Selling/Buying » RAW BUSINESS TIPS by: Osaroju(m) .:. Sat, 22 May, 2021 - 08:56:36:pm GMT
People want to look like they're making it”...instead of actually doing the little hustle that enables them to raise money to get to where they want to be.....and they stay poor because they are afraid of being judged for that being their hustle...That's why everyone has CEO of this and that on their profile..when they've actually built Zero businesses.

Aim to get testimonials and case studies from every client you onboard and satisfy on how your product or solution helped them. This will be very helpful to win new clients, to create marketing and sales collateral, and to refine your value proposition.

The products and services that you sell are a reflection of your business. Make sure that you and your team always deliver quality work that you take pride in. This is rare, and as a result, customers will reward your company with referrals and more business.

business is all about solving problems at a profit. You have to love whatever your business is about to be great at it. Most times people don't devote enough time and energy to running and building their businesses into a successful enterprise, so it's really important that you truly deeply enjoy what you do, whether you are into physical product or services.

Initially you may not be in it for the money as the returns you expect may take some time to come. How long can you run it without money? this is a question you must sincerely answer. Research has shown that most times it takes a long time before a new business actually makes any profits. So you must prepare for this phase. Being employed while you're starting a business means money in your pocket while you're going through the start-up process.

You need a support system while you're starting a business. Build a system especially around your area of weakness. Don't wait until you've officially started your business to build your system especially in the area of marketing and others, because your business can't survive without them. Do the networking. Make the contacts. Sell or even give away your products or services. You can't start marketing too soon.

Build a business blueprint that you can always fall back to when need be because, when you're running a business this helps you avoid sinking your time and money into starting a business that will not succeed

On the other hand, just because you're starting a business, doesn't mean you have to be an expert on everything. If you're not an accountant or bookkeeper, hire one. If you need to write up a contract, and you're not a lawyer, hire one. You will waste more time and possibly money, in the long run, trying to do things yourself that you are not qualified to do will do more harm to your business than good.

True that when one does his business well and diligently, people will surely refer you. That's where skill, expertise, wisdom is very key to being a step above others. Even if one does a cheap work, how the cheap work is done will tell if they will refer you.

But the other issue about this whole thing is that sometimes it requires Grace as some will say it is luck. I don't believe in luck but grace. I have people who are so good in what they do but only few patronise the person not because the person lack in any area or that the work is not good but just not selling as should be. Though that is why they call it entrepreneur which means a man who take calculated risk in a business to achieve set goals. So the risk is rested on Grace or to those who don't believe in grace, they can say luck.

@ogiejoe:
I agree with what you said 100%. This morning I was listening to pastor's message and he said customers are spirit. In fact all of us are spirit. He gave example of a pastor that opened a church in a certain place and for ten years it was only him and few people in the church, the church did not grow. Now it wasn't because people were very few in that particular place. No! Because there happened to be a football room not far from the church, anytime there is match, you be shocked at the troop of people that will go into that small football room.
The man got tired and he started fasting, to cut the long story short, things changed for the better than one day he was talking to one of the new converts, he asked why he has never come to the church seeing he lives close to the church, the guy said anytime he passes the church, he wasn't seeing it as a reasonable and good church meaning his eyes were just blind to see the beautiful house of God and its the same everywhere and in every sphere of life!.

Except God is indeed with someone, people will not even see what you are doing talk more of patronizing you. Yes, you may be doing it the best way possible but without God's backing, you will be at loss. All of these human skills and measures are needed and important but before one venture into anything, first of all, let's prayers be made! God should be first!

You are very right, Many times people depend on their own ability and skill. Skill and ability are good but it is better when backed with Grace. We have seen people are very hard working and willing to do anything and are not lazy but all they do does not blossom. And you will see another man who does little and puts less efforts and yet is getting so much.

Grace makes little effort to make it a huge one. Grace makes a man who take a step appear to be a giant leap. That is why one cannot do without God's Grace in our lives

@ogiejoe: exactly my point and that is why a person that has gone north, east, west and south of the world is bound to see the need of God in their lives!.

@obinnaoguji: One of major reasons why most businesses don't flourish in Nigeria is because people don't devote their time and energy into the business
Many attimes people run businesses to make profits majorly which eventually affects their business because they tend to reduce the quality of their inorder to make profits.
Which on the long run affects them.
Focus more on keeping a customer, the only way you can do that is by rendering quality service to these customers.

This has an impact in the growth of ur business.

@lilcent: well you are right about the fact that most businesses do not flourish because most people do not devote their time energy to the business.
But the idea the running a business shouldn't be based on making profits is something I strongly disagree with.
Every single time the cost of raw materials keep going high in the market, do u expect business men and women to be running at a loss because they want to keep a customer?
Remember they've got family and responsibilities to fend for as well.
