How to Revive a Family Business

>> Feb 9, 2016

Running a local family business can be tough. You might have been doing great in the past, but things are likely to turn around, and now you’ve probably hit a bad streak if you’re reading this. If your sales are slowing down, and you don’t really see a bright future, you need to do something. But, there’s one thing you can do and should do. Get your family business online as soon as possible. It’s one of the first things you should do and one of the best things you can do.

A family business usually operates on a lower amount of cash that can be used for marketing, and the Internet is a perfect place for those business that are exactly like that. Actually, when done properly, a well planned and executed Internet marketing campaign will do more for a family business than a traditional campaign.

Think about this. When somebody is searching for a local business, they are most often looking for a family business. That is where you have an advantage. You and your family have a clear edge over the rest of the business in the area, if they are not run by local families.

Another thing, those who are looking for such a local family run business don’t really turn to the yellow pages, but rather they look on the Internet. And that is why you need to there. If you’re not there, the chances of them finding you and the chances of your family business once again thriving go down rapidly. You should also consider getting listed. Think about that well and hard and consider if it is the best option for your local family business.

Another thing you should be doing is reaching out towards the local community. As we have said before, you as a local family have a clear advantage over new business that are run by individuals or larger companies. One of the biggest advantages you have is really trust. People tend to put their trust is somebody they know, and if your family has been in the area for a few generations, that trust is pretty high. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t do more. Talk with your family, your wife, husband, and your children, and tell them that for the sake of the family business, they need to interact with the community a bit differently. They are, in the end, a part of the family business, and they need to contribute to it. And one way of doing it is interacting with the community to build trust and having a good relationship with the people who revolve around the business. It is not easy to do, but is important.

And the final thing you should be doing is keeping the flame alive. One of the most difficult things about operating a family business is maintaining the relationships within it. Families are by nature very close, and that means there are going to be sparks flying around. Arguments and fights are normal, you just have to make sure they don’t get out of hand. Keep the relationships in the family at a good level, and your business won’t suffer. Have a picnic from time to time. Go fishing. Have some family activities, as a family, and you’ll see how things are much better. You’ll feel happier, both as a family, and as business
