How to Improve the Bottom Line for Your Small Business [Step-by-Step Guide]

Have you been trying to find new ways to help expand the bottom line for your small business without success? As a small business owner, there’s no doubt that you are always thinking about how to increase your earnings and expand your company’s growth.

You’ve undoubtedly had to find new ways to innovate your business to mold to the change in consumer behaviors. There are many ways in which focusing on your bottom line can do just that. Whether it’s the accounting services for small businesses that you use or the way your company’s money is managed, even small adjustments in the practices and approaches you are taking can alter your bottom line.

A better bottom line leads to your business growing in many ways; from the ability to build up cash reserves to having the financing to expand your operations in other markets, and much more. Today, we want to look at some ways you can do now to start improving the bottom line of your small business.

1. Cut Expenses

Using things like cloud accounting software for your small business can help explicitly lay out where unnecessary expenses are cutting into your profit margins. This includes anything from overpriced and underused office space, advertising that isn’t returning an ROI that’s worth it, bad inventory, to needless purchases. Whatever the case may be, looking closely at an analysis of your businesses expenses can help you discover where to cut your expenses and put those cuts into your bottom line.

2. Price Adjustments

When was the last time that you did an audit of your product pricing? Have you considered that a way to improve your bottom line is to examine closely what you’re charging for your products? As a small business owner, you want to be paid for your expertise and the value of your products, but sometimes we can price ourselves out of the market even when we have the best product. The direct opposite is also true for your products, you could be trying to undercut competitors, but in doing so aren’t being fair to your business. Just as self-value can lead to overpricing your products, under valuing yourself and your products can lead to your bottom line crashing. Working with an accounting services company that can dive into all the facets of your customers purchase history, cost to make your products, and your profit and loss margins can make price adjustments easier to navigate.

3. End Bad Inventory

Some small business owners will stick with a product longer than they should and end up spending money that could be used for development of new products and company expansion. Is there a product you believed in and thought was a winner but has been sitting on your shelves collecting dust? It’s time that you end the production of this bad inventory and fire sale off what you have left. Bad inventory eats heavily into your small business’ bottom line. Learning to fail quickly with a product that doesn’t sell allows your earnings not to be impacted, thus making it harder for your company to recover. Most cloud accounting software on the market can help you determine which products are really taking off, and which should be removed from your inventory. Even if something doesn’t work now, it might later. So, you can always bring it back when the need presents itself. Just don’t hold on so long that you’re cutting into the expansion of new products and your business’ ability to afford them.

4. Accounting Services

Smart small business owners are constantly aware of the state of their company, including what products are working, which expenses are necessary, and the overall health of their bottom line. Ones that have a good grasp on these things typically are working with either great cloud accounting software or have hired an accounting services firm to guide them through the challenges of managing their business’ bottom line.

Working with an accounting services for small business firm frees up more time for you to keep your focus where it matters most; on developing new products, promotion of your business, and creating growth. Innovation is key to the success of any business, and hiring an accounting services firm such as our team here at Numetrica can make the difference between a healthy bottom line or one that you’re barely getting by on.
