Want your business to be a success? That would be a resounding “Yes” from most business leaders. Invariably you can also get a different version of the same answer: successful. Depending on your strategy and eventual goals success can mean more than one thing. Maybe you want more clients, possibly a higher profit level or to become the leader in your industry. So the expectations
you set determine the results your eventual success achieves.
Create your mission
It is a fact that the motivation to achieve only profit has deposited many failed businesses along the wayside. Try to refine your view and align it with your purpose. That’s when the major question of “Why?” needs to be answered.
Live your purpose
Some businesses are created by simply asking “Why?” Find your mission, define it, understand it and live it. Understand why you get out of bed in the morning. Define what you do and keep that strategy on straight track. Find your company purpose. Apple has always sold challenges to the public. They sell innovative thinking; it is an art the way they do it. They were born from brilliance, and just happen to sell computers. But the world perceives them to be an innovative maverick and that perception is hard to uproot.
So, how do you measure up? The “Why?” is established and defined. Next step is to highlight your expertise and experience, the special elements that make the service you offer stand above the rest. You can apply the key metrics I use to analyze the effectiveness of a brand. The external metric is how the world perceives your business. The second is the internal metric. These are elements you have the power and control to modify. Study the internal metrics carefully to see if you need to shift or modify any elements.
If you have difficulty determining the “Why?” or defining the key metrics we can help you. You already know success is within reach and you are worthy of an audience. Timing is ideal to convince them your offerings deserve their undivided attention.
