Episode 127: 100 to 1 Million

The main goal of any business plan is to obtain new clients and keep them on as clients.  But in order to achieve that you must reach 100% of the marketplace utilizing 100% of the ways. This week I am going to share how to take your recruitment and retention results to an even higher level.

Highlights:

  • Don’t rely on email to reach your market. If you are not deleted, it may be a long time until it is read
  • Take on the mindset of a consumer.
  • Design a marketing campaign and use all venues within your reach include phone, snail mail, email, text, video, and run the gamut
  • There is power in the human voice, it helps with a connection so don’t be afraid to call or use voice broadcasting
  • Research on how a certain marketplace likes to communicate and build a campaign around that
  • When do you start reaching out to your lost souls, referrals, and wind backs? Day zero.
  • Everything starts with two things: decision and action

 

Until next time, get out there and make a difference, be unstoppable, and leave no regrets!

Episode 126: 1 Billion Dollar Revenue

What’s the biggest mistake you’ve made over the past year, or year and a half?  I was in a room with entrepreneurs who generate over $1 billion in annual revenue and that question was one of the most important when it came to learning how to take your business to the next level.  Join me as I share the answer to this question and the stories behind them.

Highlights:

  • Severance packages are the cost of poor leadership
  • Never take your foot off the pedal on a prospect
  • Be careful of who you are hiring
  • Just one person can affect the culture of a company and not always in a good way
  • How you personally lead will make or break the success of your team and over the business
  • The opportunity costs due to lack of action
  • Make sure you have deep conversations with the people you want to promote as sometimes they are already in the right position for them
  • Always be recruiting. Ensure you have the team members to handle the opportunities as they arise
  • When it comes to launching, ensure you have the framework fully developed before doing so
  • Keep your eye on the marketplace
  • Balance your priorities
  • Have a cyber plan and cyber insurance program
  • Hire great people, give them authority and get out of their way
