“Spring is in the air! One of the many benefits of this time of year is the renewed energy that comes along with the sunshine and pleasant temperatures of the spring. Make the most of that energy and motivation by checking things off your company’s to-do list and getting around to all those tasks that you’ve been putting off since the winter. Now is great time of year to focus on reevaluating your business’s strengths and weaknesses before summertime and to create a plan for growing your business. For many people the start of spring also means that it’s time to do some spring cleaning. But who says that dusting off the cobwebs is just for your home?
For me, the beginning of April signals the perfect time to do some business spring cleaning to help ensure things are running smoothly as we approach the summer months. You can read more about my 5 Spring Cleaning Ideas for Your Business below.”

5 Spring Cleaning Ideas
For Your Business
Now that Spring has arrived it is the perfect time to do some spring cleaning to help you run your business more efficiently. Here are Fordham Capital’s 5 Spring Cleaning Ideas for your Business:
- Spruce Up Your Website
Take some time to browse your website. Does it accurately represent your brand? Is it easy to navigate and user friendly? Do you have a mobile version of your site? An outdated website reflects badly upon your company and will drive customers away. Make sprucing up your website a priority as it can mean the difference between making or losing a sale.
- Review Business Expenses
When was the last time you reviewed your business expenses? Sit down and review your company’s utility bills and costs for subscriptions, services or goods you have delivered. Can you cut any expenses or get better pricing elsewhere?
- Organize Your Inbox
You know all those emails that have been piling up and cluttering up your inbox? Now is the time to sort through them. Unsubscribe from any newsletters or lists that you no longer want to be a part of and organize your emails into folders. Clearing out what you don’t need will give you the energy to focus on the emails that need your attention.
- Sort Through Your Inventory
Do you have older, outdated items taking up space in storage closets or warehouses? Look through what you have on hand and to get rid of expired, outdated or damaged goods that you no longer need. You can get ahead of the game by focusing on getting your inventory organized and stocking up on whatever items you need for warmer months.
- Clean Your Physical Office/Store
There is no better time than spring to go through those stacks of paper, to dust off the furniture, clean the windows, and declutter your desk or shelves. Your storefront or office is the face of your business, so you always want to put your company’s best foot forward. You could always spruce up the space with new window treatments, a fresh coat of paint, or by simply rearranging furniture or displays.
