How to fight the summer slump and make your business shine
Summer is often a tricky time for businesses to navigate. Increase in holidays, dips in productivity and projects which seem to last forever. But it doesn’t need to be that way. We will share our tips on how this can be a profitable and rewarding season for your company.
“Summer doesn’t need to have a negative effect on your business. Post – holiday, your team will be refreshed and rejuvenated ready for the remainder of the year”
Thank your team
In the bright summer months everyone is more sociable so what better time to throw a summer party to reward your team for their hard work. This will motivate them for the remainder of the year and show them how much you appreciate their efforts.
Run a client nurturing campaign
We are all becoming increasingly busy and this can affect the needs of our regular customers. The quieter summer months are the time to nurture your existing and loyal client base. Special treats such as hand written notes, personalised notebooks or invitations to a client event will remind them how important they are to you and will continue to grow your corporate relationships.
Panning is Key
It’s good for your team to take a much needed break but make sure they put their holiday requests in early. This will allow you to manage workloads and spot any troublesome periods.
Get ahead of the game
With the majority of clients out of office, now is the time to do all of those little tasks which get pushed aside during busier months. Archive those dormant work folders and clean those client databases allowing you to hit the ground running when business picks up.
