Businesses over-complicate what they do!
Business Strategy & Planning ARE your most important business tools.

Regardless whether you are a NEW or an EXISTING business, if you want to successfully GROW YOUR BUSINESS, then pause your existing marketing and sales campaigns and use the following 12-Business Growth Essentials to kick-start your new growth plan.
12-Business Growth Essentials
(1) Develop your Brand Storyboard:
When it comes to talking about your business, owner-operators are often so close to their products and services that their “what we do” spiel comes across confusing, and with too many mixed messages.
Remember, the things you say, are not always what your customers hear!
Developing a brand Brand Storyboard helps you to define what you do and the value you provide customers.
By clarifying your message, naturally your elevator pitch, website content, and marketing collateral begin to work much more effectively.

(2) Build a Brand Marketing Plan:
Customers demand TRUST and INTEGRITY from businesses brands. No matter how much money you spend marketing a product, if they don’t trust you, they don’t buy from you. Build your Brand Strategy around your niche market.
Tailor your marketing message, education process, and brand to your Unique Selling Proposition (USP).

(3) Create a Killer Sales Plan:
If you don't have a clear focus on who your customer is, what their problems are, and what value you provide them...you will be defeated before you start.
Create a 'Killer Sales Plan' which defines what you need to sell, to who, and how! This will make your marketing so much clearer, targeted, and will produce extraordinary results.

(4) Develop your Sales Team and Sales Process:
Its important that you surround yourself with the RIGHT sales team from the start - do not settle for less. Your sales team should consist of great people, great training, and be supported by a great process.

Do you have an email marketing system in place?
Do you have a campaign plan in place for the next 12-months?
Are your prospect and customer details stored in a spreadsheet rather than a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tool.
Do you have business accounts set-up for social media pages such as Facebook and Google AdWords / Analytics?
