So many business owners I come into contact with seem to have the same issue.
They have grown their business to a certain level, they know they are capable of more but they seem to hit brick walls when it comes to cracking that cieling.
We just completed some research on the Small business owners of Australia and the findings were very interesting.
Here are some of the findings:
- Only 2% of businesses reach $2,000,000.00 in turnover
- Only 39% are profitable
- Self employed people work nearly one extra day a week compared to employees
- Only around 10% of Businesses are actually saleable
- 52% of small Business still do not have a social media presence
- Only 1 in 10 businesses use key performance indicators and monitor them closely
- And 80% of them do not use pay per click advertising
There are Three Universal Business Principles that you must follow to Grow Your Business!
1.Set Clear Goals – Targets
I know many of you have heard this before. Set Goals, have an action plan. Well before you roll your eyes, and think, not this again. ARE YOU DOING IT?
Have you told your subconscious mind what you want in your business, and your life? If not, how is it going to get it for you? If you commit to writing down your goals every day for the next 30 days, you will be amazed at the improvements that start to occur in your life.
I implore you to not just wake up and hope for the phone to ring. DECIDE how many times you want it to ring each day and then create a simple marketing plan to make it happen.
DECIDE what your turnover and profit will be for the month BEFORE the month begins and create a sales system to make it happen. Even if you fall short, the very at of making a plan and working towards it will help you improve your profits.
2.Create an Effective Online Marketing Strategy
Now I know you know you need an effective online presence.
The real question is why don’t you have one yet!
And we both know that the answer is because it seems complicated you have not had the time to address this important area of your business.
Well let’s quickly reframe this idea shall we?
Here is a simple plan to create an effective online campaign for your business
Step 1 . Get very clear on the Outcomes you want from your Online Marketing System
Step 2. Find the right people with proven skills to deliver them (look for testimonials and references)
Step 3. Have them guarantee the results that you will achieve if you use their services.
Step 4. Monitor their results closely and ensure that they meet your Key Performance Indicators
Its not that hard now if you follow this system is it?
The only thing preventing you from having an effective online marketing strategy right now is you making the time to implement this system.
SO GET TO IT
After sales and marketing, SYSTEMS are the real secret to growing a Business.
Think about the number of times you have had the same problem re-occur.
How about the times you have employed the EMPLOYEE from hell
And how about the time that you perhaps ran a successful marketing campaign and then, over time , never saw that campaign again becuase you tried something new and forgot all about was already proven to work.
We all know that putting systems into your business will make you more efficient and will save you lots of time and effort.
