Today we’re going to continue our conversation on the marketing truths, which, again, are expandable mindset techniques of how you think about marketing. They can be superimposed over any type of marketing campaign. Not only is this universally true for every single industry, but especially for your particular industry, you may think that video, for example, won’t work in your industry; we talk about this in the video and tell you why and how you should go about doing this.
So, right now I’m going to talk about increasing the income of your business. Nothing happens in terms of business growth until you sell a product or a service. The first way to increase your business is to increase the number of customers that you already have. This is one way we’re always striving to use a business growth method. The second is increase the number of times that you sell to the clients you already have. The third is to increase your prices. When is the best time to increase your prices? It’s also a good idea to learn some tips about saving on small business costs and how you can put a cost-savings plan in place for your company.
Take all three of these into account making sure that you have your thought processes right, you have the products that the client wants and you have the ability to upsell. Again, I ask you when is it the right time to increase your prices. Sometimes you can take a look at market conditions, such as in real estate. Also, look at how busy you are and the clients that you have. You can increase your prices by 10-20% and based on that traffic you’re getting in your facility or website.
