Spring Cleaning: How To Do It In Your Business To Make More Room For Success

By Tresaca Hamilton
Posted Tuesday, January 18, 2005

With the arrival of Spring, I decided to get outside and into my garden. I had neglected to do some basic maintenance during the previous months and wondered if my plants suffered any permanent damage as a result.

My flower bed was full of dead foliage and there wasn't a sign of new growth anywhere. I spent a considerable amount of time removing the dead foliage in order to allow room for the new growth to emerge.

I was pleasantly surprised to see new growth already emerging once I removed all of the dead foliage. I gave the plants plenty of water and fertilizer as a final step, and moved on to other yard work tasks.

A couple of hours later, I looked at my plants and was amazed at how much they had grown. They had literally doubled in size! I was expecting to see some results, but not so much in such a short amount of time.

After assuring myself that I wasn't seeing things, I realized what had happened and why, and how it relates to Marketing your Business.

Here are the lessons from my garden:

1. Look At What You Have Already Planted:

How are you currently marketing your business? Think about who you are marketing to and the results you are getting from your efforts.

Are you getting the results you want, such as more clients and increased revenue?

2. Remove The Dead Foliage:

If you are not getting the results you want from your current marketing efforts, it is time to look at what is working and what is not.

Once you determine what is not working, you need to remove it and replace it with more of what is working or add something new that will work for you.

If something is dead, it can not grow. Stop focusing your time and money on marketing that is killing your business.

3. Prepare For Growth:

Once you have removed what is not working, you will have more room to focus on improving and growing your business.

Analyze what is working for you and why. Then do more of it and add other strategies that will give you similar results.

Create systems for your business based on effective marketing in order to ensure continuous growth.

It may seem like magic when the growth suddenly appears in your business, but it will actually be the result of simply removing what is not working for you and replacing it with effective marketing.

The magic is in watching your business bloom!
