4 Business Growth Strategies to Help You Grow


Here are 4 business growth and development strategies for service businesses:


1. Offer more services to your current clients

This in business terms is called market penetration. As a service business, you might specialise in more than one area and you can offer more business services to your current clients. Let’s say for instance you own a marketing agency and you have one client that you currently give creative services to, you can now offer them some content services to help grow your business. This way you are already tapping into a revenue stream that you already have. 


2. Increase sales of services to unexplored markets 

This is what many business textbooks refer to as market development. According to Hub Brussels, market development involves an analysis of how a company's existing offer can be sold on new markets, or how to grow the existing market. If you are a business offering accounting services to small businesses in the IT industry, you can develop your business by exploring and tapping into creating service offerings for businesses in the manufacturing industry. 


3. Launch new services in your business

This is referred to as product development. With product development, you can launch new services that can work in the current market. This works if you are a small business with fewer offerings but you have identified that some of your clients can use a particular service. You then introduce this service to your business and offer it to your clients. An example would be an IT service provider who only offers installation and maintenance services but can see that cybersecurity is a major concern for most clients. The service provider can therefore expand his service offerings to include cyber security. 


4. Offer new services to a completely unknown market

This is by far the scariest move when it comes to business growth and development. This offering looks at offering a completely new service to an unknown market that might not know what your business is and how it can help them. For example, an IT service provider taking his/her new services such as cybersecurity to a market in the rural areas. Many businesses there do not understand why they need that service and might not receive a reliable product offering either. 


There are many opportunities for you when it comes to business growth. One other way you can help grow your business is by joining a marketplace. 


Joining a marketplace is the most effective way for your business to gain exposure. Marketplaces are visited by a large number of people daily and having your business listed there means that are guaranteed brand exposure but can also get sales from being available.
