As a firm, it’s important that every decision you make is somehow informed by your best judgment, and by viewing many of the options available to you. This can seem quite clear on the surface. However, it’s often that when we hope to be at the cutting edge of our industry, we only adopt the industry accepted methods of doing things. This can limit creativity and innovation in your business planning, and it can also leave you becoming quite inflexible. Sometimes, it can simply backfire, even if the accepted theory seems like a risk worth taking.
To give an example of this, think of how many firms have adopted the ‘sarcastic Twitter’ method of promoting themselves on social media, often inspired by companies famous for it such as Wendy’s. This in itself can turn a groan from most modern consumers, as we know just how many levels of corporate agreement were required before this ‘natural’ approach became something impressed upon us.
This means that while it can be important to select the alternate options for the best long term results, conducting your research beforehand is important. In this post, we hope to help you with that:
Using Better Services
Using better services for your alternate needs can be a great idea. Instead of using the standard options, new era fuels have made reliable servicing, great messaging, and a reliable product part of their mission statement, allowing for something as necessary as your fuelling supplies to remain more reliable than other services, particularly if you need a custom solution. As a firm, we are only as good as the supplies we use, and so using granular support in this way can be a great idea.
Breaking convention can help you avoid the pitfalls that boring approaches may have, and instead give you a radically different plan of attack, worthy of consideration. For example, it might be that you wish to resolve a common issue within your industry through stellar service. Let us consider training, for example. Perhaps instead of training your staff once a year at the same time each year, you stagger their training with adherence to a new working method a month before they have to practically use that on a project you have upcoming. This way a skillset can be applied in the most pressing manner. Convention is not always there to help, and so rigorously trying to customize it can be a great idea.
Being Different In The Space
It can also be important to try and figure out how your business can be unique in the space you occupy. It’s important to follow the wisest ideals, and sometimes, that can come from tradition. But it might also be that you wish to stamp your own identity on your industry at large. Perhaps offering a subscription service instead of selling outright, or offering longer warranties, or doing everything you can to build goodwill can be the method of the future.
When you achieve this advice, you’ll always at least consider your options, even if you rarely use them.
