SIMPLE

STEPS TO INCREASE THE VALUE OF ANY BUSINESS BY DANIEL SWIFT

Even if you’re not planning on selling your business in the near future, there are several strategies that every business owner can employ to build a better company and create more value. As part of this effort, it is important to understand that overall value is typically determined both as a function of your earnings and financial position and the inherent strength of your business (off balance sheet items). While it is easy to measure the value of your financial position, understanding and improving the off balance sheet items that create and drive value are critical to positioning your company for long term success.

Following these steps will help create maximum value for your business: Build a deep management team: One of the most difficult challenges for an entrepreneur, and one of the critical differences between a good company and a great company, is the depth and quality of the senior managerial team. Too many entrepreneurs make the mistake of trying to run and grow their businesses with only one or two people capable of making critical decisions. As a result, most businesses will plateau in their growth. If your company can’t function efficiently without your direct daily involvement, then you need to immediately begin to hire and develop talent or the future of your business is in jeopardy. Diversify your customer base: Your largest customer should ideally be no more than 20% of your revenues and/or profitability. While it’s often efficient and easy to allow a major customer to develop into a substantial portion of your sales, nothing could be more dangerous to the future health and value of a business. Once a customer becomes a critical portion of your revenues and/or profits, then they own you. They can begin to dictate the financial terms of the relationship and any change in their business, be it financial, personnel or otherwise, has a direct effect on the health and value of your business. While it might require extra effort and possibly some short term sacrifices to your bottom line as you build other accounts, the long term benefit of a diversified customer base is a significant reduction in your financial risk profile.

Develop Contractually Recurring Revenue: All revenue dollars are not created equal. Revenue dollars from a contract for annual maintenance, annual licensing fees, a recurring retainer fee, technology license, etc. are much more powerful drivers than projected sales revenue, time and materials revenue, or other non recurring revenue streams. Develop a proprietary product or service: To truly thrive as a company, you must distinguish yourself in the marketplace by offering a unique product or service that can’t easily be replicated by competitors.. Ask yourself if your customers, employees and competitors can all quickly describe what differentiates your company. A superior product or service will create the opportunity for a pricing advantage in good times and customer loyalty in difficult periods. Prepare and execute a business plan: Establish operational and financial plans and goals for your business in one, three and five year increments and share them with your employees. The plans should take into account various economic, industry and company specific scenarios and how management would react to each. In addition to creating a roadmap for your future growth, this will focus your business and your employees around quantifiable goals and will allow you to make better business decisions as you grow your business. Seek the help of outside professional advisors: Seek the assistance of outside professionals, i.e. legal and accounting professionals. Not only can they provide objective counsel as you grow your business, they can help you avoid disastrous legal, financial and operational mistakes that may have significant financial consequences down the road. Conclusion: When it comes to unlocking the market value of your privately held company, it is not limited to the bottom line. While profitability is important the factors above can result in significant premiums over traditional valuation approaches. Article Source: www.EzineArticles.com/7271272

Ways For

Small Businesses

To Get Good Word Of Mouth

By Bob Reiss | http://EzineArticles.com/6164947

The most effective advertising a company can get is more difficult to achieve but much more effective and lasting than traditional media advertising. It is word of mouth advertising, and it is earned rather than purchased. It is your customers’ opinion of your product, which at times can be very vocal with praise or derision. It is available to start-ups as well as large corporations. It can be achieved with minimal cash outlays by doing things right. It can be earned quickly or over a long period of time, depending on the product or service you are selling. Word of mouth is sometimes instantaneous. After people view a new movie, they talk about what they’ve just seen. It could be “What a great picture” or “This was a stiff.” Descriptive word spreads quickly, and new viewers of that movie result if those who saw and liked it tell their friends. On the other hand, word of mouth on an automobile takes a much longer time. Drivers are interested in how well the car drives, the ease and quality of service, the car’s trade-in value, how problems are handled, car breakdowns, etc. Here are seven factors to consider for creating a good word of mouth for your company and its products. 1. Quality - From day one, all company employees must be aware of the importance of maintaining quality, and systems must be put in place to monitor it. Any products or components outsourced must be rigorously inspected to see that your standards are met. 2. Service - Regardless of whether your product is a high or low service one, customers’ problems with its use must be addressed and solved with a minimum of effort on the customer’s part and in a timely fashion. 3. Instructions - Many products need to be assembled or explained. The instructions accompanying the product must be clear and concise. Many companies fail miserably in this area and devote little time and effort to it. Poor instructions can turn off consumers to all your future products and create bad word of mouth. 4. Communications - All contact with your customers and their inquiries must be promptly addressed with courtesy and knowledge. This starts with the telephone. 5. Value - The value you deliver on your products to customers is paramount in their returning and spreading the good word about you. It must meet or exceed their expectations. A good maxim to deliver to all the employees is to under promise and over deliver. 6. High integrity - You want all your stakeholders and customers to trust you. This trust must be earned continuously. It takes time to develop, but can be lost in an instant. Problems must be addressed and solved quickly. They cannot be ducked, delayed, or shifted politically. Mistakes should be admitted and corrected. People want to do business and work for trustworthy companies.

Tip for Entrepreneurs Have humans answer your phones, not computers like most large companies do. This simple move will start you on the good word of mouth path with your customers. Also your receptionist, who I call “The Director of First Impressions,” is a more important hire than most employers acknowledge. You want an upbeat, intelligent, pleasant person in that slot. Management’s interactions with employees, suppliers, and stake holders should also be first class and monitored. This good word of mouth as well as customers are important to the company’s health.

7. Be a good citizen - There is no doubt that a company’s prime responsibility is to make a profit. To not do so will eventually lead to its demise and the loss of all jobs. Do not be embarrassed to earn a profit. However, I believe the company has a responsibility to take actions to enhance the quality of life of their community and employees. This good citizen appellation should not be just empty promises for show. If real, it is also good for your business, your family, and your sleep.

By: Allacyn Griffin-May There are 6.8 billion people on the planet. 5.1 billion of them own a cell phone, but only 4.2 billion own a toothbrush (EZtexting.com). This is an astounding statistic and gives you an idea of why so many businesses are jumping to mobile as a way to reach their customers. There are a lot of reasons businesses should have a mobile strategy.

GROWTH The worldwide smart phone market grew 54.7% year over year in the fourth quarter of 2011 (IDC). There is no doubt that the sales of mobile devices have been pretty amazing. With this fast growth taking place it is no wonder that people are rushing to beat out their competitors by creating mobile products and adapting current products to meet their customers mobile needs. There are more mobile phones on the planet than there are TVs (EZtexting.com).

a captive audience around the clock with mobile. This differs from other channels while a phone can be turned off just like the tv and computer people are less likely to turn the phone off giving businesses more opportunities to reach the consumer.

ENGAGEMENT It takes 90 minutes for the average person to respond to an email. It takes 90 seconds for the average person to respond to a text message (CTIA.org). The growth, personalization, and accessibility that mobile offer have given businesses an effective way to engage with their customers. Marketers are able to create more meaningful interactions for consumers and consumers are more likely to engage with them.

WHAT SHOULD YOUR BUSINESS DO ABOUT IT?

ACCESSIBILITY

Start by optimizing your website for mobile. With so many people using their mobile devices to access information it is important that your business information is there. Going to a site that is not mobile-friendly can be frustrating and cause users to leave the site soon after they visit it, so it is important to make sure your site is optimized. Next you should look at your products and think about whether or not there are any applications you could add to your product line that would make it easier for consumers to use. You want to make sure that consumers have the easiest time possible using your products and mobile applications put your products at the fingertips of your customers.

91% of all U.S. citizens have their mobile device within reach 24/7 (Morgan Stanley). That means that you have

PERSONALIZATION Mobile coupons get 10 times the redemption rate of traditional coupons (Borrell Associates). Mobile is able to provide a more interactive and targeted experience than any other channel because consumers have to opt-in to programs to get offers and alerts. The ability to target messaging with mobile means that consumers get the information that they decide they want and this leads to successful marketing. 70% of all mobile searches result in action within 1 hour (Mobile Marketer).
