Maybe it has been a few years, and you’re thinking of preparing your company to scale up. But it can be difficult to figure out if your small business is actually growing, or if it has started to plateau.
How do you really measure the success of your venture? It has to do a lot more than just your earnings – we take a look at other considerations to help you understand the bigger picture.
What your customers say about you
A sure sign that you are doing well is getting overwhelmingly positive feedback from your customers. Whether your digital marketing campaigns are delivering leads and sales, or you are garnering more interests thanks to word-of-mouth, your brand is already generating awareness and enthusiasm.
Another thing that tells you more about customer satisfaction is your retention numbers. It is likely that customers who keep making repeat purchases year after year are happy with your product or service. This not only demonstrates that your business has staying power, but it also grants the opportunity for you to upsell current customers – which are a lot cheaper than acquiring new ones. Thus, focusing on your retention is wise for your bottom line.
The performance of your employees
One of the core components of any successful company is the resources they have at hand, which is your team: the people who work hard to ensure everything operates smoothly. With a great team that collaborates and works well together, you are on your way to achieving the goals of your small business.
Performance reviews are commonly done for most employees, but you should also take a closer look at the value and worth of your team overall. They can make a difference in how your company can strive for growth and success.

Follow the money
Ultimately, the company’s finances play a big role in the success of a small business. But it’s not just about looking at the monthly profits you are earning. Rather, there are three financial statements you should consider: the income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow
Start with your income statement to measure how much money is coming in and going out, which lays out the profitability of your business during a specific period. You can look at it by month, quarter and year. For balance sheet, it captures all the assets and debts you have, giving you a better idea on the sustainability of your small business in the long run. Lastly, a cash flow statement reflects asset liquidity, whether you have the cash to invest in inventory, marketing costs, or new hires – it will help you decide whether it’s a good idea to make a move in your business decision.
Getting more profitable is a good way to measure entrepreneurial success and set you up for expansion. If you’re ready to take your business to the next level, start with the office space to support your growing operations. Our property at Cantonment Central offers large and small offices for rent
