We’re just two issues into the year, but already we’re turning the spotlight up on growth. Why? Because growth is what business is all about. Without growth, a business is on a highway to nowhere, stuck in a daily grind in which its owners can see no way forward.
Growth is a big deal for business owners, which is why it is covered so often within the pages of this magazine and on our digital platforms.
In preparation for this month’s Growing your Business feature, I typed the words ‘Growing your business’ into the search box of the NZBusiness editorial database covering the past 15 years.
It produced no less than 1053 editorial items – proof that we regularly visit the subject of business growth, because growth is such an essential requirement for a healthy business.
This month’s issue brings you more inspiring Kiwi businesses that are demonstrating strong growth, including our lead story on Overdose.Digital – a digital commerce agency that in just two years has gone from start-up to revenues of $8 million. That is staggering growth by anyone’s measure, and it’s all thanks to the company’s rather unique business model that’s being applied around the world.
Our feature story on business growth includes some useful strategy tips from the head of growth at The Icehouse, Liz Wotherspoon, as well as some great advice on bootstrapping from SnapComms co-founder and chair Sarah Perry, and a shining example of a deliberate and disciplined growth strategy as outlined by Company-X founder David Hallett.
Of course, while some of our articles this month aren’t specifically on the subject of business growth, pretty much all of them cover subjects that have an associated impact on growth – I’m talking business planning, mentoring, marketing, website management and export markets, to name just a few.
So if your New Year’s resolution was to make a serious attempt to get your business out of a rut in 2019, we trust that you’ll find some added incentive within the pages of this magazine.
Have a productive, growth-fuelled March!
