In the July 2019 Snapshot Survey, we asked contractors about their short-term business goals. Here's one survey question and its results from the summary report, which is now available in its entirety to EGIA members.
Question: Do you have short-term business goals?
Whether you are looking to expand to a new market, add a vertical, or acquire new leads, short-term business goals can help you sustain momentum and achieve success over the long term. 88% of contractors that responded to our survey actively set short-term business goals, whereas 12% do not. Without setting goals and putting them into writing, it may be difficult to track, evaluate, and optimize your business operations. EGIA has created vast resources to help you set and reach goals – Visit the EGIA Best Practices Library to access these valuable tools.
Here's what Ellen Rohr, The Business Makeover Expert®, has to say:
“Short-term goals set more specific milestones that we can achieve as we pursue our long-term mission. They need to be specific, they need to have a time frame, and must support your big-picture objectives.”
