New Year Resolutions

As the New Year begins, it’s important for all small business owners to look back on and learn from the progress and setbacks that were made in their businesses. Whether you operate skill gaming machines or not it’s imperative to focus your efforts on improving areas of your business that you felt were weakest. Improvements in these areas should be your small business’s New Year’s resolutions! Checking a few of these off your list will ensure you have a successful 2022 financially and give you peace of mind.

Reflect on mishaps

If you are a small business owner, you will likely have had a few mistakes or mishaps that took place over the last year. This is true whether you operate gaming machines or not. Look back on these events and learn from them. Were these mishaps something that could have been avoided? If not, is there something you could have done differently to affect the outcome?

Know your customers’ mindset

Customers are in need of something. If you want to attract and keep new skill game players, you need to understand who they are and why they come to your location. You have to develop a rapport with them. Get feedback on what you could do to improve their experience.

Update Your Social Media

It doesn’t matter if you are a small mom and pop convenience store with a couple of stand-up cabinets, or a larger bar, restaurant or gas station, with a slew of electronic gaming machines, you likely have some kind of social media and online presence. It could be Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, or even Pinterest. Begin the year by updating your profile with relevant material. Showcase your gaming cabinets and possibly highlight winners if appropriate. Be sure that it’s easy for your customers and players to find you online. Consider some paid advertising or holding some special promotions if you need to ramp up sales. Staying relevant in your customers’ lives now can ensure you keep them coming in the door in the future. Social media is an ongoing effort and can be time-consuming, so consider delegating an employee to do it if you cannot find the time.

Get the best return on your investment

Do you have these gaming cabinets in your location? If you are looking to generate more income there is no better product than our electronic gaming machines. These stand-ups can keep paying customers in your establishment for long periods of time every day. Not only will they keep people in your location, but the gaming cabinets also do most of the work for you. Players find them and play them sometimes for hours with little involvement from you or your staff.

Gain more knowledge

No matter how long you have been in your field, it is important to never stop learning. There is always something you do not know that could help you. Whether it’s learning more about your electronic gaming devices and players, or simply networking with other similar small business owners to gain valuable insight and ideas, ensure that you are focused on improving your knowledge. This can only help you in the New Year.

Stay Organized

Sometimes the most basic resolutions can be the hardest. Luckily for you, Funambulist Gaming has your electronic skill game bookkeeping and organization as a no-brainer. Our accounting system is automated and does most of the work for you. If it was difficult for you to keep the records of your small business organized before, you can rest easy with the knowledge that your skill game records are easily managed and safely recorded and stored for your convenience.

Fine-tune your mission statement

One of the main things you never want to lose focus on is why you are doing what you do. You never need to lose sight of this. What is the purpose of your business? What are you trying to achieve? Has this changed over the past year? A business plan can help answer these questions. It doesn’t have to be something extravagant, but it should be something you can refer back to as a guide to ensure that you stay focused on the big picture. If you have partners and employees, get their input to create objectives that are measurable and realistic. Be sure to keep these questions and this purposeful attitude in the forefront of your mind. Plan accordingly, and remember to keep revisiting this over the next 12 months.

Balance your work and personal life

Resolving to improve your time off might seem counterproductive to your business resolutions, but it only makes sense that you cannot run an effective business if your mind and body are not rested. Most small business owners work around the clock. This takes away time from their families and other personal responsibilities. Doing this day in and day out can take a toll on your business. You need to be sure you are giving yourself adequate time to recoup, rest, and plan for the days when you are in your business.
