WANT TO IMPROVE CASH FLOW IN YOUR BUSINESS?

It might be one of the best things in the world to see your company succeeding. Your sales are high, you’re generating revenue, and your profits are on a steady incline. You have cash flow, which is more than what most businesses can say. But this is not the time to relax. Growing companies often lose out on cash flow, because they think they’re in the clear. They don’t see it coming, and it costs them dearly.

Healthy cash flow is a sign your company is running efficiently. It inspires confidence in your customers, and might even bring in more in the process. Always work to improve cashflow. Here are some tips that we think might help you out. 

Improve Your Inventory

It is crucial that you regularly check your inventory to make sure you know what products you are selling. Look for missing items. In-theft is a harmful problem–it will require your immediate attention. In the process, also notice all the products that don’t sell. Those products are causing you to lose out on cash flow. Do a cost-benefit analysis. If they’re not worth it, get rid them immediately. If you think they might still have potential, brainstorm other ways to boost its sales. 

Make Friends with Your Suppliers 

All businesses want to pay their suppliers less so that they can make a profit with their sales. But most people are confused or scared about how to approach them or ask for a discount. Use this age-old tactic: Become friends with them. If you make an effort to forge a connection with your suppliers, you might be better for it. Learn what they want, and give them that for something in return. 

Turn every proposition into a mutually beneficial one and watch your cash flow increase. 

Evaluate Your Customers 

There are good customers, and there are bad customers. Bad customers don’t pay. They delay payments until you’re calling them every day for what they owe you. They might be negotiating in bad faith. They might irk potential customers. Evaluate your relationship with them. Is their business worth it? Is it bringing in substantial cash flow to your company? Will your business grow for the better without them dragging you down? If you still want to keep your relationship with them, renegotiate the terms of your contract. Always, always remember to run a credit check on your customers. You want to weed out those bad seeds as quickly as possible. 

Increase Pricing

It is always daunting to increase the price of your product or service. There are so many questions that swirl around in your head. What if I’m making it too high? What if my customers leave? What if they go looking somewhere else? What if my product is not worth the hike? What if, what if, what if. But it is alright to experiment with the pricing of your product a little bit. You need to understand what works and what doesn’t by yourself. We recommend you find a creative way to do it, so you are as secure as possible. 

Healthy cash flow is a sign your company is running efficiently. It inspires confidence in your customers, and might even bring in more in the process. Review these four tips regularly, and assess whether you want to implement them or not. Always do what is best for your business.
