How to grow your business in 2021… and Beyond!


This year has been hard for everyone — families, teachers, big corporations, and small businesses. The impacts of the pandemic are felt across the board, and small business owners have been especially agile and resilient. From adopting new business strategies to finding new ways to sell products and services, small business owners have found new ways to adapt.

As we end a tumultuous year, business owners are met with a new challenge: planning for 2021. It’s time to consider ways to grow your business, not just keep it above water. Growing your business during these challenging times is tough, but it is possible… and Beyond is here to help you every step of the way. Ready to dig in and grow your small business in 2021? Let’s get started.

Take Your Business Online with an Online Storefront

With the cold months ahead and the potential for more in-person closures and limited capacity guidelines, your business simply must be online. Even though you have a social media presence and a website, you may not be ready to really grow in 2021. If you don’t have an online storefront, you need one. We know that creating a website and accepting payments online can be costly and complicated, which is why developed our own online storefront to help get you there faster, at an affordable price. We make it fast and easy to open an e-commerce store with or without an existing website. With brand customization, easy online store management, and worry-free security, this is the easiest and safest way to help your business start growing its profits online.

Prepare for Whatever Might Come

If 2020 has taught small business owners anything, it’s that no matter how well you budget, plan, and prepare, you can never really be sure what will come. As we look to 2021, small business owners should be prepared for business interruptions. The new year might not be the best time for costly renovations or opening new locations, but your business still might need a little help with cash flow. Just because you aren’t opening that second location, doesn’t mean your oven won’t break or other unforeseen difficulties won’t arise. Finding a lending partner you trust, one that can get your business some capital fast, should be part of your 2021 business planning. More than 75 percent of small business loan applicants are denied by large banks, so be prepared by finding a partner like Beyond before an issue arises.
