Here are the tips on how to keep your business stay on the right track and relevant in order to retain your customers and prevent the bankruptcy from happening:
Focus on the main goals
When your business achieves one of the many goals you’ve set in the beginning, don’t get too worked up that you neglect your main objectives and purposes of running a business. Broadening the range of your business goal is completely fine, but it’ll become dangerous if you don’t fulfill the original goal.
What you need to do is to simply reflect and see if you’ve fulfilled the original goal. If you haven’t, don’t be too hasty about chasing objectives that might can get your business off the track.
If your company is not accessible, how do you expect your customers to be able to purchase your products? Both B2B and B2C businesses need to understand their customers’ purchasing behavior is highly affected by whether they can easily purchase something from a company or not. For businesses that sell goods to end customers, you can try to make your physical store more convenient. For example, you can place a store in the downtown so that your customers can easily purchase your products.
Meanwhile, B2B businesses can try to be more accessible by running social media accounts such as LinkedIn or Facebook so that the prospective clients can contact the business to work together more easily and with less hassle.

Be committed to the business
Your business is the source of your income. When you’re not serious about running a business, you can’t expect to create any money. And since you’re not serious, your customers won’t take your business seriously, too. You can’t just halfheartedly run a business and expect people to buy your products. As we’ve said earlier, one of the factors that affects a customer’s purchasing behavior is convenience, and you should be the one who provides it to your potential customers.
If you’re not committed to your business, why did you bother running it in the first place?
Hire the best people
When running a business, you’re not going to run it all by yourself. You’re going to need some people to help you, and what you need to do is to hire the best people to do the job. Without the best people working together with you, how can you deliver the best results to your potential customers?
Once you’ve found a way to keep your business going and stay on the right track, your customers will automatically flock on to your business, although not instantly. Stay focused, make your business be accessible, hire the best employees and ultimately commit yourself to your business.
