Defining your products and services
In most service based businesses you’ll get customers because they know you, like you and trust you — it’s as simple as that. So you need some fundamental tools to help you get discovered, demonstrate your capabilities and develop trust. Remember, that your new clients will also be shopping around when they discover you so you need to know your market, know your competitors and clearly define what you do and how you do it.
You’ll explore margins on products and how to measure your gross and net profit margins, define strategies to help increase your income and profit margin as well as reduce costs and we provide spreadsheets to help you caters for higher initial marketing costs and operational changes from month to month so you get used to regular and swift “test and measure” reporting.
