Monday Morning MEM0 28022022– This Week’s Strategy – The forgotten way to get customers?

Lots of people forget that this is a way to get customers.

Do you want to grow your business quickly? Lots of people are trying to grow their business but forget that there is a simple way to do this. They  continue to struggle to get customers . 

They also continue to forget or overlook the #1 thing that can get them customers and it is not only how you dress.  This is something we all have but we keep looking all over for ways to get customers. Why do you think all those successful  entrepreneurs and professionals  are constantly doing well?  They build a good reputation.  They have their own personal brand.  There is a certain way they treat their clients,  their suppliers, their staff, coworkers and even their loved ones.

If you have not started as yet, you need to start now to build your reputation and your personal brand. This is the most forgotten way and you need to move on it fast. This is not just the product or service you offer but who is at the back of that product or service. When people speak about your product or service they speak about you, it’s the feelings, the appreciation, what would make them remember you to do a repeat purchase. Most people complete repeat purchases because they like the people there, they like how they are treated. Staff stay with the company because they like how they are treated and that culture comes from you.

So the forgotten way to grow your business is to focus on your reputation or personal brand. Do things with integrity, treat people well, leave a good impression wherever you pass. Remember you only pass that way once. You only have one opportunity with the client or supplier or even a loved one to create that lasting impression.

Monday Morning MEM0 21022022– This Week’s Strategy – #1 Way how not to sabotage yourself?

#1 way how not to sabotage yourself is to do things right the first time.

It is easy to take short cuts or to do something quickly because you are in a hurry or you just want to get rid of the client or the person in front of you.

One of the reasons you would want to do things right the first time is because mistakes cost money. Imagine taking a short cut in producing your product or delivering your service. The results could be great but on the other hand could be detrimental. It would cost more if you have to redo a product or imagine having to call a customer to say something is wrong with the product you sold them. There are many ways to do things, however you have to identify the right way and stick to it. It always costs more to do over something than to do it right the first time, but when you do it right you stop sabotaging yourself.

When you make a mistake, it directly affects your reputation. Reputation is key to your business or job, so you do not want to jeopardize this. Most people store your mistakes in their mind, so they would think twice about purchasing a product or service from you. Making mistakes help in sabotaging your reputation so focus on what you have to do and do it right the first time. After all you can’t go back in time and repair your reputation.

I am sure you can find. a lot more reasons to do things right the first time. This week don’t sabotage what you do or yourself,  focus on doing things right the first time. In the long run you won’t regret it.

Monday Morning MEM0 14022022– This Week’s Strategy – How can I do that?

How can I do that?

How can I get and keep clients or close friends or what would it take to get me what I want?

Well, you certainly want to get and keep clients and close friends.

It is a given we were not born into a world by ourselves, and we are all connected.

Some people have problems getting and keeping clients, close friends or even maintaining a good relationship.  Instead of focusing on how they can do that, they focus on what is not good about them – I am not good with customers, I am not good at making friends, people don’t like me, that is not my personality. Even where God is concerned, they are like: I did not tell Jesus to die for me.

When a problem arises whether it is getting clients, maintaining your relationships the first question to ask is: How can I do that?  When you do this the mind starts exploring options that you can use.  So, in your business ask: how can get more clients and start brainstorming. In your relationships ask: how can I maintain my relationships or get into a relationship. Or even what would it take to get me the clients that I need or the relationships that is right for me.

Nothing comes without effort so today and every day you get the opportunity to ask yourself how to live like you never lived before and love like you never love before. What it would take to get me there?

Monday Morning MEM0 07022022– This Week’s Strategy – You said I would get this today! What happened?

I am sure throughout your life you may have heard this a couple of times: You said I would get this today! What happened? We break commitments we make every day.

We promise customers to get back to them and we don’t for a multitude of reasons, we tell our boss we will get the business or we will review the file, but that never happens and we make promises to our loved ones and these are never fulfilled.

Some people don’t commit because they know that they may not deliver, they say – “I am not committing, but when I get the chance or the time I will do it’. Some people do not even want to get married because they do not want to commit. They want to be able to walk out whenever they want.

If you want to succeed in life you have to commit to something and you have to keep those commitments. When you do not keep those commitments you live your life with a lot of unfinished business.

People who are committed are those who get the work done, if they say I am going to do this you know it would be done. Those who are not committed just keep taking their time prodding along and nothing much is happening.

Think about it: What are you committed to doing in your business, your job or your personal life? How have you been keeping your commitments? As they say – behavior never lies. Your commitment to whatever you decide shows up in your performance, how you operate your business, your performance in your job and the healthiness of your family and your personal life.

Don’t leave a string of unfinished business or issues behind you, commit to doing better, making life better for you and for all the people you interact with. After all you only pass this way once so leave a positive mark.

Have a great and productive week!
