Are you rubbish at sales and marketing?

Let’s face it most small business marketing is not producing results.  Marketing often does not work and ends up as a cost and not an investment. The truth is that 95% of small business owners did not start their business because they were good at sales and marketing.  They started it because they were good at:

  • Landscape gardening
  • Accountancy
  • Software development
  • Training
  • Repairing cars
  • Etc.

In other words, business owners have good operational skills, but so often lacks the three skills that can lead to the demise of a business and they are sales skills, marketing skills, and financial skills.  These skills are often the skills that the owner of the business is not good at, or does not like doing or both!

However, these are also the skills that business owners need to develop if they are serious about growing their businesses.  Watch this video to get a better understanding of the skills you need to develop and why you need to develop these skills.

Why is Facebook for business?

Why you should think again about Facebook for Business?

Many of the business owners that I speak to tell me that they understand how powerful LinkedIn is, but they do not really think that Facebook is any good for business.  They often say that because it’s a social platform, but I have to tell you that now is the time to think again.

There are millions of businesses out there who are making millions upon millions of pounds using Facebook and specifically not just using the site, Facebook, as a social media platform, but rather using the Facebook advertising platform.

To learn why you should be using Facebook and what you could do, watch this video and take the first step in creating an abundance of leads for little cost using Facebook as a marketing platform.

Are you still paying DUMB TAX?

What is DUMB TAX?

DUMB TAX is the tax or the money you pay for being DUMB and before you think I am being rude, I want to tell you that in the past I have paid more than my fair share of DUMB TAX.

When I say dumb, what I am really talking about is not a tax, but rather it is the money you have wasted on:

  • The software that you don’t use, or use badly
  • The sales team you invest in every month who are not performing anywhere near their true potential
  • The website you invested in that is not creating any leads
  • The marketing that you are doing that is not working, or that you don’t know if it is working or not

That is the sort of DUMB TAX that it am talking about.

So if you are sick of it and you want to stop paying DUMB TAX, then take the first step and watch the video below. When you’re done watching take step 2 and call me to book a no obligation, no cost RESULTS Meeting on 01256 242 272 NOW!

Numbers are the currency of business

There’s an old saying that the numbers are the currency of business

If that is true, then the questionnaire is which numbers or which numbers are the most important numbers to know?

Clearly, there are financial numbers that most business owners know. Numbers like the income and their turnover.

Then, there are the operational numbers like the number of satisfied customers, the time it takes to make something, or the number of hours the business owner works in a week.

Then, there are the sales and marketing numbers. These are the numbers really affect the growth of your business. Numbers like the number of enquiries that you get and where those enquiries come from. Numbers, like the number of people that visit your website and the number of contacts that you’ve got on LinkedIn. All these numbers are going to affect your business not necessarily today, but one day.

So, the question is – what are the two groups of numbers that you must know in order to grow your business?

In this podcast, I reveal those numbers and give you some ideas regarding the types of numbers you should be measuring and how to use these numbers as ‘key performance indicators’ in your business.

So, go ahead and have a listen and if you need more help from me to improve your numbers then simply call (01256) 242272 and I’ll be glad to hear from you. Listen to “Raise your Game” on Spreaker.
