Raise your left hand if your business needs more new customers. Now raise your right hand if your business needs to keep existing customers. I suspect both your hands are (figuratively) up. Every business wants to grow.
Because you are reading this, chances are you don't want to just grow. You want high growth, explosive growth, the kind of growth that weather satellites can see from space.
Lead generation (part of marketing) and lead conversion (sales) is undergoing a transformation. One could call it the growth acceleration or growth automation era. Also know as growth hacking.
Up until a few years ago growth hacking was only used in high tech startups.That has changed completely. It is now used increasingly and with great effect by existing businesses in just about every possible niche you can think of.
The Small Business Growth Challenge is for entrepreneurs, small business owners, marketers, and all customer facing staff who needs a hands-on resource for increasing revenue that is fast, easy, and requires little to no financial investment.
More specifically this if for you if:
This challenge will be a good fit for your business if:
A course in branding and creating marketing materials. Or a course for writing programming code and creating websites.
The answer to all your problems. You're still going to have to tweak the weekly challenges for your individual business. Every business is different. This is a guide that can help you implement these tools and techniques in your own business.
A fix for your customer fulfillment problems. You still have to deliver an outstanding product or service. Using these hacks will expose your weaknesses in delivery. Which is a great thing.
Every week I will be presenting you with a new fast, focused and energizing action - digital, analog, and the good old in-person - to help you grow your business.
The techniques are easy to understand and easy to execute. I've boiled down small business growth to a series of simple actions that combine to generate serious growth.
When you accept the biggest challenge is to implement... to make growing your business a daily 15 minute habit.
You'll spend a couple of minutes learning the technique. Then you'll apply it in your own business. (If you have any questions, you can use the Discussion thread that we provide with each action.
You can't screw this up. There's no wrong way to implement every weekly challenge. And each weekly challenge you accept is a step towards more growth.
Pick those that sound good to you, and try them. If you like it, and it generates some positive results, double down on it.
If you don't like it, you'll have trouble getting yourself to do it. So stop trying and move on to something else.
Do what you like. Do what works for your business. And the growth will follow.
You don't need a day a week to grow you business. You don't even need an hour a day. All it takes is 15 minutes a day. Five days a week.
Almost all of the methods included in the challenge cost nothing to action. You don't need money, as most people incorrectly assume, to grow your business. You need a little personal effort and some personal attention.
And that's the challenge: Some intentional action, which requires no investment, except for some elbow grease.
