November 2018 Newsletter

To the attendees of one of the biggest, annual networking events in Sydney, a questionaire was sent out to see what topics and issues they would like to have addressed either at this networking event or at other workshops etc.

Over 70% of the respondents detailed that they struggled with their marketing and would like more information on that business topic.

Plus, research from the Peter Faber School of Business & Law at the Australian Catholic University has shown that businesses struggle with :

  • Marketing
  • Personal Selling
  • Getting the sale across the line

So getting more clients and understanding what needs to be done when going through the business development process to realise the sale is a challenge for many businesses in todays challenging world.

These are the business building activities that will help grow a business – marketing, having a digital presence, sales and mindset. The challenges faced by businesses with implementing these business activities are real.

The second important activity is to have your marketing and sales systematised to make these activities more efficient. This will assist with getting sales faster.

If you have questions, examples or comments, then please let us know. Our programs are designed to help Service Professionals to get more clients, we are here to assist and we encourage you to comment.
