We'll cover topics such as finances, hiring and firing employees, and more. So whether you're just starting out or you're looking for ways to improve your business, read on for helpful tips!
Show me the money
One of the most important aspects of scaling a digital studio is finances. When you're first starting out, it's easy to get caught up in the excitement of projects and overlook the importance of financial planning. But if you want to scale your business successfully, it's crucial that you take the time to develop a strong financial foundation. This means creating a budget, tracking your expenses, and setting aside money for taxes and unexpected costs. It also means being mindful of how you're pricing your services. Make sure you're not undercharging or overcharging for the work you do. If you're not sure where to start, I recommend reviewing our article on driving value as an independent studio owner that covers how to price your services based on the value you're delivering instead of the time you're spending.
Build the Right Team
Another important aspect of scaling a digital studio is hiring and firing employees. As your business grows, you'll need to add new team members to keep up with demand. But it's important to remember that not every hire will be a good fit. Sometimes you'll have to let someone go, even if it's difficult. When scaling your business, it's important to be thoughtful about who you hire. Make sure you're taking the time to find the right person for the job, and don't be afraid to let someone go if they're not a good fit.
These are just a few of the important aspects of scaling a digital studio. If you're looking to grow your business, it's important to be mindful of all aspects of your operation. By taking the time to develop a strong financial foundation and build a great team, you'll be well on your way to success!
