- Be attentive to current events. Capitalize on challenges that are in high demand by pivoting your marketing strategy to target that market.
- When shifting into a new market, be mindful of scalability. How can the company grow sustainably? What structures need to be in place to ensure growth?
- Listen to the customer. Better pricing and new technologies can only go so far if the product is not applicable to the customer’s needs.
- Trust your gut as a business owner. We are approached daily with new opportunities. Do not be afraid to take calculated risks.
- Getting the right mix of resources committed to the return on investment expected is key to a great cost analysis.
