Three Ways to Build a Properous Business that don’t involve Marketing
with business coach and bestselling author Robin Waite
Robin will share simple non-marketing strategies that will help make your practice more successful.
"Pretty much every business owner I meet these days is bashing their head against a wall because they “don’t understand marketing”, and quite rightly so because there are plenty of other ways to grow a business.
First, however, you need to unpack “why” you’re in business in the first place and what your Goals are for your business. When you know that you can start to unpack the economics behind how to build a prosperous business. None of which involves an ounce of extra marketing that all of the so-called experts and gurus are telling you to do.
If you can set sensible goals for your business you can then start to work out what actions are required to move you closer to your goal.
Those actions include improving your product/service offering, getting your pricing right and then improving your customer journey.
Get those right and you don’t need a single extra client…and you can still achieve twice the revenue you’re currently earning."
