You are already professionally producing your service or product.
Now you have to professionally produce your business. You may wonder what does that mean?
The presentation of your company to your customer base at a quality level to generate enough interest to buy your services or products.
Now you think “How is that done?”
Your entire company must have a common theme, from its business cards, to its letterhead, its logo, product packaging, color schemes, staff appearance, website, promotional materials, public relations messages, office space, tradeshows, email formats, motto, purpose, goals, company policy, staff training, etc.
In other words, all aspects of your company must have a common denominator to them for every presentation. This takes thought, accompanied by surveys of your customer base, coordination of all involved, carried-through intentions, planning and overall correct leadership with lofty goals that can, in fact, be done.
If you view your whole business as a form of art, which it truly is, it must also contain a high level of attraction by its “audience” which will elicit response and a desire to buy your services or products.
At that point, it comes down to sales, which is far easier if all prior points are fully in place.
Most businesses start with someone who knows how to deliver a certain product or service; and most do not know that it takes additional work and time to produce a properly designed and operating enterprise.
Why? The owner’s training is normally based around their ability to deliver their service/product; they do not necessarily have workable training in company design, PR, marketing or management.
You may accomplish these things by hiring others with specialized training who have a proven track record, or out-source this work to other professional firms.
Either way, the high quality and professional presentation of your company, IS what will make it successful. Providing your company does have a truly needed and wanted service or product.
Every once in a while, take the view of the customer to see what they see ─ really look, it may just surprise you.
