Stepping Stones To Better Business -
'practical answers for enthusiastic owners'
Boost Your Business To Be All It Can Be!
Three real-life examples show what's possible:
- prices raised by 37.5% (without worrying customers) - Lisle Combe, St Lawrence
- advertising costs cut by 87% (but not scaring suppliers) - Bate Brand, Ryde
- more sales: 10 times more (with a fixed marketing budget) - Biffa, Newport
As a result, they employed more staff, put out more marketing, built more products, moved upmarket... and enjoy being in business more!
Your customers spending more
Your suppliers helping you more
Your staff getting more productive
Your competitors fading out...
Few Business Owners get training in how to run a business before they start.
Most people get into business and aim to learn on the job.
(Even Richard Branson did it that way!)
But all too soon they are totally immersed in running the business.
So taking time to research methods of improving it can seem too far out of reach.
What do you want to achieve?
Higher prices, sooner price rises, better acceptance...
Less complaints, less returns, less stress, less expense, less tax...
More customers, more enquiries, more sales, more word-of-mouth, more spend, more referrals, more recommendations, more re-orders, more fans, more loyalty, more productivity, more revenue, more time, more ideas, more fun, more likes, more profits...
