How To Refresh Your Business
If your business is slowing down and sales have fallen then it is time to review and refresh your approach.
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Are you focused on your customers? Do you really understand what they want and what they will want in the future? When will they want it, where and what they expect from the product or service you are delivering?
- Are you excellent at what you do? Being one of a crowd of potential suppliers is a poor place to be – mediocrity is just as bad as poor performance. Customers choose the best person to meet their needs and never someone who is just one of a crowd.
- Have I made my product or service perform better or have I just left things as they are? Being different from your competition is essential for business success. Always innovate – are there better components or raw materials that you can use to offer something different? Can you modify what you already deliver to draw in different customers? If you cannot do this, your competitors will!
- Do you provide solutions to your customer’s problems, or do you just sell a product or service? Successful businesses solve problems for their customers, so find out where their pain is and help them solve this with your help.
Apply all the above carefully and systematically: if this means asking difficult questions and receiving difficult questions then that is a very good thing!
