Are you feeling stuck and seeing your business not getting the results you want? You probably started your business with great enthusiasm and very motivated, and now you work long hours, investing not only time, but also energy and money, and yet you see no results or not the desired results.
You become discouraged, you begin to doubt your abilities or your idea, you lose the initial desire and motivation and no longer know what to do next. Keep it up, give up, maybe change something?
If you find yourself in this situation, these are my recommendations:
1. Identify the problem
If you don’t know what’s wrong, you can’t fix it. Maybe with the daily grind and discouragement you haven’t even stopped thinking about what’s going on. What’s happening? You don’t have enough customers, income, you are no longer enthusiastic about what you do, what’s the problem?
Based on that, you can determine What strategy do you need to get out of the pothole?. For this it is important that you know very well how your company works and your figures. What you earn, what you spend, the conversations you have with prospects, the advertising you do, and whether you’re still excited about what you offer (not everything is a matter of numbers, and if you don’t like what you do, no matter how much you earn, you will be satisfied).
You have to be aware of everything to be able to do it analyze At any time what works and what doesn’t and make the necessary changes, whether by hiring someone, go to professionals like that SEM consultant (as a good SEM consultant can be a key factor in getting your company back on track), take a course or change projects, but don’t make a decision without knowing your company’s situation very well.
2. Beware of impatience
Sometimes it’s not that things aren’t working out, it’s that you’re sowing and the time to reap hasn’t come yet. It’s one of the most difficult periods of any business because we all want to see instant results but sometimes it’s not possible and You must keep sowing and wait until you start to see the fruits.
Impatience can cause you to make ill-considered decisions, and while it’s always good to listen to your intuition, I believe business decisions need to be made strategically, not randomly.
Of course, you have to weigh up whether it’s really about persevering or changing something. You will know that when, as I mentioned before, you know exactly the figures of your company and when you see that there is progress. When something moves or everything stands still. If there is progress that is a good sign, if you have not made any progress for a while it is time to review the situation.
3. Avoid comparisons
In this situation, it’s very easy to compare yourself to others and feel even worse. Comparisons are meant to be hated for a reason. If you analyze your competition strategically and with common sense, but start comparing your company to others, going down is another matter. Remember that often what you see is one thing and another reality. In addition, many professionals who are successful today have worked hard for many years; and there are few people who are successful overnight and they are the exception.
This is not the time for comparisons, but for focus what works for your business regardless of what others are doing. At most, ask yourself what you like or envy about this person, their life, or their success. That tells you a lot about what you really want to achieve and you can move on with it.
4. Concentrate on the essentials
Now more than ever it is important that you Focus on what can make your business work and don’t start doing any things or e.g. B. Wasting time in front of the computer or on social networks out of desperation. Think about what you need now and move on. Things won’t solve themselves, you have to determine what’s wrong and get to work.
