We are often asked to review an existing company’s basic operations and services to see what improvements we might suggest to boost sales and generate higher profits. We also look at the workplace culture to suggest ways to improve the work environment. We developed this checklist that is useful in determining the level of success a company is experiencing and how our firm might help. There are five elements that seem to be very informative when we look at an organization’s overall business health. If you lead a company, or are considering starting a new venture, this checklist is for you.
You Have a Steady Stream of Referrals
• 83% of satisfied customers are willing to make a referral, only 29% actually do.
• Home grown, unique brands have a distinct advantage over their competitors.
• When we work with businesses, we offer connections to other businesses, which become referrals.
You Have Systems in Place, So You Don’t Have to Do Everything
• Your systems create revenue, so you work on the business, not for the business
• You’ve identified what functions you can outsource, or hire staff to handle them.
