2. Customer Service
As a small business, your biggest ticket to continuous sales is a GOOD EXPERIENCE. Happy customers will keep coming back for your business. Your loyal customers also provide free marketing through word of mouth or referrals. The next thing you know, you have a huge loyal client list!

You're a small business and you have a lot to establish. But you can only do so much in a day. Learn to delegate.
Find a specialist to handle your marketing, your bookkeeper/ accountant, and so much more. This saves you from the stress of mishandling the aspect of your business you don't specialize in.
Now you can focus on quality control, improving your services, and other important things only you can handle.
Making use of your time wisely in mapping out your strategy, maintaining good customer service, and delegating will help you achieve a different level of success.
