Business problems – I don’t suppose any of these problems rings a bell…

All businesses have problems and I have spent over 25 years working with businesses to help them solve their sales and marketing problems. Here are some of the biggest problems you might be going through…

Any of these ring a bell?

10. You don’t win any business from your website because you simply don’t get enough traffic

9. The people who do visit your site don’t enquire (your site does not convert visits into sales)

8. You don’t have a big enough database. Your target market contains 100,000 people and you have 1,000 on your email list and 300 connects on LinkedIn

7. You don’t have a system for winning referral business

6. Your brand and positioning in your market is not consistent

5. You are really poor at following up on leads quickly and effectively

4. You suffer from obscurity and no one knows how great you are at what you do

3. You don’t really find the time to market your business consistently well and so you rely on referrals which gives you enough leads to survive (just)

2. You don’t really understand moderns digital marketing methods and so you are losing out

1. You are not creating enough leads, nor are you converting enough leads in to business and so you are not able to achieve your goals and to live the life of your dreams!

I want to help you solve all of these issues and more.

Sales tips – The 3 outcomes of every sales meeting

There are three outcomes from every sales meeting and they are:

  1. The prospect says yes
  2. The prospect says no
  3. The prospect makes an excuse for not making a decision

In this Podcast I discuss how you can reduce, or eliminate the number of times that people make an excuse like – “I want to think about it”, I need to speak to _______”, or I am not sure”.  In truth what they are really saying is – I don’t want to say no and so you spend the next three weeks trying to speak to them again and they won’t take your calls and they don’t return your emails.

Watch this video and learn how to avoid the fatal NO.3.

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!
