It’s time to Go Ahead. Dream Big! For the next few weeks, we will be profiling Blue Zenith’s newest venture, Go Ahead. Dream Big., here on our blog and on our social media channels! We’re excited about this new venture, not just because it’s a new expansion of our business, but because it’s a new and exciting platform for us to help our clients develop and expand their businesses and organizations.
Bringing Your Offline Business Online
Go Ahead. Dream Big. is a business development program, but unlike other business development programs, we’re not promising miracle solutions or quick secrets for boosting your bottom line. While successfully implementing our program can certainly help drive the success of your organization, our goal is to help you focus on the development or redevelopment of your business, bringing your offline business online and strategically and intentionally changing your relationship with your customers, all of which will boost your business over the long-term.
You may believe that your small business is doing just fine, and that another business development program is unnecessary, especially if you are a seasoned entrepreneur with years or even decades of experience under your belt. However, if you are not learning and discovering new ways to grow your business and connect with your target market, your business may be unable to compete against your larger competitors.
What Are You Up Against?
If you are an entrepreneur competing in a market or industry with large corporations, you already know that the resources your competitors have at their disposal are vast and seemingly limitless. When it comes to branding, marketing, and advertising, this is true whether you’re competing directly with a large corporation or a franchise owner with the backing of a large corporation. These larger companies may have some distinct advantages over small businesses, yet many of these advantages can be matched or even overcome by small businesses. An entrepreneur, freelancer, or small business manager that understands this concept can make great headway in countering or even nullifying their disadvantages. The key to effectively competing against a large competitor is to maximize the advantages you enjoy as a small business while mitigating and minimizing the disadvantages.
Leveling The Playing Field
Many large companies understand the importance of being a customer-centric business – in fact, they’ve likely spent vast fortunes hiring teams of branding and marketing experts with the explicit purpose of knowing and connecting with the target market for their product or service. It can be a daunting reality that these competitors have already mastered their branding and marketing campaigns, but we believe that anyone can compete if they have the right tools. By leveling the playing field between your business and your large competitors, you can compete on a level that you may have previously thought was impossible, boosting your business and your bottom line!
In our next blog post, we will discuss the importance of identifying your ideal customers and target market.
