From Meh to Yeah—The Small Business Digital Makeover

Welcome folks! We are back again with another exciting series, this time on digitizing small to medium businesses.

Let’s start with a burning question: Are you a small business struggling to level up? If yes, then hold on tight as we are about to help you turn your business from ‘Meh’ to ‘Yeah’ through a small business digital makeover.

The world is going digital, and small businesses are finding it difficult to keep up with the evolving business landscape. Now is the time for small businesses to embrace digital transformation to avoid getting overshadowed in the competitive market!

When it comes to the digital transformation journey, small business owners often find themselves pulled in many directions and are unsure of where to begin. Here are the three things to start from:

  1. Business Model Transformation
  2. Digital Transformation
  3. Operating Model Transformation

Business Model transformation is redesigning fundamental ways a business creates, delivers, and captures value. Or simply put, it’s about how you make money and compete within the market. 

Digital transformation is integrating technology into your business, which significantly changes how the business operates and delivers value to its clients.

Transforming your business model will require a digital transformation since the newly defined revenue streams, market approaches, and operational strategies are inherently dependent on leveraging digital approaches. Digital transformation isn’t just about adopting technology but reshaping processes and customer experience and even transforming the organizational culture (mindset) to thrive in the digital world.

 

Operational Transformation refers to aligning internal systems, structures, and people with strategic objectives. This includes making substantial changes to the core operating frameworks, streamlining workflows, integrating new technologies, and redefining internal roles and responsibilities.

This type of transformation is all about people and requires teams to adopt new ways of working.

LETS FACE IT: it’s impossible to take on digital or business model transformation without addressing operational transformation. In other words, you need to bring your people on board to really digitize your business.

Now, the question is, what are the CORE components that require digital transformations?

Well, to answer that, there could be many, But here are three things that stand out:

  1. Business Model
  2. Business Operations
  3. Customer Experience

Business Model

When diving into a complete digital transformation journey and devising a strategy, your business model should be the centre stage. Your processes and business model should have a similar flow, and you need to take your business operations online for a well-integrated approach.

Remember, the goal is not only to generate more money but to make sure your work gets easier and you build a better relationship with your customers!
