IT Company Growth Tips
So your IT support company has a solid base of clients, but you’re looking to grow. Here are powerful tips for how to find new clients.
1. Leverage the power of social media to generate more sales.
Never before in history have start-ups so easily been able to connect with niche markets that can supply lucrative customers. The strategic use of LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and blogging can pay dividends and also build up your reputation with the search engines.
2. Use internet crowdfunding and other creative strategies to finance your business.
In the tech days of yore (10 to 15 years ago), start ups had to beg powerful VCs for help. Those days have passed. Today, you can use Kickstarter and other sources of crowdfunding to accumulate enough money to help your tech support company grow.
3. Use advanced technologies, like the Cloud and Mobile Apps, to reduce your investments, speed up innovation and streamline your operations.
You don’t have to do everything in-house. Thanks to Software as a Service (SaaS) subscription services, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) services and remote desktop connection services, you can grow a pretty robust company without much real world infrastructure.
4. Finally, do not lose sight of your values!
Author Jim Collins writes in his bestseller “Built to Last” that companies that hold true to their values are more likely to attract the right people and develop sustainable competitive advantages.
