below are a few ways to reinvest your profits to make your business even better
1. Improve your business
Most of the time a startup will take 90% of their profits and push it back into marketing in order to generate sales. This is good and all, but you'll want to push your business at a rate you can keep up with. If you jump from 10 sales a day to 1,000 a day, you'll get overwhelmed and begin seeing negative reviews popping up online because your orders aren't going out on time. People are evil when it comes to social media and posting to blogs, don't give them a reason to put you in their cross hairs.
You will want to focus on investing your profits into better equipment and systems in order to make your customer service better, increase the moral across the office and possibly expand if that's the stage you're at
2. Digital Marketing
When it comes to profits, you should always be pushing some of that into digital marketing. This is because when it comes to digital marketing, if it's done right, you will see a great ROI. There have been companies that have spent $1,000 on their digital marketing each month and in time it started to show a 500% to 1,000% ROI Of course it won't be instant, but you'll be able to notice your investment coming back to you in terms of increased sales
3. Investing Within
When you invest in your own team, they will see you as trying to make their job easier for them to complete. This will not only increase the moral across the office but have employee loyalty because you see them as more than someone that is performing a task for you. You can even give out bonuses if you're at a point where you can risk it without going bankrupt People love bonuses and will work harder for you if they're getting them
Hiring new employees who don't need to be trained is another great way to invest within. The time it takes to train someone to do everything could be up to 1 year. Imagine if you didn't have to train someone because they already knew everything? That would save you a ton of money in the long run
4. Make Yourself Better
Most companies forget that when it comes to working with a large group of workers, they managers may not be very good at talking with others. You can take a class with your other managers that teaches you how to work well with others while you're in a management position. Some business owners are so determined to run everything it could actually hurt the business. They need to learn how to work with their managers and employees in order to have a well oiled machine that never needs a tune up
A lot of times that you will need to take these classes is if you have never had any business management experience in the past. If you became successful overnight and now need 10 employees, I can guarantee that you won't act much like a manager when it comes to disciplining or just talking with them.
5. Hiring People to Help Out
Entrepreneurs are the type of people that built their company's from the ground up and are so use to doing everything on their own that they sometimes don't realize they are overworking themselves. By hiring someone to come in and help out, you're going to reduce the amount of work that you will have to do and you'll be a happier person because of it
6. Hire a Business Coach
When you're new to business and you want to make everything better, you may not have the skills it takes to do it all. Hiring a business coach helps in so many ways. They can help you with how your leadership role works, they can talk to investors for you, they can help you with your business strategy, they can help you with how to deal with conflicts between employees, and so many more things.
7. Outsourcing Tasks
When it comes to small repetitive tasks, we all know they are horrible. Why not just hire someone that you can outsource this repetitive work to which would make you a happier person and also free up some of your own time? This could be anything from balancing your books to data entry, whatever small tasks you have, I'm sure there is someone out there willing to help you out as long as you pay them Just be sure they are qualified for the jobs you want them to perform before you give them access to everything.
8. Invest in SEO
If you haven't launched a company website already, you need to get on that because you're already losing to your competitors. You'll need to spend a good amount of time optimizing everything you can from the titles to the content, and if you're not sure how to do this then you should be outsourcing the work. SEO is not something you you'll just learn overnight, so be sure to have someone work on it instead of you trying you're best to do something. I've had plenty of people contact me after they've been working on their website for a few weeks and still don't understand how to do anything lol.
9. Security Cash
Investing in your business is always what you need to do in order to be successful. There has never been a company that didn't reinvest their profits and become great. You will always need to spend money to make money, at least when it comes to becoming rich lol. But saving some money is a good strategy just in case some things don't work out. If you have a decent cash buffer to last you 10 or 12 months, you're going to be just fine if something terribly bad goes wrong and everything starts to fail.
10. Don't Branch Out Too Early
A lot of entrepreneurs will become successful and then start investing their money in other ventures. Now that wouldn't be a bad thing if you're making a ton of money, but you'll want to stick with your current venture for a while and make it the best it can be. Branching out from your profiting machine will only make it work overtime in order to push a different venture. You will want to push you main venture until it feels like you've capped out on profits each month, then reinvest into a different venture.
Doing this will help you hold a sort of security just in case anything fails with your new ventures. You will be able to fall back on your main venture and rebuild.
These are 10 ways you can use your profits to make your own business better. Some of them may seem pretty obvious while others might not. Reinvesting your profits into your own business is as strategic as an advanced SEO and Marketing campaign. You will need to see every step before you take it and always be ready for something to fail.
