Why A Business Model Is So Important

Tuesday, November 5, 2013
A business model explains the rationale of how a company establishes, provides, and captures value. It includes the product or services offered, sources of revenue, customer base, organizational structure, strategies, operational process, and financing. Basically, the methodology and infrastructure of a business combine to form the business model. This model should be created long before a business opens its doors. 

Why A Business Model Is So Important

Before starting a business, an entrepreneur should be aware of the basic process for building one. This knowledge proves valuable when creating the business model. Certain aspects of infrastructure, operations, and strategic thinking have proven successful, while others are destined to fail. Being able to distinguish one from the other enables a business owner to avoid the pitfalls. A business with a model that maximizes opportunities and avoids threats is positioned for long-term success.

Sales are an important aspect of the business model and this is where proven methods really shine. By learning how to quickly generate income from sales, any business can get out of the growing pains stage much faster. The sooner a company can pass through this phase, the less likely it is to become a statistic. Quick success is especially important in the online world, where competition is particularly fierce. When a company becomes financially independent, so will its owners, and this is a much more comfortable way to live.

Closing a sale successfully is what leads to income so a business model should include information regarding closing techniques. These should be based on success achieved by other businesses and should be shared with the entire staff. Every employee serves as a mouthpiece for the organization so it only makes sense that each staff member be skilled in closing a deal.

Prospects have many excuses, especially during times when money is tight. They may be fearful of making a purchase because they do not want to spend their hard-earned money. Some of them convert this fear to aggression, placing pressure on the business. Staff should be trained in handling these situations and know how to convert negatives like this to positives.

Leaders in business know what it takes to achieve and maintain a high level of sales. It is not unusual for them to have salaries into the seven figures. By incorporating what they do and how they do it, any business can realize similar results. A sound business model can result in an entrepreneur making more money than ever anticipated.

Driving Traffic To Your Website To Grow Your Mlm Business (part I)

Wednesday, August 28, 2013
I have already mentioned in another article how depending on your warm market to grow your MLM or network marketing business is a recipe for failure. How then, do you create a non-stop flood of targeted leads? In other words, how do you drive traffic to your website? Let's talk about a "traditional" business. What do they do to generate publicity for themselves, and therefore generate customers? They MARKET their business. Notice anything? Network MARKETERS. MARKET a business. See the connection? You are still marketing your business to drive traffic to your site and generate income; the difference is in the business model. Marketing strategies of a traditional business are the very same strategies that network marketers use to create website traffic, or if they aren't using them, they SHOULD be. They are: · Build a website (which includes the components of an automated marketing system as well as a call to action, otherwise it is just a very expensive image ad) · Try to get their business written up in the press · Advertise to drive traffic to your website and generate customers (reps in your downline) There are many different forms of advertising that enable you to drive traffic to your site and generate a flood of pre-qualified leads for your network marketing business. Here is a partial list: · PPC (Pay per click) · SEO (Search engine optimization) · Email marketing · Blog/Write articles · Video marketing · Press releases In this post we are going to focus on PPC advertising. What is Pay Per Click (PPC)? Pay-Per-Click (PPC) is an advertising method which makes use of search engines, websites and network traffic. A user clicks on an ad which directs, or drives, them to a particular site. Each click is paid for by the advertiser (YOU). PPC is based on a bidding process where the advertising party (YOU) bids on a keyword or string of unique keywords. Competitive keywords are more pricey. However, with good keyword research you can find keywords as cheap as $0.01 per click. Google AdSense is the largest network to advertise via PPC, and they have an excellent keyword tool for you to research your keywords and keyword phrases before you bid on them. Advantages of PPC There are many advantages to PPC advertising: · Fast and easy. PPC creates instant traffic to your site. You can set up your account, create an ad and get it online within a day. · Top position easily achieved on a search engine if you are willing to outbid your competitors. · Complete control over advertising campaign. You set the daily advertising budget according to what you can afford (as little as $5/day), in what geographical regions the ad will run, you can even adjust your budget to be more or less on certain days depending on daily response results. · No limit to the keywords and keyword phrases you can use to advertise your network marketing business or affiliate product. · Results are easily tracked and measured. Statistics gathered enable you to keep track of the exact cost per customer acquisition, determine which keywords perform best, etc. · No commitment necessary. You can run your ads for as long or as short a period of time as you want, from just days to many months. You decide. Disadvantages of PPC What are the downsides to PPC? · It costs money. Why do I list this as a disadvantage? It's obvious it costs money, "pay" is right in the name of the advertising method! Well, in any business, low operating costs is always a primary goal, and there are free methods for advertising your network marketing business, so I felt it was appropriate to note this as a disadvantage. If you have the money, it is highly effective! If you are operating on a tight budget, however, this is something to consider when developing your network marketing ad campaigns. · People are skeptical of advertising and therefore tend to ignore sponsored (PPC) ads. Various studies have shown that only 15-20% of small businesses actually get a good return on investment (ROI) and recoup their PPC advertising costs. To Use or Not to Use PPC My thoughts on PPC: If you track your statistics closely and optimize your advertising dollars spent, this is an effective part of a multi-faceted marketing campaign. Do not depend on it as your sole source of revenue, just as I have advised you not to depend exclusively on your warm market to build your network marketing business. Also, design your ads so that they are aligned with valuable information on your site. Don't try to convert visitors into customers (or in your case, representatives in your downline) in one step. Nurture the relationship with your prospects through providing valuable content that is of benefit to them, and lead them down the path to where they are clamoring to become a part of your network marketing business, not you begging them to do so.

Community Assumptions And Business Responsibility

Saturday, August 24, 2013
Social responsibilities lay in business framework Most people think of business simply as a way to generate money. While this may be a primary motivating factor for some, it also carries many underlain responsibilities. Business owners become part of the infrastructure of the community. They supply a service or product which fills a need of the community. The common bond linking community and business lies in each others realization of shared assumptions. Business realizes they fill a need, desire or fixation of the community and the community realizes who their contributor is. While community can survive without business, business on the other hand cannot exist without community. No community is self sufficient and no business is customer free. Business must develop social programs and policies that can be seen as responsive to social expectations, but not necessarily limited to socially demand. A firm having social awareness is in tune to its customer’s requirements as well as its’ viewpoint. There are three main driving forces between business and society: 1. The idealistic outlook: primarily relates to principles and social responsibility, 2. the institutional outlook: Its’ expression of social responsiveness 3. the organizational orientation: primarily relates to policies and management of social issues. There are four Basic Models of Business Relationships 1. Humanitarian - adhere to principles of compassion and reinvesting into the community 2. Ethical - adhere to principles of honesty and decency 3. Legal - adhere to all laws and regulations 4. Economic – adhere to making a profit. While a certain responsibility lies in being a good corporate partner and citizen, the most fundamental business responsibility is that of economics. The primary reason for being in business is to make a profit. Business exist for generating revenue for the business and in so doing, provides revenue for its employees. All other business responsibilities are based or established upon economic assumptions which is the responsibility of the people in charge. Without this statement the prognosis of future success becomes nothing more that arguable considerations. While plotting a course of action, businesses are expected to operate within the framework of societal law, thus carrying the burden of legal responsibility. Likewise, legal responsibility is restricted to the “letter” of the law, while the “spirit” of law is reserved for ethical reasoning. Next, businesses are expected to have an ethical responsibility which is defined as “any and all activities or practices which are either expected or prohibited by society members even though they are not written into law.” Ethical classifications are further separated from legal activities by use of negative definition: ethical responsibility relates to those social expectations and norms not yet codified into law. In the same line, philanthropic responsibility designates those areas of voluntary social involvement not specifically prohibited or demanded of companies because of their economic, legal, and ethical responsibilities. Business also carry as a philanthropic obligation to contribute to its community. This responsibility is discretionary in nature and seen as an investment in future growth. Even though this is not a requirement it is a necessary and sufficient obligation that socially expects from responsible businesses. Theoretical Assumptions If the economic role of the business is reduced to the narrow emphasis of profit it then could become blinded to making of contributed economics. This posturing leaves out the need for community relations. There is another scenario to consider which is in contrast to the ordinary view, the so-called separation thesis. This is when businesses focus either on profits or social concerns but not on both. This rises a question of debate that businesses can not only be profitable and ethical, but they should fulfill these obligations simultaneously. Can a business be profitable and disconnected from community? In today’s world, franchising brings business into a community while being completely detached from community needs. The clear-cut separation of business from community raises the problem of coexisting within a harmonious environment. Even though a business may appear to be separated the burden of responsibilities still apply. The business provides a tax revenue as well as product, service and employment. There are interwoven responsibilities which represent the stimulus for economic considerations. The social pressures imposed on today’s business are decreasing in importance, whereas economic and legal responsibilities are a requirement and ethical practices are vaguely expected, charitable contributions although desired, are completely voluntary. A good business citizen, while striving to fulfill all its responsibilities, will actually apply the necessary priorities to secure its status in the community. Businesses have a responsibility that goes well beyond the demands of law and common morality. They set as examples of good moral judgment and community responsibility.

Is It Better To Buy Or Lease Commercial Space For My Business

Tuesday, August 20, 2013
Your business location should be tailor-made to fit with your company budget, spacing requirements and ease of operation. For some business owners, leasing affords a sense of freedom and relieves the financial burden of a down payment, yet may be too restrictive for some kinds of operations. The decision to buy a piece of commercial property offers its own set of risks and rewards, and should be considered carefully before entering into a mortgage contract. Leasing Commercial Space 1. Cost Effective Leasing a commercial space will usually require a one to two month move-in deposit, making the rental space a cost efficient way to do business. New business owners may be strapped for cash, and by leasing, rather than purchasing, your storefront or office is cost effective to set up shop with minimal funding. 2. Flexibility Leasing a commercial space gives the entrepreneur plenty of room to grow, downsize or change locations. Although once you sign a lease, you are locked into a fixed amount of time to make the lease payments, the terms may be only a matter of months to be released and start over in another location. 3. Freedom Setting up shop without the burden of a mortgage to pay allows a sense of financial freedom. Albeit, a purchased piece of commercial property could be leased or sold to another, there could be months before the owner receives any income from the property. A hefty mortgage may also interfere with business profits and may demand downsizing of personnel. 4. Maintenance A leased office or shop has a landlord to lean on, taking away tedious responsibilities with the plumbing, electricity and security. In a leasing situation, any repairs or legal liabilities are left in the hands of the building management team. 5. Subletting In some situations, you may sublet your leased office space to another. However, this must be cleared in writing from the management office, and careful attention given to their rules and regulations for renting out the space. Buying Commercial Space 1. Secured Location Buying a piece of commercial property adds assurance that the space is secured and cannot be given to someone else. In a leasing situation, when the lease expires, the renewal process may not have the same initial terms, thus proving unfavorable to renew. However, when you purchase, your prime location is secured. 2. Equity As with a residential piece of property, a commercial owner may take out cash against the mortgage. In an emergency financial crisis, having a mortgage to borrow from lends a sense of security and provision of funds. Most commercial purchases will require 20 to 25 percent down on the purchase price, giving instant equity to the business owner. 3. Remodeling When you have bought a property, it is your to do with as you wish. Remolding, expansion and reconfiguration are yours for the taking. The ownership allows the business structure to be molded around the enterprise for a perfect fit and usage of space. 4. Tax Deductions The interest on a commercial loan is tax deductible, with allowances for deducting any depreciation. 5. Lease Your Excess Space If you own the property, you may lease your excess space without any restrictions from a third party over your head.

The Importance Of A Business Phone Line

Saturday, August 17, 2013
A phone line is as important to a business as having a building or functioning utilities. As the landline phone drops in popularity, many owners are looking for ways to keep up with modern technology. This must be tempered with the reality of business communications; staying on top of telecommunications technology is the best way to keep pace with the competition. Fortunately, business VOIP services offer users the best of both worlds. Your Connection to the World Though cell phones have become far more popular than typical phone lines, the business telephone system is still an important tool. Businesses need a direct line to the office, not to an individual. This allows businesses to maintain a sense of continuity as staff changes are made, and allows customers the satisfaction of knowing that those individuals who are actually at work are receiving their calls. This basic business necessity shows no sign of changing, even if the industries surrounding phone usage are constantly evolving. Leveraging New Technology Business telephones operate in much the same ways as they always have, but the technology behind these lines has grown rapidly. New business VOIP lines allow businesses the chance to take advantage of the best that telecommunications technology has to offer, all without having to increase their costs. In fact, VOIP lines tend to cost significantly less than those lines offered by the traditional phone companies, helping businesses to leverage technological growth into real savings. Perhaps best of all, this technology allows businesses to make use of lines as they see fit. Adding or removing a line is as easy as a few clicks, and businesses can allow their telecommunication needs to grow at the same pace as the rest of their operations. Reliability and Utility Of course, a business telephone system is not worth using if it is not reliable. Home phone owners can deal with a few dropped calls without worrying about the consequences, but a bad connection can actually cost businesses money. Fortunately, modern business VOIP technology provides a more reliable system for those who are aware of the importance of every phone call. If your business is able to keep its customers and clients on the line, it stands a much better chance of growing. If you have the right phone system, you can be assured that your calls will have stability.

Seven Reasons the Restaurant Industry is Still a Great Bet

Thursday, April 4, 2013
I placed my first bet on the restaurant industry years ago. I was a young army non-commissioned officer with a promising military career for the taking. The only problem was, I wanted to return to the civilian world and build a career in the restaurant industry. Just three days before my discharge date my unit's Sergeant Major, who had been both a supporter and mentor, dropped by the dining facility. In a comical attempt to encourage me to re-enlist he said "Wallace, it's not too late to change your mind and save yourself. I hear that in the civilian world, the lines for soup in New York stretch all the way to California". I smiled and replied, "With all do respect Sergeant Major, I guess that means the civilian world is in need of some well trained foodservice people". I noticed him chuckle and shake his head as he walked away. A few months later I was in college pursuing my degree in Hotel & Restaurant Management. Since then the industry has grown in ways that few could have predicted. My initial bet on the industry has paid off in spades. As a hospitality student, classically trained chef, restaurateur, and corporate executive, I have been privileged to experience the restaurant industry from several perspectives. Personal bias aside, I can say with certainty that there are many good reasons to know that the restaurant industry is still a great bet, in spite of our current economic storm. Here are seven reasons worth considering: 1. Needs Based - Restaurants serve two basic needs that are not going away any time soon. I am talking about the need to eat and the need to connect with others. When it comes to eating options, the industry has gone to great lengths to provide convenience. You can walk up, sit down, take it out, drive-through, and even drive up for curb-side services. When I travel outside of America, I am always amazed at how common it is for people to gather in town centers and open air cafes in the evenings to connect. Here at home, operations like Starbucks and casual bars have become our necessary "Third Place" for connecting away from home and work. 2. Lifestyle Driven - Generations "X" and "Y" have grown up eating meals prepared away from home. For them it is as common and expected as electric washers and dryers became for the previous generation. For these Americans, I don't envision a massive or permanent return to cooking any more than I envision a return to scrubbing boards and clotheslines. 3. Decentralized - Unlike some industries that have suffered the most recently, the restaurant industry has remained decentralized with resources and assets dispersed across the country. In the case of some of the biggest industry players, use of a franchise business model, has also provided dispersing of capital investment and risk. What this means is that the industry is not subject to a massive implosion like the automobile or banking industries have experienced. 4. Massive Scale - With more than a half trillion dollars in annual U.S. Sales and nearly a million restaurants nation wide, the restaurant industry's size attracts support from a wide range of industries. From back office technology to cooking equipment, companies across the globe invest heavily in research and development with the understanding that there will be a market for their best innovations. 5. Developed Infrastructure - Over the past few decades the restaurant industry has amassed an enviable infrastructure. From state-of-the-art distribution and logistics to national online reservations and employee training systems the industry has moved closer to being "Plug-and-Play" for even the smallest operators. 6. Entrepreneurial - In spite of the industry's size, according to national restaurant association statistics, 7 out of 10 restaurants are single unit operations. Fortunately, the barriers to entry into the industry have remained relatively low. As a result the industry enjoys constant bottom up innovation. The next trend is as likely to come from a small Cuban Diner in Miami as a heavily staffed test kitchen in Dallas. 7. An Affordable Luxury - Now once the economy begins to recover there will be some industries that will come back slower than others. One of the reasons restaurants in general have not fallen as sharply as others sectors, is that, eating out is still an affordable luxury even in difficult times. Most consumers don't have to take out a loan to enjoy a meal out. For this same reason pinned-up demand should drive strong growth as things recover. For all the reasons listed the restaurant industry is an exceptional source of opportunity for millions of Americans, who own, manage, and work in the industry across the nation. It stands and will continue to stand as an excellent example of sustainable healthy capitalism at its best. You can bet on it!

Mobile Technology Meets the Restaurant Industry

Thursday, March 21, 2013
Many industries can benefit from mobile technology - not just the industries that seem to go hand in hand with technological advances. One such industry that can join with mobile technology is the restaurant industry. This occurs because mobile technology offers innovative solutions that can make any industry run more smoothly by increasing the efficiency and productivity of that industry. QR Technology QR technology is one of the best ways by which the restaurant industry can benefit from mobile technology. To start with, you need to forget everything you know about QR technology. Most people have a very puerile and naïve understanding of this far-reaching technology. For example, what do you think of when someone says "QR"? You probably think of a black and white barcode. Did you know that QR codes don't need to be black, white, and boring? It is now possible to create custom-designed QR codes: codes that are colorful and creative. These codes allow you to blend designs with your company's logo, as well as background imagery, in order to create a code that truly stands out. What's more, QR codes do way more than what most people think they do. Many people think that QR codes simply bring a user to a website. This is a very limited understanding of QR technology; QR codes can actually do a number of different things. If you're in the restaurant business, you can use QR codes to do the following whenever someone scans a code: - Send a menu to someone's email - Send promotional coupons and specials to someone's cell phone - Display a detailed map explaining how to get to your restaurant - Provide photos of your food and atmosphere - Allow a user to watch a video advertisement of your restaurant - Allow a user to enter a contest And more! The sky is the limit when it comes to QR technology. This technology is incredibly versatile, and can be used to solve a multitude of problems. Smart Sites Smart sites provide a great opportunity to anyone in the restaurant industry: namely, the opportunity to own a website that can be altered at anytime by anyone... regardless of web know-how. This is indispensable to the restaurant industry; because restaurants are commonly adding and taking away meal specials and promotions, as well as commonly altering menu items, they need a website that is dynamic and alterable. If a restaurant's website is difficult and time-consuming to edit, that restaurant runs the risk of providing out-dated information that could potentially infuriate customers. More importantly, websites need to be able to be viewed on a mobile device. Many people browse the Internet on a mobile phone; therefore, it is very unwise to have a website that cannot be viewed on this device. Together, QR technology and mobile smart sites provide two unique sets of solutions that the restaurant industry can take full advantage of.
