Not all customers are created equal

N

After being in the sales “business” for almost over 20+ years now, I have come across thousands and thousands of customers, if not millions via the companies I have worked for in the UK and Scandinavia. The thing is that, some customers are bound to click right away with you, some take time, while others just “waste” your time. Yes, I said it, the word that should never be...

Be consistent to survive in business

B

I come across different types of people in business. Some of them keep going till they make it, and some go for a short span of time in the beginning and then they surround themselves in a very comfortable environment, which locks them down and hides them from the world. Don’t let that happen to you. In order to stay in the game, you have to keep on playing. You have to play well, and you...

Sell your services and products in advance

S

The biggest mistake an entrepreneur makes is when they think things will remain the same when it comes to sales. If they are making a few hundred thousand dollars in one month, it’s very easy to imagine it being the same every month, but that’s just not the case. You have to be able to book and take advance orders to remain in the game. Here is how:- If you have digital services, plan...

Trust your gut feeling

T

We are often in a situation where we have nothing else to rely on than our own gut feeling. It could be at the time when you are thinking of adding a new product in your collection to introducing a service that you think will blow the competition away. I think no matter what your situation is, your gut instinct will definitely have to be playing a role as well. I try to learn from my mistakes...

How do I price my products / service?

H

This is that one thing that I used a lot of time on and I am sure everyone who has a service or a product goes through the tough moments of pricing. What to price and what not to price. How will the customer feel if they see the rate on this certain product, and so on. It’s not an easy thing, and it shouldn’t be easy either. Shall one go 100% up in profit? It depends on the type of...

Have your clients love you

H

There are lots of things you can do to get your customers or clients to love buying your services or products. One way to make this “relationship” work is to give a service that’s way beyond their expectations. For example, show them that you respect them because they chose your business over someone else’s, and that you will do everything possible to keep giving them the...

Taking a loan for your business

T

The most popular approach to doing business is that you would talk to your bank and they would give you a fat cheque with an amount that will make you rich. But does that help? Well, you might make it, and you might fail. And in the case of failure, you need to remember that the bank is not your friend. They don’t care if you succeed or not. The only thing they want back is their money, and...

Non-paying customers

N

The biggest concern of any businessman is to have a healthy cash flow. If their is no cash coming in , the business might run on borrowed money from your family and friends, but it won’t last long. Dealing with non-paying customers is a pain in the neck. I have had quite a few of those, but at the end of the day that’s just how they are. But that doesn’t mean you need to put up...
