Profitable

Business Model

A business model  should tell the story of how your entire business works. The story should focus on three core questions: Who is your client? What does your client value? How do you deliver that value at the right cost?
All these questions add up to creating a profitable business model. If you nail these questions, you are well on your way. We set aside some time to formally write a full-fledged business model. It is the first and most important of all business milestones you must reach. Your business model may evolve over time, but you will want to start with a clear plan for success.

Hire and Train

a Solid Team

Starting off as a one-person operation is great. However, except for a few lucky business models, it will only get you so far. You will need to hire and train a team. This is where you will grow your business by leaps and bounds.
We will teach you how to put in the time to create a stellar employee training program before you even hire your first employee or improve what you have in place now. Instead of stumbling through it, and possibly wasting your time, energy, and money with the wrong people, this will enable you to set up employees for success. You can also test the waters by hiring a virtual assistant or a contractor. They can take a lot off your plate without being a formal team member. A virtual assistant can help you establish that highly sought-after work-life balance that all entrepreneurs need.

First

Repeat Client

Your next business milestone involves that sweet, sweet exchange of currency. Create repeat customers will give you confidence in your business and the motivation you will need to keep going. The key word here is “repeat.” You may earn that first repeat client through personal recommendations, an existing contact or cold calling. Landing your second repeat client will take understanding exactly who they are and where they spend their time—both online and off. We will teach you how to find your customers using Social Media and how to calculate the Customer Lifetime Value (CLV).

Realistic, Scalable

Marketing Strategy

Marketing is the lifeblood of your business. Businesses owners who wait for clients to call are destined to fail. Smart marketing can actively bring in new business. There was a time when businesses would hire a marketing firm to handle everything. While many still do this—and you can if you have the budget—it will benefit most entrepreneurs to tackle as much of the marketing as they can and outsource once they know what works. As an entrepreneur, taking an active role in your marketing campaign will strengthen two key “talents”: delegation and determination. You will learn the new tools that make it all possible and commit to regularly putting in time to market your business.

Reach a Significant

Number of Sales

Sales in your business should be planned. If you have developed a profitable business model, created a scalable marketing strategy, and found the perfect team, you’re on pace for lasting success. The final business milestone to reach is a significant number of sales.
Set a specific goal for sales. Without a goal, the business will stagnate. Having a goal will help you to continue moving toward your target growth.
