Great Ideas to Start Your New Business Year
Last updated:January 19th, 2022 by The Migration Translators

If you were glad 2021 was over and are wondering just how 2022 is going to pan out for you and your business, it is worth taking a positive approach and prioritizing your new year’s resolutions. Here are some ideas to mull over while you are re-jigging your business plans for this year.

Great Ideas to Start Your New Business Year

1. This might be the perfect time to consider outsourcing

Many employees are staying at home, either while they recover from Covid, or because they don’t want to catch it. This might be the perfect time to consider outsourcing. Outsourcing has many advantages over an in-house workforce. These days, there are several good global outsourcing websites where employers and freelance contractors can meet to negotiate terms of employment. The range of outsourcing services is growing yearly and the plus side is that you don’t have to pay for permanent staff, overtime rates, or holiday pay.

2. Expand your business market overseas

One great business New Year’s resolution might be to put in action an expansion plan to market your products overseas. You will need to do some research into whether an overseas market exists and what you need to penetrate it. It will involve adapting your website, creating new marketing tools with the help of translators, and researching ways of freighting your products to wherever your new market is. The benefit is that you may be able to avoid the sort of competition you are experiencing at home, or at least get one step ahead of any other businesses thinking of doing the same. The international market, depending of course on what your products are, is potentially massive.

3. Take a thorough look at your current marketing strategy

How does your marketing strategy stack up now it’s the start of 2022? Has it changed and adapted since your business started up? Are you using outdated marketing techniques? Are you failing to reach sections of your potential market because the strategy you’ve been using hasn’t been tweaked? Can you afford to have a marketing blitz? Have you updated your website recently? Do you employ a search engine optimization specialist to improve your search engine ranking? There are plenty of ideas there for you to mull over while the enthusiasm of a brand New Year is still with you.

4. Improve your customer service

It’s hard to hide from your customers these days. If they think they haven’t been getting a good deal from your business they will let other potential customers know about it. The internet is so pervasive these days, it can work both ways in terms of your reputation. You can promote yourself as much as you want to through your website and other marketing techniques, but inevitably this gets matched by customers’ reviews. If you are only getting 1, 2 or 3 out of 5 stars for customer service then this is the time to seriously consider what you are doing wrong. Successful business owners listen to their customers and especially when they have criticized some aspect of their experience. It is your aim in 2022 to correct these failures and improve customer service. This is an excellent investment in future sales, as whether customers pass on a good experience by word of mouth or do it online, that flood of four and five stars for customer service will make all the difference.

5. Time to invest in new infrastructure?

New infrastructure, whether it is machinery, office space, electronic technology, or software, can improve your business efficiency and productivity. Make a list, do your sums, and invest for the future.


New Year’s resolutions are often thought to be just for individuals, but they can be good for businesses and organizations of all types as well. A new year is always a time when fresh thinking and good intentions can combine to get done things in a new way or put into action ideas you had last year but never seemed to be able to get done.
