It’s that time of year. The weatherman indicated that there will be no more snow.

The flowers will bloom, grass will turn green and the sunshine will bring us the warmth of spring. Spring brings about many changes from new or cleaned clothes, to housecleaning, getting our cars cleaned and polished… the list goes on and on. So let’s talk about Spring Cleaning your Franchise Business.

Now is the time to go through those hard files and eliminate the dead ones. This goes for online files as well…delete the useless ones.

When is the last time you updated your data base and sorted through the active, the potential or the lost cause customer list? Is it time to make a fresh new brochure/business cards, or flyers as opposed to using the original? When is the last time you updated your website?

Fresh and clean and new, bring fresh and clean and new leads.

Make a list of what is working for you and what isn’t and renew/improve what works.

What does your desk or office look like? Does it look neat and tidy or disorganized and cluttered? File things away, put books on the shelf where they belong and get rid of old newspapers, magazines or anything that clutters the area.

Time to Spruce you up too! Are you getting exercise on a regular basis? Are you networking with colleagues? Are you attending seminars and conventions to keep your spark plugs clean for motivation to enhance your business? Are you testing your own products to make sure they are the very best for your customer? Are you keeping your family happy and involved? A Cruise Industry Franchise can be a family affair.

Spring has sprung and now it is time for you to bloom and use this time to make your business tactics fresh and clean… and then take it to sea with new customers.
