Where is your business now?
A short, sharp but thorough look at your business today to identify the areas that can be developed to boost your sales and profits.
You need a strong foundation to establish what changes you need to make for your business to succeed, and the best foundation is to have a clear understanding of what is going on today.
What are you selling to who and how?
Be clear about exactly what it is you’re selling, who you’re selling it to and how and then establish how you can be different and better than your competitors in the minds of your customers.
This is going to sound crazy, but I’d suggest the vast amount of businesses just don’t have the clarity they need to ensure success.
Getting to the right pricing for your products or services is critical. Too expensive? You frighten customers away. Too cheap? You’re leaving money on the table and damaging your profits.
This section is all about helping you get to the right pricing models and amounts to maximise your sales and profits.
One of the biggest factors in the business success is to have a laser-like focus on what you’re doing. You achieve that by having simple, smart, short term objectives.
