If you are truly committed to having a better year next year then you did this year, then you can’t depend on ‘maybe’.
Listen to my Podcast to find out why…
The truth is that there are many answers to this question, but I am going to give you my opinion regarding the answer to this very powerful question.
Here it is my thought – “Work harder on yourself than you do on your job?” How much time to do you think small business owners spend working on improving themselves? The answer is quite definitely very little and yet most small business owners are not successful. In fact, most are struggling to survive.
So, if you are serious about growing your business you need to learn more about the very thing that is going to grow your business. Your sales and marketing skills and knowledge.
Wouldn’t it be great to have a sales and marketing expert advisor working with you over a 12month period with a focus on your business? Interested, then click here.
Steve’s latest Podcast featuring Jackie Jarvis. Jackie talks about the mistakes that she sees so many small business owners make in selling and provides listeners with the keys to the system that she calls ‘Stress-Free Selling’. Have a listen:
Just a bit of feedback on the 6 week Webinar course of yours I attended. It was fantastic and a real game changer for me. It is a refreshing change to meet someone that actually delivers on what they promise. I can without reservation confirm that the £60 was the most cost-effective ROI that our company has ever spent.
I have already implemented all of your suggested actions to great effect.Thank you also for the updates and free gifts, these really do work! Thank you particularly for your book (hard copy) Linkedin Made Easy 2.0, it is excellent and a very good reference.
Anyway thanks once again for your invaluable help and advise and I look forward to talking to you again in the near future.

How are your sales and marketing results working out so far? That is a question I asked 500 businesses who attended one of my talks recently and the overwhelming feeling was – not great! Not enough leads, poor conversion rates. Wasting money on marketing that is not working. These were just some of the comments that I received.
The truth is that the results you get in sales and marketing, profit and growth are based on two things:
Take LinkedIn as an example. Most business owners are on LinkedIn and most believe it to be a great opportunity to market themselves. However, 99.9% of small business owners I speak to have never been trained in how to use it and even if they had, if that training was more than 6 months ago, they need up to date that training, because LinkedIn has changed so, must in the past six months.
Most small business owners are responsible for sales and again when I speak to business owners and ask them:
Number one – Burning Desire
The most successful people have a burning desire to succeed
Number two – Specialised knowledge
Individuals who want to have success in marketing, in business and in making money need to have specialised knowledge
Number three – Decisiveness
Individuals who are the most successful in the world are decisive
Number four – Goal orientated
The most successful people in the world are goal orientated. A goal unwritten is only a wish
Number five – The mastermind group
The 500 most successful people had one common characteristic. Belonging to a mastermind group.
Listen to my latest Podcast featuring my good friend Michael Brook. Michael and I discuss – how to create and sell online information products. In other words how you leverage your time and turn it into earning money whilst you sleep.
In other words – Are your sales and marketing efforts producing a positive, or a negative result for you and your business.
And importantly, how could you improve your sales and marketing performance?
