Here at Worth Of Mouth, we were able to talk to Bridge the Gap, a service provided by S3 Management Consultancy set up by Emmanuel Akinwunmi. Bridge the Gap gives advice on how to launch a business and make it successful.
Here are three tips from Emmanuel himself that will surely help small business prosper to reach its greater goals.
1. Have A Plan
Whenever considering business prospects, it is really important to have a business plan to track your goals, objectives and work out logistics so you can feel more confident about how to execute your ideas.
Without a plan – it is difficult to measure out finances, time and responsibilities so that your idea can be made into something bigger. Having a blueprint is how you can elevate your business to the next level as there is a difference between making profit from a business and making a living from it.
Bridge the Gap provides indefinite support and does all the right research on how to ensure you have an accomplished business. If you already have a business and want to enhance your service to make it more accessible, they also provide market plans on how to bring more attention to your business.
With this, you can engage and retain customers – this has a massive impact as it means that customer flow increases leading to larger profits over time. Additionally, Bridge the Gap provides information to make useful plans by offering a summary report after attending workshops. They also give on-going support so your business goals can be fulfilled.
2. Be Resilient
Starting a business is not going to be easy, expect there to be problems and obstacles that will slow you down, but Emmanuel says:
“it is important to be resilient as an entrepreneur. Results do not always appear straight away.
You must have a lot of patience and belief in your business for it to excel and, eventually, it will.”
Consistency plans are a good strategy to success as being prepared for the worst means you have thought about any potential issues and have been able to find a way around it. Bridge the Gap provide specific, detailed advice that will be tailored to you and your company so that you can strategically stand out in the market, all you have to do is be persistent.
3. Be Adaptable
Sometimes the hardest part about running a successful business is not starting up, it’s maintaining it. Emmanuel gave examples of how even credited big businesses have struggled to sustain their relevance amongst their competitors.
For example Zoom has now surpassed Skype as the most commonly used webcam call because they allowed more than two people to connect – or how Primark has been financially suffering significantly because they were unable to adapt to the ‘new normal‘ of online shopping during the COVID-19 crisis.
Businesses need to be innovative and adaptable. Otherwise, they will get left behind or even worse – collapse. Staying on top of the game is vital in a business. Implementing new developments and identifying ways to keep customers engaged can be crucial for the survival of your business or it might even be the edge that is needed to boost your business.
