  1. 1. Marketing a Small Business: The One Thing You Must Have 1 www.fasttrackyoursales.co.uk 08452570073 email: support@fasttrackyoursales.co.uk
  2. 2. Marketing a small business well makes a huge difference to your success.Yet there is an important step before that. If you don’t do this one thing, your business will not be thesuccess it could be. Did you know that very few individuals set themselves goals? Less than 1 percent ofadults have clearly stated goals. What are interesting are those who do earn as much as 10 times moremoney than those who don’t!What many business owners marketing a small business rarely think about it that before you set a goalyou need a vision for your business? So let’s look at two phases to think about.Phase 1Think about what you want your business to look like in the future?What size do you want it to be?How many customers do you want to have?What kind of services and products do you want to be providing?Be clear about the kind of business you want to build.Phase 2Now you have a clear vision for your business. Next you need to create some very specific goals. Byachieving these you will ensure you realize your vision.When marketing a small business, there are many goals that you can set for both you and your business.You might start with some really big ones;Like an income goal to double your turnover, launching 3 new products in a year, or a different service,or even entering a new market. 2 www.fasttrackyoursales.co.uk 08452570073 email: support@fasttrackyoursales.co.uk
  3. 3. The thing to remember is that you need to break these goal down into even smaller ones that will helpyou deliver on them. Your Online Sales !Let’s say you set an income target for your business. Think about how you might achieve this.You may decide to develop an online part to your business and capitilise on the 90 billion searches amonth on Google!!To do this you decide to learn about how to market a small business online by attending a course. Thenyou set a goal that you will invest 2 hours per week implementing what you have learnt.Your next goal is that in these 2 hours you will write 1 article and 1 blog post.Ok, so now you have a vision, some big goals and a number of small specific ones. What’s keyis keeping your vision and goals alive. In the book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill, herecommends writing your goals on an index card and taking it with you everywhere. Take a tip from Usain BoltVisualize your goals every day. Take a few quiet minutes to visualize exactly how you want your vision tobe or how you want your life and business to be when you have achieved your goals.Notice how this makes you feel if you are not inspired maybe you need to think again.Over the last few years this has become a recognized activity to help achieve big things. All successfulbusiness owners admit this is an important part of their day.Finally, I suggest that you ask a friend or colleague to be an Accountability Partner.Have someone who can support you. One of the things I did with a business associate was to have a 10 3 www.fasttrackyoursales.co.uk 08452570073 email: support@fasttrackyoursales.co.uk
  4. 4. minute call once a week. We shared what progress we had made and discussed what we had learned ifwe hadn’t quite achieved what we planned.In summary, start with a vision, create big goals, and break these down in to smaller goals. Then turnthese into monthly weekly and daily goals.So if you want to be in the top 1% of successful people marketing a small business ………..give yourself agoal to aim at.
