How to Take Advantage of the Off Season

The busy season is exciting, but exhausting. It is great to have extra free time but how are you supposed to keep your business moving in the right direction when business is slow? Here are 5 things you can do to improve your business in the off season:

  1. Trim the fat. Now that you have time to breath you can review any and all operating expenses to see where you can trim the fat. It is very easy for these things to go unnoticed when you’re schedule is slammed so take advantage of the free time to evaluate and take action.
  2. Process Improvement. Meet with everyone on the team and walk through all of your current processes.  Discuss things that you need to start doing and things that you should stop doing. The goal is to eliminate duplicate efforts, stream line necessary actions, eliminate pain points etc.
  3. Improve marketing. Readdress your value proposition with your customers and build a marketing plan that will put you top of mind when the next season rolls around. When things are hectic marketing often is placed at the bottom of the priority list. Give it the attention is deserves and you’ll see the benefits.
  4. Have fun. This is the best time to take a deep breath and relax! Spend time with family, friends, and plan some activities for your team. After a long stretch of hard work everyone needs to have fun and take a load off, this will improve team moral, attitude, and culture.
  5. Implement software solutions. Software will make the busy season more manageable, you want to apply technology anywhere in the business that will allow you to automate actions, integrate information or help increase profitability. The off season is the best time for this so that you can take the time to learn the software and hit the ground running when things pick back up.
