7 Steps to Creating New Business Opportunities

Step 1: Concentrate on your core product.

New Business Opportunities: An e-newsletter entrepreneur who is very successful has built his business around the following mantra: Prospects will buy when they believe that your value is relevant to them and your company is stable. He can constantly review the value and services he provides his customers because of this strong position. This statement will be a key ingredient to any solid plan. Keep it in mind as you go through the remaining steps.

Small service businesses often feel that they must compete with the big guys. Small-business owners cannot compete in the same manner. It is essential that small businesses differentiate themselves by focusing their unique capabilities and core products to potential customers. Entrepreneurs are best if they can specialize.

Step 2: Keep your pitch simple.

Did you ever get a concise and clear answer when you asked someone about their company at a party? Did your eyes glaze over as they finished their explanation? It was most likely the latter. Imagine the same pitch being presented for prospects who don’t have a glass to distract them. This is not a pretty image.

A simple elevator pitch is what every company needs. It’s a concise, succinct message that conveys your message to prospects in 30 seconds. This message explains the benefits of your product or service so prospects understand why it is relevant to them.

This little exercise will help you test your pitch clarity. Ask someone who isn’t familiar with your company to listen to what you have to say. Tell the world about your company and look out for signs of fatigue such as eyes watering and lids becoming heavy. You may have the perfect pitch. If you don’t have the perfect pitch, it will be obvious by your verbal and/or physical responses.

Step 3: Be true to yourself

Understanding who you are, what drives you mad and what bores you to death will help you achieve your goals. A growth plan can be scuppered by discomfort or procrastination. It’s human nature to procrastinate about things that cause discomfort. Every business owner hates the daily tasks that come with running a business. You might be putting off things, and it is time to delegate.

Keep true to yourself and your strengths. Expand your skills and knowledge in line with your interests. Hire a bookkeeper if accounting is your problem. Hire a temp worker to help you set up a new filing system if your organization is out of control. Focus on your “A” priorities and delegate the rest.

Step 4: Plan it.

It is a great way to establish your service strategy by comparing your capabilities with the needs of your target clients. You will discover that you are not an expert in all areas and you need to target customers who do not require your expertise.

Many entrepreneurs share a common trait: the desire to be all things to all businesses. A small business thrives in almost all cases because it offers a narrower range of services. A small business’ value lies in its ability to offer high-quality, unique services.

Create a list with decision-making criteria you expect clients to use in choosing a provider within your industry. Next, rank yourself and be honest about where you would be in each category. After this thorough evaluation, ensure that your elevator pitch remains on point.

Step 5: Use the marketing tools that are most effective for you.

You should choose a marketing strategy that suits you and your customers. If you are afraid of speaking in front of people, then don’t plan to be on a panel with the hope of generating new business. You’ll derail your efforts if you don’t perform well.

Identify the two most successful marketing tools that you have used in the past for your company. Let’s take cold calling and a website. For a fresh perspective, you can add new ideas. Also, consider the cost and financial implications of your marketing tools when selecting them. You must decide what will give you the highest return on your investment. Every tool should produce a revenue-producing outcome in some way.

Step 6: Create a plan.

We’ve been in planning mode up until now, but now it is time to get in on the ground floor and start to put it to use. You will have a map that you can use to track your progress.

Set goals that you can review every three to six months. Keep checking your plan at each step of the three-month cycle to ensure you are meeting your goals. Ask why you aren’t hitting the target. Did the tool fit your target customer? Do you have a strategy? Or did you focus on one tool?

Don’t forget about the specific actions you will take every day to reach your goals. This daily strategy will help you keep your plan’s goals in mind.

Step 7: Implement the plan.

The final step is easy: Do the daily actions and then add something to your success plan. You can either let it go or find another way to keep your eyes on your goal. Do not let unplanned tasks take up valuable time that could be used to reach your goal. Enjoy the journey!
