How to Bust Out of a Business Plateau

Finding yourself in the midst of a business plateau can be one of the most frustrating experiences for any blog or business owner.

It can often feel like no matter what you do, you just can’t get out of that rut.

Ever been there?

I certainly have, and in this week’s vlog post I detail exactly what we’ve been doing to bust out of this plateau.

How to Bust Out of a Business Plateau

There are 4 specific things that we’ve been doing in our business to break out of this plateau.

1) “Blow up” the business

Been doing the same things for years? Or maybe you think you’ve been trying new things, but in reality? Just more of the same. Think about how you can make a drastic change or shift.

We killed Location 180 and doubled down on Location 180, which was a huge and scary decision for us. But so far seems to have been the right move.

2) Focus on the marketing tasks you enjoy, and do them CONSISTENTLY

That last word is key. I’ve found a lot of success and enjoyment with Instagram for my golf business, so rather than spending time on 6 different social media networks or business strategies – focus on 1 or 2.

That’s what we’ve decided to do with Location Rebel. Check out our new instagram account here.

3) Promote.

No, REALLY Promote. I used to think by sending out a couple tweets and an email that I was promoting – but that’s about 10% of what I should have been doing. See what I mean in the video above.

4) Set Goals and Leverage Technology

Flying by the seat of your pants only works for so long. We’ve been talking, planning, and goal setting for weeks. And we finally have a project management tool that we’re sticking with.
