The results are in, and you’re a:

MASTER

Congratulations, you have done the hard work to secure a strong place in the market.

You are meeting your revenue goals, but most of those sales are from first-time buyers. It’s time to double down on customer retention and create a loyal fan base of repeat customers!

“When you fail to treat your customers well. . . you are sending your competition a very expensive gift!”

— Linette Montae

So what is my next step?

Turn your interests towards exploring acquisitions, enhancing passive streams of revenue, and implementing strong investment strategies.

Your company is healthy, and a long-term strategic plan is your next play.

This may take some time, and the growth that comes from next-level strategies may break the systems you worked hard to create. But when you develop and execute a solid competitive strategy, it’s possible to make profits that generate an above-average return. And it’ll be worth the effort when you start seeing those next-level results!

You know what your ideal customer wants. Now it’s time to invest in the relationship.

If you treat your current customers exceptionally well, they’ll be more likely to leave a positive review and recommend you to their friends. First, carve out time to talk to your customers and build a solid relationship. Second, now that you know your customer, deliberately craft an experience that will have your customers coming back to buy from you again and again.

This is a pivotal stage in a company’s life – it can grow into a big business, or it can fall prey to owner impatience.

Focus on OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE.

Having a successful business model is not a guarantee the same model will work in a different location or with a different target market.

Before rushing to broaden your horizons, look at your resources and be realistic about the effort, cost, and potential returns of expanding.

If necessary, costs need to be cut, and budgets tightened to sustain cash flow.

2.

Performance Improvement

This stage is marked by rapid year-over-year growth and a solid core of employees who are trained and loyal.

Focus on SUSTAINABILITY.

Both operational and strategic planning is being done, and your systems are more refined and extensive.

You and the business have become reasonably separate, but the company is still dominated by your presence and possibly investor control.

To further expand the company, you must prepare your key managers to competently handle the challenges of a growing and complex business environment – without relying on you.

FUNDING EXPANSION

This stage is marked by predictable revenue, the acquisition of other business entities, and multiple product/service spinouts.

Focus on RESULTS.

In the face of growth and increasing distribution channels, create a streamlined plan to finance growth, put your energy into gaining a bigger market share as well as look for new profitable revenue opportunities.

Your company is prime for investors to buy because its consistent performance can reliably generate revenue in the future.

HOW you choose to expand will determine whether your company remains a thriving enterprise or a failed venture.
