Also in part one, I gave you strategies 1 and 2 for getting things done. Below is the remainder of the ‘get more done’ strategies.
- Experiment and Reinvent. What is the best time to try something new — when the old isn’t working? It may feel safer to stay in your comfort zone, but sticking with the same old products, services or marketing strategy might actually be riskier.
Be open to reinventing your business and personal brand if it will impact the bottom line. In this economy, it’s more important than ever to avoid becoming a ‘me too’ brand.
Need some inspiration? Check out Seth Godin’s book: Purple Cow. This is a great read for making your company remarkable. I always refer back to this book.
- Expand your network.Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn have their uses, but they’ll never replace face-to-face meetings and networking events, especially to win new business and get referrals.
Be sure you are building your business both on- and off-line.
- Team up. Working with ‘channel partners’– companies that target the same market but with products or services different from yours – this can be an ultra-effective marketing strategy. These partners are already spending time and money to attract the customers you want, and you can piggyback on their efforts.
Just make sure that you bring something to the table that creates a win–win.
- Leverage your brand. In this economy, it’s more important than ever to avoid becoming a ‘me too’ brand. Low prices and quality service are no longer enough. Whether it’s a YouTube video, an iPad App or a free tasting event – offer something to make customers take notice.
“What do you bring to the table that no one else is serving up to your clients and potential clients?” Well, you must first understand what sets you apart and then become completely fluent in communicating to your target audience what separates you from the herd.”
So it’s time to make the right choices. Review this list as if your business depended on it (and it does), then start to work on each of the ‘get more done’ for business growth.
