Did you know that 65% of Businesses in Australia fail within the first 3 years and 90% of businesses fail within the first 5 years?
Phew…we are in year 6, so we must be safe, right? Maybe not. Of those who survive the first five, 70% are breaking even or making a loss! So, why?
A lot of business owners we have met along our journey don’t believe they are in sales. However, as the title of this article states “without sales business fails” or to put it another way “Fish don’t jump into ships”. If you are not generating revenue, how can you grow, scale or even survive?
Prospecting is the first step of the sales process and there are a few steps that can help:
- Create a database of likely customers
- Systematically communicate with them
- Find your target markets
- Who is your ideal client?
- Who do you want to work with?
- Who don’t you want to work with?
- Where do you find them?
- Where do they hang out?
- What is the best industry to target based on results?
- Identify how to reach them
- What events are they active in?
- What social media do they uses?
- Remember the TSA rule – Be Two Steps Ahead.
