Make sure you have good customer service
A business with poor customer service will rarely stay successful or grow any further than what it is. If you can have good or great customer service you are going to be able to increase your success and maintain it. What customer service does is allow you to keep current customers so you have a loyal and returning customer base, but it also helps with referrals and word of mouth. If a customer has a good service experience they are more likely to refer you on to their friends and family which helps to build up your customers too.
Outsource if you need to
Some businesses will try and do everything themselves or train up and hire more staff to complete jobs, but on occasion this can end up costing you more money than if you just outsourced the job. For example if you need to service your business vehicles then look for some commercial servicing businesses that can help with it, this will allow you to spend more time on other parts of the business and can save you money on having to hire people for one off jobs. Outsourcing can be used for all sorts of odd jobs and can open up more options of jobs and services you can take on and offer.
