There are a few things you must do to have a successful business. Below I’ve listed the top ten:
You must be able to provide a quality product/service which people want and need.
2. Customer Loyalty/Service
You must help your customers feel that they can trust you. Be honest and trustworthy. Offer money back guarantees and stick to your policies. Treat your customers like gold.
3. Offer something for free once in awhile Your customers don’t really care how great your company is or how wonderful you are for that matter. Their only concern is how your product can help them! How will it meet their needs; improve their lives; make them happier; etc. Offer something of value and they will buy what you’re selling.
You must own and control your products/services. Offer something that only YOU can provide. Have exclusive control over at least one of your products/services. It should be something that people cannot find anywhere else and wanted by a lot of people.
5. Make Money to Spend Money
You must spend money on advertising and promotions. Although there are many free methods to work within your budget, you will still need to spend some money in order to make money in order to harvest your business.
6. Put back in what you harvest
You must continue to take a portion of your profits and re-invest that money back into your business. Use that money to purchase more ads, brochures, catalogs, t-shirts, flyers, etc. Grow and multiply that harvest.
7. Put others first
Satisfy the needs of others. Help them achieve their dreams. Show your expertise and in the process others will follow your lead.
8. Seek the Help of Others
Use services to help reach a wider audience, such as dealers, distributors, Internet, customers and networking.
9.Other Successful Business Owners
Always seek the advise of other successful people. Find someone who is making the kind of money that you want to make. Do exactly what they are doing, why re-invent the wheel?
10. Get Personal
Know your customers by name. Thank your customers and acknowledge them.
