Get Ready for 2019, Baby

Well well well, look who’s survived the holidays. We hope you are ready for one last night of fun and merriment, and celebrating all of the good things that happened this year. We know we’re so incredibly grateful to everyone we’ve been able to meet and work with this year through our family entertainment center software. It’s been wild.

And we can’t wait to see what happens in 2019. We’re looking forward to another amazing year full of great people, hard work, and good times.

If you’ve been thinking about getting in touch, make 2019 the year you do. Our birthday party booking software can help you streamline your business, and even help you be more profitable. Yes, we’re actually willing to say that, because we believe it and we’ve seen it with our own eyes. So, let’s help you reach your business goals this year.

Give us a call at +1 (888) 500-2618 or email us at sales@active8pos.com to learn more, or to schedule a demo to see our trampoline park point of sale software in action. We would love to show you what we have to offer.

Resolutions, Goals, and Plans

Though December isn’t even halfway over, it’s most wonderful time of the year. Yes, that’s right. Time to plan out your New Year’s Resolutions. *cheering, crying, etc.*

You may have terrible memories of New Year’s Resolutions (or NYR, if you’re hip), gripping the pencil as you write that you WILL learn Spanish this year, or not being allowed to leave your grandparents’ table until you come up with ten whole resolutions. We’re not here to make you relive those awful memories. But, we do know that making resolutions can help you grow and become the person you want to be. *cue the sentimental music*

Are you ready for 2019 to be YOUR YEAR? These things don’t happen by accident. You’re going to need to make personal and business goals to have the year you want. And before you go putting down that you want to drive a new Porsche by the end of the year, take a step back and think about if that really would make your life better. Maybe it would, but maybe spending more time with your family would, more. (You know, Porsche might make an SUV so you can spend time with your family on a road trip…)

We recommend taking a few days to really hash out your goals. Don’t write them down over an hour and think that you’ve got it all figured out. Really think about what you want to do, and where you want to spend your energy this upcoming year.

Here are some questions that might help you get started:

  • What would make me feel most accomplished this year?

  • What are you naturally good at?

  • How do you want to be remembered?

Not deep or overwhelming at all, right? Take your time and keep in mind that you don’t need to figure out everything right now. Finding the deeper reasons why you do what you do can help you focus on what’s important, and that may change as time goes on.

New Year, New Business Goals

Ah, the last day of November, which means that the shopping panic will surely strike us all right in the heart tomorrow morning. The holidays are truly upon us, and we hope you’re out enjoying yourself instead of stressing about how you missed all the Black Friday sales. Maybe you’re like us and just taking a few extra jumps at the family entertainment center to blow off steam.

Instead of worrying about shopping, take some time to plan out how your 2019 is going to go. And, chances are that you’ve taken the time to understand your market, scope out the competition, and solidify your business plan already. But, does your three- or five-year plan have all the details you want to focus on this year? Take some time to dial in what you will work on this year in order to reach those goals. Keep reading to see some great suggestions and get your brain working.

  • Adopt new equipment or technology

    We promise that we didn’t choose this one just because we make the best trampoline park point of sale software on the market. Hand-to-our-heart, upgrading your technology or equipment can help you get the edge on your competitors. And, the nicer and safer your park looks, the happier customers will be. So, take a look around and see if you need to upgrade foam cubes, dodgeball balls, trampoline springs, tables, or anything else that isn’t doing it for you.

    Of course, you should look at your point of sale software and birthday party booking software. If it’s a hassle to use, isn’t intuitive, or makes your life harder, you’re wasting time on a tool that isn’t cutting it. We believe that tools should be adjusted to the task at hand, and not the other way around. We make your park run smoothly, so you can get back to your other tasks.

  • Reach new target audiences

    If you know there are customers out there that haven’t visited you, this may be the year to find them. Whether you hire a consultant or experiment with social media marketing, finding new customers is a great way to grow your business.

  • Improve employee benefits

    If you’re just starting out, you may not have the ability to give your employees the raise they deserve. But, that doesn’t mean that you can’t give them anything. Providing leadership training can help them boost their resume, and snacks in the break room can help them stay in a people-pleasing mood.

  • Develop your long-term plan

    If you don’t have a five-year plan for your business, it’s time to sit down and get serious. Prevent mistakes by having a clear roadmap for the future, and make sure everyone involved is on the same page. You can include a plan for retaining customers through stellar customer service, boost your PR by being involved in the community, and how to increase revenue.

  • Improve your finances

    Be strict with your expenses, and separate all business expenses from your personal ones (if you haven’t already). Look at expenses that bring your business down and brainstorm ways to improve that area. For example, if you are constantly throwing out food that doesn’t sell, order less, or donate that food to a non-profit. You may even find some tax benefits you overlooked before.

No matter what you do, having a clear framework will help you move toward your goals in 2019. If you want to learn more about our trampoline park pos and how we can help you grow your business in 2019, give us a call at 1 (888) 500-2618 today.
