So it's January, how are your New Year's resolutions coming? No, I'm not talking about how much weight you've lost or how many days you've managed to floss in a row (but congratulations) - I'm talking about the resolutions and goals you've set for your small business for the upcoming year. More than half of small businesses make new years resolutions. The start of a new year is a natural time to look back over the previous one and plan for the next one. Did your last year go as well as you had hoped? What can you do to avoid the problems you faced in 2018 and maximize your opportunities in 2019?
Whether it be to contact customers more often, blog more frequently, focus more on social media, or launch a pending marketing campaign, small business owners have a lot on their minds. But somehow IT planning isn't ever on the radar. You rely on technology for your company to function, so why aren't you giving it the attention it deserves? There are easy and low-cost ways you can improve your whole IT infrastructure for the upcoming year, and it's never too late to get started.
