Timing Is Everything!
Quick service means happy customers and increased profits. Speed up your profits by offering your service FAST! Example: a web page design firm offers to create and place a 6-Page Web Site on-line in 6 hours. A car detailing company offers to completely clean your car in 96 minutes. You get the picture. Speed it up if your business is slow.
Watch That Cycle!
Selling products? How long do they last? Every product has a lifecycle. Make sure you know what it is and be prepared to offer your customers timely replacements. Consistently contact them before the product lifecycle ends. Watch your sales soar.
Refer Your Customers to Each Other
To grow your small business, it's important to consistently ask your existing customers for referrals. But don't forget to send your own customers to each other. One of the best ways to keep your name in front of your clients is to send them referrals who say "(Your name here) suggested I call."
"Convenience" Leads to More Business
According to a government survey, consumers will continue to buy products and services that are convenient and easy to use. (Example: the fast-food market is expected to double its revenues by the year 2000.) Most folks don't want to know how a product works - they just want to be able to use it when it's convenient for them. Be sure to include a "convenience" message in your marketing materials.
