For most creative online business owners, summer is a slower time. Sales slow, people go on vacations, and people work less. But did you know that the summer is also the perfect time to tune-up your business systems?
YOU HAVE TIME TO EVALUATE WHAT WORKED IN YOUR BUSY SEASON
While it can be an exciting idea to keep going and be busy every month of the year (okay, well maybe only 10 months out of the year), having a slower season in the summer gives you time to really step back and reflect on what happened during your busy season.
This space and time to evaluate what worked and what didn’t will allow you to make tweaks now that will help you in your next busy season.
YOU CAN TEST OUT NEW SYSTEMS BEFORE YOU GET BUSY AGAIN
Once you’ve evaluated what worked for you and what didn’t, it’s time to make some tweaks to your systems! When you do this in the summer, you’re able to see if they help or hinder you without feeling the panic of having to re-evaluate the tweak when you’re at your busiest.
So take advantage of the summer to try new things! See how they feel for you, if your clients and customers like the new systems you put in place, and really have the space to experiment before things pick up again.
But if you’re like most creative business owners, figuring out what worked and what didn’t (as well as what things to start tweaking) might seem like an insurmountable task.
